Hey, is there anywhere I could get a good trigger job on my norinco sks? The trigger isnt horrible but I am going to use it as a deer hunting rifle so I want every advantage I can get. So thanks in advance and happy posting

You can do it yourself without much trouble if you're into DIY work. It's been quite awhile since I did an SKS trigger, but all you have to do install a Wolff spring replacement pack, and smooth out and polish the sear and the rails. The difference in pull will be night and day. You can get 3-4lbs with almost no creep and a smooth pull.

Otherwise I'd go with B. Springfield...

All Kivaari does is the same work that you can do yourself. There are trigger job tutorials all over the net on how to do it yourself. But he's a good option for those who don't want to do it themselves.

An SKS trigger can be tuned to be really sweet. Far more so than Kivaari or the home trigger job allows for. But it requires either hard chroming the parts or finding properly heat treated ones that will keep the settings. Otherwise the soft parts wear and become unsafe in time. When I used to provide that service, I chose the hard chroming route. You can really tune out a lot of the creep and make it crisp and light.

Hey Mike, can you post a few links of these "do-it-yourself" trigger jobs?

I like this Kivari guy, but I'd rather pocket the dough.

Probably the easiest to follow is this one: http://www.surplusrifle.com/reviews/...ring/index.asp

That site also has a lot of great info on the SKS as well as info about accessories, etc.

A google search will turn up other sites with trigger job info too.

Matt, be sure to grab the Wolf spring kit for it. You'll have it apart anyway, might as well upgrade the springs. It makes a noticeable difference.
