No opinions or experience?
Obviously without a launcher or grenade (practice or otherwise)!!!! I’m chasing accuracy dementors in my newly acquired M70AB1, and am trying to eliminate possibilities (like the barrel, in this scenario). Anyone ever done this or have an opinion regarding the idea?
To elaborate, since the grenade sight blocks the gas tube, the rifle won’t cycle the next round into the chamber, so I will be manually feeding individual rounds as I check the barrel accuracy. The question is: will too much pressure develop in the barrel and screw up the gas port and/or grenade sight if I do this?

Sorry don't have a Yugo, can't help you. However, I don't think it would make a difference with a few rounds.
wouldn't changing or cutting off the gas flow automatically throw off your figures and your groups? I get that you're trying to eliminate variables, but under what circumstances will you be firing a live round with the sight ladder up? just trying to understand your reasoning aside from accuracy. If anything, ammo would be the variable that's more easily controlled. use different ammo and handload to shrink the groups.
I don't think it'll hurt it for a few rounds, but sustained full pressure rounds might wiggle something loose. It was never designed for that. I'm fairly sure grenade launching blanks have reduced powder loads in them.

I've only done it (shut off the gas) a few times on a Yugo AK and SKS, I don't see it being a problem if any.
Try elaborating on your "accuracey dementors" a bit. There are plenty of helpful members here.
Also, the cleaning rod was in the rifle when I shot it (not in the barrel, but in it’s proper place)...that’s a possible no-no....

Three foot groups at 100 would be frustrating.
Just some thoughts, Try different brands of ammo. Try to reduce any human error, like shooting from a rest or at least bags. Also, not to be rude, maybe have a friend shoot it for comparison.
Buy better ammo. Wolf isn't very consistent. Granted it should not be 5ft @ 100 but at least get more consistent ammo.
Cleaning rod wouldn't make a difference.
Also is this a kit built on a used barrel?
How's the barrel crown?

Well, to check out the crown I had to unscrew that crappy floppy slant recoil diverter, and that crappy thing is no doubt the biggest source of my woe. Crown looks good. I feel like an idiot for not thinking about that crappy diverter. Thank you Sir!

I can't believe the slant brake is the problem. Don't have my Yugo anymore, but I never saw any problem like yours when I used to shoot it. (And I'm no Davy Crockett.) I'd try it from a rest, as suggested above.

Stop and think about it for a moment. Millions of AKs have slant brakes. Does it seem logical that the factories would develop and install a muzzle device that f’ed up its accuracy?

I’m no expert by any stretch,however 3ft. groups shouts bad barrel. Just my dos centavos.
