Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Yugo M59/66A1

#1 Post by Dannyboy53 » Fri Aug 02, 2019 6:55 pm

Recently I got this carbine and was surprised at what great condition it's in, all matching also. This is my first Yugo, I knew nothing about them before now. I bought it from an individual that had it for a while and never fired it, I had to clean the cosmoline out of it and it looks as though it has not been fired since going through refurb at some point. The bolt, gas tube, valve and bore all look new and the stock shows signs of having been sanded lightly. It shoots great and functions flawlessly.
The "night sights" no longer work but I'm told that is normal for this Phosphorous type, they look like painted-on dots. At any rate, I doubt I would be using them.

This is how I found it.
