    Here it is! Long winded story about it and why I have not posted it until now, 6 days after I received it. I don't have time to tell now but I will tomorrow.

    Thanks. It looks good underneath too. All numbers matching to include all of the electro pencil numbers. Beautiful bright barrel as well.

    Oh, also forgot to mention something about it. It is crestless! I did a lot of research on it and it appears to be pretty rare to have a Yugo tok without a crest. I found an "expert" on these and he said in his years of documenting these Yugo's he has only heard of one other all numbers matching crestless one. He has seen a few others that were crestless but they were field replacement slides out of the armorers kit without matching serial numbers. Pretty cool I think.

    Edit: Anyone else here have a crestless Yugo M57?

    Nice looking pistol - hoping you have no issues with safety. I believe milsurp rds are hotter than current commercial rds, so I would pickup a pack or two of them just to have around.

    Thank you. I put 150 rounds through it yesterday. It functioned perfectly. No feed, ejection, or safety issues at all. I even did a rapid fire mag dump on it just to see if all was well, no issues.

    Boy does this thing fling out brass! I was standing in front of the pistol house and it was ejecting brass over the house, another 10 feet of concrete pad, and another 10 feet into the grass. Wow! I only found about half of the brass out there. Lol

    I was shooting both PPU and S&B FMJ. The S&B had noticeably more power, noise, and kick.

    All looks well - when things calm down here (if I don't forget) I need to look into those combat grips for mine.

    the S&B is teh cleanest & best commercial ammo that is out there.

    nice soft primer, non corrosive & a good bullet. if you watch around you can get it on sale real close to 9mm prices..
