I't seems like people are paying significantly more for Yugo M53 kits on the secondary market. They needn't as the kits are still available from the distributor for $250+shipping.

I bought 2 kits last year from them. Nice kits. Barrels where dark but strong rifling. Your basic shooter barrel.

Ooof! The one I just received has the rustiest, most pitted barrel I have ever seen in many years of buying surplus machinegun barrels. I used up a perfectly good bore brush on it, and the rust still keeps coming. There are huge rust pits and the rifling is all rounded off. I'm going to test SOG's customer service and see if they will exchange this tent stake for a real barrel. Buyer Beware.

They gave me a Return Authorization number for the barrel (the rest of the parts kit was excellent+), and stated they would exchange it. So far so good.

I also bought a few back in March.........I had some issues like damaged parts, missing parts, and worn out parts. All I did was phone them.....they gave me an authorization return number.......and sent them back.

It wasnt even a week later and I received all the replacement parts in the mail. They have very good customer service there.

I can't seem to find any mention of any parts kit in SOG's website, are they out of stock?

They don't appear on the website unless you can get into the catalog with a dealer account. The kits still appear in their monthly flier, and I just purchased one a couple weeks ago, so they still had them as of that time. Call them up.
