    The Chinese SKS are brand new most of the time.Not refurbished.I used the Tapco stock on mine and changed the top gas tube to synthetic as well.Have no problems.

    I have a Russian SKS with all that tapco crap on it,
    It works flawlessly but now I wish I hadn't done anything to it, it looked great without any 'upgrades'.

    The guy posts something and has a comment and question. Why did he change his SKS? Because he wanted to. Why do you own what you own? Because you want to? Stfu

    1) Ensure it is in this position when locked, If not it wont hold.


    2) As others mentioned check the clearance between handguard and stock, if it a tight fit, shave some handguard off (sandpaper or file.)

    3) Try closing the lever without gas tube in place, if it still hard to push down, then the plunger and spring are not properly placed.

    4) Check if by forcing the lever you bent it, if it is bent then there will be less force holding it in the locked position indent.

    I figure it is a combination of 1&2 but it's always a good idea to check everything in the area of the problem regardless of unlikely-ness, especially if all it costs is a couple mins of your time.

    Yeah!! we need to look arround us to see that everything we are buying is chinese. Some of the European and US manaufacturers are also producing in China and stamping their name on it.

    Buying Chinese may not be the best for our manufacturing sector but our trade sector and service jobs is doing well.

    BUY CHINESE it is better for your pocket and you have a lot more money for rounds to have fun.
