that is the importers stamp, but i am not familiar with who that might be, possibly Numrich's.

I second that, Papa G. Importers mark different parts of the firearms. Why? No one is really sure.
As far as the non-porting, it must be an earlier SKS because they didn't use the grenade launcher as a muzzle brake until 1961. I'd be interested to see if there is a difference between the two models as far as recoil is concerned...

Well I said the heck with it and bought the Yugo with the launcher in excellent condition. Just came from the SOG site and pushed the submit button. Also bought a CZ52 in very good condition handpicked. Waiting for that knock knock on the door already! :)

My Yugo M48 has the same importers mark but the only part that was stamped deep enough to see was "Hurley NY" I dont know who that is either.

well
after looking a little deeper into the box guess what
there was a card from the importer with a 90 day warranty
got to send it in
also as for the recoil it is lighter than the other yugo i have
but it is a little loud the rifle it self looks and shoots great
the cut off valve works on this one unlike my first yugo
if i new i would get another one just as good as this one
i would order it now

thanks again
