Spare parts list for 10/22 and Yugo SKS
« on: July 05, 2011, 09:30:41 PM »
Not that I can actually afford to buy anything these days  :-)

I was wondering what kind of spare parts I should some day get together for my rifles. 10/22 and SKS) If you have actual part numbers and sources that would be very helpful also.

Thanks!

I don't know about the SKS.

For the 10/22 you don't really need any spares. I've had mine since 75. I bot a heavy barrel and stock in the mid 90's. In 05 I bot a new target hammer, fancy red trigger and new springs (as preventive maintenance only). Last year I bot a different barrel and a new extractor to fix a FTE problem on unfired rounds.

All in all, it's a tough durable rifle that will last many decades. Buy the way mine has +- 200,000 rounds thru it.  ^:)^ Still shoot rifleman.

Got 3 of the 10-22's and they get the snot shot out of them. Don't need spare parts, just good cleaning....O.L.

Thanks for your input but I am going to have to disagree with both of your ascertions<SP>  that Ruger has somehow made the perfect machine that does not break. I have personally seen too many malfunctions to know better. While they are certainly dependable they are not infallable.

A malfunctioning firearm becomes nothing but an expensive paperweight when you don't have the $5 part that needs replaced.  I am just trying to determine what parts are reasonable to expect to fail on either type of firearm.

I don't think that the others were saying that the 10/22s don't need repair or spare parts, just the they don't often break O0.

If I was putting together a spares kit, I'd include:

-Recoil buffer
-Cocking Handle, Guide Rod & Recoil Spring Assembly
-Extractor, plunger & spring
-Hammer
-Bolt lock spring
-spare magazine

The recoil buffer is probably the first part the will fail and the recoil spring is easy to kink when reassembling the rifle.  I've only heard of one hammer breaking (manufacturing defect).  But you might have to fit a new hammer.  Having a replacement for every spring probably isn't bad.

You might want to ask 10/22 drivers what part(s) have ever broken on their rifle and making that your list.  But oladcock is correct, most of the time when a 10/22 acts up, it's due to poor cleaning.  So a good boresnake, stiff nylon brush and a can of CLP or GunScrubber should be in your range box along with the spares.

I hope that this helps.

for the 10/22, i would suggest a complete set of springs. 

After about 15K orunds, mine did wear out, resulting in some doubling and tripling.

for the SKS, go to gunboards.com, join (membership is free), search the SKS/AK forum.  I'm guessing, but  a firing pin at the least would be good insurance.

Better to have and not need, than to need and not have.

With that in mind, I have the following spares on hand for the 10/22 rifle:

Action screw
complete trigger group
complete bolt assembly
charging handle/guide rod
receiver pins


I have the following spares on hand for the SKS rifle:

Complete trigger group
Complete bolt  (already fitted and headspaced, ready to drop in)
Stock spring (fits under the trigger group in a recess in the stock)


Many of the above parts are assemblies; you can buy the individual parts within those assemblies, and save money, but repairing a downed rifle with a complete replacement assembly takes but a brief moment. 


To be honest, what I did to get these spares is to buy a complete used rifle that was in poor, but functional condition.  The spare trigger group for the SKS, for instance, sells for about $100, and I picked up a *rough* SKS for $150... 

YMMV.

Neglected to notice that your SKS is Yugo 59/66 model.   

In addition to the above list of spare parts, you will also want the following:
Gas shutoff valve
"  retainer and spring

There is a company that makes the gas shutoff valve out of stainless steel.  I highly recommend it:
Gas valve: $9.99
http://www.cncwarrior.com/comersus/store/comersus_viewItem.asp?idProduct=1
Gas valve retainer: $2.49
http://www.cncwarrior.com/comersus/store/comersus_viewItem.asp?idProduct=26
Gas valve spring: $1.31
http://www.cncwarrior.com/comersus/store/comersus_viewItem.asp?idProduct=22

* I am not affiliated with the above company in any way.  I have ordered these exact parts from them in the past, and am satisfied with the quality of the workmanship of their products.   YMMV.

Yeah we had two extractors get pulled out by chamber flags in Dadeville. So that is a good spare part to have. I have one 10/22 that had the ejector brake on it. 
A Hessian captain (one of the 30,000 German mercenaries used by England) wrote in 1778, "Call this war by whatever name you may, only call it not an American rebellion; it is nothing more or less than a Scots-Irish Presbyterian rebellion."

10/22 should have a spare extractor and attendant parts. Spare firing pin and attendant parts. Spare hammer spring strut assembly. Everything else is pretty long haul.

Thanks Cameron

Has anyone at Appleseed ever though about a day long armorers course on the 10/22 or other rifles?

As you know learning to shoot is only  part of the equation. Learning to maintain any tool that  you use is just as important as learning to use it.

There is one. It is teaching on the line. You will learn as an IIT about all things that can go wrong (usual cause is located between stock and ground) and how to fix them. Call it on the job training.

Yep, the vast majority of gun malfunctions are cleaning issues. I'll repair guns if time allows but most of the time we're better serving the student(s) to loan them another gun and keep trucking! :) Not to mention possible liablity issues...O.L.

I intend to teach a 10/22 specific cleaning and tuning class at the Osage RBC. I'm sure I will have no shortage of folks wanting to learn. The class will deal with reliability tuning with accurizing as a secondary point. I will teach everything I have learned over the last 23 odd years. Ought to be slightly educational.
