Welcome from WA!

Weíd like to see that Yugoslavian. They didnít make the SKS in 1952 so Iím guessing thatís a typo.

The stock is unnumbered. The bolt carrier, bolt, and the trigger assembly all have the full five digit serial number.

Attached are a few pics of the receiver cover/mount. Like I said, I never cared for these, but I never saw one like this. All the ones that use screws to further secure the mount that I've seen were the Leapers mounts. It is stamped "POLY TECH CHINA" on the left side.

Hey jpeppers, is the stock number matched to the gun?  What about components. Do they match the receiver S/N exactly or did they drop the 08?

I don't know if Russia actually used the .380, I highly doubt it, I think it was done to gain in sales being a caliber we, in North America were more familiar with. These were made and imported either in .380 or 9mm Mak, the rounds are very close in power, no changes in the design was needed short of the barrel and makes the magazines interchangeable. The model numbers reflect the caliber, IJ-70 17A, is 9x17mm, standard magazine cap, a IJ-70 18A is 9x18mm, 9mm Mak standard mag cap. There were also high cap models, say, IJ-70 18H, the A and H denote mag capacity, instead of 8rds, they are double stack 12rd, and now highly expensive. Also there were conversion kits to swap barrels, not the easiest thing as I understand, but it could be done, knock a pin out, and use a small press.

Outstanding man. Very nice indeed. How do you like the sight picture through that optic?

Nice GM. Pretty soon you're going to start buying other commercial Maks because this one will get lonely!  rofl

Was this gun chambered in .380 from the factory?  I didn't realize the Russians used that caliber. Very neat.

For me, it was a little easier to use than the traditional blade like the Bulgarian, but I think the worst thing is the front sight, that little dinky skinny nub likes to vanish, especially in bright sun light. Like any commie handgun, the sights kind of suck compared to more modern pieces. As I have read, the elevation screw is kind of fragile, but I didn't need to adjust it, I did give the windage a little tweak.

That plate just tripled in price Pat!  rofl

No idea on the size and I don't have a fiberglass stock in my collection to check.  I'd assume it's a standard metric thread though. The screw should be pretty easy to find once you know the diameter. From there you'd just have to find the pitch and there are only a few of those that are standard for each diameter.  That plate is going to be a fun one. Good luck with it!  thumb1
