Looks good! I think the best part is that you kept the wood stock.
For some reason I like the orig stock better then the plastic ones.

yeah i had a tapco on it but it just felt front heavy

the yugo stock just feels great in my hands
feels really balanced

Interesting, (to me at least) how painting the stock black,and adding a 20 rd mag, changed its "persona". Wonder what a Winc. 94 would look like black?

Ooops, and ...yes I like it, too!

I was thinking the exact same thing...if you squint it looks suspiciously like an M1A...

almost the same ; flash hider , bayonet lug/front sight, detachable mag,barrel cover,...interesting catch, guys.

Look at the third photo closer, it has a OEM Yugo SKS next to it.

Nicely done, good sir.

whats SKS rescue Storm?

Just kidding around. It is a reference to my recent thread about un-Bubba'ing an SKS. All kidding aside, I'm for folks doing what makes them happy and even if it isn't my thing I can appreciate a job well done and a good result.

It's funny, I've been shooting the SKS on and off for the better part of 25 years, and way back then I would have killed to have a detachable mag and all of the toys for one that we have today. But, now that we have all of that, I find that I prefer the rifle in its original configuration, and have spent extra money to achieve that. Go figure.

And yes, the Yugo is nose heavy to begin with. When I did the TAPCO thing with my Yugo I made matters worse by adding a tri-rail handguard that threw the gun way, way off balance. Had I taken off that handguard I still might have that rifle today. I'm not sure how the TAPCO affected the balance so the OP's rifle with the original painted stock my be much better than mine was.

I have a Yugo M59 (no launcher/gas cut-off switch), and didn't know how it compares with other Yugos or the Russians which it is more like. Mag conversions? Collectibility? It has matching #'s and some stock markings (name, three dots). Thanks!

I like it, and I rarely see an SKS I like. Doesn't look cluttered, looks utilitarian. Nice job.

Where did you find the 3 sided rail and how is it attached to the gun. I have a handgun scope mounted on my SKS in front of the rear sight, scout rifle style, but it is mounted to the gas tube cover and can shift sightly. I like the three rail for being able to add other accessories such as a weapon light or laser if the situation warrants it.

Oh, I really like the look with the black wood stock and blackened bolt against the parkerized finish. I wish my sons had seen this before they bubbaized mine.


June 12, 2009, 04:17 PM
I have to agree. Looks very special ops.
Never thought of painting the wood, came out great.
I love the s.k.s. and this one looks like it wants to go out at night.

It looks great. Keep a foregrip off of that rail.
