    Okay after reading the responses from my earlier thread i have been able to get the trigger assembly and magazine out. Now i am having trouble getting the barrel off of the stock. The part where the cleaning rod goes in, and the bayonet slides through is inhibiting me from just sliding it out. I don't have a camera, which would really help right about now, but from what my description says, can anyone provide assistance? Or do yugos usually have this problem?

    Take the cleaning rod out and extend the bayonet and the reciever should slide right out. Just push up on it from where the trigger group was and it should pivot up and out.

    I had to give mine a few whacks to free it up. At first I thought I must have been missing something, but it was jus in there really tight. I gave the section that is part of that trugger button a few hits and finally got it free.

    Yeah it's amazing how tightly that action can get seated in the stock isn't it. Mine required a little "fine adjustment" with a rubber mallet to get it out the first time (the cosmoline "bedding" didn't make it any easier <grin>).

    Just another question. When i was getting the trigger assembly back in the only way i could apply enough force was to rest the gun laying on the back sight and the back of the reciever. I am slightly concerned that i could possibly cause some damage to the sight, as i needed to use a lot of force to pop the trigger back in the gun. I did however, put the sight under a wadded towel, so am I good?

    You are fine. Many SKS' require alot of force to get the trigger guard to clip back in place. Some require the use of a clamp to get the blasted thing back in place. You aren't going to hurt the sight as long as you have a little padding down on there. Then just slap the trigger group really hard until it clips into place.
