I just got mine in, Despite hearing all the horror stories. It is mint. I will post some pics later. I am wondering if this is 1 in a million, or if they are working with a different batch now.

It looks like these kits have fair to decent bores...maybe a better term is "useable."

I had not personally seen some of the older "sewer pipe" bores, but I wonder how many of those just needed a good, thorough cleaning and were actually useable. (Not saying people were exxagerating, just a thought that the intial appearance must have been quite a shock)

My guess is after being 'spoiled' with chrome lined bareled kits with excellent bores that those folks who got the first "dark bore" Yugo kits were horrified at the comparative condition.

AS for a "bulged" abrrel, that is one I would personally NOT fire. Give CFS a call and tell them taht. WOrn rifling is one thing, IMHO a bulged barrel is way beyond "worn" and should be replaced.

I better order one of these, someday. That kit is awesome.

I got one this week and looked just as good on the outside but the bore was trash. Flunked the bullet test, major corrosion and little rifleing left. I think its just luck of the draw. I sent mine back yesterday.

Is the bulge visible from the outside?

I remember reading a similar post and it was just an illusion created by the gas port

I is not visible from the outside but you can feel it and see it on the inside
It is right in between the front sight and gas block you can see a defanat ring like there was a bullet stuck there and one hit it.

can you modify flats to use with these or do you have to special order a reciever?

You cannot use Tapco flats to build these. Yugo recievers are a different length IIRC, not to mention the front trunion "bulges" like an RPK receiver...

Cold Steel Solutions offers an 80% pre-folded Yugo receiver that you drill out all the holes on, but it is around $45. You might as well spend $80 and get a DCI/Nodakspud receiver unless you are really into the "homebuilt not on the books" type thing.

you can modify a tapco flat to work, it will end up being a weld build. there was a guy in the build it yourself forum who did this.
