Default New to me 59/66 and a bonus

I stay in contact with my favorite shop where I used to live in another state. Called them a few weeks ago and a Yugo 59/66 had just came in.

They texted me some pics and it looked complete in g+ to VG condition. Priced at $347 OTD I thought it would be a good one to take a chance on.

I picked it up last week and was pleasantly surprised. It was indeed VG externally and like new internally. It looked like it had maybe been test fired - bore is shiney as a new nickel an there are no carbon fouling or firing residue on the bolt or bolt carrier. Piston looks new.

The big bonus:

It came with an Israeli practice rifle grenade and a 40rd box of Yugoslav 7.62x39 blanks.

All numbers match; stock has got some gouges and scratches.

It's got a Chinese SKS sling - I need a Yugo sling for it but otherwise it's complete.

For $347 OTD I am happy as a clam.

Yea the M59/66's are nice, a lot of them are unissued, they made them into the late 80's, $350 is a great price, they are drying up and whatever dealers still have them are charging around $460
"The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the "high powers" delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.' A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power." [Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859)
