Get my M59 sks out of jail tomorrow. Anything you Vets can pass down to a rookie? Will take pics of her tomorrow.

Buy lots of ammo and shoot the heck out of it.

And don't let anyone bash it for being a Yugo.

If its covered in cosmoline make sure you do a serious clean job, especially inside the bolt. I have had an sks slam fire on me.

have fun!

grr as much as I hate those things...

I will give ya some friendly advice. First give her a good scrubbing and lube her up a bit.

2nd buy as much ammo as you can.
3rd. Probably going to have to zero it. Most newbies take it out with out doing that and start blasting away. Then they get upset why they can't hit anything..then they hate SKS'. No Bueno.

do your zeroing @25 yards and here it is :)

if you are going to adjust it.. you will need one of these:

they don't always fit the front sights.. sometimes they require filing. Mine did to work with russian\romanian ones... the yugos (M59/66 GL removed) worked fine as is..

+1 Yup then you can start plinking at 100-300 yards, have fun, and join the SKS madness.

Only other advice I can say is this...when you buy one...more are sure to come and the infection will take over. Feel free to ask questions when SKS #2 is on the radar :)

I thought for sure SKSer45 would respond "Be sure to get friendly with Blitzburgh - he's got a ton of ammo for the SKS and I only got 1/2 way through his 1260 round case last week!"

hahahahahahahahaha

And Congrats! They are SO much fun to shoot! IMHO - the best gun made on the face of the planet. Inexpensive, reliable, cheap to feed, just downright plain awesome!

Thank you gentlemen for your helpful advice. Will clean her up well and zero her in. Glad to be infected with the best.

Ignore this man. He has no ammo of any kind. So sad :(

Buy some stripper clips if your ammo does not come with them. It makes loading much more enjoyable!

Have fun!

You guys know they do sell Yugo M-67 ball on clips right? I've seen it on AIM and more recently on SGammo.
