    I had to drive to W. Sacramento to pick it up from UPS as there was a snafu with the address. I didn't open the box until I got home and I have to tell you, I was blown away. The rifle is in beautiful shape. Of course, I have a bunch of cosmoline to clean up, but that's just part of the deal.

    The wood almost looks like oak to me, or at least a similar grain configuration. There are minimal handling marks and one large mark on the left of the stock by the rear sling swivel. The bolt, receiver and stock are numbers matching. The magazine plate is not. The Yugo crest on the receiver is there, but somewhat faint. The bluing is excellent with just some wear around the muzzle. It's hard to see what the barrel looks like as it's full of grease, but from what I can see, the rifling looks pretty strong.

    Anyway, the weather is supposed to warm up, so it will be disassembled and get to catch some rays over the next few days.

    Here's some pics:

    feeling when you come across one.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks.

    On a military surplus forum I found out that the stock is elm and once I get it cleaned up the barrel may even be new.

    Elm you say? Man, you don't see anything made of elm anymore after the big die-off a few years back. I guess that's why the grain pattern didn't look familiar to me on that stock. I'm looking forward to your range report when you get the chance to take it out and shoot it. :cool:

    That's a good looking rifle. Are you planning on refinishing the stock you say?

    Not in the least. I'm just going to sweat the cosmoline out of it and give it a wipe down. This rifle deserves to remain as is.

    You need to take macro pics of the stamp on the left of the receiver, top of receiver, and bolt. An Elm stock is rare enough. Maybe you hit the jack pot.
