I just got an SKS. I took it apart and can't get the trigger group back in. Any suggestions? I am going to be sending the trigger for a job next week , but wanted to clean this first and see what else I need .

Make sure your safety is "ON", and that the pins near the front of the group lock underneath the magazine and hold it in place. Using the palm of your hands press down on both the trigger group and the receiver cover within the stock, and you should hear a distinctive click when it locks into place.

As long as you're sure the safety is on and it's lined up properly don't be afraid to give it a good whack

Ozzman's description of the re-install is correct. I recently cleaned my M59/66 that was still in cosmo. I, too, had trouble with the trigger group. Essentially I had to lean my weight into it for the trigger group to snap back in.

Best of luck!

For those of us with worn out hands a c-clamp can be used. I modified one so that it wouldn't leave a mark on the stock. Clamp engages trigger group just behind trigger guard and on receiver (with parts removed of course.)

How do you re-cock it if it de-cocks while unassembled?
