Mine is R64579X, and just like the one at the bottom of your list above, it is marked "C.A.I. GEORGIA VT.; ZASTAVA SERBIA M59/66 7.62 x 39" as well. Does that still mean it was made in 1980? Also, with that import stamp, does that give any clue as to when this firearm was imported?

Yes on the '80 manufacture (as far as we know).  The CAI stamp is a newer one for a Yugo, likely into the late 2000's possibly even the early 2010's and probably the last CAI Yugos imported.  See: List of Yugoslavian M59 & M59/66 Importers.

Thanks for the verification and the link to that other thread on importers.  My markings look just like #10 on that list.

Thought I would provide an update. The trigger groups came back and work great. The yugo stock was finished and so the yugo sks is completely assembled. Now I'm just waiting on the the aftermarket stock to get its cross bolt put in and some finishing work there. Once I have both carbines completed, I'll take proper pictures of them (I have a set of three good lights and I'll get a really good white background to put behind the carbines for the best results possible).
