Default New Yugo SKS

Just Bought n shot my first yugo sks....but by golly it took some cleaning...over 4hrs.........the carbine came with the strap, oil can / pouch, ammo pouches, pull thru and a complimentary 500 gallons of cosmoline nicely ooozed into every crevice......i had ammo, bought 20 stripper clips....
Took it out sunday for 8 ten round clips......flawless and fun....heavy but a blast to shoot...did you know that the bayonet when folded down gets HOT!...My advice: Don't throw a well fired Yugo over your shoulder on it's strap 30 secs after you shot the hell oyugo-sks.jpg

Sweet! Got to love a SKS. Nice looking rifle and glad you are enjoying. I personally think everyone should own at least one SKS, as well as a Mosin. Thanks for sharing your photos.

My Norinco SKS has been nothing but great for the 19 years I've owned it. It's been nearly trouble free in that time and what problems I've had were either ammo related or related to a parts "upgrade" I did. As soon as I took the firing pin out that I upgraded to the problems stopped and haven't come back in years. It actually worked great until I combined it with a trigger job and the two didn't work together very well. BTW I highly recommend a trigger job. I cut my group size in half by having that done. Kivaari is the guy to do it IMO. Well worth the price of admission.

i love my sks too, just a good old fun gun to go shoot, and cheap too.

mine has feeding problems but that's due to me switching to detachable mags.

Default New Yugo, new question

Okay so i've got a question:
Directly in front of the fore sight housing, on the barrel there is a double ring with a wire ring in between...if you look at the pic above of the bayonet the rings sit directly above the knurl of the bayonet lock/slide. What's it for??

Looks like a bushing to keep the back end of the grenade tube centered on the barrel. Shooting a cockeyed grenade would probably not have the desired effect unless you were playing high stakes Russian roulette.
