Zastava SKS Carbines 59/66 are considered destructive devices in California and therefore may not be purchased, possessed, imported, or kept for sale without a permit.

These weapons were incorporated into the Yugoslavian Army in 1966 and are constructed with grenade launchers on them. The factory brochure claims that the grenade launcher launches a 22 mm (approximately .80 caliber) grenade.

Based on the information in the factory brochure, this grenade launcher is a destructive device, and enumerated as such in California Penal Code section 12301(a)(4). Possession of such a device can be a felony. Please contact us if you anticipate purchasing this weapon.

Isn't that why they have the cali-legal SKSs with holes drilled in the grenade launcher to make a muzzle brake?

Yep, you can find 59/66s in CA, just without the defining feature of the 66 part.

California is great the laws F'n suck,so does paying 12,000 for a M-16 can you walk into a gunshop in your state and walk out with a M249?I'm sure if our founding fathers were here today they would agree with me. I wiil one day leave Ca and get away from its gun laws but what realy sucks is that I will have to spend a 100,000 or more to get a decent NFA collection but Iam not going to say F America I sayF gun control.
