Hey guys,

I recently acquired an almost all matching good condition Yugo M59/66 SKS. I don't like it very much because it has a Tapco stock on it and I am into the original configuration with the wooden stock. I thought all hope in trying to find the original matching stock was lost until a few days ago when the seller told me he found it in a stoke of luck. But what he couldn't locate was the original handguard. The stock is good enough because I know that is where the serial number is located. But I still would like the original handguard to complete the rifle. And being a Yugo SKS the readily available Chinese SKS handguards wont fit so I have to find a Yugo-specific part. But my luck in locating one for a good price hasn't been all that great. Do you any of you guys know where I could find a Yugo M59/66 handguard?

I'd suggest you post up on the Survivor SKS forum in a couple of places. There's General SKS, plus Yugo SKS sections, and a Want to Buy area. Maybe start in Yugo section and see what pops up. Seems to me there should be a lot of those handguards out there because so many have bubba'd their SKS's.

Do you know if the Type 56 handguard is the same? If so, I have an extra.

The wood only will be compatible. But, with the 59/66, the gas tube will not fit. The 59/66 is flared at the gas shut off valve. As we all know there is no shut off valve on the M56.
