    I sold the yugo sks and went to buy this one today. It's an all matching Romanian SKS.
    It was covered in cosmoline and it took a while to clean up. I used the garage, but the house smells like gasoline now. I stripped it down and let the metal parts soak for an hour. Then I scrubbed until the goo was gone.
    Since today is Chuck Norris's birthday I named it the Romanian Norris SKS.

    BTW, I sold the yugo in record time for a lot more than I paid. I like it when it works out like that.

    Next time, instead of gasoline, use a nylon brush, GOOP waterless handcleaner, and rinse with hot water. Then everything will smell like oranges.

    Thanks! It is SO much nicer! I got $250 out of the Yugo and the Romy Norris was $300.

    I think I did good. Now I just need to stock up on ammo. :cool:

    All in all it was $319. I was relieved when I got back to the shop and it was still there! I really don't think they are worth $500!! I have seen them on gunbroker and the like for $350-400

    Ok, I'll take some more pics. Btw, after further research I've found out it's a Yugoslavian m59/66A1 Sks. Im researching the serial number now. No big deal I guess as long as I clean the bore good after shooting. :cool:

    Beautiful gun. But, of course, I have a question. What is cosmoline?

    It's this thick gooey brown grease slime they pack it in for shipping to preserve it,.....or to frustrate the buyers here, I'm not sure which. :D
