A friend moved his Magwedge Kwik Rail from one SKS to another, and the Kwik pin that was a perfect fit on the first SKS had to be convinced to go in on the second SKS with a rubber mallet. Definitely tolerances come into play for the Kwik pin. Great product.
I'm sure that's a likely problem given these are old mass produced rifles. I think though that the quick pin is a good idea once you get it moving in and out easily!! I'm looking forward to getting the rail
I do find that with regular use a pin gradually gets easier to work in and out of the receiver hole. I suppose emery cloth could assist in acheiving a custom fit to your particular rifle, but be careful not to create too loose a fit.
Good point definatly don't want a sloppy fit, I'll try your side to side insertion method
Just a little tech tip.Invest in a firearms hammer,the one with a brass striker side and a screw on nylon striker on the opposite side and a set of inexpensive brass punches for working on firearms with less damage. Hope this helps and personally I would like. It that tight as eventually it will loosen slightly.Thanks--Dieseldog!
I love the rail I have the double screw pin stripped easily for me, I would love one of these pins, gotta find lol
Is it wrong to love the clack clack bang, but wanna run from a click tick lol
