Well, I took that fateful trip to Prescott Valley Guns again (they have never done me wrong) today, and as always, I walked out with a new baby.......an unissued Yugo M48A 8MM. He was a little short on normal weight, being about 7.5 pounds but he measured in at 43 inches. Gawd, is he handsome even if it took me two hours to get the casmo off of him. The bluing is flawless...the bore like a mirror......action so tight........stock dingless and unscratched......and even has his own cleaning rod and ALL matching numbers. LOL It's just one GREAT looking gun. I hope he shoots as well as he looks. I'll post a few pics to let y'all share my excitement and joy. If anyone, by looking, can tell me the kind of wood I would appreciate it. On the left hand side of the receiver is a series of Goulash letters followed by 44. Can the 44 be the year it was made? Anyone know? Also, does anyone know if the bolt comes apart like the Swedish Mauser? It looks very, very similar in action, shape, etc. Hey everyone...here's a cigar! Well, here's the first pic.
