I bought a Yugo M59/66 SKS today and I noticed when I got home that the caliber marking clearly reads 7.62x59. Can this be a misprint? Now I am afraid of shooting any 7.62x39 out of it. I can assure everyone it is clearly a 5. Please help.
From what I have been reading on the history of the SKS, it has never been chambered in 7.62x59, you have a missprint. The caliber is and always has been 7.62x39 for sks's.I'll wager you have a Century import, they're not exactly klnown for their high quality electro pencilling skills.
