The Receiver is milled, the Trigger Assembly is Milled, otherwise they'd be stamped sheetmetal.

MOST if not all Yugo's I've seen are milled.

you probably own a stamped receiver. Meaning your gun started off as a flat piece of sheet metal until it was stamped into the shape of your receiver, bent over a jig and then welded into the shape of the receiver. A milled receiver starts off as a solid block of billet steel and it's machined out into a receiver. Milled receivers are heavier, more solid, and generally of higher quality than stamped receivers - and usually only early runs of a particular weapon are milled, because it takes substantially more material, time, and accuracy to produce them. Stamped weapons are extremely cheap and easy to mass produce, but usually suffer adverse effects because of this - such as accuracy, reliability, etc. The comparison of the AK-47 (stamped) to the AR-15 (milled) is a good example - both would be the best examples of each machining process.

But, it's an SKS. Who gives a shit? Whether or not it's stamped, milled, or whatever - it's still mildly accurate and overall reliable in any form.
