    I'm giddy as a school girl...picked it up last night after a long LONG wait. I'll try and post up pics and/or video later after I take it to the range.

    Bought a virgin parts kit locally (from a member here, maybe he'll see this) sent it to Vector Arms to be built. I think it was $500 and change for the built with receiver, and they had it to my class III dealer within a month. Took 6 weeks and 1 day for my ATF paperwork to come back. Overall time since parts kit purchase to assembled rifle in my possession - 6 months.

    Oh yeah, and it's a Yugo M92 with an 8.25" barrel. Taking it out later today to test her out. I hear they are quite the flamethrowers.

    Please do post a range report here - and I hope you get the chance to try it out in some low-light conditions! That 8" barrel ought to put out more flash and boom than a Mosin-Nagant M44!

    1. 5.45x39 or 7.62x39?
    2. Semi or full auto?
    3. I like the finish of this gun. If I would change on thing it would be the folding stock. It should go in the side fold rather than under fold. That way it would really resemble AKSU74 or as they call it Krinkov!

    It's a 7.62x39 and the underfolder stock is the "real deal" for the Yugo m92. You're thinking of a completely different model. Not full auto, I wish.

    It was built off a complete, never fired, Yugoslavian parts kit. It's about as close to the real thing as I could get (afford).

    By the way, Krinkov is the name of the flash hider, not the type of gun ;)
