Great thread, Junho. Sparing me a lot of the "Uh-oh" experience with the first surplus rifle

Be sure to let us know when (if) you get it clean.

They are similar in that they both use a 98 action although the yugo rifles have an intermediate length action. As to which is better.. That is up to the individuals taste. I like any and all Mauser action rifles.

Juno:

Be careful; these milsurp rifles can be as addictive as AR's.

I started just buying an 8 mm Mauser WW2 K98k Mauser on a whim, and then bought a .303 British Enfield No4 Mk1, that led to a Mosin Nagant 91/30, a 1903-A3 Remington, and now a 1941 M1 Garand. What is worse is that now there are a bunch more milsurp riifles on my "want/have to have" list.
