Gun Report

Yugoslavian SKS 7.62mm, $200

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The grenade launcher and sight contributed to a rifle weight of about half a pound more for this Yugoslav version, and the overall length was greater also. Gun Tests liked the carefully chosen stock wood, and this version's slightly better accuracy and slightly lower price. Note the butt pad. The overall condition of today's SKS's can seriously affect the selling price. If at all possible, shoot before you buy.

All the numbers didn't quite match, but overall condition was as good as that of the Albanian version. This one had a cleaner profile to the magazine box.
Quarter-sawn wood grain contributes to stock strength. Grain like this is what you should see on very powerful rifles, or on those that are destined to sling heavy grenades.
The front ladder sight for the grenade launcher lay flat against the top of the barrel until needed. It's shown here about half-way raised. It locked against the front sight firmly, to stay in place despite what must have been serious recoil during grenade launching. There were six ranges marked on the three steps, apparently for two different weights of grenade. Workmanship was excellent here.
