I don’t know anything about these but it looks like a winner. Cartouche remains, nice aged oil finish on the walnut. Beautiful rifle. Do you have to reload black powder for these or are .45-70 cartridges still made?

Yugoslavian SKS / Re: Serbian/Yugo Hammer Stuck Forward

People always clean the cosmo thoroughly out of the action etc prior to shooting.  As far as the stock goes, yes people sometimes refinish them, but often it only detracts from the 'atract-ability' of potential buyers later down the road.

Good to know! I wasn't certain what kind of finish it had. I'd actually expected to clean up a lot of cosmoline in the piston and action based on other things I'd read, but I didn't really find any.

My goal was just to clean it up and protect the wood with a simple finish that would retain the character as much as possible. Do folks typically not do any kind of clean-up or refinishing on these things?
