Well, now I've gone and really done it this time. I bought a rifle, a Yugoslavian SKS M59/66 (alas, no grenade launcher for me).
Technically, all of the above is true. Practically...it's a pile of parts, waiting to be degreased and re-assembled. Oy. I think it'll be a couple of weeks before I'm able to get it finished up and try it out...but Christmas came a little early for me this year!
