Default Sks yugo

This is the one of the first rifles that I bought. I like the old guns and the ammo is pretty easy to find. And it is fun to shoot.

Very nice SKS. Got my first one in '67, was not that nice. They are fun shooters.

I've fired a friend's Yugo, and found the grenade launcher acts

somewhat as a counterweight against recoil. Faster to get back on target.

My Russian is more balanced without it, but there's more recoil.

That's a nice stock.

Did the recoil pad come with it?

Hard to go wrong with a SKS. Still kind of cheap, ammo is pretty cheap. Really low recoil for a center fire rifle, and pretty accurate. Other than that they suck

For an old rifle you can hit a paper plate from a 100yd pretty easy.This is one of my coolest guns..

Unfortunately here in Kalifornia we can't have the Yugo's because they have a grenade launcher..... I'm pretty sure it has never been used in a violent crime..... dang idiotic Kalifornian politicians.
