General SKS Discussion / "Bayonets" as a discussion topic
« Last post by Matchka on Today at 01:08:11 PM »
Admins & Members,
This has probably been suggested in the past, but tossing it out there for 4Q 2020. Would a  separate discussion thread for the SKS bayonet be helpful?
Posts related to types (blade/spike) & manufacturer, stamps/markings, dates, metal, colors, finishes, 'correct & incorrect', screw or rivet, stock cuts, attachment, repairs, "did or didn't come with", and of course - pics, etc, etc. - all of which come up for discussion on a routine basis. YJ's coverage is sufficient for the historian but, Files members might benefit from a 'one-stop' thread to address these thangs.  :)

Are you planning on selling the "slicks"? I'd be interested in one or both, depending on the price you decide on.

Both of 'em are now attached to two /26\'s that had non-matching mags (now in the group of ten). Keeping.

Hey Bubba - I sold the rifle with those mods and don't have a pic of the  tube holes.  Here's a detailed description of that one (#2) and other mods.  I have a post further down on that thread, too.  Canada has 5-round mag limits for all centre-fire rifles, so there are several ways to do that too.

Please post your pics of the gas tube holes and location.

Years ago Bushmaster did this mod to their rifles as they were patterned after the AK gas system to improve cycling.They called it the "Galil Mod".

I am actually surprised it is dated that late considering how it is made...perhaps the naval surplus gives a better timeline of how long that style was made, possibly more of them were left unused.  Then again, that recent CIA thing kind of makes it seem like a lot of what was going on may have been a few years later than we suspected. For that report to be so incorrect/incomplete four years after main production started....it seems like Russia must have been stockpiling for awhile before even issuing these, I mean...it was technically peacetime.

The photo I have of cadets marching exclusively with SKS spikers in 1958 makes me wonder just how long it was before the SKS was even put to use. Perhaps the BBQ paint was just easier to DUST than bluing?  rofl

Got my Black Navy SKS sling from the Ukraine today. took less than 2 weeks to get here. Also came with a free Russian rubber band(see 2nd pic) chuckles1 chuckles1




One step closer to, as Justin put it, my Naval Commisar SKS! Sling is 1952 stamped, but it's a lot closer than the green one was.

I think by the time I got to that kind of gun collecting...I would already have more tanks in my yard than parking spots in the driveway. My daily driver would be a Sherman.
