I hear you on every word... I also have lady that doesn't really care unless I am not paying the bills. I also need a new safe that will fit through the door. :blink:I only have 1 yugo however I own about 20 different rifles. If I had the cash I would buy more. I love collecting rifles and guns, For now I need to look at getting another safe to store my guns.
My wife doesn't care too much for my rifles but she understands my passion for collecting them.
The small size winchester shock pads they sell at Walmart fit the SKS stock, I have a medium one on over the Tapco plastic adjustable stock, but you have to cut it a bit to let the strap swivel through.Just the one Yugo 59/66A1 for me, but I think I'm really going to get rid of it after the beating it gave me today.
Granted, the other rifle calibers I'm used to shooting are both .22's (.22lr and .223), but I'm not a very buff guy and have practically no padding on my shoulders, so after 50 rounds of x39 beating against bone I already had a bruise and spend the rest of the afternoon flinching. With the .22lr. I have no problems with .223's, though. Guess that added oomph is a little much for me.
Guess that kills my dream of having an M-24 SWS clone in .300 Win Mag. :angry:
At least I found out it functions 100% with Wolf MC JHP's without having to do a chamber job on it.
My original norinco paratrooper was 89 bucks, with 2 boxes of chinese steelcore ammo tossed in!!! Those were the days.Just lurking around and stumbled across this...Bought a Norinco way back when for $89. Sold it for $200 and bought a nice Tula to replace it. I'm more into "one of each" than assembling a stable of clones. I'm into the history a bit I guess.
