Hey Ivan and Daisy

Yup 1952 Yugoslavian Model 59 not that 59/66 SKS. So much cosmoline on it when I got it, but hey a little mineral spirits, a can of foamy engine brite, a can of Oven off no fume, some stain and sealant and some Bore Butter and it looks like that. Ahh Daisy your Norinco just has class thats all.

Traum,

mine is good for being half of a set of book ends but I can hold a 2 foot group at 100 feet. Just kiddin', it would make a lousy book end.
It's not really that bad but next to my Arg. Mauser my SKS is junk. I've read that most of the European SKS's were very good.

You know Daisy

When it came down to deciding which one I wanted I had to completely consider the resources available to the countries which produced them, I chose Yugoslavian because because only the Russian and Yugoslavian type 59 w/o grenade launcher is legal, so my choices were limited. But when I did some further research into it, Yugoslavia was sister to Russia and the 59 is a clone of the Tula Russian, just that the Yugo came from Zastava.Unfortunately in a way the any type 56 Mainly Chinese and Vietnamese just came out of spoils of war trade. Borrowed tech. They could have made their rifles so much better by importing minerals to combine with their shitty steel, but they didn't, I was so afraid of barrel and bolt warp that I wouldnt touch one. I mean no offense to your SKS's feelers, but that stuff was just in my opinion. I bet your Mauser is a beaut, isn't it a 8mm?

Chinese SKS

modified to suit local manufacturing methods, with slightly looser tolerances for its parts (mostly from being built sometimes in crude shops early in its Chinese manufacturing history), and designed to work with parts made from a lesser quality of steel (again, only at first). Later version have much better steel and quatily.

At first thought to be a modification of the SKS, it now appears that the SKS is an original, though rather strange design. The Type 63 was designed in the early 1960s specifically to give the People’s Militia forces a bit more firepower without having to make a lot more (and more expensive, in real-life terms at the time) Type 56 series assault rifles, and also to give them a design which was simple enough that they could make it themselves in backyard machine shops if necessary. The Type 63 is therefore a rather simple weapon with a rather crude appearance and questionable quality.

The Type 63 is semiautomatic and gas-operated; the gas system is simple, not quite like that of the SKS, and not quite like that of the Type 56 assault rifle; but not exactly a blend of the two, either. The Type 63 (as standard) is fed by 15-round steel magazines which are proprietary and will not fit into AK-series weapons despite having the same dimensions and holding the same ammunition. The magazines may also be topped off by loading them using stripper clips through the top of the receiver. The Type 63 has a knife-type bayonet which folds back underneath the barrel, and is otherwise permanently attached. Construction of the Type 63 is normally heavy (though there was considerable variation sometimes), with heavy steel metalwork and rather crude hardwood furniture. Sights normally consisted of a hooded front post and a tangent leaf adjustable rear. The 20.45-inch barrel’s bore is almost always unchromed, as is the chamber.

Though the Type 63 was meant to be fed only by that special 15-round box magazine, crafty militiamen quickly discovered that if the bolt catch is ground down, removed, or modified, the Type 63 can in fact accept AK and RPK-type magazines and drums. (The side effect of this modification is that the bolt catch no longer works.)

The Type 68 is sort of an "AKM version" of the Type 63; it uses a stamped steel receiver, has a few other minor modifications, and is in general less crude in its construction. Many were in fact factory-built, and most actually have a plastic handguard. The Type 73 updated the pattern further; the Type 73 has selective-fire capability and can accept AK and RPK-type magazines and drums as standard.

Twilight 2000 World: As the Twilight War wore on, more and more of these weapons were modified to use AK magazines.

Also note the Yugo's Don't have chrome lined barrels, the chinese does.

Traun, it's a 7.65X54

It was made by DWM. I bought a Loewe Arg. for my son.
I used mine to shoot in the DCM matches and did fairly well.
I used the 7.62X39 projectiles, excellent accuracy and very
mild recoil. Both calibers are .311. After qualifying in DCM
I bought an M1 Garand from the Army, MFG by International Harvester, I never
fired it and finally gave it to my son.

Very cool, 7.65x54??? That's an odd round, bet that's expensive stuff to get, especially now with the so called ammo shortage.

the ones I priced, non-I.H. were in the $2k range.
If I bought the Arg ammo, Norma is well over $20 per
20 rds. There is still some FMJ military avail cheap.
I rolled my own from 30-06 brass. Squish
it down to size, cut to length and voila, I left
the tired brass in the buckets at the ranges, bet
the scroungers were baffled when they picked up
"30-06" brass that I left for them. Actually they
are close to .308 at first glance.
At one time around the first of the 20th century
Winchester built rifles in the caliber, I think they
were commonly called .31 caliber, not sure.
My all time favorite is 1911A1, I'ne owned a few, all
good.
