My name is Craig. I'm currently living in California and have just purchased some firearms from an estate sale, one of which is my first SKS. It's a Norinco 24 mil S/N. it's beeing stored in NV for many years and it is super clean and as far as I can tell may have never been fired or if so very little. I am more and more fasinated by older mil-surp guns (I also aquired an M1 Carbine, an Romanian M44, a Tula 91/30 and a Mak-90 Sporter). I find myself easliy getting lost down the rabbit hole of learning about these old rifles. I have many questions about my new rifle and will post them in an area more suited to the specifics. For now I just wanted intoduce myself. I've been lurking for the last several weeks looking at the marking and learning what I can before I start asking a million questions, LOL.
