    Raising funds for another toy and some things gotta go.

    This is an all-matching M-Series (1972?) Yugo SKS 59/66 with the drilled grenade launcher in G-VG condition.

    Pertinent info:

    • - Bluing is somewhat worn, but rust free.  Some of the pics look like it's down to bare metal but that's mostly glare, though metal does show through on the corners.
      - The handguard is a slightly different color, but is original to the gun.  It had a crack in it that I repaired with Gorilla Glue as part of the re-finish - permanent and virtually invisible.
      - Original finish was cosmoline and Olga's toenails - got it all off and put on about 12 coats of hand-rubbed BLO.
      - When I used to shoot this more I'd regularly ping the 12" gong at 200 yds. I'm not a great shot, and the gun can probably do better, but that's what I'll stick to  certainly within minute-of-deer/feral pig.
      - When I first got it I had occasional misfires with some lacquer coated ammo (not with polymer, zinc or brass).  The paper-clip fix from surplusrifleforum.com took care of that and is still in place, about 300 rounds later.
      - I sent the bolt to Ben Murray for his spring-loaded firing pin and bolt fluff-n-buff.  That's the only non-original part on the gun and will not change its C&R status or invoke 922(r) limitations,per the BATFE.  The original firing pin and a spare spring are included in the sale.  If you've ever experienced a slam-fire you know why you want this.
      - There are scratches on the metal where you would expect them (piston-tube latch and receiver-cover latch) and a couple where you wouldn't (on the barrel by the gas block)
      - There are dings in the stock, per the pictures, and there are some that aren't documented.
      - If I can find them, I'll include the ammo pouch, cleaning kit and oiler.


    Asking $265 FTF in SW Ohio.  I have a C&R and will ship to FFL03 or FFL01 (shipping is extra, should be at or about $20).  Payment by Postal MO, or, of course, cash if FTF.

    Preference is cash sale, but these are the trades I would consider (with cash on my, or your, end, depending) in order of preference:

    AK variant in 7.62x39 or 5.45x39 (underfolders are nice)
    Ruger SP101 or equivalent carry gun (3" barrel or less).  357 Mag preferred.
    Chinese or Sino-Soviet SKS (must be all original, or come complete with matching original parts - stock, magazine, bayonet etc).  I might consider a bubba job, but with extra cash or other goodies in trade on your end.
    May consider a shotgun - 12 or 20 GA Remington pump or semi-auto (needs to be reliable and functional, not necessarily pretty).
    Mosin-Nagants - Finn M28 or M39, Soviet M91, other unusual variants, Sesty, Westinghouse of Remington arsenal etc.  I have plenty of Izzy/Tula 91/30's and M44's so will pass on those.
    Maybe a Glock 17
    E. German or Russian C&R (no IJ-70 or Bulgy - got them already) Makarov in 9x18.
    Might consider a Kel-Tec P32

    Open to any other ideas/offers as well

    I got some coming from Aim Surplus. I might pick up a box of UMC or Wolf this weekend also! I will post range results in the Other Guns section then.

    Have a nice holiday

    And to you as well!

    I've thought about picking up a case of that yugo x39 from AIM, or maybe the Golden Tiger, though I'm more likely to be able to reload the yugo.
