I purchased a Yugo a while back, and loved shooting it. I did not like the feel of it though. So I had an idea. I cut the barrel to 17", recrowned and threaded it for a AK Tapco slant break. Replaced the stock with a ATI folder, which dropped in perfectly. I left the rear sights on and installed a UTG3 rail barrel mount. I turned the rails so that they were two on a side and one down. On the flat top side I drilled and tapped for a Marble shotgun sight, green flouescent. It shoulders great and is on target quickly with the flourescent sight, with the stock extended. Which was a surprise, it has an awkward look to it. . I also added a Tapco 30rd mag that has been flawless so far. It is folded here to fit in pic easier. I much better gun now IMO

Nice:) Would a closer look at the front end work be possible?

well, it looks to fit its function, so i can't say anything badly about it. I definitely like the creativity with what you did.

It was used for a ammo burner before, now its a more fun ammo burner, plus it sits behind my bedroom door for HD. With the handling improvement its adds a new dimension for its use.

I wish I would have bought more Yugos when they were $89. I would like to sport one out but I can't justify cutting up my only yugo. Nice mod though can't say I would do anything different if I did it myself.
