my sks problem

every time i fire my SKS, the bolt dosent eject the round, so i must pull back on the receiver to eject the spent round. Why does it do this, is it because of a faulty spring?

If you have a Yugo SKS with a grenade launcher check the gas shut off valve. For semiautomatic fire it should be rotated to the right, locking the grenade sight down. When I got mine I had that problem.
Gun Control-gun con┬Ětrol n. definition 1. The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker received that fatal bullet wound. 2. The ability to hit what you are aiming at.
