hey guys, just got a new toy.

A never issues, Model 59 Yugoslavian SKS battle rifle.

Anyway this model of the SKS was made with an integral grenade launcher that is designed for NATO standard 22MM rifle grenades.

I figure that real Rifle grenades are at a minimum Class III weapons, if not banned completely. But I wonder about inert ones that don't explode.

Does anybody have any idea of they are available.

There is nothing legally keeping you from owning an INERT grenade. The trick would be finding it. I have seen them for M-1 Garands and M-14s but never for an SKS. Also Inert hand grenades are pretty easy to find anyplace that sells military surplus crap. I am sure they exist however for training purposes and whatnot.

Do you say a prayer that it won't blow up, randomly go full auto or jam solid before you fire that death trap?

I am on the way to a class so try this link, i think they sell the inert M-1 and hand grenades

Didn't really see what I was looking for there,

I wonder if they make ones that just whistle, there are shotgun rounds that do that.

Thinking bear protection here.

I doubt you will get anything that will actually fire. I know someone that had an M-16 with the grenade launcher under the barrel. to get grenades that would actually fire (just the chalk training rounds) involved a class III liscense and reporting every so often how many were fired. It is even more paper hoops to go through to get the ones that really go boom.

They do make shotgun barrels that look like the grenade launcher to sling under the barrel of AR-15/M-16s. They are kind of a neat idea but I found them to be rather pricey and hard to find. But yet again we come back to the fact you are dealing with an SKS..

What on earth possessed you to get an SKS? It was even too scary for eastern bloc standards after a few years of service. Just save up more money and get something that is safer to shoot and actually somewhat accurate.

Actually, you can get a 37mm flare launcher that is styled on the M-203 grenade launcher. No paperwork needed, and since it is a flare gun, they can be ordered though the mail.

That will set you back about 175 bucks, plus the AR to mount it under.

Don't knock the SKS, I have a Chinese one allready, Both are milled and the Chinese one for sure has the screw in rather then the pinned in barrel. The trick to buying an SKS is getting one that was made for military use by the country of origin, not for commerical sale.

I have never had a jam with an SKS, something that I can't say for my uncles Mini-14 that seized up on him, when a black bear was charging down on him on a snowmobile.

Yes they are.

Been working on getting an example of everybody's bolt action rifle from WWII.

I prefer to save my pennies and go buy really cool shit that is god-awfully expensive and surprisingly keeps gaining value. Guns are strangely enough a good investment if you buy good ones. Not that I am ever planning on selling my children.

Startvalve - you can buy a piece of crap that's old and then sell it for a million... Guns are about history, not how many brains you can shoot... Well, for collecting anyway.

Well I am not able to afford a collection of Weatherby's or Pre-64 winchesters at this point.

The low end WWII stuff is about in my ball park.

Too bad I missed out on the Finnish Mosin-Nagants and the Swedish Mausers.

But still, it is fun considering the historical references.

FYI. The SKS wasn't bought to be a collectors item.

I need to get a C&R license so that I can order direct from the wholesalers.

guns are also about fun. I find it much more fun to go out blasting with whatever automatic toy I have aquired than a bolt action whatever. I am on a quest for a reasonable M-1 Garand if you wanna talk about history.

That is on my list.

I need to go and get on the DCMP list to get one of those that they are giving away.

l-188 if you are looking into weapons like the SKS, try getting your hands on a SVT-40, i have heard alot of good about it from people who own one.

Seen a few,

Fires the same round as the Mosin Nagant.

It is a contemporary of the Gerand, a semi-auto firing a full sized cartridge. It is an improvement on the older SVT-38 design but still has some of the flaws that plauged semi-autos designed for the power of a large round.

Funny thing is that Tokeriev won the right to build the SVT from Stalin whom he was closer to. The design that lost was the SKS. When the SVT-38 failed to live up to expectations Stalin called Simonov in to ball him out, since he was in charge of armaments. Simonov protested saying that he had pointed out the SVT's weaknesses and proporting his own SKS design.

Stalin said Simonov should have worked harder to convince him otherwise.

This is of course in Stalin's russia where arguing with the Boss could get you a one way ticket to Siberia.
