    My understanding is that a Polish company imported a pile of these in 2018 and converted them to semi-auto (but they are still open-bolt!) and you can see some additional stamps on the receiver.

    The box with some of the tools, and the barrel change mitt. I wonder if the Yugo mitts are made from asbestos, as I've heard that the German mitts were so made.

    And, just like that, I now own a Yugoslav M53! (and a crap ton of cosmoline)

    I see lots of cosmoline in my future... so much cosmoline...

    I've already found a few German parts. The bipod is German, parts of the rear sights, and the elevation mechanism on the tripod is dated 1939, so I'm guessing the Yugoslavs reused it from an MG34 tripod.

    It's open bolt, but the trigger group has been modified to fire semi auto. It will be interesting to see how that was done, once I get it taken apart.

    A company in Wrocław imported a whole pile of them and modified them. They seem to be quite popular here in Poland. It's nice to have things that even American's can't have Poland seems to have an almost-anything goes policy. No FA, no suppressors (sort of, but not really). For now.

    Anyhow, look forward to all kinds of neat photos and info as I work through the thing.
