Yugo M53 Parts Kit Analysis

Yugo M53 Parts Kit Analysis


One more thing. How does this kit look to you? 

I don’t know if I told you, but we did purchase a brand new 7.62 NATO MG 42 barrel.

I don’t know how easy it is to convert these things? But I’m under the impression it’s not hard.

Famous last words the customer says to his 07.



Matt H:

Yes you had mentioned the barrel which I’m pumped about!

The kit looks good besides the barrel which isn’t a problem in our case.

New sheet metal sides can be purchased to make a new receiver. Last time I checked the sides were around $400.

Converting is not bad so you’re good there.  Hell! There are step by step instructions online that cover everything.  I’m pretty sure there is even a setup that uses AR15 trigger groups.

I’ll look into the receiver options or sides over the next couple of days
