Thumbs up And,yet another score-Yugo SKS....

Straight up trade. One of my Tokarevs (Romanian TTC with the ATFingE mandated stupid safety almost on top of the slide stop) for a vg-excellent M59/66A1 with a pristine bore, crown ,GL gas cutoff valve). No trench art,but this was apparently used AND maintained...
Using accessories along with some nice light tan leather pouches.
My M57 and M92 needed the company, what with all the Bulgarians, East Germans, Poles,Czechs and Russians running about the arms room crewing up.

Good score. I like the SKS; it's a very under-rated gun imo. I remember in 1991 or '92 thinking how expensive they were getting, when the price "jumped" from $39 to $59...

Of course just like with the $159 Mak-90's back then, I sold all I had except one of each; should have bought (and kept) a dozen more.

Well,the Romanian Tokarev was kind of an easy acquisition (I scored it for $150:00 around 2013). I prefer my M57 and CZ52 due to the stupid safety on an otherwise good gun.
Considering the even the Post Trump current value in a Yugo SKS in this condition, I feel like I stole it.
Besides-I have a Tula 1950 laminate, a couple of Chicom SKS's,so this little Serb will fit right in.

Plead guilty to theft. A used 59/66 in VG condition is worth over twice the value of a Romanian Tokarev. Not knocking the Romanian. I have one myself. Good score, indeed.

I am keeping my M57,CZ52 and PPS43c, so absent another M57 or an unmolested TT33/TTC score I'm pretty good regarding 7.62x25... Yeah,I plead guilty to theft with a willing victim-the best kind.
