The Yugo M59 I just received from AIM isn't too bad. The wood is in good condition and looks nice, except for a couple dings and a gouge on one side right below the handguard. The metal bluing is probably 70% or so. Internals and bore look to be OK, but I haven't finished cleanup. Will do so this evening when I'm home from work. I'll post pics in here once I get my digicam back from my 'rents.

I suspect it will function fine. If everything works out, I'm gonna try to get another one for myself and maybe a couple to later sell to friends.

A Swede M96. Picked it up at a gun show. These seem to keep getting harder to find, and I've wanted one for a long time. Very sweet shooting rifle, and butter smooth action. About as accurate as my K31, which is saying alot. Scored an unissued M48 at the same show for $145.

I bought a couple of the 'nade launching SKS's a while ago. One with some obvious field experience and one of the unissued late models. Fun for burnin' up ammo, but the trigger is about the worst of any rifle I've fired. Of all the purchases I've made with my C&R, this is the only one I've considered selling. I'll probably keep the one with character and sell the other.

I think the next will be a K98. Prob'ly an RC. The M48 has me wanting another something in 8mm.

Buy more ammo,

About $240. So far that's the most I've paid for a C&R piece, but worth it to me. From what little I've seen and know, the Finns , the Swiss, and the Swedes made some of the most interesting examples of craftsmanship (and accuracy).

Speaking of the Finns, if you don't have an M39, it might be worth looking into.

By far the most influential factor affecting accuracy is the jerk on the trigger.

I never heard of this conversion, though i use those moags for other weapons.

I would need them if I used it in combat. By the time I got it reloaded I would be dead otherwise.



It's been a while since I've seen the website that showed how it's done. Both the mag & Hakim have to be tweaked, though the rifle mods aren't readily visible & don't preclude the use of the stock mag. The AWB put the kibosh on the conversion because the mods to the mag meant it couldn't be used in the MG13 anymore.

I got both of them from a board member here. The SVT was $600, and is in incredible shape!
