*Jam Cure for SKS*
By: GreyLocke
25 June 2003

I had posted about my SKS jamming. After replacing my entire gas system and still having the problem it occurred to me while cleaning my rifle after a horrible day of shooting that there was too much powder fouling at the gas-tube/gas-block junction on my barrel.

So I experimented. A bit of fingernail polish on the inside of the gas-tube.

And some more on the contact surface of the gas-block.


And finally some around the outside circumference of the assembled tube.

And voila, no more jams.
