I've not been around fireworks for decades, and don't know where to buy (former) Warsaw Pact grenades.

Are modern versions of the old small 'cherry bomb' or M-80s still made, which could be made to launch around July 4th?

Going to 'mark' D-Day today by going with a friend (originally from Germany) to a local river and shoot bricks and coke jugs with my British-made Lee Enfield Jungle Carbine, Nor. SKS or Mini 30 (a la M-1), and His AR-15.
Is this ironic (and he has never owned a Mauser)?

Roll pin for grenade launcher...

Hmmmm...ever since I pressed that .125" roll pin through the grenade launcher and muzzle, my accuracy has degraded considerably....
...plus my barrel seems rather bloated!
Beats me, man!

N'yuk, n'yuk!

I think a more pertinent question might be "Why do people take the grenade launchers off Yugos?" If you don't like grenade launchers, don't buy historical rifles that have grenade launchers.

people took the bayonet of the russian carbines and found they dont shoot where they should.that might happen to the sks.besides it helps keep the muzzel down when shooting.

Another reason to leave it on is because of the C&R status the Yugo has. If you remove the GL, the rifle is no longer in 'original military configuration', and no longer qualifies as a C&R arm. It then become a non-importable weapon and you have to play the 10 parts or less game according to the provisions of 922(r).

I find this question amusing... I LEFT the grenade launcher on my Yugo SKS because... imagine this, now... I ACTUALLY LAUNCH ( dud) GRENADES off of it!!! I know!!! Crazy talk, right?!?!? I mean who would have imagined SUCH a use?!?!?

I get close to a hundred yards without a grenade attacked to the launcher, and about 50-65 with.

I still have hundreds of blanks to send them off...

AND...

I know THIS will defy belief...


I attach a GOLF BALL LAUNCHER to it... and launch golf balls into the next county!!

Talk about a hoot!!!

You go taking your grenade launcher off, and you have just NEUTERED one of the most FUN parts of a Yugo SKS you could possibly have!!

You have NO IDEA the fun you are missing out on!!!

If you remove the grenade launcher then you can not launch grenades. (BTW: the M59/66 uses standard NATO spec rifle grenades, not "Warsaw Pact" units) If you remove the bayonet then you can not use the bayonet. If you simply want a shorter SKS, buy a shorter SKS and leave the M59/66 alone! If you have a M59/66 and want something different, trade it for something different! If you bought a $60 "cracked stock special" from AIM years ago that had no finish on it and did not cycle, and wanted a rifle that did not exist... MAKE ONE

Part of buying the Yugo is being able to buy a military firearm that for an SKS, came in a unique configuration. Dont like it take it off, if you like it keep it. Either way, ya aint gonna be shootin any damn grenades with it!!!!!!!!!

I like the launcher.

I made a bad mistake about 5 years ago.
I bought 20 Yugo's, brand new. Each had tiger stripe in the stock for $2000.00. Not one scratch, not one dent in the stock. They were the best I have ever seen.
I was going to keep two for myself, but got talked out of them. They were all gone in less than a week once the word was out how nice they were at just $150.00.
I had all 20 sold for $150 each, in the box, you clean them. Made some good money, but at the time, I thought they would stay low priced because the AK 47 was the big thing.

I wish I had a couple now, they were the nicest Yugo's I've ever seen.

The gernade launcher is kind of different. I mean how many weapons come with one, pretty darn cool.

Count me as one who thinks the GL is useless...bayonet too...might as well be carrying a full length rifle in a full power rifle cartridge. Launching golf balls or fake grenades doesn't do anything for me...shot enough real ones out of an M203 in the military to satisfy me. If it doesn't explode on impact and destroy something what's the point? So I removed the GL on my 59/66, also the bayo, bayo mount, GL sight and flip up night sights. I cut the barrel down to 18" and recrowned, then I ground the front sight assembly down to just the front sight and reinstalled it back into it's original position. Now I have a handy carbine without all the extra weight and length to deal with. I have an M59 also...it remains untouched. My 59/66 was a beater and I bought it as a project gun...would not have cut up a nice one. But then again I wouldn't have bought a nice 59/66 to begin with...too long and heavy a rifle for the cartridge IMO.

the grenade launcher also works as a very effective flash suppressor.

I took the grenade launcher site off of my Yugo and It did improve the appearance but I left the muzzle device on as it tends to send the muzzle noise down range and not back to my ears. It makes it slightly more bearable to shoot. To each is own.

Just curious as to why you like the Norinco SKS rifles. Thanks!

Chrome lined, no gas valve to corrode like a Yugo, & every one has been 100%.

You folks are correct in pointing out that actual milsurps should not be permanently altered (though some are said to be beyond help).
A classic military rifle is a classic. Civilian-styled guns never really appealed to me.

None of my guns, whether the Yugo Mauser, Norinco SKS, four Enfields and Garand have been modified one bit. The same goes for my ancient (1940's) Savage .22 and wood/ss Mini 30.

As I've always suggested on other websites that Enfields and other classics (before the SKS) not be altered, it hit me that my topic here is hypocritical, to be frank.
But having contradicted my own 'policy', still always enjoy reading everybody's views.

I bought a beater yugo when they were like $100, cut of the barrel down to 17" and ditched the bayonet and GL, great brush gun, reliable as holy crap. Wish I had bought a nice one too when the "select" grade was like $150, wish I had also bought a albanian when they were like $89. Are the days of sub $200 dollar semi auto milsurps over? Yes I think they are, and for that I'm sad.

I like your thinking! That's why mine is still pristine. (It shoots great and looks cool.)
