Yugoslavian SKS M59/66

by A-Poc

The Yugoslavian M59/66 SKS is based on the original Russian SKS 45 and the quality is pretty close to the same.  It fires a 7.62x39mm round and has a 10 round fixed magazine capacity.  It usually comes with a 22mm NATO specific grenade launcher, flip-up grenade sight, standard SKS front and rear sights with flip-up night sights, and a folding 11.5″ bayonet.

These are nice rifles to have and still in abundance.  I would say they are pretty cheap but folks, in the last 4 weeks I have watched the price of this rifle go up $300 (from $189 to $489) at my local gun store and he can’t keep them in stock.  If you can get it and want one, get it now!

Love this rifle — easily my favorite SKS, and probably my favorite overall battle rifle of the era.

We recently did a review on this Yugo SKS, and I must say, I’ve got the itch to buy a couple more before they go up even more. It seems like the prices never come down once they come up 🙁
