Exclamation Need help fixing SKS carbine



Advertise Here

I'm not 100% certain if it's called the barrel band or not..
The pin that fastens the barrel band to the barrel would not budge, so i hit it a bit too hard and cracked the band:




Would it be foolish to try and tack weld it in place? One local smith wants to charge me as much as the rifle's worth!

ps--it's a chinese Norinco carbine with spike bayo

Suggestions, please

That is the handguard ferrule. It probably won't budge even if it is cracked, but a small tack weld would not hurt a thing.

Here's another photo:




It's not on the upper handguard, it's attatched to the barrel. It secures the stock to the barreled action

Ok, could not exactly tell from the picture. The same applies to the lower stock ferrule, I would just tac weld it and grind flush where it is cracked.

Alcohol was involved. I was going to re-install what i thought was the original stock in place of the Ram-Line, but it turned out to be the wrong stock and i got a bit forceful with it



FYI--The guys over at SKS boards are hoarding these things

FYI, you don't need to touch that in order to remove/replace the stock.

You are going in the wrong direction my friend, $60 dollars, the man has an SKS that is defective. What that SKS needs is a person that can use it for parts.

I may have better results with my projects if I start drinking. I usually F*** everything up when I'm sober.

Force the ferrule snug to the stock and weld it.

Question

Any other suggestions or tips (other than selling the inaccurate piece of scrap metal for $55 LoL)...?

I want to avoid tack welding it if possible

Ok, i was messing with ya there, the only thing i can think of is to tack weld and grind it down. the reason the Gunsmith said it will cost so much is because all the other crap that needs to be removed,the gas port bayo lug and front sight. And the SKS i have found out to be good out to 500 yards with the irons. Great gun .

Thsi is what I would do. Drill a piece of hardwood in half the size of the barrel behinf the ferrule. cut the wood at an angle to the hole so it has a point, with the tip of the point being at the hole. Cut the wood in half right down the hole. Take the gas tube and stock off the gun. Push the piece of wood as far forward as you can go behind the band. Clamp the wood together. This piece will prevent the band hole around the barrel from elongating when trying to get the piece of metal back into shape. Take a wooden dowel and with a good bunch of slow light taps take a hammer and reshape the barrel band. A big and quick hit will make a deformation in the metal and you'll be dealing with another fix. Nice and slow like bodyworkers do on metal fenders.

If he could do that he would not have taken it to a gunsmith in the first place.
