Thru reasearch I've found there IS NO WAY to determine the year it was made via serial number.

Even the BATF can't tell ;) :D

Yugoslavia is the only country that produced these weapons with the grenade adapter starting in 1966. Mind you, there are Yugoslavian SKS's made from 1959-1965, which are identical to Romanian SKS, that do not have a grenade launcher. There are no factory codes or identifying stamps for Yugos

Russian: The Russian numbering system follows the typical eastern European serial number system of two letters followed by the numerals 0001-9999. The first rifle would be number AA0001. If the first character equates to the number 0, the character "E" would equate to 5. This would mean serial number yB2388 would be the 1922388th SKS produced.

Chinese: These numbers indicate year of manufacture. Traditional belief in gun circles dictates the serial number equates to the year of manufacture. However, recently the opinion that each factory started with 1000001 in the various years they came online. I don't believe this second theory to be true, but nobody can say for sure. You decide. See next section Year of Manufacture for the details of what I believe and have seen to be consistent with rifle quality (generally, quality declines the later the production. Generally.)

Yugoslavia: No known system. Typically 6 digits long.

Yugoslavian Production started in 1959 for the standard Simonov design, and 1966 for the grenade launching design. Nobody knows when production ended or how many were made. It is believed production records were destroyed in the recent Yugoslavian civil war. It is commonly believed by the historical firearm community that there is no way of determining the year of manufacture by looking at the weapon.




Shoot, that one looks like its an elusive 1956 model year and is legal for F-2-F sales ;) hahaha.

All I can tell you for sure is that it is a Yugo M59, no idea on the date and as you have already wrote, I have no way of knowing either.:eek:

Jemadux, quick questions for you. Do the barrel, reciever, and magazine have matching serial numbers?
Also, how many rounds have you put through it?

Well, the slide and the receiver have the same numbers on them. I do not see where the numbers would be for the barrel. The mag has a number 00-000 and the receiver has five numbers so I have no idea if that is even suppose to be that way or something different.

I have only run about 20 rounds threw the rifle.

He means face to face, paperless long gun sale (legal on C&Rs which are 50+ years old, but I don't think an FFL can do this, just someone selling from their personal collection).

As this is a Yugo, and they started making 'em in '59, the answer should be no.

Thanks Gram, now I understand. No I can not do a PPT, or F to F as an FFL.

The rifle is in good shooting condition. The Barrel has no scoring or pitting. No rust on any of the metal. I did shoot it a couple times and it showed to be accurate out at 100 yards.
