Very nice specimen...  Are there any numbers on the side of the inner magazine when you drop the outer?  Does it match the trigger housing number?
Yes, but it doesn't match the trigger.  It appears to be 3 digits, 681 or 687.  It's electro-pencil.   I didn't see that before!

Those are the “assembly numbers”. They should also match each other, except, of course, on your mismatched trigger group.
So it's safe to say, it's "mostly" a matching rifle?  Not that it really matters much,  but I really appreciate this info!!!  thumb1 I'm sure it'll be a nice shooter, "I hope"...

The general rule on the M59 unlike all others is if the Receiver, Stock, Bolt, and Bolt carrier match, then its all matching. Sounds like you got the hook up at the mom and pop gun store : ) 300.00 for any SkS is pretty cheap. Yeah post up pics of that bad boy chi com : )

No serial numbers on the trigger, cover, and mag is normal... your seeing production assembly numbers prior to the rifle being serialized.

For certain.  If you look at the number stamped (or sometimes ep’d) at the bottom of the barrel lug, they will likely all match.

Nice on the 22 mil /636\ pickup. $300 is an excellent price. You can pick up a spike bayo for that badboy pretty easily these days for ~$35 or so.  thumb1

The bayonet lug has been milled off!  Pic's today when it gets light out... As soon as I get a few pics, I'll post it in the Chinese forum.

You all are "REALLY" gonna hate me... I got a call today, from the shop I purchased the Yugo from, "because I asked them if they got any more SKS's in"  From the woman who owns the shop and they said they just got in a Chinese SKS.  She said they bought it "Cheap" because it was missing the bayonet.  Sooooooooo.....  I now own it... $300.00, out the door...  I'll post it on the Chinese side tomorrow!  I just "DON'T EVER"  have this kind of luck!!!   :o :o :o.  Oh, It has a triangle arsenal stamp 636 and serial# is in the 22 millions.   I've never bought 2 guns in 3 days. :o

Today was cosmoline removal day and I'm sure most of you have "been there"  3 hours and a half gallon of mineral spirits later "with" a can of brake clean for the tiny holes and places...
Stock cleaned and wiped with furniture polish, everything got a new fresh light coat of CRC and gun oil.  She's as pretty as a new car! I shot it about an hour ago, things were "very stiff". 
Action was very sluggish but did loosen up.  The gun is tight.  after some sight adjustment and 60 rounds I was doing about 3" groups at 50 yards.  I'm Quite happy with it, A couple hundred more rounds and she'll be fully ready and capable! Enjoy the pics.

Neat. I've never seen a M59 before, in person. I've only seen M59/66s..

I was at a gun store in Sacramento wednesday and they had a M59 that was all beat up for 699.00  chuckles1

You did good. M59 is the most accurate sks if you ask me. Non chrome bbl and the smell of cosmoline while on the cheek at aim is the advantage among all others .

I was so inspired by welderdave and the beauty of his m59 I thought id show a few of his brothers. I dont think I have one nicer one than the one Dave has displayed.. All mine are the normal C letter guns. Nothing special here. thumb1

Yeah I remember seeing that thing on Allens Armoury website bout 5 years ago or so. It sat there and sat there for about 2 or 3 weeks. You scored big on that. I was still wondering what those things were back then. Ooooh Boy.. That is the one isn't it ?
