M1rifleman, my Yugo really surprised me. It doesn't care for the Wolf ammo, only giving a 6" group at 100yards. The Russian hollow-point in the white box gives me three inch groups. The best is UMC FMJ (good ol' yellow-box) which gives me 1.5" groups. Winchester also gives 1.5"@100yards, but shoots three inches to the right. I shot these groups with the gas valve closed, and using a full-length 6X40 scope, shooting from a metal bipod. Not bad for a used rifle with a dark bore.
Kalifornia pols seem to get their panties in a knot over anything considered "military". The Feds okayed both the G/L and the Bayonets for C&R rifles. I'm surprised the KalPols okayed the bayonets, too.
in the same vein,how come you can have a bayo on a yugo,russki,or romanian everywhere else in u.s. but not on a chinese model? are the chinese guns more likely to go on a stabbing rampage if left unattended?
The reason that grenade launchers are a no-no in Commiefornia is that the state legislators have voted to recognize them as a "destructive device," in an attempt to appear more stringent about firearms matters than most other state legislatures as well as the ATF. There is no reason for them to really do it, other than to appear to the voters that they're doing something about the gun violence in the state.
Interestingly, the state had an SKS Model D buyback program where they offered $100 for every weapon turned in. The website where the information was posted on the net was being maintained by one of the private companies owned by a General in the People's Republic Of China. When a contributing author to the Small Arms Review found out, the company closed the site, and had it reinstalled with an Australian company as the site manager...but still PRC owned....
What do you guys think about that? Especially all the California gun owners?
I've seen Yugos in California with grenade launchers at gun shows all over. If you really need to have one with the grenade launcher just check a gun show in your area. I question why you would want an SKS with grenade launcher many people are haveing problems with the shut off valve leaking on the gas tube for these models. Why mess with those problems when you have no grenades to shoot. Unless of course you do have grenades to shoot then call me I'd like to watch you shoot down range, I bet its bigger than a 3 inch grouping form that blast. hehehehe.
One thing I like about the gas-shutoff valve is being able to shut it off and shoot as a "bolt action" with a full length scope. It increases accuracy. UMC gives me a 1.5" group @ 100 yards, vs. about three inches in semi-auto mode. I know the SKS ain't a target rifle, but it's amazing what it can do with a little tweaking and good ammo! Besides, with big scope, grenade launcher and metal bipod, it just looks tough! Like a poor man's M1a.
If you want a Yugo Issued in So Kaliban go to Retting Guns in Culver City. They got em in crates packed in grease and they are $300. to $398. depending on condition. They just removed the Grenade launcher.
Nice wood one these and I noticed they are HEAVY compared to my ChiCom Paratrooper.
They also had a few screwed on barrel Noricos for about $200.00.
Yeah, I saw those crates and I could'nt believe my eyes! It's too bad they ruined a bunch of cold war relics just so a politician looks like they're doing something about a nonexistent problem...
Did you go to Red Star across the street and inquire about the AR receivers that have the internal box magazine...and Commiefornia legal, halleluiah! I'd like to get one just to tick off some westside politican!
I say have a competition between the responsible gun owning citizens of KA with their semi-auto fixed mag ARs verses the LAPD with all their assault weapons and such. Watch the citizens load faster, hit more targets, and do just about everything better.
No I was there buying a CZ40 pistol and was looking around while they processed my paperwork, back round check.
I'll try Red Star when I pick up my CZ.
Thanks for the tip.
Is there any info on those AR son the web? I heard about it but havent seen any.
How do you reload? Open the action?
Yes, LOBO, you have to break open the rifle to reload, that's what the guy behind the counter said; if you're adventurous, you could feed the rounds in through the ejection port...that's shouldn't be too much of a problem. You can check their website at:
Hey, that CZ40 should be an accurate firearm! Let us know how it does! About the receivers, they're made by some engine shop in Orange County, and Red Star sells them for $289 stripped, $389 assembled with fire control parts.
