hello everyone.I am happy to be a part of your community and i am sure i will learn a lot.the other day i was cleaning my yugo 59/66 and noticed that the bolt carrier has side to side play and some up and down,now i have had this gun for at least 3 years and went out and shot it at least twice with no problems.I am sure it has been like that since i got it but i neglected to notice,it is a matching parts gun.any ideas?

It is common/normal. The bolt locks up when it chambers a round. Only when the bolt is closed on a round is their a significant tightening of the bolt control group. Just like a bolt action when cockling or dry chambering without a round. Loose.
As long as all parts are in good order and undamaged., good to go.

Thank you very much AKBLUE for the reply.Its odd that i did not notice this before,what realy got my attention is when i checked my other sks carbines and the bolt carriers where as tight as a drum.
