    After months of waiting for J&G to get these back in stock they finally arrived and I wasted no time getting down there a snatching one up. The gentleman behind the counter said they received about 50 in stock and by the time I got there a few days later they were already down to 35. So I didn't hesitate to for a second, I picked out a nice one and walked out with that mission accomplished feeling. Can't wait to shoot it this weekend!

    Here are some pics of it....

    Congrats! I hope you like yours as much as I like mine!

    My only advice: change out the pistol grip. Even the standard (http://www.copesdist.com/images/grip1.jpg) yugo grip feels better, though I prefer the SAW style one. There's something about that stock one that just gets annoying after a while.

    Pretty much other than that, I think it's a nice, comfortable rifle.
    Congrats again, and safe shootin'!

    Yes the pistol grip needs to go I find it annoying already and I've only had the gun a few days. I plan on getting the US made Yugo version that's pictured in your post, I like the traditional look.

    I bought one at J&G Sales yesterday, too.

    I haven't shot it yet, but I already love the feel of it, except for the pistol grip, which I noticed as well. Aren't wood grips correct for the Yugo also?

    I notice yours doesn't have a cleaning rod either.

    I like it so much, I'd be tempted to pick up an underfolder also, if they still came with wood handguards.

    They are $429. You better hurry, they're blowing out there.
