    I've been looking at the Yugo SKS's and thinking about getting one. But I'm not a collector and I don't have any Yugo grenades to launch so I wonder if there are any major problems with taking the thing off the end of the barrel. Will it destroy the accuracy (if any)? Will I have to turn and recrown the muzzle? Anybody else done this?

    The GL is threaded on and then pinned. You can knock the pin out and unscrew the GL, but it is very tight. If you don't mar the finish taking it off, you won't damage anything and can replace it at any time.

    The barrel is already crowned under the GL so you won't need to recrown. However, you will have the threads showing. the best thing to do would be find a muzzle brake of faux flash hider that will thread on instead. that will protect and cover the unsightly barrel threads.

    It's not like leaving it on there hurts anything, either. But if you're really intent on not having it, it might be easier to just get one of the 'CA legal' ones that already have the grenade launcher (and bayo, I think) removed.
