Weee! Picked it up today (Thanks PK90 ). It's in excellent shape, but needs some serious cleaning of cosmoline. It even has some nifty flip-up nightsights!

Here's the page where I'll be posting up more pictures as I clean:

Looks good!!! I know a guy in CO. who does excellent trigger work very quickly and reasonably if you want to take most of the slack and long pull out of that trigger. I can hit an empty 20lb. propane tank off the bench at 200 yards easily with mine.

At least I hope it's empty!

After I get it all cleaned up and get in some range time I'll see if I want to get any work done on it. Hopefully I'll have enough time today to get much of the cosmoline off, but we'll see...Wife may not approve of me using the oven...

Nice SKS...Also, if thats the Yugo ammo that comes on the stripper clips, I believe its corrosive, so be sure to clean the gun accordingly after shooting. Are you going to bring it to the NJ Blast? Here is a good for step by step photos of how to take it all apart and get it all cleaned....enjoy..

Yeah, the ammo is most certainly corrisive (1977 dated Yugoslavian manufacture). It'll be getting a good cleaning after getting home from each time at the range.

I won't be making it to the blast, though, as I'll be on a cruise .

That old cosmoline is like glue when trying to get the damn thing apart...I'm letting it soak in the sun right now. My fingers are sore as hell from trying to pry the barrel/reciever off the stocks...Finally got it. I'm not quite sure how they got cosmoline in some of these places, but oh well ....I only got a little on myself...my shirt...pants....hands...everything I touched...

Very Nice


Whats that pointy thingy on the front

Yeah, that pig sticker looks cool hanging underneath the barrel.

I wonder if those sighting dots are just painted on, or if its really luminous material?

I was making light of the BAYONET, never see them in NJ. That is one nice SKS, though.

Welp, after like 6 hours straight of cleaning I'm finally finished! There was tons of cosmoline packed in all sorts of places. After letting it sit in pieces in the sun for about an hour I got out my wife's pressure steamer thing and steamed all the metal parts to get off as much cosmoline as possible. I steamed the various parts for 2 hours straight! Then I soaked the parts in solvent, scrubbed them, cleaned the bore and gas piston/cylinder, took the bolt assembly apart (which took an hour to get the stupid retaining pin out). Put it all back together (lightly oiled), and viola. Now I'm tired as hell. I can hardly type right.

The pointy bit adds character . I'm too tired for Dix tomrrow.

I've been fondling one down in a local shop. The grades and price vary from $129-$200. The $200 one is the one I want. Nice laminated stop, unissued. The next few days it will be MINE!

9/22 update

It is now in my possession. Degreasing process will commence tonight.

That's a PERTY rifle

I am looking to pick one up also to round out my collection.

I just picked up a pre pre ban AK47. I am refinishing it now, Came with Bayo, cleaning kit, oiler, 4 mags, And leather they call a sling.

Hunter Sports has a nice SKS with a scope on it that I am thinking of getting

I need to work a bit of wood oil into the stocks to make em color up a bit and then it's set. I can't wait to go shoot it!

I see shooting my SKS at Buckeye has brought you over to the DARK SIDE!!!!

Nice rifle...

What did it run you???

I can not have a pig sticker on the end of my Norinco SKS...
(Jersey laws make no sense!)

Glad you picked something up besides the handguns. Now you will be able to reach out and touch things from a distance!!!

It was $139.95 from AIM, plus $13 or so shipping. Really it was a great deal, especially considering what excellent condition it's in. It's not perfect, but it's certainly damn good. Those bowling pins better watch out!!!

I just got me two M1 Garands, too. I got a Greek HRA Correct Grade and a USGI SA Rack Grade. The Rack Grade is actually amazing looking, with only 1 small crack that I'm not even going to worry about. They didn't mark TE/MW, but the bullet test rates the same as my Correct Grade. The Correct Grade is alright, honestly. All the parts matching makes it cool, though. The metal is in excellent condition, but the stocks are so-so, with the buttstock not matching the handguards and being minorly beat up. But all is well as I'm going to work on it a bit. I think the handguards just need some oil.
