I acquired this rifle today from a fellow Calgunner. I have been looking for one of these for a while. I almost ordered one from Wideners before I realized they were altered 59/66 rifles that still had the GL valve and removed GL tip.

This rifle appears to me to be a legit 59 PAP because there is no evidence of a GL ever having been on it or any sort of alterations.

NICE! These are great. I have a single specimen of the M59 and maybe I just got a nice one, but it is every bit as good as the Russian. Be nice to have a chrome bore, but still a dang nice firearm. Enjoy your new acquisition! :)

The bayonet is mounted in the correct place for an M59 and it has the correct buttplate for an M59.

I have three of them, but I don't think any of them have wood as nice as yours.

Super nice SKS congrats! I ordered one of those Wideners "Unissued" M59 SKSs. Mentione the order on the SKS Board and got a PM detailing how they weren't "real" M59 but 59/66's as you mentioned they still had the GL valve and the GL had been removed. I canceled the order before it got shipped.

Also the "gas port" in front of the hand guard is not like a 59/66. The bayo is in the correct place but, the M59 bayonet is supposed to be of a dark gray like color. It may have been replaced at one time or shined up. You got a real nice Yugo PAP M59 Bobby. Good score young man.

I did recognize prior to purchase that it didn't have the dark grey bayonet.. I don't know why because the entire gun appears as new from the factory. There would have been no reason to swap out any parts as you would on a beater milsurp one....

I picked the Yugo M59. There is no refurb mark on the stock anywhere. There are tiny proofs on either side of the bayonet but I can't tell what they say because they look half struck into the metal.

Any feedback or info is welcome. I really think this Yugo is nice and I hope it is all original.
