Soviet-Sino Type 56
« on: September 23, 2021, 09:05:01 PM »
Figured i would post this here, after reading another thread apparently these are a bit of a rarity?
Dust cover appears to have a Russian serial number under the chinese one.
Bolt is not serialized and does not look like its ever had one.
Gas tube and piston are not serialized but look to have been at one point.

Looking at the receiver cover it appears to be a forced match imho. The fonts don't seem the same. Dunno.
When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns.

That is a rare one  thumb1 Thanks for sharing!

The receiver has definitely been scrubbed and stamped matching during refurbishment. That refurbishment also accounts for the absence of serial numbers on parts that normally would have been numbered. Looks like a later era Chinese cover that was scrubbed.

Very nice!  Maybe eight known examples out there.  I can see the shadows of the faint previous S/N on that receiver cover: 113566. That would make that cover come from a very late ghost or a 3 million /26\ gun.  The rest of the parts could be from anything really.  Definitely a Chinese rebuild. Does The stock have a number on it?  How about import stamps or other markings on it?

We'd love to see a full disassembly with lots of photos of the metal surfaces beneath the wood!
