Sks owner from Italy
« on: September 01, 2017, 06:06:02 PM »
Hi everybody!
I'm Fabio, I live in northern Italy and I'm a proud owner of two SKSs.
First one I've bought was a 1953 Russian Tula-made, all-matching and brand new; the last one I purchased is an almost unique (at least here in Europe), 1978 Albanian Tipi 56-1, used and abused, all matching except from gas tube (which is a Chinese one) and trigger group (chinese too)... its buttplate is bent and it's all covered in scratches and dents... probably it saw a lot of action!

I'll post a few photos of the Albanian one in its section, maybe someone can also help me to find its missing accessories :))

Other than SKSs, I also own some other Combloc/Chicom guns as well as civilian ones: a 1939 Tula Mosin-Nagant 91/30, a Norinco 1897 Trench-gun replica, a Norinco Type 84s AK and a Romanian G AKM, a Beretta 35 and a double-barrel shotgun (which I had from my Grandad) and a 9mm Glock 17.

I hope to learn a lot from this forum!!

Greetings from Italy!

Fabio

Fabio, welcome to the boards. We are glad to have you!  You definitely have some nice looking SKSs there. Do you have a favorite among all your firearms?

Welcome to the Files!  Great pic and love the sks's.  What kind of wood is that in the background?

But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,

   Welcome to the Files, Fabio!  thumb1

   Looking forward to pics and info about your collection! I'll wait to ask about your Albanian SKS until whenever you post it up in the Alby section. And, also looking forward to hearing about and seeing the Chinese Type 84S! Always nice to see the Chinese AK variants!

well, the Russian SKS has been the first firearm I've bought all by myself, and gives me satisfactions every time I take it to the range... so I think it's my favorite one  ;)

I'll post something about the alby as soon as possible, for now I can give you a link to an article I wrote for an italian milsurp guns website, it's written in italian but images are international haha

I'll also upload some photo of my 84s and of my Romy G in the AK section.
On the chinese I've replaced all wooden parts with Arsenal black polymer furniture and I've added an ak74-ish muzzlebrake, recently I've also added a side-rail with belarusian mount and a chinese red dot.
