Question Helping avoid stovebolt/misfeeds.

The Norinco SKS is kept very clean. Fairly often nowadays a fresh round is held by the bolt against the chamber, and is pointed at a steep, upward angle.

Wouldn't a few minutes of firm scrubbing with a brush dipped in nasty Hoppe's #9 do the same thing, and reduce stovebolt frequency?

Stove piping, look at the lips of the mag.

A stove pipe is typically a ejection problem and not a feed problem. Weak ammo, faulty extractor, or something that is causing it to short stroke.
I'm assuming it's a spent round that is stove piping.

Have you checked the gas port? Is it clean?

Pardon my overdue response as I appreciate your info. I read 'Surplusrifle', 'SKSboard', 'THR' etc quite often and forget about the non-Mini forums here.
It is always a fresh round which stovepipes.

Now and then I put some Hoppes on a thin, flexible pipe cleaner 'wick' and rub the gas port, but very little soot is seen on it.

Other than about a month when nine or ten rds. were kept in this original magazine, there has been no sustained tension on the magazine spring.
The previous owner seldom used it-if any: he inherited it from his late father and the rifle was almost mint condition when he sold it in '08.

My norinco does the same thing, but only on the last round. I completely blame the magazine feed lips for this. You can attempt to examine and re-shape them yourself but it'll take a considerable amount of tweaking to get it right.
