My latest SKS

Hello all, new here and wanted to show off my latest.
Nice to be aboard. Matching numbers, no bayonet on it when I got it.

One of the lesser common arsenals of the Chinese, [0221] if my eyes do me justice.
Excellent that you found a replacement bayonet, only issue is it's upside down.
That groove shouldn't dig into your fingers when you hold the rifle in a shooting stance with it stowed. The flat part should be what your palm meets.

Good looking rifle. Welcome aboard.

Welcome aboard.  Glad to have you here.  thumb1

Definitely a nice one there. Fit and finish of the [0221]ís is quite a bit better than most other rectangle arsenals out there.

Wow... That's a great looking SKS.  I find the non 26 rifles rather interesting.  :)

I'm sure she'll be a fine shooter. thumb1 thumb1

Very Nice, as said above, I think the non-/26\ guns are a neat find.  I have a couple,  Very clean rifle!  thumb1
