Brutus' Description

As everyone knows good surplus has been getting harder and harder to find for quite some time.  These are really nice and actually exceeded our expectations. In fact the only reason I included the Very Good rating in the title is in case the worst one in the bunch falls to the level of very good. Certainly everything we have seen so far exceeds that level. 

This fine group of rifles came to us from the Slovenian Arsenals where they were evidently assigned after the dissolution of Yugoslavia. They are packed in master crates of 10 rifles each.  Most also include accessories such as a leather mag pouch, oiler, oiler pouch, sling, and tubular cleaning kit. 

Not all accessories are guaranteed with every rifle but we will package whatever is in each individual crate along with the rifle.... In other words, if the crate your rifle comes out of has cleaning kit's, we will pack a cleaning kit with your rifle. If there are slings in the crate, yours will get a sling, etc... etc. All we are guaranteeing is a rifle but the vast majority do have some if not all accessories. Also, while we firmly stand by the really nice condition of these rifles, we make no guarantees on the condition of the accessories. Some are nice, some are really nice, and others may be so-so. We are selling the rifle and throwing in whatever other accessories happen to be in that crate, as such you should simply consider the accessories as gravy. 

Each rifle is complete with blade type bayonet and cleaning rod. Nice wood stocks. Adjustable gas systems with grenade launcher, also, while we will not guarantee all matching serial #'s all of the dozens that we have examined so far have had all factory stamped matching serial #'s on any part that carries a serial  #. In addition to that, all of the serial #'s that we have seen so far have been factory stamped with no electro pencil of scratched in serial #'s and they also appear to all have stocks that are serial # matched to the receivers.  What I am trying to say is these rifles appear to be in their original factory issue condition from the butt stock to the barrel tip. 

Honestly I don't know if these rifles were arsenal refinished or just very nice rifles but they are without a doubt the finest group of military surplus rifles we have ever received. I encourage you to take a look at the attached pictures and video to see what you can expect. Some stocks will be very dry and seemingly without a varnish finish, while others appear to have a clear coat over the stain, but that is common to Yugo SKS's and apart from some slight storage marks all are very nice.  All metal surfaces have looked good with very little bluing wear. Expect some slight storage marks and an occasional dent or ding but overall this entire lot is in at least Very Good surplus condition and the hand selects should be closer to Excellent. / Like New.  

As stated before, as best we can tell these rifles were assigned to and or stayed in Slovenia after the dissolution of Yugoslavia and were held as back up weapons until being deemed as no longer needed and sold as surplus. They show very little if any actual use and are very nice by surplus standards.  Many look absolutely new. 

The vast majority of these are packed in a very consistent , very clean light coating of cosmoline. 

Add $20.00 for Hand Select. Hand Select will get you best of 10 cosmetically.

Dealers and Collectors.... We are also offering these fine rifles for sale in lots of 10 in their original wooden crates. Bear in mind that shipping for these will be by truck line and may be cost prohibitive but serious buyers can e-mail us for a freight quote. Please see our Yugo SKS Crate Page for full details.

Terrific Yugo SKS surplus military rifle!
Review by TC on 8/25/15
Quality
I have purchased 12 surplus military rifles over the years and this Yugo SKS is by far in the best condition. The wood stock looks brand new, the bluing is 100% and the rifling looks like a mirror. Nice touch with all the accessories that come with the $20 hand select option. Well worth the money. I like this SKS so much I'm going to purchase another one. Once again Classic Firearms delivers an outstanding product and level of customer service. Thanks guys and keep up the great work!

1978 Yugo
Review by Deadly in OKC on 9/4/15
Quality
Cleaned-off all the cosmoline and found that Zastava M59/66 is a 1978 Yugo, serial number O-575XXX, and had all matching numbers and in excellent condition. Bluing was 100 percent and the stock was like new with the same numbers as the rifle. I did see some additional stenciled numbers on the trigger assembly and on the underside of the bolt-firing pin assembly. When I removed the barrel from the stock to clean any cosmoline, I found the stenciled number was die-stamped into the barrel. So, this is how they obviously kept track of all the parts when they re-arsenal a new barrel onto the rifle. So, with the re-arsenal job that Zastava did, everthing is like new - - plus the trigger is smooth with very little resistance. When I checked the stock to see if there was any cosmoline to clean, the pad was clearly unremovable. So after cleaning the screws and re-installing them, I pushed on the center of the stock, and out popped a like new cleaning tube with accesssories. Get one of these rifles while you can, Thanks again, Classic !
SImply Outstanding Example of a Yugo SKS M59/66A1...
Review by Yaksquid on 9/4/15
Quality
Unboxed my Yugo from Classic's latest batch today, and I couldn't believe the shape this SKS was in. It looked like it went straight from re-furbishment into storage without being fired again. The bluing is near perfect, and the wood looks new. The pics say it all....and like I said, I just unboxed it today, and haven't even cleaned the (lite) cosmoline coating off yet. Thanks again, Classic, for making these fine rifles available to us!
Nice rifle but was expecting a little more for hand select.
Review by william4570 on 9/3/15
Quality
The rifle I received is nice but it has a couple issues. The rifle was re barreled and the serial #s were electro penciled on the barrel and also on the trigger group. The # was also written in pen in the cut out in the stock where you operate the safety. The floor plate on the inside is also penciled. The stock has some dings on the upper part of the comb where it looks like it bounced around in the shipping crate. It came with all the extras, the sling is a little rough almost worn in the spot where it loops through the holder and a little funky. I did get a sheet of paper documenting the gun, was hoping for a booklet (I know not every gun had one). It just seems like it could have been nicer compared to some of the other reviews and guns I've seen. I have bought 3 other guns and they have been great so maybe it was just a rough day at work for them. I will continue to buy from Classic Firearms they are a good company to do business with.
Excellent buy
Review by Bob on 9/2/15

Just got my SKS about a week ago. The dealer said it looked like it was brand new. Followed the video to clean off the cosmoline with mineral spirits and then took it to the range. What a sweet rifle. Shoots beautifully right out of the box. Shot a real tight group the second time out. Cosmetically it's not perfect but very very nice. This is my second rifle from Classic and I have to restrain myself every time they send me a sale e mail because I know it's all as represented and good.
Better than hoped for...
Review by frank on 9/2/15

I ordered two of these and one has arrived. I have taken it down and cleaned it but have yet to shoot it, but here is what I think. Excellent specimen. The rifle is pristine ~ looks new. All parts are milled and in excellent condition / bore is crisp. The stock is excellent - could not be better in any area. The rifle looks like it was manufactured yesterday. If I had the space and money I would order a crate - I don't think you will ever have another chance to purchase any that are better or even as good. If you want one, this is the batch to chose from. This rifle did not come with any accessories and that is my only disappointment, but they may be coming with the other rifle. We'll see :) If you want one, don't hesitate, this is the time and the batch to choose from. Happy shooting!

Very Good Surplus Rifle with a but
Review by Rocky on 8/31/15
Quality
Let's start strong. Everything metal on the rifle is stellar. I'd swear it never left the arsenal except the stock, with matching number, had obviously had some use. I paid the hand select fee and felt I got it in the stellar metal, though the only way the stock will please will be with a refinish. Electropenciling -consistent numbers- discretely almost everywhere makes me think this gun was an extensive rework and it may have a new barrel. Looked like it had a few test shots only and cleaned that way too. How satisfied was I? I finished cleaning, got on line and ordered another!
Outstanding Rifle
Review by Capt. Mike on 8/31/15
Quality
I recently received my M59/66 from Classic and I just want to say "Job Well Done". Classic sent me a very nice rifle, not quite as "near new" as some other people have stated but very good. Even with the extra hand select, this one had a few more blemishes on the wood than I would have liked but the metal was in great shape. It was covered in a light coat of cosmo but it cleaned up very easily. This was not the thick, black, dirty stuff that is usually found on surplus firearms, but clean, fresh-looking cosmoline. I did get all the accessories, as promised and I am very pleased with the rifle. My only regret is that it cost quite a bit more than the $69 that these were bringing just a few decades back. Times have changed. This was my first purchase from Classic but not my last. I will be back when they get something else that catches my eye. Thanks, Classic!
Excellent

Purchased two of the Yugos 5966 these were fabulous could not be more happier Amanda was and excellent customer service if you want a great deal on a fire arm go to Classic have not gotten a bad deal yet have purchased before with great svc.Hand select is the way to go if you are a picky person like me.
Outstanding
Review by Conrad on 8/29/15
Quality
I picked the hand-select option for my order of the Yugo SKS rifle. The only signs of any use of the rifle are some light handling marks on the stock, and some bluing missing from the magazine. I chalked the bluing on the magazine up to the way the weapon was stacked in the crate.
Overall this is the best SKS I have ever seen. I ordered one of the Chinese SKSs from Classic back when those were still available and this one is from a far better batch. The rubber butt pad was in excellent shape, and certainly helped with the recoil of the rifle. The grenade launcher on my SKS also had the holes drilled to act as a compensator, so long story short this SKS has little to no recoil.
Classic Firearms shipped within a few days and was pleasant to work with as usual. I received exactly what I was looking for, and would order from them any time. Thanks again for an excellent product.
Best SKS I ever had
Review by Keith on 8/29/15

Recieved rifle earlier this week , to my surprise when I opened the box " one word AWESOME ". I couldn't believe the condition of this SKS. When they say looks like new they weren't kidding. Not only did geta great rifle but I received everything that came with it, including the log book. Classic Arms you did it again, now I have to get a couple more so I can take my friends shooting. FYI the rifle I received will go into my personal collection of historical firearms the ones I'm ordering will be for shooting. Love Classic Arme. Thanks Keith
WOOOO!!! You ain't gonna believe the QUALITY @ this PRICE!!
Review by Nose Dive on 8/29/15

UPS Brown man just delivered this SKS to me. Well boys and girls....if you don't get one, get one (two!) now, you're gonna be real sorry. I asked for 'hand picked' for my boy's Welcome Home from the middle East and I am BLOWN AWAY at this rifle and kit! There is no blemish, scratch or bump on the stock! "PRISTINE" is the term to be used here. All numbers match and all paint on the grenade fore-site are fully white and no scratches anywhere. This 'hand picked' puppy ain't never, ever seen any duty in the field. Look at the website and you will see more just like this one. I bought a 'new' Nornico in '85 (before the ban) and I am just a pleased with this SKS at that one. Really, even more so as the China rifle was composed of China metal and this one is pure YUGO. And as a Yugo Mauser trader, I have about 20 or Yugo Mausers go through my hands every year. And, I 'know' they know how to preserve and store firearms. And, CLASSIC DONE GOOD. They picked up a bunch of these pieces packed by them and when you unwrap them, packed to the teeth in cosmoline, you will know what I know. "THEY" know how to do it! And the 'kit' that came with it is also pristine. Strap is clean and soft, pouches soft, clean and no scratches and cleaning drop is 'new'. The Manual, (belive it or not, matched to this rifle!) shows '74 issue date, with government stamps, armorer's signatures, and more stamps. Look at the 5 minute movie on the site. The fellas ARE NOT BLOWING 'SALES" SMOKE. These are a fantastic find, CHEAP, and very high quality. I gotta stop this note now to order one for me!! Nose Dive
Like new rifle, but poor boxing
Review by Tanker on 8/29/15
Quality
I received my Yugo SKS today and like everybody's been saying the rifle is like new or better. Matter fact its the assembling numbers on the stock and on a few other pieces so I do not believe it's gone through a rebuilding process my rifle was made in 1981. Not sure how they do the hand selects I did pay the extra $20 for the hand select but it looks like the box is already sealed up before they ship them on the outside of the box it had the serial number and then it said hand select so I think they separate them out and then box them up and have them ready for order. When an order comes in I think they just go back read the box and ship it.
but I couldn't swear by that so take it for what its worth the only thing I was disappointed with was not much packaging inside the box so the rifle shift and the bolt handle popped outside of the box and was drag on the ground some. I think it'll be okay so I'm not going to complain too much cuz I hate sending stuff back and waiting for it to come back anyway I still think it's a great rifle and I'm very happy still just the next time guys do a better job boxing
Great sks and great service

I received my sks yesterday and I was very pleased. I paid $20 for hand select and I couldn't have done better if I had picked it myself. It is brand new. Beautiful wood and blueing. I also like all the accesories that came with it. I also used the cosmoline removal video using mineral spirits and it worked great. Easy to do. I also received great service from the people at Classic Arms. Will buy from again.

Awesome as always. This is my first Yugo sks and its beautiful. Everything that came with the order was in very good condition, including the leather sling. All the parts of the gun are in excellent shape and from what I can tell it looks like my gun has had a new barrel installed before it was stored. The bore is absolutely pristine! Mirror bright with sharp rifling. You keep getting guns like this and I will keep buying them,can't wait to shoot it.
Excellent Quality / good price
Review by Steve on 8/26/15

Wonderful condition with very little wear.......appears to be almost new. All numbers match and the wood is in good condition . I own several SKS and the quality of this one is on par with ,or better than, the 1954 Russian that was my previous " best SKS" . Nice to buy a gun and have it become the best example of its type in the collection. Brilliant job Classic Fire arms (again). Gun and accessories met or exceeded what was advertised and the" Hand Select" is worth the added cost .

Excellent rifle
Review by Jafala on 8/24/15

I ordered one of the Yugo SKS's a week ago today and it was at my FFL a couple of days later. The firearm was just as described - in very good / excellent condition. I compare this to a Chinese SKS I ordered from another vendor about 4 months ago - which was accurately described as being in poor / fair condition. The Yugo I received has all matching numbers, most of the bluing is still there and the furniture only had a few minor (light) scratches and no dings.

The included accessories: double mag pouch, oiler pouch, twine snake and sling, were also in very good condition. I completed the cosmoline, varnish and original stain removal this past weekend and fired the rifle today. It looks good and functions well!. I plan on checking the Classic website regularly for other items of interest as I'm very pleased with this purchase.

    As everyone knows good surplus has been getting harder and harder to find for quite some time.  These are really nice and actually exceeded our expectations. In fact the only reason I included the Very Good rating in the title is in case the worst one in the bunch falls to the level of very good. Certainly everything we have seen so far exceeds that level. 

    This fine group of rifles came to us from the Slovenian Arsenals where they were evidently assigned after the dissolution of Yugoslavia. They are packed in master crates of 10 rifles each.  Most also include accessories such as a leather mag pouch, oiler, oiler pouch, sling, and tubular cleaning kit. 

    Not all accessories are guaranteed with every rifle but we will package whatever is in each individual crate along with the rifle.... In other words, if the crate your rifle comes out of has cleaning kit's, we will pack a cleaning kit with your rifle. If there are slings in the crate, yours will get a sling, etc... etc. All we are guaranteeing is a rifle but the vast majority do have some if not all accessories.

They show very little if any actual use and are very nice by surplus standards.  Many look absolutely new.

    1978 Yugo
    Review by Deadly in OKC on 9/4/15
    Quality
    Cleaned-off all the cosmoline and found that Zastava M59/66 is a 1978 Yugo, serial number O-575XXX, and had all matching numbers and in excellent condition. Bluing was 100 percent and the stock was like new with the same numbers as the rifle. I did see some additional stenciled numbers on the trigger assembly and on the underside of the bolt-firing pin assembly. When I removed the barrel from the stock to clean any cosmoline, I found the stenciled number was die-stamped into the barrel. So, this is how they obviously kept track of all the parts when they re-arsenal a new barrel onto the rifle. So, with the re-arsenal job that Zastava did, everthing is like new - - plus the trigger is smooth with very little resistance. When I checked the stock to see if there was any cosmoline to clean, the pad was clearly unremovable. So after cleaning the screws and re-installing them, I pushed on the center of the stock, and out popped a like new cleaning tube with accesssories. Get one of these rifles while you can, Thanks again, Classic !

    Let's start strong. Everything metal on the rifle is stellar. I'd swear it never left the arsenal except the stock, with matching number, had obviously had some use. I paid the hand select fee and felt I got it in the stellar metal, though the only way the stock will please will be with a refinish. Electropenciling -consistent numbers- discretely almost everywhere makes me think this gun was an extensive rework and it may have a new barrel. Looked like it had a few test shots only and cleaned that way too. How satisfied was I? I finished cleaning, got on line and ordered another!
    Outstanding Rifle

    I recently received my M59/66 from Classic and I just want to say "Job Well Done". Classic sent me a very nice rifle, not quite as "near new" as some other people have stated but very good. Even with the extra hand select, this one had a few more blemishes on the wood than I would have liked but the metal was in great shape. It was covered in a light coat of cosmo but it cleaned up very easily. This was not the thick, black, dirty stuff that is usually found on surplus firearms, but clean, fresh-looking cosmoline. I did get all the accessories, as promised and I am very pleased with the rifle. My only regret is that it cost quite a bit more than the $69 that these were bringing just a few decades back. Times have changed. This was my first purchase from Classic but not my last. I will be back when they get something else that catches my eye. Thanks, Classic!

    I picked the hand-select option for my order of the Yugo SKS rifle. The only signs of any use of the rifle are some light handling marks on the stock, and some bluing missing from the magazine. I chalked the bluing on the magazine up to the way the weapon was stacked in the crate.
    Overall this is the best SKS I have ever seen. I ordered one of the Chinese SKSs from Classic back when those were still available and this one is from a far better batch. The rubber butt pad was in excellent shape, and certainly helped with the recoil of the rifle. The grenade launcher on my SKS also had the holes drilled to act as a compensator, so long story short this SKS has little to no recoil.
    Classic Firearms shipped within a few days and was pleasant to work with as usual. I received exactly what I was looking for, and would order from them any time. Thanks again for an excellent product.
    Best SKS I ever had

    Recieved rifle earlier this week , to my surprise when I opened the box " one word AWESOME ". I couldn't believe the condition of this SKS. When they say looks like new they weren't kidding. Not only did geta great rifle but I received everything that came with it, including the log book. Classic Arms you did it again, now I have to get a couple more so I can take my friends shooting. FYI the rifle I received will go into my personal collection of historical firearms the ones I'm ordering will be for shooting. Love Classic Arme. Thanks Keith
    WOOOO!!! You ain't gonna believe the QUALITY @ this PRICE!!

    UPS Brown man just delivered this SKS to me. Well boys and girls....if you don't get one, get one (two!) now, you're gonna be real sorry. I asked for 'hand picked' for my boy's Welcome Home from the middle East and I am BLOWN AWAY at this rifle and kit! There is no blemish, scratch or bump on the stock! "PRISTINE" is the term to be used here. All numbers match and all paint on the grenade fore-site are fully white and no scratches anywhere. This 'hand picked' puppy ain't never, ever seen any duty in the field. Look at the website and you will see more just like this one. I bought a 'new' Nornico in '85 (before the ban) and I am just a pleased with this SKS at that one. Really, even more so as the China rifle was composed of China metal and this one is pure YUGO. And as a Yugo Mauser trader, I have about 20 or Yugo Mausers go through my hands every year. And, I 'know' they know how to preserve and store firearms. And, CLASSIC DONE GOOD. They picked up a bunch of these pieces packed by them and when you unwrap them, packed to the teeth in cosmoline, you will know what I know. "THEY" know how to do it! And the 'kit' that came with it is also pristine. Strap is clean and soft, pouches soft, clean and no scratches and cleaning drop is 'new'. The Manual, (belive it or not, matched to this rifle!) shows '74 issue date, with government stamps, armorer's signatures, and more stamps. Look at the 5 minute movie on the site. The fellas ARE NOT BLOWING 'SALES" SMOKE. These are a fantastic find, CHEAP, and very high quality. I gotta stop this note now to order one for me!! Nose Dive
    Like new rifle, but poor boxing
    Review by Tanker on 8/29/15

    I received my Yugo SKS today and like everybody's been saying the rifle is like new or better. Matter fact its the assembling numbers on the stock and on a few other pieces so I do not believe it's gone through a rebuilding process my rifle was made in 1981. Not sure how they do the hand selects I did pay the extra $20 for the hand select but it looks like the box is already sealed up before they ship them on the outside of the box it had the serial number and then it said hand select so I think they separate them out and then box them up and have them ready for order. When an order comes in I think they just go back read the box and ship it.
    but I couldn't swear by that so take it for what its worth the only thing I was disappointed with was not much packaging inside the box so the rifle shift and the bolt handle popped outside of the box and was drag on the ground some. I think it'll be okay so I'm not going to complain too much cuz I hate sending stuff back and waiting for it to come back anyway I still think it's a great rifle and I'm very happy still just the next time guys do a better job boxing
    Great sks and great service

    I received my sks yesterday and I was very pleased. I paid $20 for hand select and I couldn't have done better if I had picked it myself. It is brand new. Beautiful wood and blueing. I also like all the accesories that came with it. I also used the cosmoline removal video using mineral spirits and it worked great. Easy to do. I also received great service from the people at Classic Arms. Will buy from again.
    Beautiful gun

    Awesome as always. This is my first Yugo sks and its beautiful. Everything that came with the order was in very good condition, including the leather sling. All the parts of the gun are in excellent shape and from what I can tell it looks like my gun has had a new barrel installed before it was stored. The bore is absolutely pristine! Mirror bright with sharp rifling. You keep getting guns like this and I will keep buying them,can't wait to shoot it.
    Excellent Quality / good price

    Wonderful condition with very little wear.......appears to be almost new. All numbers match and the wood is in good condition . I own several SKS and the quality of this one is on par with ,or better than, the 1954 Russian that was my previous " best SKS" . Nice to buy a gun and have it become the best example of its type in the collection. Brilliant job Classic Fire arms (again). Gun and accessories met or exceeded what was advertised and the" Hand Select" is worth the added cost .
    Yugo 59/66, get them why you can!

    I ordered one of the Yugo SKS's a week ago today and it was at my FFL a couple of days later. The firearm was just as described - in very good / excellent condition. I compare this to a Chinese SKS I ordered from another vendor about 4 months ago - which was accurately described as being in poor / fair condition. The Yugo I received has all matching numbers, most of the bluing is still there and the furniture only had a few minor (light) scratches and no dings.

    The included accessories: double mag pouch, oiler pouch, twine snake and sling, were also in very good condition. I completed the cosmoline, varnish and original stain removal this past weekend and fired the rifle today. It looks good and functions well!. I plan on checking the Classic website regularly for other items of interest as I'm very pleased with this purchase.
