Just bought me first sks. i haven't shot it yet, maybe later this week. i just had a few questions that i thought maybe people here could answer. i picked it out of a crate, all the other rifles had long serial #'s, but mine is a letter followed by four numbers, why? it also has the blade bayonet on it, not the spike one. and from what i can tell, it has a threaded barrel and most of the parts are milled not stamped. thanks in advance.

well, i looked at the above websites, and took apart the rifle and studied it carefully. Every indication is that it is a sino-soviet sks, probably from 1956. no stamped parts, the serial #, the rear sight, factory 26 stamp, threaded barrel, everything points toward it. good deal for around $90 eh? like a said there was a crate of them, the guy said "pick one out you like" i almost picked up another, then noticed this one had an odd serial #. i figured, why not?

Nice, excellent price too! Just bought a Yugo SKS from SOG a little while ago in excellent condition for $159. You definately didn't get ripped off.

Manitoba....Do you have substantial gun control issues there, as they appear to have in the eastern end of Canada? What with Winnie the Pooh living nearby and all.....(sorry).

I'm real glad you started this post. I'm sorta stuck on bolt actions these days, and I have not fired an automatic weapon for many years. Anyway, on the way home this evening, my truck went out of control and ended up in my favorite gun dealer's parking lot. I stumbled into the shop and found myself in front of the gun racks. His racks are looking awful thin these days. He did not explain why, but that condition left me gazing at a pair of SKS's. Of course, he handed one to me. I know nothing about the SKS, but gun grease is gun grease and I was a happy man. It looked like one of those Yugo's with the folding bayonet and grenade launcher apparatus. I have absolutely no need for an old semi-auto assault rifle.....but, I might be able to classify the purchase of one as an "Educational Experience" or such.

Let us know how you like yours. I might follow your lead.
Best Wishes.
