    first and foremost, thanks a lot to the guys who have been replying to my sks posts. i bought my very first rifle (besides my old single shot .22) and couldnt be happier or more well informed. thanks guys, my yugo is doing great.

    so one of the biggest benefits of owning an sks is the million accessories out there for them, and i wanted to make a post where maybe some new sks owners could get some good websites and advice.

    :confused: my question is about this product here, http://www.rifletech.com/yugobrake39-a.htm

    with the description they give, i want to buy one (despite the fact it costs as much as my yugo). what do you guys think, look like a good deal? this is the only website i found it on. i asked the company some questions, and installation is straightforward, no drilling or such and it keeps overall length just about the same.

    i look forward to your answers, and thanks again!

    Would be nice if it was true but sounds like the biggest bunch of bull I heard in a while.

    If you have any money left over, I have some oceanfront property here in Utah you may be interested in.

    $125 for that? I thought unobtanium cost more than that.

    I wouldn't pay $0.99 for it- looks like it's full of BS.

    I have said it before, and I will keep saying it: the SKS is great fun and a superb general purpose carbine. However, it is not worth spending lots of money in order to modify the gun. It isn't capable of tremendous accuracy, and even if it were, "match quality" 7.62x39 doesn't exist.

    I'd spend the money on another gun; maybe hunt up a used shotgun for clay games.

    You may want to check a SKS site about this. The Yugo's can be imported because they fall under the C&R class. Putting this on may be illegal.

    The biggest benefit of an SKS is the fact that it costs a hundred bucks and does not benefit greatly from any accessory. Ask yourself, "Are any of the things this product claims to reduce or elimanate currently a problem with my rifle? If you answer yes, and fully realize that the $125 product MIGHT add $5 of value to your rifle, then by all means give it a go. If you answer no to that question(as you should), skip it.
