Neat,
In theory, if its not matching its not matching but personally i wouldn't care about the  gas tube and piston, but we will have to see what the more experty folks here say

Very nice Romy!   I wouldn't care about the tube and piston..... To me its like a trigger spring, not exactly meant to match in the first place.

I just looked under the rear sight and found yet another matching # but it is too faint to photograph.

Matching is used so often, when it's not, that the redundant term "all matching" has emerged for what used to be sufficiently described as matching  rofl

Terms that are seen in marketing or describing a firearm these days: stamped numbers matching (numbers that are applied with an electro-pencil may not match), visible numbers matching (one or more of: gas tube, gas piston, bolt may not match), metal matching (mis-matched, or non-original and/or unnumbered stock), forced-matching (numbers applied after scrubbing, or strike-through, or over-stamped during refurbishment).

Regardless, it's a nice Romanian thumb1 These are often the best value for the dollar in the current SKS market. Enjoy! Do you have full rifle pics and a pic of the left side of the buttstock?

For a Romanian SKS, I would consider it all matching.  100% ALL matching Romy's are extremely hard to come by.

Sweet Romy, by the way.

Nice get!

I agree with P32.  With Romys, the stock is usually the toughest number to match. If the left side of the buttstock has the original S/N, you've got a decent collectible there even with a mismatched gas tube/piston. If the stock is a restamped, mismatching, or blank replacement, you've got a nice shooter or a placeholder in your collection until a nicer one comes along (believe me, more will come.  It's inevitable!)  thumb1

P32 forgot to mention the most common term used about matching which is " everything matches except " Or All matching Except" ha ha ha ha ha

Very nice Romanian. These days if you have a Romanian SkS ,,,, Hang on to it.

You did really good and if the stock matches the other parts shown, You did exceptionally well ! The piston can be replaced with a non numbed and same with the gastube if you can find one or trade  clap1
Don't worry, I won't tell anybody, Ill just ask them if they heard about it.
