B Series M59
« on: September 17, 2014, 01:54:03 AM »
Ok, on top of being an uncommon Yugoslavian M59, this 'ol girl takes it one step further, it's a "B" series. A true rarity in the Yugo line.  This was actually bought from Allan's Armory, a wonderful way to break in a C&R renewal. It's a mismatch and sports the 1.TRZ stamp on the butt stock, the bore has some haze, but nice rifling.











I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

Leave the gun take the cannoli.

This is a beautiful specimen. That's a shame about the bore, you're right though the lands look decent. Were these not chrome plated or just simply too much corrosive ammo?

The bore looks better in person. Like Worm states, the Yugoslavian model SKSs are not chrome lined. None, with the exception of a few rebuilds that came in about a year or so ago. I think they were Bosnian rebuilds????? And, I think they were toted as being M59s, when they were actually rebuilt M59/66s, altered, with the grenade launcher removed.
