Turned out good looking. Is it very heavy? PAX

Pax, definitely heavier than the Ram-line you have but honestly I haven't weighed it.  I have been tempted to taper the fore end a bit.  The finish looks great at a distance but the actual woodwork quality is just average; the fore end grip slot has a sharp edge on it that needs to be rounded smooth, there's a couple of spots where the spar urethane didn't fully cover, and if you see the inletting, looks like a hammer & chisel went crazy.   So a CNC-machined Boyd it is not, but it does have character.  The longer I wait, the darker the stock with get from the spar so I need to do it soon.

That's a pretty stock, I like the blonde-ness of it.  Usually cherry wood stocks are stained dark (nearly black) and you never get to see any of the grain.

Projects / A Chinese Para... sort of
« Last post by yellowjacket on Today at 10:01:25 AM »
So this rifle started out life with me as one of the recent sino-banian imports from Classic.   Everything was very serviceable with little to no rust, typical finish wear, and stocks bumps and bruises.  No mods other than installing a Murray firing pin/spring.   About a year ago, I got the bubba bug and when considering the choices between my Russian, two Yugos (59 and 59/66), and this Chinese... the arsenal 26 lost out.  At first, it was a fully reversible bubba, but later... not so much.  Some days I think about lost collectibility, other days I'm glad I have a serviceable, practical, fun-to-shoot, built-like-a-tank SHTF gun.

Here it is in its original state:





After having her for a couple of years, I added Tech-Sights, installed a donor FSB that I neutered, and then mounted in a Ram-line stock.  I never really liked this configuration but, it was reversible.





Eventually, I went full bubba, cut the barrel to 16 1/2", added a Prince50, and shed the Ram-line in favor of a custom, cherry stock from a guy on Etsy.

Here's the way she looks today:






I'm happy with it.   dance2

Yes, There was an experimental Yugo select fire SKS that is obviously not able to be imported.
A couple have made it in with their selector switch removed.

The factory produced SKS is a Semi auto only carbine.

They type-63, often mistakenly called an sks variant, is a select fire rifle. But it is not an sks. And it is not  legal to import  to the US.
