Episode 21: The SKS Firing Pin

A new SKS rifle is a wonderful thing, but you have a lot of work to do before you try to fire it.  First you have to get all the cosmoline off it (and out of it), then be sure your firing pin is free.  The SKS has a floating firing pin, and if it gets gunked up and stuck in the forward position you could get slam firing.  Bad juju.
