I have a friend that has a Chinese SKS that's in great shape, other than the fact that the bayonet hangs open at the tip about 2 inches. He has tried replacing the collar spring, and the collar. He even tried stretching the old spring to make sure it wasn't simply a tension problem. Nothing worked.

I remember a discussion about this problem some time ago, but don't remember the details. His SKS is Chinese. I can tell it has had the bayonet off, possibly when sold, and then "a" bayonet installed. No idea of what nationality the current bayo is.

If I remember correctly, the Russian collars and Chinese collars have some differences? Anyway, I know some collars have straight-sided notches for the bayo latch and other collars have a diaganal cut side on one side of the collar.

Anyone have a recollection of this problem and the remedy? Thanks for your replies.

Regards, firstchoice

That's the first thing that came to mind when I read this post. :D

Seriously, I think to find a real cure for this bayonet will require some images of the locking system. It may be a combination of the wrong parts.

Here are some pics of my lock for my Chinese SKS.. pre import. Although my bayo is a replacement (original was lost). This is a 13 Million S.N., so I believe 1969 ish...
Hope this helps.... Like Viagra!
