I am now thinking about glassbedding. doing the trigger job myself (kit cost $15 shipped plus time). casting and reloading (old plan for ammo for it).

have to look up the prices for the bedding, read somewhere jb weld can work for bedding. going to do a little looking around sksboard, someone on there as had to do it sometime.

SKS is a pretty darn good accurate rifle stock. I honestly would invest in powder, cases and bullets. Maybe some good sights?

it is scoped right now. may get some of the plastic colored front post and adjustment tool

I want to bring down the trigger pull. I believe mine is around 8 or 9 lbs. this springs and the little bit of work drops almost half.

Triggers on an SKS are quite tricky. They love to have 1/4-3/8" of creep followed by a stout trigger pull.

A few years ago I read up from some sites on how to do the job. Off memory it is quite a chore.

The admin is pretty close up there about devolping a load...but before you do that...how do you have the scope mounted?

If you have the scope mounted to the receiver bolt cover (or whatever you call that rear top cap that covers the bolt/spring), that could be part of the problem. About 5-6 years ago, when I had a scope set up on a SKS in that manner, it added about 2 MOA of play. I ordered from Choate (off memory) a scope mount that I had to drill and tap the side of the receiver inder that rear cap on the left hand side of the reciever.

That worked real well!

I have a receaver cover mount with shell defelter. over look rings. stud locking screws that I need to replace. softass metal.

no much in to drilling the receaver.

i know the walk though your talking about. it is on milsurprifles.com (or is that a online store. don't really want to send $60 to send it to the only guy in america who does trigger jobs on them. he is busy as hell lol

I got my bullet mold in for it lee 312-160-2r which is .312 160gr 2 cavity. if it drops like my other lee molds, I am looking at 311 to 314 dia, 150 to 175gr bullets. gotta clean it up and smoke it. do a few test bullets to how they come out.

need powder, primers and brass, oops and dies lol
http://www.kivaari.com/ web site of the guy who does the trigger job.

he is making match triggers for $150 Shocked
