Well I got my SKS all cleaned up and ready to rock.

taking a little nap then off I go.

The firing pin sure is sticky no matter how much I cleaned it.
Dash of lube and hoping for the best :-)

Guess I can load and fire 1 round at a time.

I've had to do that due to a faulty gas assembly. Do your best and good luck. (Retroactively applied since you've already shot it seems) how'd it go?

Well I didn't shoot myself or anyone else so that was a good.

It was my first time at a firing range so the sound of gun fire had me wanting to hit the dirt lol.

I seen a few other people shooting rifles (caliber) like my sks and couldnt believe the sound it made.
Was seriously petrified to fire the first shot.
Once I got that out of the way I ended up firing 300 rounds down range :-)

I need a stapler for the paper targets next time I go. maybe binoculars to see where I hit after shooting. I used the sks iron sites at different settings. I seen a fella with a dust cover and scope combo that he says cost 100 bux. seems like a good deal.

The 60 yard targets were hit about 50-55 times.
I went zero for approx 100 rounds at the 100 yard targets :-(
Most of my shots were fired from standing position. My shoulder hurt more shooting off the block support.

oddly enough I hit more often from standing :?:

Definitely heading out there again in the next couple weeks. I need to pick up a .22 plinker to avoid bankrupting myself with ammo purchases.

ohh yeah, the one BIG piss off I had was with my trigger group/assembly falling out the bottom of the gun.

Before the day was done I determined that the safety switch adds and removes tension on the trigger group.
If the safety was off there was more tension on the trigger group so it stayed put.
If the safety was on tension was lessened and the trigger group would literally fall out after racking in a round.

I asked a couple folks about weather it looked like the gun was put together ok and they said yeah.
Also compared my sks to about 3 other ones and they all looked to be locked in the same way.

*shrugs* :?

I also got dinged for two no-no's
Touched my gun on a green flag and touched my ammo on what was still a red flag but the RSO had come by saying we "were" going green.

The reason I touched the rifle was to spin it around on the rack to show someone the goofy trigger problem.
It's real easy to be mesmerized by the rifles as you chat with another enthusiast about them.
Some russian dude was showing me his sks and scope/dust cover combo but ended up swiping people with the gun.

funny enough, i know exactly who you are talking about. :p That problem is with the trigger assembly not being jammed in hard enough. Push it against something and get it to really lock in or use a tool. I usually hit it with a brick (no really, i do) We have comic con on june 8th, but after that, there should be a weekend we can get some folks out to join you.

looking forward to meeting some of you guys at the range.

after an internet search it seems the trigger falling out is sorta common problem.

Was looking at some savage .22 rifles. I cant believe lever actions cost more then bolts and the bolts cost more then semi autos :?

going to need to do some more reading. I dont mind spending a few hundred bux on a .22 and a scope but I dont want to regret not having spent more on something better.

are weekends the best time to hit the range? I'm taking some vacation time in june and can make it to silverdale during the weekday.

SKS is a funny rifle.

I made sure to leave the safety off the whole day and the trigger never fell out YAY :clap:

So now the magazine will occasionally pop open after firing a shot lol.

What I do now is support the rifle under the magazine and all is well.

Well enough that I can hit the paper targets from 100 yards from a standing position 8-)
