On the last stripper full of ammo hold up on the nose of the top round as up push down this will help load faster.

I have one of the M types. Shoots real well and I like being able to use the same mags as I have for my M70
Paid 275 for it a couple/few years ago.

Went through the removable mag merry-go-round with my Russian Model 54. I bought a Tapco 20 rd mag at the gun show in Norfolk, and it wouldn't fit deep enough to engage the latch. Being new, I bumped it until it marked the plastic and then very patiently worked those spots down with 150 grit sandpaper. The whole process took about an hour & 1/2 (Well, I was watching football, too) but now it locks right up like a champ. Both of the other mags I got with the SKS had been similarly modified, but a little more coarsely. All of the material that needed to be removed was in the top portion that inserts into the well, with none needing to be removed from the front hinge point. Haven't goten to shoot it with this mag yet, but it cycles manually just fine.

I picked up a 78 Yugo back in March. It came with some brand of plastic 30 round mag. The bolt would go fully forward with it. Also the safety was bad and I replaced the spring.

A few weeks ago I was looking for a different mag for it. I'd heard a lot of good about the Tapco 20 mags. I ended up getting it. It took a little bit of sanding on the inside of the mag wells. It didn't take much to make it fit.

I FINALLY got to go shoot it last Monday. It wasn't cycling so I figured it was the gas port. It was a total riot to shoot!! But I had to cycle it manually. It didn't seem to feed real well. I don't know if it was the mag causing it or because of the gas port.

I brought it back home and tore it down. OK, I'm still new the SKS...I didn't know the piston was suppose to come out of the gas tube. Anyway the piston felt real sticky in the tube. I got it out and it was FILTHY!!! I soaked it down with some Hopps 9 then started to work on the tube. Did the same to it and let it soak a while. Anyway I got it cleaned up and the piston shining like you could shave in it.

Now I need to go get some more ammo and see if that fixed the cycling problem. Plus since I shot it, I want more!! Sorry for the long post but since the OP said he was new I just wanted to share my little bit of info I had. And like someone else stated....clean, clean, clean!!

I bought a Yugo and ordered all the tapco goodies for it. Once I had all the new parts on I shouldered the rifle and immediately disliked it. The balance is way off. I'm not one of those guys opposed to sporterizing milsups, but this one just didn't work for me. The rifle went back to original, all the tapco stuff went on ebay, and I eventually built a AR to fill that tactical rifle need in my life.

Its probably your mag, they are junk. Ive had several and none of them would feed properly. I never had a tapco mag tho but im not wasting anymore cash on sks mags, you can reload faster with stripper clips anyway. Plus those sks mags are a pain in the azz because of the long front part on them, they get hung on anything and everything.

It helps if you buy Mobil1 synthetic oil or DexronIII.(my favorite)

Then you're not buying gun lube by the ounce...

Actually, for solely long-term storage purposes, you could probably coat

your weapons with much worse than lard...


...I'm just tired of being treated like it's my lucky

day because I can purchase a 3oz. bottle of some name

brand gun oil for enough money to buy a quart of something

else just as good.
