    You did not have a cook off in your SKS. Film narration and visibility as to what you are trying to do is not very clear. The SKS can have slam fires due to several different possible issues. A gun has to get real hot for a cook off to happen.
    As long you were having fun all seems well.

    Might consider adding a firing pin return spring. I believe the Yugo bolt is already machined for it, should drop in.
    Not sure if anyone makes a titanium pin for the SKS, but that might be an option as well. Less chance of a slamfire due to less pin mass.

    Would not have altered the firing pin.

    The yugo firing pin got bent from hitting the primers of wolf ammo. On an SKS you want hard primers to prevent slam fire. I really wonder about wolf ammo being a culprit here.

    Murray's Gunsmithing in Bowie Texas can cure SKS issues such as 'curing' (-permanently-) Popped primer issues.
    They sell the firing pin spring along with performing other professional services.

    **The first Russian SKS rifle series actually Had firing pin springs, then decided to no longer use these springs.
