Yugoslavian SKS Rifle - 7.62x39mm - Grade 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.

But if you also want to shoot it, you're going to have to get the cosmoline out of the bolt that holds the firing pin or you risk slam fires. And getting to the firing pin takes a punch and a hammer to get the firing pin retaining pin out so you can access the firing pin channel. That's probably going to be the hardest part of cleaning the rifle but once you've finished you're left with an awesome looking yugo sks.

I am very happy with the condition of the gun, however, I was a bit upset that the only thing that I received was the gun. It has no cleaning kit in it, no sling, or even the ammo pouch that they were all suppose to have. This is the only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5.

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!
