Ben – I finally got to the range with the 31LB hammer spring. I fired 120 rounds of:
Golden Tiger (20)
Brown bear (20)
Wolf Black Box (20)
I had no FTFs and the trigger pull was definitely better then with the stock spring. The better trigger pull made my groups a lot better. As before, the Wolf ammo had the hardest primers. I gave away the last of my Wold ammo and will no longer use it. Brown Bear is the most accurate and has the softest primers. Gold Tiger is a close second. This is the only ammo I will buy in the future. I will be buying another 31LB spring for my other SKS soon. It worked very well. Thanks
Hello sir, first I would like to say thank you for your service I am so happy. Well I have fired all my old old ammo no problem as well as some newer tule and some brown bear fired all of it perfect. The old ammo was pretty ugly looking with some corosion on primer but thought I might as well try it was Wolf ammo ate it up! feels good shoots great! Thank you.
I just wanted to commend you for your excellent product (Yugo gas valve) I was very skeptical as to wether a couple thousandths on OD and a few thousandths on OAL would make enough difference to cycle my yugo which was about 75% under cycled as far as my eyes could tell but it worked perfectly it now cycles 100% of the time. My biggest compliments are to the fact that you must have done some good research and development prior to offering this product which would require testing on several injured Yugos. Thanks again.
I JUST got back in the door from my first range trip using the x39 AR 15 MGI bolt which you relieved the sharp firing pin hole edges. I am pleased as punch to say that around 200 rounds were fired, all brass collected… and not ONE of them have a hole! I was waiting on a Caldwell Brass Catcher so I could be sure of reviewing all the spent brass from the Wolf ammo. This is the same batch of ammo that gave problems previously. Sometime in the next few days I will take some photos of the brass. The primer has a bit of a “cratered” look to it such as one would expect to see on over-pressure rounds, but I am sure this is just a side-effect of the recessing job you did on the bolt face, and not an indicator of over-pressure on this standard factory ammo. I can certainly live with that! Thanks very much for the EXCELLENT INSIGHT into the issue and the super job you did and so affordably as well. Never would have figured this out without your posting on the internet. Thanks again and MERRY CHRISTMAS! Mr. Murray – Hello and Merry Christmas! This past weekend I drove to another city to visit a friend and go to the range. Over two days, we put 400+ rounds through my x39 AR with the modified firing pin hole edge you did for me. The rifle functioned perfectly all weekend, not a single malfunction. Just wanted to give you the follow through… your fix worked! Take care and happy holidays to you and yours.
Hi and thank you so much. I purchased directly from you by picking from the shopping cart. Please add me to your testimonials with the following quote “Fast, professional and courteous service. Trigger assembly really improved the functioning of my sks.
I did test it and found that it did not fire the heavy Burdan primers so I put the 31# spring in and all went off as should be. If and when I run out of the Burdan primer rounds I will go back to the 27.5# spring for the Boxer primed rounds. Hope this helped.
I want to share how pleased I am with your SKS firing pin upgrade. I just purchased my first SKS last week and, having read about the potential for “slam” fire, I immediately ordered your kit. It was obvious from the first look that this is a well crafted, quality replacement. It took me a mere 15 minutes to remove the original tapered firing pin, install your upgrade, and reassemble. I took it to the range today and it devoured ammo flawlessly. To me, the piece of mind is well worth the price — it’s cheap insurance. Thanks again for the great product.

My new SS firing pin went in about five minutes start to finish. I am very pleased with the quality, fast shipping and a product that really works. Thank you
Hi Ben, I just wanted to thank you for the great service upgrading my bolt! the quality of work is beyond expectation. I have not yet had the chance to shoot the rifle, but looking at the bolt I know it will work perfectly. 30 years fixing, modifying car repairs, I see what you have done. I believe its best to have the master do the repair and see how he did it, I am glad to have had you do this mod. I could do it now, but I see how I could have damaged something in the bolt. Thank You Very Much for this service!
It took exactly 7 minutes start to finish to replace the pin. I had my 14 Year old son do it. The punch we used was a 1/8th. Very easy to install. The made in USA on top to ensure proper placement was genius. I feel much more secure. Great product..
The SKS spring loaded firing pin that you sent worked flawlessly, I had it in my rifle and was firing rounds ten mins. After opening the package, I received my order three day’s after placing it, and I am more than satisfied with the performance of your product…. Thanks Mr. Murray for your excellent workmanship and fast delivery. I am looking forward to ordering a trigger group from you very soon.

Add me to the list of overwhelmingly satisfied customers! I ordered the SKS SS firing pin/spring on Christmas day, went out of town until today, found it in the mailbox and it now resides where it belongs. I’ll be ordering again. Thanks Murray’s!!!
