    New to the group.

    I have a yugo sks that will only fire one round and will not eject. I have replaced the gas tube and rod, and operating rod.:mad: and the brass is stuck. Any suggestion?

    Thanks

    Is it on single fire? There's a switch on it that makes it single fire. It suppose to be used for the grenade launcher.

    Are you saying that there is an empty case stuck in the chamber? If so, a cleaning rod and a block of wood to tap on it will probably knock it loose.

    Will it eject unfired rounds?

    The Yugo is different from the oher SKS variants because it has a grenade launcher. When using the grenade laucnher, a special blank cartridge launches the grenade. The Yugo has a valve that turns off the gas to operate the rifle in semi when launching the grenades, Valve goes bad for wear/corrosion, leaks, rifle does not cycle in semi- OR- you have the valve in the single shot mode.

    It's where the flip up sights are when they're down, when the switch is on to the right then it should keep the flip up sights from flipping up when it's on the left position then the sights should come up and lock into place. It's 3-4 in. from the muzzle.

    just replaced the old gas value with a murray gas locking value. The old one had a bunch of little divets on it. Here's hoping!
