    Just bought a Chinese SKS Rifle. LOTS of cosmolene. I can't remove the receiver cover. I had a Yugo SKS that came apart easily.

    Is there a trick to taking this thing off?

    Does the pin come loose and move outward properly?
    If so I would guess you need to tap it rearward with a block of wood. There isn't anything inside that can jam it up.

    Pull the pin outward?

    Crap. Of course. Now I remember. Pull the pin outward....and the cover came right off.

    I looked at several takedown videos on Youtube and none of them said anything about pulling outward on the pin. My fault though. Thanks
