    Even Trade ?

    I traded even, a unfired, unissued Norinco type 56 SKS for a unfired Yugo SKS / with grenade launcher. I like the fit and finish of the Yugo better. Did I do O.K. ?

    BTW, for those that buy unissued military rifles. I was washing the cosmoline off the Yugo and found the firing pin was stuck solid in the extended position. Probably would have gone full auto, slam fire if not cleaned.

    Well as a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. I have the knowledge and training to use such weapons. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to. And high penetration bullets have not been outlawed. You can buy them at Walmart. They are called M855 penetrator green tips. Military issue. They are for punching paper not animals. And what ever else might come along. Remember when you need help cops are only minutes away. Those who hammer their guns in plows will soon plow those who didn’t. Personally if it’s not fully automatic or high explosive I don’t give a hoot about what anyone owns. Now if you use in a manner to cause harm to others, well then you deserve what ever happens to you. We can’t nanny everyone and everything. That’s wrong with the world today there are no consequences for ones actions anymore. Spoons don’t make people fat and pencils don’t misspell words.

    Srry about that Jhjimbo , I was directing towards Buckshotoo, there's a big difference in full auto or the old bolt in a box. To many Idiots running around claiming 2nd amendment rights entitles anything goes, It's a new world people , mass shootings have changed the perspective of the general public, and if you don,t learn how to bend with the wind then you will break with the vote. Pretty simple but the old west is dead.

    I could care less where your thumb points Jhjimbo, I see no reason for such weapons to be considered sporting rifles, if anything goes in your way of thinking why was the high penetration bullets outlawed? Yes , there are those that have attained the knowledge and experience to use these weapons , but in today's world there are to many that make it only feasible for law enforcement. Why portray grenade launchers as nothing much more than toys? I,m firm in the right to bear arms and self defense. These are not sporting weapons or meant for defense.

Of course the next step will be to determine the legal limit in “miles” that the grenade can be launched and how much killing power will be allowed. After all, there must be enough of the dead game found in order to be useful, such as table fare. Or will that no longer be the main purpose of said sport ?
    No Problem. If it was OH, I would have thought differently. These things are actually quite fun to shoot with the 22mm dummy grenade.

    Bucky, you are the only one who has brought that into question. I guess that maybe you are the only one who has recognized my sometimes off the wall thoughts on some matters. Thanks for your delicate way of putting it !!

    If you're going to do battle with Cosmoline, I suggest you go buy yourself an ultrasonic part cleaner. Some of the best money I've ever spent.

    I'm not able to help you as much on that one Jimbo. I'm thinking no, the GL would be still trying to launch the 22mm Grenade to push it as far as it could. I mean when you put the grenade sight up it blocks the gas system trying to push as much gas into launching as possible.
    My thoughts would be that barrel climb and noise for this rifle would already be pretty low, but given the design putting a brake / flash hider would be pretty simple.

    BHR, I'm going to hope that was mostly tongue in cheek.

    I guess the Yugo would be more interesting to a collector since there were probably more Norinco's made.
    The fit and finish is better on the Yugo, plus I have more SKS's.

    I wonder if the grenade launcher serves as a brake/ flash hider on it's own.

    Though not quite as verbally talented, I'll have to agree with buckshott00.

    As gun owners, if we don't start banding together into a cohesive group, our cause will be lost.
    Even on here and on F&S, you will find "hunters" scoffing at those of use who hunt with MSR, AR15 or black rifles.
    I've even seen bloggers who claimed to be dedicated hunters who were willing to give up bump stocks and even AR platform rifles in hopes of satisfying the antigun crowd.
    The antigunners have one single objective, a complete and total gun ban.
    Give them bumps stocks or AR's, then they'll want semi auto rifles, shotguns and pistols.
    By the time they complete their goal, you'll have to deer hunt with an atl-atl... and you'll have to keep that hidden from authorities!

    Nah, you can get the parade blanks pretty easily, if you buy the ready made replica grenades you should get 40-50yds. I looked into it after doing it at a buddy's place. This guy has it figured out
