    Just got my first SKS. It's a Yugo. It shoots great and I have had it apart and put back together several times. Except for getting the stock off. I can field strip it and take the trigger, magazine and gas tube assy off with no problems. Is there anything else I need to take off to get the stock to come loose? I have the SKS manual but it doesn't show what you need to do to get the stock loose. Any help would be appreciated.

    Once the trigger and magazine are out, the stock should just about fall off. That's how it is with a Russian an a Chinese SKS's that I've worked with. They both "rotate" so that the barrel points down and the receiver rises up. If a bayonet is attached and in the retracted position, this becomes difficult.

    Maybe there's dried cosmoline holding it in place.

    My Yugo's stock fits a little snug. You may have to lightly tap it out. The rear will separate first (assuming the trigger group has been removed).

    Cheers

    There is a little tab behind the trigger guard----you need to depress that---then remove the trigger assembly---magazine should just flop out at this point-----then just remove the barreled receiver from the stock.

    The cross bolt in the stock is for strength only-----you don't have to touch it all to disassemble the SKS.

    First, remove the tirgger group and magazine. Next, extend the bayonet. Then I lay the gun on my lap upside down. Lift up on the stock a little and whack upward on the stock with the palm of your hand where your cheek would go if you had the gun shouldered. Barreled action should fall right out.
