my dad bought a yugo underfolder not to long ago and waited till i was on leave to take it out and break it in, though we only shot 110rds or so through it i got a good idea about the rifle and must say i like it.

Ammo Used
wolf 122gr fmj 110rds we had already ben there 9 hrs and we were finishing up, with a little ne gun trigger time, just to check it out.

Fit and Finish
This rifle was lnib and maybe had 20-30rds through it. it looks great. it is solid and robust. the stock folds under and locks positvly under and is released by a push button on the left side of the rear of the reciever. it locks in the unfolded postion just as smartly. the bolt moves very freely and is very smooth. the safety is of the everyday ak variety and is nice and smooth. the wooden forearm is nice and smooth without a single ding.

Accuracy
Though we didn't do any true accuracy test and measure the groups, it shot well, and was on par with my norinco. though th sights were not dead on the x ring they made good groupins and need to be adjusted but that can come later on. next time we take it out.

all rds landed in the black of the standard 25 meter pistol target except for a few flyers that my dad shot while at 50yds from the bench.

while shooting from the prone unsupported, standing,and sitting i was able to nail the 5 zone of the e-type shilloutes at 50 and 100yds making perfect scores.

the barrel did get pretty warm but all rds continued to land where i wanted them to go. i was very pleased.

Head shots were easy to attain without much effort.

Trigger
There was something about the trigger that i didn't like i don't know what it was but it seemed that it went back with alot of force foward after the shot was made. i don't know it was kind of wierd. maybe a little trigger slap. but managable any way. trigger pull wasn't as smooth as my mak-90 but it worked just fine, and caused me no issues.

Stock
At first i was worried about the metal stock, i though it might get unpleasent to shoot after a while, a the metal stock might hurt the shooters face during recoil. but this wasn't an issue at all. it was no different that shooting a ak with a standard wood stock kit.

Reliability
Though there weren't many rds fired i can tell that this is gonna be a tuff reliable gun like the other ak's i have fired and own.
there wasn't a single malfunction of any type, and the gun never slowed down.

magazines used were 2-30rd mag and 1-20 rd mag that came with it, and they worked flawlessly, the 2-30rd mag even held the bolt open on the last rd. a feature that is neat but as soon as you drop the magazine the bolt goes foward, oh well, at least you will know when you are empty!

Conclusion
great fit and finish
fun to shoot
good accuracy
small, and compact
reliable
no malunctions
all in all i was pleased and even more pleased that my dad is getting more and more into the black rifles!:)

For the money the Yugo UF is the best deal out there.

How much did it set you back, if you don't mind my asking? I'm considering going that route versus the WASR 10 route.

I got one at a local store for $518. Really a nice gun. My son got one too, his had a bad gas piston, sent it back to dealer, they repaired & sent back with no problems. Quick turn around. Gun is fine now.

Possum, sounds like your Dad's Yugo has the dreaded Century FCG. You can swap it out for a Tapco or Red Star group if it is problematic. I also recall seeing a quick fix for smoothing out the existing group on one of the AK sites. Glad to hear it shoots well, I haven't shot mine yet.

Both my Yugo UF parts kits guns shoot damn good, especially for pitted barrels that had who know how many rds.
I hear CAI puts new barrels on the theirs, which is nice.

thanks, yeah we might have to do that, if it was mine i definetly would, but he only seems to shoot his ar and ak when i am in town so it probally won't get shot enough for him to even notice, but one day it will be mine, and a triigr will be to easy.

I would recommend the double-hook trigger group --the receiver is cut for
it and it's very reliable.
