Yugo Model 88A
« on: June 20, 2013, 01:57:34 AM »
So what is the deal with these Yugo 9mm's that I am seeing floating around the internet. The only domestic caliber pistol I have besides .22 is my .45. I would like to add another one to the stable and sell off one of my 9x18's but I am not sure about the quality of these new Yugo pistols. If anyone owns one could they comment on its quality?

What's the interchangability of TT parts like on those? Obviously the grips or mags wouldn't work, but what about barrel, firing pin, hammer group, etc?

Yea, hell, its a pretty good deal for an all steel 9mm. I just get nervous that if I drop that thing it will break the rear sight.

Can those use surplus 7.62 mags?

no on mags, why do you ask about parts?  do you plan on breaking it?  These things are battle tested and the Serbian guns are nearly indestructible.  But I'd imagine the hammer group and FP are identical.

Nah, just idly curious if parts would interchange with my Polish TTC.

I had one from the second or so batch that came in years ago. Mine says zastava serbia on the side and is a bit shorter than a standard tt33. Mags aren't any more difficult to find than a high power. My wife claimed mine since it is very thin and she likes the high sights. 

It operates as reliably as most full steel pistols. I've shot everything from brown bear to us made hollow points and it eats em fine. It does like to be clean between range outings, so don't treat it like an ak. Mine was imported by EAA.

On the beach on vacation at the moment but I will give a better review when I get back home tomorrow.

   No; the Yugos are a bit different from the Romanians and the Polish pistols; I do believe that most of the parts will interchange from the M-57 tokarevs though....

Looks good. You will notice that the safety is an actual safety and up on the slide. I've tried to see if those will misfire and I have yet to 'force' it to. The hammer moves back slightly when engaged leading me to believe that it is an actual hammer block safety.

A minor problem I have with my M70A, is that sometimes with the slide back, if you load the magazine with a smack,
the slide will ram forward, chambering a round.
