    Picked up a beautiful SSG-69 in trade. When I looked at it today, the magazine will not release and the rifle’s safety is very difficult to engage. It will also fire when the rifle is on safe. Any ideas?

    Good luck on your ssg69. My concern is the action or trigger may have been modified. I would take the trigger group apart and clean it up with clp. But that is if you had experience in working on firearm before. If not, take it to a good (and qualify) gun smith to check it out.

    Just did yesterday & everything is fine. The rifle was dry as a bone, he lubed it up and the safety will fully engage now. He polished the magazine & it drops out with minimal effort. Thank God there still some gunsmiths in my rural part of OR.
