Got to finally shoot my SKS on semi auto. god is it fun! one question though. I thought the bolt would stay locked in the back position after the final shot? is this not so?

It is with all my gun. But then mine is Norinco. I don't know if some other make is different. Seems like they'd all have that feature. It's really nice though. And yeah. They are fun to shoot!

Check the back of the magazine area just under the boltface - there should be a small plunger that lifts to hold the bolt when the mag follower is fully up (the gun is empty). Maybe this plunger is dirty, or damaged?

idk. it doesnt make sense to me because if i pull the bolt back when the magazine is empty it locks it back. just doesnt seem to want to do it when the mag has bullets then runs out

nick,
your first post kinda confused me. You said "finally got shoot my SKS on semi auto" is there another setting on your sks?

SKS Lockback

Nick:

I use aftermarket 30-round mags in both my Yugo bullpup and my Norinco, and if I get just a bit of oil in the action, sometimes the last-round-holdback doesn't function.

I attribute the fact that you can manually get it to latch is because you aren't slamming the bolt back and then forward, as happens when you take a shot, and the system functions as it does; under pressure and very quickly!
