Chinese SKS (Commercial) / Re: Should I buy a Chinese "French Tickler"?
« Last post by High Noon on April 19, 2021, 08:49:23 PM »
Thanks for the compliments, guys! The rifles speak for themselves, for sure.

The crate is actually a Yugoslav Honor Guard SKS crate I was lucky enough to pick up from a member here (thanks SKhiSm 59-66A1!) in late 2015. I paid a lot more in freight than the cost of the crate, but like anyone else that's determined, I wanted it and paid the money. I've never regretted it.

The crate:








The original contents: (No, I wasn't that lucky! There were a few members here that did get lucky on those, though!)



The inside, empty:





Not really a "necessary" item, but still a bit of history and a little "cool" factor to it.

They're a little long for the Chinese SKS because they're made for the Yugo M59/66A-1's but I don't mind.  thumb1




I didn't mean to hijack your thread, High Noon. I started by showing the "Ticklers" but gravitated to the crate. Gotta show off the goods every once in a while. :)

No worries...  It's a nice collection of rifles!

Firearms For Sale / North Korean (Smithsonian grade)

Ok....  some folks may not get the Smithsonian inside joke.   rofl


House... baby.....  whatever, its just a gun right? 

100% matching and 100% original with blood soiled NK sling. Blood rust finger swipes are included with the purchase.... along with the trace amounts of cosmo.

$5,000...  offers sent to me via pm








 





 













All kinds of original stamps... Circle Star, and various numbers within a circle...  32, 27, 12
















Stock has two rear pins rather then a rear ceossbolt like the russian laminate.




Two pins up front also...





Something I found interesting... the Circle Star stamp shows though to the bottom side of the receiver cover.










Another thing I found very interesting is that the bolt face has a prominent back-cut channel around the outside and only the center of the round is supported.   No idea why they would do this.






















I have also NEVER seen the inside of a gas block this clean and pristine...




Another cool characteristic...  The upper front left side of the receiver has a 'flat' area similar to an early russian.  The profile on the other side however is rounded like normal with only a very small ridge.   






Can still see cosmo in some areas of the receiver.









And I'm fairly certain this bayo screw has never been removed and is originally staked.

I heard some scuttle-butt that Choate had decided to rebuild the mold for their conventional stock.

I am happy to say that they did indeed rebuild it and are back in inventory with their conventional SKS stock. They are also continuing production of the M4 and folding stocks. Sorry, no Dragunov stocks, but at least we have a good option as opposed to the ATI Monte Carlo stock.

Good to know. Thanks for the update on this.

Yeah, I got curious so I called. Spoke with a nice older lady who kind of chuckled when I asked then said "yes our mold did get ruined and we had a new one made so are back in production. We are only producing black stocks though, no more colors"

Is that the Choate raised HG coupled with the Butler Creek stock in your pics?

It is Choate's "No Vent" HG. It is raised making for a vent the entire length. Has a nice profile and is a subtle change. Looks good with a 5 round mag. PAX
