Default Sks problem

I hope I put this in the right section. Ive got an Sks thats giving me a few problems. When I release the bolt forward, the hammer drops right behind it instead of staying in the cocked position. If I charge it and release it a little slower it does stay cocked. Is this a disconnector problem? Because the sear and all seem fine, I havent done anything to it. No trigger job or anything. I did replace the hammer spring with a murrays 31lb and it kept acting up so I put the original back on. Anyways, any ideas? Its very unsafe in its current condition

If youíre replacing parts make sure you use parts from the same country. There is some variation between Yugos, Norincos, Russians etc. Also, there is a guy in Texas, Tom Prince, who has a business that works on SKS triggers to make them safe and more two stage. His business uses a Finnish name: Kivaari. You might email him to see what he suggests. I sent my Yugo SKS trigger to Tom and he made it quite a bit better. It now has a decent military two stage trigger.

The other mod I made to my SKS was adding a firing pin spring so it wouldnít slam fire when the bolt is released and goes into battery.
