I hear you ... nice pickup!

Just bought a Navy Arms (made by Zoli) Zouave black powdah rifled musket for $175 and the lock inside and under the barrel was COVERED w/ cosmoline.

I had to laugh ... 1st time I’ve seen that! Then again, the lock dates to 1960 and overall the condition is mint!

if yours is anything like mine, that I bought years and years ago, just wait until you try to put the trigger group back in after taking it out to clean all the cosmoline out of it. fun times are to be had :D

I will tell you this, take the bolt completely apart and clean the snot out of it, it will be packed in cosmoline.

Watch out and take care. Those sks's are addictive. Pretty soon you will be buying blanks and inert grenades to shoot off of the yugo. Then the Yugo's kinfolk from other countries (China, Russia, Romania, Albania etc.) will want to move in.

It goes downhill quickly from there.

You have been duly warned. :lol:

Yes, SKSs are like Gremlins, they self replicate. Glad I was able to help. PAX

Used one for a year as a utility rifle. An accurate rifle and, yes, it is fun to shoot.

I love 59/66A1 guns. What I love more is when a a new owner and an over zealous cleaner shuts off the gas, cant get the grenade site to lay flat, and wonders why the gun wont cycle anymore. I've seen it once and got a chuckle from it.
