Some folks have experienced stuck firing pins causing a F/A situation upon working the bolt with a loaded gun. Not a good thing!

    MY LORD! This is harder than I thought....but equally as much fun.

    Here are the pics so far...I only got it field stripped because I ran out of carb cleaner [which works miracles btw] before I could finish the rest! I used a gaint can on just the top half!

    Keep at it! Looks like you're doing good.

    I've also heard kerosene will dissolve cosmoline with no problem. Never tried it though.

    Yep - kero' will work but the stink'd put me off! As I said earlier - WD40 works well to dissolve cosmo - only thing I'd use it on a gun for.

    Progress d2 - keep at it. Don't forget too as was said - heat will leach cosmo outa the wood even after you think it is clean!

    Good job! Seems like you have gotten into this 100% and gone thru till done - way to go.

    Do make sure after all the clean-up that trigger group has had light oiling and too - tho obvious - make sure barrel is really free of any lube etc.

    Hope it shoots well for you.

    Well I'm back.....a buck and a doe later. [sorry no pics]

    But that Yugo is AMAZING. Here is some pictures of my target at 50 yrds. I shot better than the rest of my family, who were all using nice power scopes. Maybe this is why I'm the only one who dragged any deer out of the woods!

    I'm hearing from people who own the yugos. They're saying that the rifles are VERY ACCURATE right from the box. Sounds real good to me !

    I kind of went SKS loony. I have two Chinese, one a "paratrooper model", and four Yugoslavians in various grades. They all shoot with fairly good accuracy, certainly good enough for deer out to 150 yards. My Son shot his first Whitetail with my full size Chinese. One shot at about 80 yards and down she went. Very reliable and like all Com-Bloc guns, built like a tank. I like the gas shut-off on the grenade launcher equipped Yugoslavian, it's great for training new shooters and hunter's that you don't feel comfortable with yet with semi-automatic weapons.

    NICE collection!!!!!....I guess I'd better get my butt collecting, huh?

    Yeah I love the Yugo, I've tried out some different ones, and I just feel the most comfortable with the yugo...just the other day I was running around my apartment shooting blanks.....what a wonderful world!
