I am curious where OP found the photo of the 1944 Prototype? Thank you very much in advance.
These basically look the same other then one has a longer shroud. You can tell the 1944 magazine (wide portion) compared to the other is not as long. Def not for the larger x54
Probably so... I recall that to be the case from years ago, but either the book is wrong, or the web page it wrong. Someone is wrong. Lol. Need a pic of rotating bolt on that critter. Please... Dont call me sir. Lol
Here's an interesting precursor to the SKS. 5 round single-stack semi-auto in 7.62x54R a couple of years before the M43 cartridge was approved.
Here, found in their bins photo SKSa experienced in 1949! He - tetrahedral bayonet. So in this part of the authorized book "It was used early Russian SKS made in 1944 and in 1949 before replaced by blede bayonet" confirmation yet. About SKS carbines early 1944, the Americans do not know what they write - they at all have never seen, because there detachable bayonet. For 1949 - see for yourself
