Here is a cowboy companion ghost. It is a Navy Arms with the side scope mount and filled in stock.

I believe a ghost is a chinese type 56 that ONLY has a serial number, and no other markings.

Ridin,

Power Surge is correct.  A 'ghost' is simply a 1956-57 produced Chinese Type 56 SKS made before the advent of the /26\ stamp.

It's a Cowboy's Companion because that's what Navy Arms branded it as.  They added had the exporters add the scope rail, filled the bayo groove in the stock, and neutered the bayo lug.  See xxxsks's section in the SKSGuide for more info: http://chinesesks.weebly.com/navy-c-c.html

Nice rifle!  I happen to have one that's a ghost as well... Except mine is a 4 digit! Super early, in fact it's one of the earliest ghosts on record.

Yes the bayonet groove is filled in on all Navy Arms imports with a neutered bayonet. This includes Cowboys Companion's and Farmers Friends.

Actually Navy Arms contracted with the Chinese to modify these rifles for them. They were imported in the configuration seen in the op's pic.

Adam holding out on us isn't nice, you should go sit in the car with the windows rolled up! You do know of course we're all gonna be expecting some photos?!
