Romanian SKS Carbine 7.62X39 Made 1960 Type 56

The SKS carbine is one of the best, most reliable battle carbines ever designed. Chambered for the potent and accurate 7.62X39 cartridge it was used throughout the Soviet Union and all their client countries and has been shot at just about every free nationís troops around the world (including this writer). Thereís a host of aftermarket items available for it including high capacity detachable magazines, folding stocks, scope mounts, accessory rails and much more. It features a chrome plated bore, 10 round magazine, fully adjustable sights and hardwood stock. This example is of Romanian origin made in 1960 which was the last year they produced them. Production took place at the Uzina Mechanica Cugir factory which has been producing arms since 1799. The Romanian SKS or Type 56 has been imported far less than Russian, Chinese and Yugo carbines and all were carefully rearsonalized. All serial numbers match: receiver, bolt, bolt carrier, stock, magazine, cover, gas cylinder & trigger group with only the last three, non-critical items being electro penciled and is all correct right down to the markings on the wrist just behind the receiver. It retains 98-99% metal finish with some scratches on the receiver while the bore is absolutely perfect Ė bright and shiny with strong, sharp rifling and the stock is completely sound with some moderate wear and battering that can be expected on these arms. The bolt and bolt carrier are 100% bright and there is no primer ring or erosion on the bolt face which is smooth and shiny. Internally; it is clear that this rifle has not been fired since being rearsonalized. A very nice example of one of the scarcest SKSís in the US and with an abundance of very reasonably priced ammo available itís a great carbine for plinking fun or serious defense.
