Hey All,
Just picked up a nice '54 Tula. Decided to leave it as-is. Only thing I REALLY dont like about it is the trigger- absolutely terrible. Did a search, didnt find anything here.

Anyone know of a good place near San Diego that knows these rifles/ can do good trigger work?

That or some good tutorials on-line?

Anyone done this themselves?

Thanks!

Did he return the original parts to you that he changed out?

Just curious, would like to keep all of original parts together in case I sell one someday... or.... ?

Blitz, I cleaned up my own trigger on my Russian, my bud sent his to Kivaari. He does a very nice job, and he uses what you sent him. A complete replacement trigger group, to keep yours original, will run about $80. Send that to him and another $65 to have that worked over. Quote from his website:
The price of $59.95 + $5 shipping includes carefully cutting and changing YOUR sear/hammer geometry for a minimal, acceptable positive engagement. A Wolff sear and hammer spring are installed upon re-assembly. I tune the trigger spring myself. The safety function is effected with a minimal first stage. Anything that precludes smoothness is corrected by lapping, stoning, or filing as needed. Crooked disconnectors are straightened if needed.

I believe he mails you back the original parts in a plastic bag. Its good stuff.

Now @ Blitz now I think the Para I gave had a trigger job down or its really light. That is the lightest trigger I have ever felt on an SKS.

This is correct. He offered to mail back any parts if I wanted. Again, I really can't say enough good stuff about his work.

sweet. I was thinking about bout doing my para's trigger...because its a para and you can hear the crunch when it shoots lol.

I think he gives discounts as well if you are the SKS Board Forums. I would have to double check on that.

PS: I highly don't recommend doing it your self. SKS trigger job is very complex, small itty bitty parts and really is a pain in the ***. If you watch that kid on youtube he is having a hard time and he is just doing kitchen repairs. I would leave it to the man in TX.

I wish you were kidding. SKS trigger job is as easy as it gets, parts are minimal, and IF you ever get a real gun, please do not take it apart.

That right there is funny, I don't care who ya are!:laugh:
Seriously, the SKS trigger is probably the least complex ever made, hell.......the whole rifle is!
Understanding trigger/sear engagement is the important thing, if you don't know what you're doing, please leave it to an expert. An accidental discharge, or a full auto burst, will not only ruin your day, could possibly ruin your life.....and someone else in the process.

hmmm I dunno I think the mosin nagants trigger is the easiest but that's just me.

As for as the rest of the SKS rifle of course! I love the fact its so easy to take apart, clean it, assemble, and love. Even taking the firing pin is not that bad. Just a little punch and hammer is about it if you got a tight fitting one.

Ahhh I love SKS'

I completely on board with this. I'm not anywhere near a "smith" and have the common problem of watching springs and various parts wizz by or bounce off of my forehead. I have no illusions of knowing anything about what happens on the inside of a gun. I opened the side of a Smith revolver once and that was enough to convince me to just stay the heck out.

I'll send it off for a trigger job, and anything else that needs to be done other than standard cleaning.

++ on Kivaari. I only had one issue with my trigger when I shot it a few times. One of the Wolff springs was hanging up, so I turned it around. Problem fixed.
