    Has anybody tested what kind of groups they get from a rested SKS at a hundred yards: First, without the folding bayonet attached. Then, with the bayonet attached?
    Did you see much difference in point of impact? Any pattern to it?

    I have a yugo sks, at 100 yards the gun shoots about 2 moa with WOLF 7.62 ammo. I figured this is not to bad for an old military piece. The difference with the bayonet was about zero. Some of the shots I took, with and with out the bayonet fell out of the grouping but i think it has to do with the ammo choice...wolf being ok; but not the best ammo maker out there. So basiclly, don't worry, almost no difference with the bayonet or not.

    I have both an early Norinco and a 1952 Tula and two to three MOA at a hundred shooting surplus ammo is about as good as it gets for me. I have noticed no real difference between having the bayonet attached or not.

    Guru, I think 2 moa sounds excellent for a yugo or any other sks. I have yet to bench test mine.

    I have been flamed before as an idiot for claiming MOA with my SKS. The trick is not to use nasty wolf ammo. Use handloads or high end commercial ammo (Lupua) and I bet your group will shrink from 2 MOA to MOA.

    My Yugo SKS shoots the same no matter the position of the bayonet. It doies get 2moa with wolf ammo also- until the barrel gets hot, then it starts stringing vertically- nothing that isn't expected.

    I am able to get 3-4 moa with my yugo at 100 yards. I have not tried taking the bayonet off, but it shoots the same with the bayonet extended as it does folded, if that is any help.

    The only thing that should change is not the tightness of the group but the point of impact of that said group.

    Bayo folded vs extended doesn't make any difference on my Yugo 59/66 SKS.

    Now, on my M-44 Mosin-Nagant, about 4" shift in windage, but no appreciable group size change.
