    Just got a chinese and was reading on wikepedia about the sks as i know nothing about them but am learning. it says that serial numbers over 9,000,000 were have the spike bayo and under have the blade. Mine is under and has the spike. all numbers are matching including the stock what variation is this.

    Congrats on the new SKS, and just in case, WELCOME to G&G! Does your stock have the correct cut out for the spike bayo?

    I read on one of the SKS data sites that the serial number thing ONLY pertains to Factory 26 - the original producer of SKS carbines for the Chinese military. When considering the various other factories, many small provincial makers, anything goes! Oddities show up all the time.
    In any case, '79 is far too late for it to be a military gun - it was likely made for the commercial market, like Norincos.
