The one I saw was supposed to be the best one they had in the store and it was in pretty bad shape. You may not have missed out too badly, I would have bought one too.

I've read elsewhere these are not Norinco and are classified as Curios and Relics by BATFE. Any truth to this? I have C&R/COE that's why I ask. Not that they will honor 10 day wait exemption as they have before, but worth a try.

Picked one up last sat in Norwalk. They told me it would come from their warehouse. Luck of the draw I guess.

these are not made by norinco but not listed as c&r. it's known chinese sks are not c&r due to lack of manufacturing data.

There's manufacturing data for /26\ (Jianshe) arsenal, at least, for the early SKS made there. These are C&Rs based on date of manufacture.

The one I got is from 1959, for example.

did you buy it from turner's as c&r? where's your manufacturing data come from? is that something batfe will accept?

They appeared identical to the Yugoslavian I have. I was hoping for a spike bayonet SKS. Still a great rifle.

Here's a good site for the info: http://www.yooperj.com/SKS-24.htm

I bought mine from J&G as a C&R. These are Century imports, from the same batch as those at Turner's.

Those Chinese SKS are listed on this week's flyer again. Why are they listed as "Good" condition? They don't look in too good of condition. I called one of the stores, and the sales guy said they are in pretty bad shape.

I thought they sold out of all SKS? They get a new shipment in? Maybe they in better shape then the last. Wishful thinking. lol

they are not collectibles, most of them have very little blueing left, stocks are well worn but good bores...

they are great shooters. it's amazing how they a beating and keep on ticking...

FV store has plenty of these rifles. apparently many people had buyer remorse over their condition and cancelled their orders...

I'm also told these latest batches are exported by Vietnamese communist government.

The ones in Oxnard look like and feel like crap. The barrels look pitted, I wouldn't buy one for more then 100$.

There have been quite a few decent ones in this overall batch, but the half dozen I have seen in person were rust buckets so I passed.

Anybody seen these Yugo's at Turners? They advertised as unissued. How are they?

Got in on the $249 & cleaned her up nice. Rifling is very good and is a sweet shooter. Now Turners pulls me back again. thanks for the deal turners. Stopping by tomorrow. Better to get a complete semi auto for 399 than a stripped lower for 300!

Purchased one and they look great! A week ago I went to a place in murrieta and they had a dirty sks for around $450 but never called me back their loss. Today I get an email of their ad and jumped on it got there a cuple hours before they closed and the paper work was a breeze

I bought two today. They are not C&R. The salesman told me they are never issued Yugo SKS from the 80s. They didn't expect the stock to last past the end of today. 80-90% of the stock they had was already sold.

I went to Downey store.

C&R does not always mean 50 years old. The Walther P1 is C&R no matter what year it was made. So is the Bren ten.

I actually asked specifically if they were C&R as well and he said no.

I just Dros'ed one. These are 100x better than the Chinese ones they were selling before.
There is was like 4 left at the Norwalk store when I left.
They look practically new, it actually matches the picture from the ad now.

Not really. I walked in and pulled number 32 while currently serving 29, but was helped within 5-10 minutes.

I actually asked specifically if they were C&R as well and he said no.

if I was buying one, I'd bring in a print out of the C&R list that shows that all Yugo M59 and M59/66's made from 1947-1992 are C&R, and that with a C&R/COE I can cash-and-carry after DROS.

It might take a call to corporate to get it straightened out.

And even if Turner's doesn't think it is C&R, if you are an 03FFL, you should still lst it in your bound book.

12-28-2012, 5:51 PM
Good to know. I haven't actually started the DROS yet, so I'll try that when I go back in a few days.

I looked at the one in San Bernardino today and it was sold while in my hands. They said they started with 40 per store and now have 30 left across the whole chain. So I got one.

I got one from the Pasadena store tonight around 6pm. The one they had on display looked brand new unfired. Dropped my 30% deposit and started the DROS.

Reseda Turners have the Yugo SKS for 499, they look pretty good, still I think they overpriced

Orange has them for $399 not sure why Reseda jacked up the price. And i agree they did look good, much better than the ones they had a few weeks back.

Bought one this morning at the Corona store. Wood is excellent, looks really clean - no cosmoline so you see the bore and all. They still have a few left.
