My Yugos are a bit more rugged than my former Chinese, but it was a very good rifle.

Pardon me for mentioning "popped primers". This just happened in both Yugo M59s (not 66), both all-matching and in excellent condition.

My new Tula ammo could be an issue, but if you want to learn something about primer issues, read detailed comments by Ben Murray at SKSboards.

He owns Murray's Gunsmithing in TX, and for a modest charge he can do precision reaming of the bore's 'free space'. Rifles with such work never again have popped primers.
One of Ben's theories is that various SKS must have been manufactured with different amounts of free space in the chambers.

I have a Norinco with a fixed 20 rounder that is easily installed and removed. If I need to bring it back to original, it takes about 15 seconds. This combo has been 100 percent with e every type of ammo.
The Norincos havbe chrome plated chamber and bore. since most MilSurp ammo is corrossive, that's been a blessing.

I'd keep it stock except for the 20 round magazine. I can shove two strippers in from the top almost as fast as changing a box type mag.

Agree on the Norinco- but I like my 30 rd mags

I got a Yugo 10 years ago and recently a nice rearsenaled 1954 Tula. Both are stock. I like the Russian better but will hang on to both.

I've had two of the Chinese carbines with the 16 inch barrel. Neither were bad rifles but the last one is getting sold tomorrow. I haven't found the round to be a ".308 lite" and the little rifle just doesn't suit me. Read thru this to see if there was anything that would change my mind but it's going.

My SKS Norinco. I bought, I mean traded labor for this back in 1994 or 95. One days work for the job. It shoots great with the iron sights. It has been sitting so long that yesterday when I took it to the gun range I could not make a left or right adjustment due to the screw being froze in place. So when I got home yesterday I put a few drops of gun oil on it, and will see if I can get it to move today so that I may be able to adjust it. Mine has the stock 10 round fixed magazine in it.
