I've owned a Different countries SKS, the Chinese ( Most Common years ago), the Russian (Most are Milled steel and feel smooth), a Few Yugo, a Milled steel receiver as well, but many times not as Smooth as the Russian, sold an Albanian for another fellow! The Best???? Hmm, I see most those SKS I've seen to be prety close! I liked the Feel and "Fit" of the Russian SKS, but we sat down one weekend and shot a bunch! We had 3 Chinese Norenco Models, a few Russian, a few Albanian, The Yugo was not common then, and the fact was, though some felt and were perhaps better made and smoother, at 100, 150 and 200 yards, thier was not a 1/2" difference between the lot? I say, if ya like the Yugo, Grab it! If you wait, it might be gone and a lot of what was once coom, is not a get it while ya can deal? The Yugo sometimes are still covered in Cosmiline and a pian to clean off! Make sure no matter what SKS you get, Buy a good cleaning kiyt and break it down and make sure it's clean and all the grease or cosmiline is out of critical area's, Like th Gas Tube and off the gas piston? No greater way to turn a semi-auto into a heavy single shot then to let all that gunk harden up and gunk up your gas operation! If you have other questions, ASK, I know many will try to help you all we can?
