Was wondering about the "penciled" number series on various parts of my rifle. Although serial number (M512897) is definitely stamped, not electro stenciled, on all parts except piston, most parts show 26298 stenciled on them. Bolt carrier has the 512887 stamped onto it. Piston has what looks like "7K" stenciled on it.

Stock has the M serial number deeply stamped into it. Can't see any sign of scrubbing but the stock looks new.

Finally removed the stock and saw barrel has the 26298 stamped on it. So, were these parts replaced at factory refurb?

Here are more pictures. Stock was "refinished" by previous owner. Here is that screw that was requested.

I have seen a number of restocked yet otherwise as issued yugos. Some are passed off as totally unissued. They are not. Your stock at the rubber butt shows lines from a refinishing belt sander on the rubber. AS issued it would be smooth. Whether the prior owner did it or it was rebuilt with only the stock refinished does not matter as it is no longer an as issued stock. Still the rest of the gun looks as issued.
BTW the rear sight underneath, should also have the assembly number in the white if it is as issued. Nice gun which should be appreciated for its many as issued qualities. Enjoy.
BTW the screw to look at is the eighth of an inch screw below the hand guard. When as issued it is recessed about an eighth of an inch and after refurbishment, it is flush with the wood. FYI.
Yes, assembly number in the white appears under rear sight.

That screw is slightly recessed, close to flush, but not 1/8th inch.

Thank you for the detailed information above. Really appreciate it. Will enjoy it--especially when I can find a front sight adjustment tool that works on the YUGO.
