I have several sks clips that the ammo stick and the rounds are hard to load into the rifle. Is there any thing I can do to make these clips work better?

The aftermarket clips stink. I found if I pinched them in a vice and ‘bowed’ the back a little at the ends, they would fit the clip guide better. Still don’t strip great.

Best to get some surplus ammo with clips for the clips or source some surplus clips (watch for false advertising).

Try to find originals. I found some C83 and Arsenal 31 clips online awhile back and it's night and day compred to the cheap knock offs.

I have also found that the type of SKS makes a difference. I have a Russian and Yugoslavian and have tried a Chinese and the clips I had would not work on the Chinese SKS but would on the Russian and Yugo.

The only ones I have ever found that work came from a case of M67 yugo I bought years ago. They work like a charm.
