SKS Handguard Installation Instructions

Step #1

To remove the trigger assembly, first put the safety in the “on” position. Insert a pin punch or Philips head screwdriver into the spring latch catch at the rear of the trigger guard and press it inward firmly until the spring latch releases.

Step #2

The trigger assembly will now spring out, and can be removed from the stock by pulling, or prying outward on the rear of the receiver.

Step #3

The barrel action can now be removed by pulling outward and towards the rear.

Step #4

Remove the existing Gas Tube Assembly from your SKS. Use a screwdriver or punch from you SKS cleaning kit to raise the lever on the right side of the rear sight base. The dimple on the lever should stop at the end of the curved track on the right side of the rear sight base.

Note: Further movement will cause the operating rod and spring to shoot out of the action.

Step #5

With the lever in the position, you can now lift the gas tube assembly up and out of the gun. Pull upward at the rear of the gas tube assembly. This may require some careful prying with a screwdriver (Do not bend the gas tube). Next, remove the gas piston from the assembly by tipping it upside down. It will simply slide out.

Step #6

There is a small rivet running crosswise through the rear handguard cover in the gas tube assembly. The rivet may be difficult to see. The rivet has two ends, the head, and the shaft. Be sure to punch out from the shaft end. Remove this rivet by using a 1/16” punch or the “punch” provided in your cleaning kit. Eye protection is necessary.

Step #7

Once the rivet is removed, the rear sheet metal cover will slide off, as will the wooden handguard. If the rivet is damaged, a similar sized finished nail can be cut to length to serve as a replacement. Now, install the new ATI SKS handguard over the SKS gas tube assembly.

Step #8

Slide the SKS handguard completely over the gas tube assembly. Re-insert the front handguard cover, making sure the rivet hole is correctly aligned with gas piston. You will be able to visually see the holes align. Re-insert the rivet through head end and tap the rivet back into place. This will secure the handguard over the gas piston.

Step #9

Make sure the handguard is secure to the gas tube assembly and continue to re-install the gas tube and handguard assembly back onto the barrel of the SKS.

Step #10

Once you have fit the handguard and gas tube assembly into place, lock the assembly into place by pushing the lever to the right of the rear sight base down and into the locked position.

Step #11

Re-install the receiver and barrel assembly back onto your SKS stock by inserting the assembly from the front and lowering into place towards the rear.

Step #12

Make sure the stock is as far forward on the action as it will go and insert the magazine. The bolt must be locked back for the magazine to be installed. Make certain that the magazine front locator is in its mating slot on the bottom of the rear sight base.

Step #13

To install the trigger group, place the barreled action/stock assembly inverted on a padded surface. Be sure the trigger group hammer is cocked, and that the safety is in the “on” position. Insert the front of the trigger group into the stock, making certain that the trigger group cross pin goes into the locator lugs on the receiver bottom. Push the rear of the trigger group down until it stops, and locks into place.
