    Finally got a chance to remove the trigger group to send off to get a trigger job on it. No wonder the magazine wouldnt come out damn thing was rusted to the piece that goes in the gun. I tell ya this feller stored that sks under water. I got it out by putting a screw driver behind it and gently working it out. Ill just have the whole durn thing parkerized. That will take care of that.

    Yeah but you still have to come up with $355 to get it for 75.

    The price I paid for it is about accurate in this area for this condition.

    200 is good for an SKS anywhere as long as it shoots decent

    Got it tore down and cleaned for the most part. The previous owner hadn't even shot it. The firing pin was completely bound up in the fire position with cosmoline that if you tried to rack a bullet I bet it would fire. The guy probably had no idea what he was doing and never cared enough to find out. At least it will have a good home now. Firing pin free now and cleaned up the barrel to check it. Looks like this one is a keeper with all matching numbers!

    I do what I can but I was informed that this gun will be the last purchase (that the fiancé knows about...) for a while.

    Just pulled my SPARC Vortex off mine for the new AK. Pics when the TRUGLO reflex on order arrives! My Yugo is a good shooter, bought right by today' standards and cleaned up very well. If I ever sell my (what is that goo called?? Getting late) cleaning hours get folded into the price. It was a great experience bringing a piece of military history back to life and the plus is it's a really good shooter in an affordable mid-sized caliber. Fun and good (not great) for multiple purposes.

    COSMOLINE - that's the military goo!! Solvents, heat (yep, had parts in the oven) and lots of scrubbing, picking and finding new bits and blobs. An experience that will stay with me for a long time. Cheaper than an AK and I can out shoot most. Now, if I could only find one of the 20 round Chinese fixed mags! Don't hesitate to call if you have one that you will part with!!! Cash on the barrell right now!!

    Okay i figured i better post up a picture of the target the sks shot at. I only got 40 rounds down range(we were having to much fun with the little 22) but it shoots very nicely. this would have been the first target, 10 rounds at about 35 yards on iron stghts. it may have been less distance, i need a range finder...

    Moved the SPARC red dot to the AR and now have the same TRU GLO on this as the 930 - like it a lot. In current trim (unloaded) it's at 9lb. 9 oz. and all reversible. If done carefully the sight on the receiver cover can work and stay on zero IF the fit is tight. If you file too aggressively you will blow it. The scope mount is a see-through unit for perfect co witnessing - set me back about $30 on Amazon. Shot it late last week after changing the sights - a good shooter at a great price!!

    I may take the grenade launcher off BUT it does act as a flash suppressor to a degree and the replacement suppressors I've seen look like crap and are best if welded on - not something I want to do. Oh and time to check the condition of the original sling OR invest in a new one. Any suggestions for something that uses the existing connections? they are mid bottom butt stock and left side half way to the grenade launcher up the barrel - the retaining pin for the bayonet looks like an alternative possible spot as well - input appreciated.

    Very cool.

    Is there any wobble in the mount?
