Installing a larger magazine release on the SKS

I received a Tapco magazine release for the SKS.  This is how I installed it.

Remove the trigger mechanism and identify the part you want to replace.

See that little pin?  That needs to be moved to the side but DO NOT remove it from the trigger mechanism.

remove the small magazine release with the spring attached.

install the spring onto the new magazine release

put the two pieces next to eachother to assure that they are similiar (although one is larger than the other).

there are small tracks which the magazine release will slide onto.

make sure the spring is correctly aligned with the round niche

spring is in correct alignment

slide the pin back into position

This is the size difference between the two magazine releases


Too easy.
