Chinese SKS Carbine 7.62X39 1963 Vietnam Trophy

The SKS carbine (Type 56) 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, bull pup stocks, flash hiders, scope mounts, accessory rails and much more. It features a chromed bore, 20Ē barrel, 10 round magazine, fully adjustable sights and hardwood stock. This example was made in 1963 in the Jianshe Arsenal (AKA factory 26) as evidenced by its serial number (7054519) and has no import marks of any kind. That, and the fact that it obviously is not in new or rearsonalized condition indicates a very high probability of it being a Viet Nam bring back. All parts are matching serial numbers and correct for the date of manufacture (screwed barrel with long bushing, carrier lightning cut, machined trigger group, dull finished blade bayonet). It retains about 70% metal finish with some scattered light pitting (mostly at the stock line) and fading to brown patina while the bright bolt has turned to a fairly uniform brown patina. The bore is perfectly smooth and shiny with strong, sharp rifling and the stocks are sound with a thin stable crack in the handguard and both it and the stock have been sanded a fair bit. The recoil bolt nut is a replacement. The sling is authentic Chinese but obviously a later replacement obtained in the states. The wear is typical of a gun thatís gone to war and the stock sanding is in keeping with what guys did when they got these home. The stories of its serial owners can only be imagined. A really cool representative piece of history from an intense period of American military history. And, with an abundance of very reasonably priced ammo available itís a great carbine for plinking fun or serious defense.
