General SKS Discussion / Re: 6 digit, no arsenal stamp

Yup,

Back n 2012 when the first boatload of CAI Sino-Banians went for sale, Gunboards and SKSBoards were booming with posts of the 'new' imports.  It was quite fun.

As for finding deals today.  You have to be patient and persistent jus like you are currently doing.  Sounds like you are well on your way to finding a diamond in the rough.  thumb1

Not real carbon fiber, the stock was made with 14+ layers of 1/4" (3 ply) plywood glued & clamped till dry. The different layers were pre-cut to follow the shape of the receiver/barrel etc. That way it saved carving out that much from a solid wood blank. After finishing the final shape it was given it's look with the Hydrodip paint film process & sealed with polyurethane. The bottom of the pistol grip has a notched area that clears the magazine when installed or removed. It works smoothly, just push the release & rotate the mag forward like normal (to remove).

Even as a purist, I have to admit that's cool looking. Certainly shows a lot of craftsmanship. Did you actually make it out of carbon fiber? Mag changes look like they're a bit trickier than on the original.

The entire rifle. All metal, trigger group, mag, buttplate, bolt, carrier & cover are in tip top condition. Figured its in the ghost category.

Chinese SKS (Military) / Re: Type 56s in
« Last post by Chevy Boy on Today at 09:22:41 AM »
Whew! $500 is bout what my local gun store will ask for any Chinese in excellent condition. $300-$400 is the normal range for a well-used surplus Chinese like the ones those boys at Palmetto have pictures of.

If they really have thousands of those things in stock, youd think they could afford to be a little more generous on the price tag...

I guess everything is more expensive on the computer.
