So my Yugo SKS has one of these...



and the loaded one for mine is apparently the bottom one here...




Anyone done this? Just seems to look way different.

Proof?
I've seen it happen (as you noted) with the cosmo, but never seen this occur.



This is what I suspect he has witnessed also......i've never heard of that.

Agreed. I've flushed a scary amount of primer-sealer bits out of the bolt upon cleaning, but never had a slam fire. I guess it could happen...

Yes this is an aftermarket to prevent slam fires. Have had it happen at least twice. I have only shot wolf w/ it. Not the main reason I need to get a new one. I figured since i need one I might as well fix the slam fire problem as well. It just looks odd to me w/ the one end flat looking like that.

It's never happened to me either but there are lots of stories over on the SKS boards. It's not hard to believe if you look at the primer of a round after slamming the action home. There will be a small indent on the primer.

you just need to clean it no need for a new firing pin.

IMHO, stay away from all the aftermarket crap for the sks, nothin but problems!

Probably right. I may just save a few bucks and get another stock pin. Again its happened like twice and once was at the range. I just dont like it to happen and have any issues at the range about firing more than once a sec.

Oh, and cleaning it is why I need a new one. Not sure I want to go there yet though.
