    Yugoslavian SKS Receiver Cover ID Help

    The Yugoslavian SKS that I recently bought had a Leapers UTG Receiver Cover made to mount a scope. Ugly Ugly in my book and cheaply made. So I have been looking for a Yugoicon Receiver Cover to replace it.

    I found one, I think, The owner had it listed a Yugo cover and in comparing it to two Chinese and my Russianicon SKS covers, it definitely not a Chinese and has machining marks that more closely match my Russan.

    From what I have learned, Yugos lack markings. The one I bought has a few electro-pencil markings. The marking seems to have the same format as what I have found on the other parts of my Yugo SKS.

    I'm hoping that someone with Yugo SKS experience recognizes these markings.



    Thanks in advance! Bill

    That is assuredly a Yugoslavian SKS receiver cover. The "batch" number on the rear face is unique to the Zastava production system.

    What martin08 said.

    Also, the [BK] stamp is a Yugoicon military stamping. Seen on many Yugo small arms.

    Martin and Boris, thank you for the help and for confirming that I did get the correct cover for my Yugo SKS. I really appreciate the help and information.
