I removed the stock (load from the top of rifle) "fixed" magazine from my Chinese SKS about 20 years ago, so that I could use removable higher capacity magazines. Now, I want to go back to the original "fixed" magazine.
Surprisingly, I found the old stock-issue magazine....now I can't remember how to re-install it. So far, I'm thinking that I first "hook" the front part of the stock magazine....then try to get the rear section to go in. It goes so far...then there is a "bump" on the sheet metal of the rear of the magazine that stops it. Seems to me I have to just pop or even force it the last 1/4 inch until it is "home". Is this how it's done? Thanks for any help.
