Is it possible to re-attach it with the lugs shaved off?

yes depending on the model the bayo lug is integrated with the front sight or separate, and they can be put off and on driving out a small pin or two and pressing off the assembly. They are hard to find, however.

Typically the lugs were only shaved off on Chinese SKS rifles imported into the U.S. after 1989. If you have such a rifle then technically you would need to play the 922(r) game before you could add a bayonet or bayonet lug.

Its a Yugo (just like me). The guy who sold it to me shaved it off.

Is it an M59 or an M59/66? With the M59 the bayonet lug is a separate piece from the front sight assembly and with the M59/66 they are both on the same assembly, like paul0660 was saying.

there are new sights assemblies available from time to time. it would be possible to have a smith take off the ground one and put a new one on, then you'd have to re zero it.
serbian dont take this the wrong way please but were you in the JNA?

It is a M59. And Haggar, no I am too young. I was born during the downfall of my former country, but i wish I was. My Dad, all my Uncles, all my Grandfathers, some older Cousins were, but not at the time of the Civil War. Maybe one or two of my Godbrothers and/or Cousins were but IDK.

my stepfather who raised me was from Yugoslavian, Slovenia to be specific.he was stationed in Serbia and near albania from 81-83. he was a Desetar and commanded a battery for m9k11 majutka or polk rockets.his rifle was the m59/66 then later the m70.
even though i am not his son, he sure as hell treated me like his own and he gave me the old country up brining. i make wonderful chivachichi's and some other stuff i cant pronounce along with shine boots. i also drink slivowitz and araki (spelling?) with him.
i hope all your realitives made it through the late unpleasant stuff ok.

HAHA! Im not the only one on this forum!! I think you mean Ćevapčići (Ћевапчићи) and Šljivovica (Шљивовица) and Rakija (ракија)
And yes all mine made it through, thank you. If you ever find your self in San Diego we shall whip up some Ćevapčići and drink 'till fat girls are beautiful!

Edit: my father was also a Corporal in the JNA just like your Stepdad. And my Grandfather (his father) was a Colonel.

You guys aren't the only two, either. I'm moving to San Diego in a few months.

Careful with that Rakija, that stuff is potent. I prefer my Samogon (homemade vodka - http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A1%D0%B0%D0%BC%D0%BE%D0%B3%D0%BE%D0%BD) to homemade Rakija, my old roommate was from Belgrade and the stuff he whipped up was potent as all get out. He also made some really great food.

Check out Buymilsurp.com (http://www.buymilsurp.com/sks-original-rifle-parts-sks-parts-all-other-c-6_8_19.html) for old military weapons parts. They have turned up stuff for me that no one else could.

Serbian, the PPU plant in your country has brought me much shooting joy.

From Yugo 8mm to 7.62x54R to the .303 I have; my stash all practically Yugo/Serbian.
