In the very old models, I have seen one " slam-fire."

I own a Norinco and an imported Russian, and neither have fired on their own or slam fired !

Have you ever just thought about not chambering a round until you are ready to fire?!?

I too like SKS's! They're made out of machined or cast parts as opposed to stamped sheet metal. They may be a little heavier than AK's, but they shoot extremely well.

The idea of cosmoline causing a slam fire does make sense to me. I have an 8mm mauser that had supposedly been cleaned up by the previous owner. I had a heck of a time getting it out of all the nooks and cranies. That stuff will stick anything in place. I could believe that it could lock a firing pin in place in a bolt.

AWWWWW The SKS got a little TV time. That's nice. You don't get to see it all that much because of the HUGE shadow of the AK. I'm another fan of the old rifle. I got the Norinco too, it's pretty dang nice shooter. I'm looking at a couple more a friend has. Maybe I"ll get another of the old friends.

The SKS definetly A good rifle as it is well made an simple --- I feed mine lead boolits at around 2000 fps. with good accuracy --- also have done extensive trigger work on it making it A pleasure to shoot.
