Ehhh, I really like my Russian SKSs, I may get a Yugo someday.

The compactness and balance of the Russian makes it a

pleasure to carry and shoot.

I love my Yugo, I had problems but because it was actually issued during and used in the war days of the fall out. I do own the booklet to prove this. The only problem I ever had was a follower spring in the mag go bad. I now have a 30-round mag on it and it does just fine. I think they are great and reliable. Accurate as hell also. It hits center mass on my plinking targets every time. But, I am also about to purchase an Albanian SKS from the gun shop not far from me. I am hoping to talk them down to $400.00 USD.

And how many or which arsenals were the M59/66's made. I've already found a chart that lists year made, barrel type, sight type and a few other things.

Your standard search engine should come up with

quite a bit. Wiki has some good info.

Also research Simonov, the gun's creator.

How many of you have retrofitted your SKS' with tapco stocks and other products they make and does tapco make a quality product

I've yet to find a bad retrofit stock. IME, the composite or

synthetics are sturdy, clean, and light. They soak up abuse

and shed weather and most solvents easily.



One trick I use, is to wrap the old stock carefully,

box it up in the new stock box, and set it aside.

If you decide to sell the gun, it's easy to

replace the old stock, and, generally,

the gun has more value with the original.

When I find a surplus rifle I like and buy and if it has a particularly nice stock on it how do I clean it. I remember when I got my Norinco SKS I used mineral spirits on the metal and just rubbed all the cosmoline off with a rag.
