    Anyone know of a DIY trigger job for an SKS 56 ? I know I could send it in and have it done but I enjoy doing my own work if possible. It shoots great and I purchased it NIB in the mid to late 80's for $80 and 100 RNDs of ammo.

    The trigger has a LONG pull but a pretty crisp break for an SKS.

    Thanks for any info

    Well I got a Wolff spring kit and took it to my LGS. He did it all for about $45.

    He took it down from about 6 1/2 lbs to about 4 1/4 lbs.

    I'm pretty good at mid level gun smithing. SKS's are pretty basic and I'd like to try and do it myself.

    Where did you get the Wolff trigger kit ? Thanks for the reply and info !!

    I found a video on you tube for doing it yourself.
    Here is one of them by Iraqveteran8888.

    I bought a sks last year from a guy from work. It's a norinco with a tapco stock and the original stock with scope and mount. He gave me a video gun smithing trigger work for this gun also. Its a professional gun smithing video It's a well made video to do the work . It's a lot more complicated than it looks. I have gun smithed all my personal guns but even with the video it's going to take awhile to do a good job correctly . I will try Try to find the name on it if I can find it

    Murray guns make a 922
    Compliant trigger, sear, and hammer. The sear and hammer will take up
    Some of the slack but not effect the pull. It will also give you the extra parts make the stock change legal.

    ...You shouldn't do it by yourself unless you know exactly what you're doing...You can completely ruin the trigger group.
