ГМ 583 Magazine
« on: April 05, 2024, 07:33:18 PM »
I recently purchased a 1949 SKS. From equal cleaning rod nubs and no rivet on the magazine, it shows that it is an early build. But I found one thing odd about this rifle, the magazine. The first picture in album shows what it should look like. The magazine was frankenpinned in an odd way that destroyed part on the serial number. It was then coated. I removed the crap and blued.

I was hoping to get an opinion from other members before I gave mine. I think that after collar was pressed on, that the machinist neglected to cut out the slot. And in later years they realized that the slot was not needed and that process was then eliminated. Oops, I changed my opinion. I just now blew up the picture and it looks like the machinist started his cut and for some reason stopped.
