    Yugo SKS $430 - Worth buying

    I came across some Yugo SKS's for $430 on Classic Firearms. They look to be in very good condition. The online reviews are all positive.

    Is that a fair price for a Yugo? I would prefer a Russian or Chinese SKS but may just settle for the Yugo. The grenade launcher is meaningless to me.

    The price is over what i would like to pay for it. But.. i bought one and i am very happy with it. Clean firearm, shoots great and almost no recoil. I am glad i did buy, it is my first SKS and i was very impressed

    So ... Yeah I just bought it one as well. You can probably find cheaper ones but the quality that seems to be the right price.

    Depending on condition, its not a horrible price. Check out SOG and see if they still have any.

    They are a lot of fun, and can be more accurate than you think when you have good ammo and do your part.

    $350-400 max for a 59/66 in these parts. They're not rare, but they are great rifles!

    Sure, until you shoot a M68 practice grenade thru one, then you'll change your tune!

    Did you use a real grenade launching blank, or a regular blank? The reason I ask is I bought some "more powerful than normal" blanks, and the rumor is these work pretty good. I still to do this, but can't seem to find the time right now.

    Regular blanks. It's all I could find...

    The odd thing I noticed when I shot mine is that unless you pointed the rifle nearly straight up, the grenade would travel between 80-100 yards no matter how you aimed it!

    Of course some of that is due to the blank ammo we were using, but my first launches were from about 45 and later ones at 85 and the grenade went almost the same distance!

    For the above picture where I have the rifle nearly vertical, it only went about 50 yards but it had impressive hang time and bounced about 15' into the air after impact!

    Let us know what results you get...

    Cheers! M2

    I suppose its possible, but without knowing the type of powder, you run the risk of damaging your rifle.

    must be some info somewhere for reloading blanks. w/out worrying about a squib you could start real light and work up to pressure signs.
