ANY and I mean ANY help is appreciated
P.s if you need pictures ask
Slow down you may be ok. I just went through the same thing. First off you are going to need to file the gas tube a little bit to get it in. Notice on your original gas tube there is a slight angle on the gas tube where it meets the reciever and locks down into place. There are videos out there on this. I did it the other day. Secondly there may seem like there is an obstruction and your piston does not fit all the way down into your gas tube, just use a little force and it will pop right through and then fit as it should. It is just a little tight at first. The first thing I would do though is make sure you do not have the wrong gas tube. There is one for the Yugo that is different from the others. If you do not have a Yugo the Yugo gas tube will not fit and vise versa.
Pissed me off at first too, but it shoots well and does what it is supposed to do. I do wish I hadnt have gone through all that and left the original stock on, to me it just isnt worth the hassle. I dont know why they couldnt just make it right to begin with so you don't have to file it.
One more thing, I havent been too impressed with the Tapco magazine either. I suggest finding a chinese or some other steel one if you want to go high capacity. Mine Jams from time to time and sometimes wont fully eject the shells.
Here is a video of what I am talking about. I dont know why the hell he filed the plastic part, but watch passed that.
