Post by: newchi on January 12, 2019, 03:17:31 PM
Ok folks, the 1 gunshow of the year withing an easy drive was today and on a whim i picked this up, dont really know why other than the 3 characters mean something.  Havent been paying much attention to gun related things lately.
Everything that can take a photo needs recharging so heres the important one for now.

Nice man, one of the /546\ guns that have been popping up all over Canada.  Year 13 gun with a nice low S/N.  thumb1

Thanks everyone, like i said it was spur of the moment as it was the cheapest and nicest of the chinese i had seen and i was 3/4 of the way through the tables already.  $400 91/30s were not for me :o
Oh and i forgot that they all have the 3 characters on the side :))

The three characters mean “Type 56”. The Chinese read and write right-to-left, but numbers are always written left to right in any language I’m aware of (mathematics follows universal rules, unlike languages). Therefore, from left-to-right, the characters are: 5 6 Type.

Heck yeah, I don't discriminate based on nationality!  Make sure you enter the "Not a US import" in "the no import stamp" question.   thumb1
