Roger that, keep us posted. If you find any pics online that are identical or close, linking to those would be good too, explaining any differences.

This is a pic I found appears to be the same as mine


Mine has a diffrent rear sight the this

It is more like an SKS in the way it used an "ramp" type rear sight that has adjustment up to 20 I think. Is this a god action? or is it junk?? I would love to "Sporterize it so the wifey can use it.
