I bought a Yugo SKS and the dern thing wouldn't cycle. It would short stroke .The gas control switch was corroded and leaking gas. I went to a friends shop and made another ( custom fit). I dremeled all the rust and scale away from the gas houseing and made a new gas on /off swith tube. I drilled the gas hole slightly larger incase I misaligned it while drilling.It lined up perfectly and I made a tight fit .It will turn but takes alittle effort. I will leave it in the gas on position for now on.I even made it fit the gas tube real tight.I gave the lip a slight taper and took some emory paper and polished it till it would just fit and fully seat its self.I went function shot it and it worked flawless. Thought I would share, War Dawg

Where did you order your SKS from so I know not to get one from there.

Sounds like you did a pretty good job getting yours to work though. Do you have any pictures?
