I had to post this one. A friend of mine was at a "mom and pop" gun store about an hour away and he called me when he left. He knew I was (fond) of the SKS's and he said there was an SKS on the rack with some cosmoline on it but he didn't know what it was. So I called the store and the old fella answered, I asked about the SKS and all he said was, "the tag say's Zastava M59"
and I don't know much about these, It's on consignment and my wife took it in a few months ago. I asked him if it had a grenade launcher on it? And the next quote was "Hell no", why would it have that?
. So now I'm LMAO and said I'll be right up. Behold, a Yugo M59 before my eyes, with cosmoline on it. So we talked and the price was $450.00 and after we talked more I told him I was retired military and he served in Korea, so after hitting it off I walked out of there with it for $365.00. I hope this don't get me the coveted "you suck" award, but if it does I understand. Pics are not great, it's cloudy but the stock and everything is in very nice shape. My only flaw I see is someone mis-marked the trigger guard by 1 number, other than that everything matches. Enjoy the pics! image posting
