    YUGO!

    I shoot the *hit out of mine all the time.......it's a great weapon, if not a little on the heavy side. I love to toss a few clays on the berm at the range and go to town with the YUGO. I love it. I paid $106 with the tax a year or so ago.

    Here's mine..........

    good looking gun. i have found the fun part is the time and hard work it takes to get the cosmoline out.

    LMarshall73; that's a super good looking Yugo! Does it shoot as well as it looks?

    My son has a well used Yugo SKS with all the grenade launcher baggage on it. Weighs as much and is as long as my M1. Told him I'd want all that stuff off of there. It couldn't help accuracy and SKS's aren't generally known for great accuracy to begin with. I've got a Russian SKS that many seem to think are first rate. Shoots 4-inch groups at best at 100 yards from the bench. Took his Yugo out for the first time and it whipped my SKS like a redheaded step-child. Easy two-inch groups from his using the same ammo my rifle eeks out its 4-inch groups. Yugo has far better trigger and gives the impression of having better fit and finish. I was much impressed by the Yugo. I felt kinda cheated by having to use the Russian.

    I imagine yours will be just as good.

    I have yugo UF, poly forend, a fully furnished yugo, w/stock, and just picked up a bargain sks ..all same caliber 7.62x39, all dead on reliable, and accurate to 100 yds; don't have any reason to shoot past the 100!

    Thanks, but all I did was let the stock sit in a black plastic bag full of kitty litter for a couple of days, then give it a mineral spirits bath. I then let it dry for a day, hit it with a green scotchbrite pad, then some 0000 steel wool. I added several coats of clear gloss Minwax Helmsman spar urethane. I decided to leave all of the nicks, dents, and dings, and the bluing will stay in it's current condition. It even has some staining on the tip of the bayonet that doesn't want to come off. I would rather not speculate on what the stain may or may not be from.
