I got a chance to handle and inspect a 59/66 Yugo the other day. There was still some traces of cosmoline on it but from what I could see the front sight has a pin locking it to the barel?

Also it appeared that the barrel was machined down so sight assembly would slip on, but barrel diameter in front of sight was larger. So from the looks of it the entire barrel forward of sight could be removed if that pin was knocked out. There was another pin farther forward where grenade launcher adapter fit.

Was I seeing things? Is that how they're built?
