Ok, before I start, I came to this forum because for the most part Ak's, AKM's and SKS' seem to run hand in hand. Now with my issue. I purchased a Yugo 59/66 from a friend as a favor. When he got it he payed a very low price for it and for a reason. It was originally equipped with the grenade launcher and the original owner was not to bright apparently. Instead of using a punch, driving out the pis and removing it that way he used a grinder, cut-off wheel or something and chopped of a fair portion of the barrel. Enough to make the overall length illegal. My friend brought it to me. I recut and threaded .5" of the barrel to a total length of 14.5 inches (still illegal, I know) but I added a 3" muzzel brake and a tack weld making the overall length 17" for the barrel. I just want to make sure that this is all correct and I should have no legal issues. Also between the break and gas block I have about 1.125 inches of exposed barrel does anyone know of a rail system that I can add so as to give it a front sight? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
