    Yugo SKS - Serbian Used

    Post by nkomo on Fri Nov 02, 2012 6:30 pm

    This is some carvings that were on a Yugoslavian SKS (manufactured 1968) that I appears to be Serbain used. The gun has been painted brown to reduce glare.

    I am wondering if anyone can help me translate the words that have been carved into the stock. Thanks!

    D'oh.... I accidentally misinterpreted the last letter as a D, completely forgetting the Cyrillic D doesn't look like the English D. Brain-fart, Arch! My apologies! lol!
