Offered for your consideration is one (1) Yugoslavian PAP 59/66 A1 SKS Carbine / 1977 Manufacture. The Yugoslavian PAP 59/66 A1 SKS, (NOTE: PAP means "Polu-automatska puška" (Semi-automatic rifle) and the rifle was nicknamed "Papovka". Otherwise this rifle is nearly identical to the Russian version), is a modified version of the original Yugoslavian 59 SKS. In 1966 the original design of the Model 59 was modified. A NATO approved 22m/m grenade launcher, flip up ladder grenade launching sight, gas cut off valve that is automatically engaged when the grenade ladder sight is raised, (the gas cut off valve has to be manually disengaged when the grenade launcher ladder sight id lowered and the rifle is returned to the normal cartridge firing mode), and flip up tritium night sights were added.
Also featured is a 11 1/2 inch under folding blade bayonet, milled and machined parts, and durable hardwood (Beech) stock and hand guard. The main reason that Yugoslavian SKS rifles, in fact all Yugoslavian small arms, seem "beefier", is because Yugoslavian cartridges are much "hotter" loads than other similar "East Bloc" ammo. This combined with the fact that Yugoslavia's manufacturing capacity was relatively limited, each weapon had to be more durable. The Yugoslavian PAP 59/66 A1 SKS Carbine has quality and craftsmanship unmatched by the other European and Asian models.
There is one significant difference between the Yugoslavian model and the Russian, Romanian, Albanian, Chinese, and many other SKS carbines manufactured in other countries. Yugoslavia does not have significant deposits of chromium thus the bores of their SKS carbines are not chrome lined. This is combination with the fact that Yugoslavian 7.62X39m/m ammunition is mildly corrosive has led to many of the Yugoslavian SKS carbines having either frosted, or pitted bores. The bore on this Yugoslavian PAP 59/66 SKS Carbine is bright, shiny and shows no signs of any form of corrosion. Serial numbers are matching on the receiver, bolt, bolt carrier, bolt cover, gas tube, gas piston, magazine, trigger guard, and stock. Yugoslavian 50/66 A1 SKS Carbines in the condition of this one are becoming increasingly more difficult to find. A
