Yugoslavian M59/66 Simonov Rifle, One Only
Original Item: Toward the end of WW2, the Soviets introduced a rifle called the SKS 45. It was the culminating work of the great designer Simonov, who had created a long series of automatic and semiautomatic designs before. It was very handy, being more or less of carbine size, and it fired the new short 7.62x39 cartridge. Because of the smaller cartridge, it is quite comfortable to shoot, unlike any carbine firing older rifle-caliber cartridges such as the 7.62x54R.
The design turned out to be very popular and was manufactured in several Eastern Block countries as well as China. Some of these countries added their own ideas to the design, and the Yugoslavian M-59/66 was undoubtedly the most elaborate design and had superior standards of manufacture. It adds a sophisticated built-in grenade launcher to the basic rifle design. It is included in the Russian Rifle category since it was originally a Russian design.
The SKS series is especially enjoyable to shoot because of its convenient size and weight, lack of recoil, and plentiful availability of ammunition.
