Girlfriend just got me a Yugoslavian PAP M59/66 SKS (7.62x39) as an early birthday gift. Pretty sweet toy. It's complete with bayonet and grenade launcher. If I'm not careful I am going to have to keep her around!...haha. I went out and bought the original side scope mount and an old rangefinding 4X scope to add to it. All the serial numbers and everything match on stock/receiver/barrel. I have no doubt this was actually a gun used in wartime. Awesome addition to my collection, I will try and get some photos on here if I can overcome my computer illiteracy.

I like Slavic rifles. They tend to better made and better machined than other East European guns. I looked a t a Yugo model 48 ( 98 Mauser ) today at a gun show and tho I wasnt shopping for a 8mm I was struck by how well made it was for a sevice grade rifle. With a bent bolt and a good scope it would have been a heck of a hunting rifle, tho it was a bit heavy.

Good luck with your SKS.
