Very nice! Good price too. Only 19, so these should be gone in an hour.

California compliant and California C&R eligible are 2 different things. These are great rifles (I have 2) but no way are they 50+ years old.

The above applies to the M59, not the 59/66 if I am not mistaken. Most of the 59/66's are 1970's production.

These are 59/66's. They were produced 1967-1989. They are not 50+ years old, therefore they can't legally be received by a 03 FFL in CA.
At least not until 01-01-2014.

Not to contradict anybody, but Classic has those listed as C&R Eligible and it looks to me like they would ship them to an 03 FFL. I was able to resist, but not by very much. 5 left as I type this...

Just made my first C&R purchase (I ordered a Garand from the CMP, but it's taking forever)! Thanks for lookin' out.

When people said having a C&R wasn't going to save you money, I didn't know what they meant but now I know... It's too easy when you can get them shipped right to your door

They are C&R. No one is claiming that they aren't. They just aren't 50+ years old which is a CA requirment for shipment to a 03 FFL in this state.

All gone. Whew!

Agreed Trickster, I was so worried about my credit card trying to get out of my wallet that I didn't read carefully.

There have been cases where retailers back east list guns that are 'C&R' and will send them to California. It is on the buyer to make sure that the gun is eligible to be shipped directly to an FFL03 in California. The same thing happened with the Widener's 'M59'.

The Yugo 59/66 can be found locally as they pop up from time to time and $350 is no special deal per se. I bought this one at Big 5 last year and it is MINT. it was sub $350 OTD on clearance.

Yep, and I've been hearing whispers that this did not go unnoticed.:oji:

i sure wish my 59/66a1 had that muzzle brake and that other metal part behind the muzzle brake still on the barrel. my CA yugo got its grenade launcher cut off and that other piece removed leaving a ugly grove cut in the barrel . otherwise i love my yugo. you did good. i only have one SKS [sold my beater turners alby] and want another. i am not a collector, i like to shoot them all.

So after reading this thread, I have realized I need to try and have this go through an FFL01 rather than directly to me.

Does anyone know where in the CA law it specifies that it must be over 50 years old even if it's on the federal C&R list? I contacted Classic telling them about this and their response was basically "This is a C&R rifle".. I was hoping to find the actual law / wording around this issue.

27545. CA Penal code.
Where neither party to the transaction holds a dealer’s license issued pursuant to Sections 26700 to 26915, inclusive, the parties to the transaction shall complete the sale, loan, or transfer of that firearm through a licensed firearms dealer pursuant to Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 28050).



27965. CA Penal Code
(a) If all of the following requirements are satisfied, Section 27545 does not apply to the sale, loan, or transfer of a firearm:

(1) The sale, loan, or transfer is infrequent, as defined in Section 16730.

(2) The firearm is not a handgun.

(3) The firearm is a curio or relic manufactured at least 50 years prior to the current date but is not a replica, as defined in Section 478.11 of Title 27 of the Code of Federal Regulations, or its successor.

(b) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2014, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2014, deletes or extends that date.

Basically what your C&R License is letting you do is receive the long gun from out of state. CA then requires that it be 50+ years old. That will go away on 01-01-2014. At that time all the rifle will need to be is CA legal and qualify as a C&R but you will have to self register it like you now do with C&R handguns purchased out of state. You will also need to have a COE.

Chinese were nicer rifles at a better price.
