Diagrams to take the SKS apart?
« on: April 03, 2011, 08:38:27 AM »
I'm sure this has been beat to death but I can't seem to find it in the search button. I would like the way to dismantle this gun to clean or inspect it. Kinda like a step by step. Sorry for beating the dead horse and thank you for getting me to the right area!!!
Do I really need one?

Thank you for the Diagram and a step by step instruction manual...

No problem.
Although your rifle should look more like this when disassembling a "new to you" milsurp rifle.
You'd be surprised at the rust and cosmoline you find
inside the butt stock parts and under the sling swivels.
Depending on the condition, I sometimes oil the leather tabs on the sling with some leather oil.
I had already assembled the bolt when I took this pic but you get the idea.

There are some youtube videos about field stripping that can get you part of the way there as well. And I believe there is a DVD for gunsmiths as well if you want to get really in depth.
Well, it's official. All three of the branches of the Federal Government are using the constitution as if it were TP. RIP Freedom and freewill the old republic has been replaced by a very potent kleptocracy. We're getting what we deserve, I guess.

I've gotta say that my love of these rifles really took off when I learned to disassemble and appreciate the -- design-- ruggedness -- simplicity -- the SKSness.  jd
No man is born so stupid or worthless that he has nothing to teach me.

On my worst day, I may find someone whose day I can improve.

Never thought of that

Yea, look around there. I downloaded an excellent 2 parter - disassembly & reassembly - a while back. Lot's of little details/gotchas, closeups, etc. It was a real pro job.
