ANY GUNSMITHS IN SOCAL THAT WILL WORK ON AN SKS?
« on: May 01, 2011, 12:58:23 PM »
Does anyone know of a smith in SoCal that will work on an SKS?  I know that the rifle isn't an M1A or Garand, but I'm still hoping to get a smoother trigger pull out of mine.  Thanks!

Some time back a guy from Texas was running ad's in Shotgun News for a good SKS trigger.

You would mail the entire trigger group and for $25 he claimed a "Match Grade  trigger pull.

If you have some back issues of Shotgun News , it may be worth a look .

The current issue did not have the ad running .

Good luck!

The guy in Texas (Baja Oklahoma) goes by the handle "Kivaari", and does a great job on the trigger group. I sent him mine, and for about 50 bucks had it back in about a week. He knows his stuff, there's been several articles in gun mags about him.
