i picked up a Yugo SKS from century and it's having problems cycling. Judging from the condition of the bore, the most likely problem is crud in the gas port. any ideas on how to get in there to clean?

Thanks

You need to disassemble the gas shut off valve. Place the gas shutoff button in the top position. Then depress it and slide it to the rear of the rifle. When it is lined up just right it will pop out with a spring behind it. Exposed will be all of the access you need to the gas port. Mine was FULL of cosmoline.
