SKS Trigger Work

Post by narcosis2001 » Tue Jun 25, 2013 4:35 pm

I recently picked up a nice sks paratrooper and it shoots great, but the trigger is pretty gritty and far from smooth.
Is there anybody in the St Pete/Tampa area that would be willing to either help me or do a trigger job to hopefully smooth it out and make it even more fun and accurate.
Will gladly pay for your time and help. [-o<
Thx.

nope, but you can send it off to a guy named Bill Springfield who is famous for his SKS triggers, had several done about 10 years ago

most home SKS trigger jobs end up being a HACK job and then the owner usually dumps the rifle or has to buy all new parts and send it to someone else
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

yep, I forgot about kivaari as well, that name has gotten more popular in the last few years,but I've never seen or felt his work, might be worth researching

We need an update.

I've sent several HK Navy lowers to Bill for upgraded trigger. Does good work for sure.
