Caliber 7.62X39
Manufacturer Part Number SKS-A

SKS M59/66 Grade A rifles from Serbia, Ministry of Internal Affairs. These are in excellent to like new military surplus condition. Expect some dings and dents from being stored in crates. Bluing is excellent. Comes with a fixed blade bayonet and grenade launcher. Accessories are not guaranteed.

Note from the importer:

These seem to be in "original" condition and no re-arsenal, probably more collectible, won't be lots like this around.
Military Category I (VG to Excellent) and Category II weapons (Good + to VG)
There are 20 units per crate. Going through the crates here we find a consistent mixture of both grades. 
Original condition weapons (meaning not re-arsenal)
Many with 'older type' wood with very nice grain all with good to perfect metal. Not as much covered in cosmoline (like the re-arsenal ones).
There are many 'like new' units scattered through the shipment also. Seems that we have enough ammo pouches here for every unit. 
Most, but not everyone has their cleaning kit in the rifle. Some have slings on them.

I'm really happy with this purchase! I received a 1989, last year of manufacture, SKS 59/66 A1 with brand new leather stripper clip pouch. This rifle was never issued. It was lightly cosmolined, and stock appears to be unfinished. It's got a few smudges from handling and a minor dime sized dent that will steam out if I get the urge, or I may just leave it, it's that insignificant. There is scattered and very minor corrosion from long term storage in some spots. The only obvious one, if you're looking hard, is about the size of 1/4 of a dime on the rear top of the housing cover. No big deal. I'm guessing the storage crates support the gun there and adsorbed some moisture. The enclosed cleaning kit had some external corrosion but is completely useable. The stock ferrules have some scattered rust (tough to see) and a few small light ones (less than 1/8") on the wood-side edge of the trigger group. There is a little bit or rust under the gas tube just under the front of the top stock. The screw heads of the butt plate screws have rust but the integrity of the screws is not affected. The butt plate, trap door assemble is rusty inside (as is the spring at the bottom of the cleaning kit cavity) and although the spring to close the door is functional, it's not enough to close the door when you take your finger out. Generally speaking I mention the corrosion because it's there. I hate rust on a gun, but, I'm quite OK with the minimal amounts and where they're located. Don't look, don't tell as far as I'm concerned. The only one my critical eye caught right away was the one under my nose at the rear of the housing/dust cover. The ferrules and trigger group were mostly found by feel when I was cleaning the cosmoline. The cleaning kit and butt plate screws were obvious (when you stick the butt in your face)

I mentioned the stock is unfinished. It looks like a very straight and close grained piece of birch. It should take a nice finish with just a surface cleanup up of very fine steel wool. Oh, almost forgot, virtually no cosmoline inside the stock. Only a couple of spots which I may have caused upon dissassembly, which wiped right off. This is really OK to finish as you see fit as is. I may use a little acetone and whiting to clean out the internal spots. The outside looks devoid of cosmoline, just some finger smudges.

The bluing is superb and the piston looks like it's chromed, although the Yugoslavian SKSs did not have chrome bores. I wiped down the metal parts with some Kroil and the cosmoline came right off (again, very little, just enough to almost do a perfect anti-rust job. The bolt is almost immobile from the cosmoline, so that, and the bore and internal gas tubes, still need to be done. Not a big deal, strip down is quite easy, no tools necessary, except a bullet or screw driver to push the trigger group release. With that clean up done it's ready to shoot (or just plain admire). Even the internal machining, which you wouldn't see is none cleanly.

The shipping package was open at one end and had been kind of re-taped a little by UPS, but still open so I don't know if a sling was included from my container and fell out or not. No big deal. Absolutely no damage to remaining contents. Thanks Top Gun Supply!

Advantages: Last year of manufacture. Serial number is generally thought to be 1988, but the C prefix on the serial number says 1989. 300-1500 manufactured that last year. Gun has never been fired (or the worlds best cleanup) and is almost pristine. It came with the tritium night sights, but, they've decayed beyond their useful life. They do appear as white spots which helps aiming for those of us who are visually challenged these days. All manufacturing and final serial numbers match (including the stock). Top Gun Supply is right, this was never arsenaled. Again, bluing looks great.

Disadvantages: None really. No disappointments with what was advertised and what I got. OK, there's a little cosmoline to get rid of. It's not a big deal and I was told that. It wipes of with Kroil (a penetrating oil/lubricant) with very little effort (and some q-tips). I was surprised at how little effort was involved. You want a brand new surplus military firearm, you deal with a little cosmoline. My stock is unfinished. That's good news and not so good news. If you're going to take care of this (wipe down with oil and frequently clean after shooting) you're going to get oil on the wood. A finished stock wipes clean. Unfinished wood gets dark and ugly. The only other disadvantage for me is I now need to decide how to finish and what color. I've had good luck in the past with walnut, but this gun is probably birch. The wood looks excellent, I just don't know (yet) what color or finish to use that works well on birch and I will like. Personal problem.

The SKS that I received is from 1978. The gun was coated lightly in cosmo. Thankfully the cosmo wasn't heavily slathered on so cleanup was fairly easy. Included with the firearm is a leather ammo pouch. No cleaning kit or sling but not a big deal, really. The rifle has no pitting and no rust, not even surface rust. The bore's excellent, as advertised for a Grade A rifle. All metal parts are great. The wood stock had very little cosmo and, what was there, came off with little effort. After cleanup and oil, the grain in the stock looked and felt a lot better than expected. There are a couple very small handling nicks but they're only visible upon deep inspection. The gun hasn't been fired and I plan to keep it that way. The firearm is Grade A. My interaction with Top Gun has been nothing but positive. I'm glad that I purchased the rifle.
