Today I shot my yugo sks for the first time. Rifle function with no problems. Only put 60 rouds thru it to get a feel for the saftey,trigger pull and gas system. I really enjoyed shooting it. Shot at 50 yards at a 6 " square and was putting all the rounds in the square after adjusting the sights. I will get me another one to "bubba" it for hog hunting. Cheap shooting pleasure, almost had to smoke a cigarrette aftered.

Good to hear a good range report! I just got one today and I've started the 'clean and bake' routine. Man, they sure are cosmoed up huh!? I'm really looking forward to getting mine to the range and check it out. I hope by next weekend.

I made an oven out of 1/2 plywood and 3 light bulbs to get the cosmo out. I will use this oven with one 40 watt bulb to dry out the stock on painting. I use a combination of things to get rid of that cosmo. I wash and wipe down in mineral spirits, then I baste the stock in rubbing alcohol, then bake it, rubbing alcohol,then bake it till I see no more cosmo. But it is still there. Maybe next time I would add some potatoes and carrots when I bake the stock. Can't hurt.

Many pots of boiling water works VERY well.
