The beginning of my senior year in high school...
« on: July 10, 2018, 10:47:21 AM »
...was not spent in Communist Albania on the SKS line at Gramsh  :))

Here is the second of two 520mm barreled carbines chambered in 7.62x39 found in a single lot that I picked up at the recent Rock Island Auction (The other is here: http://sks-files.com/index.php?topic=4088.msg45689#new ). A last year of production 1978 Albanian Type 56-1. It's matching and has definitely seen some use before import, but it's still in the grease, since the Albanians put it in storage. As I have a mismatched 1970 shooter, this one will stay in the grease for the foreseeable future.

Very nice.  I shudder to think of what these two probably set you back, but they are both very nice!  thumb1

Very nice! Easily one of the best examples out there. Not a Nun, but likely none much better.  Nice catch.

Has the market for Albanians dipped or stabilized of late? I've seen a handful lately selling low final bids or not getting no bids at all. When I got mine of GB, I was the only bidder.

Is the subliminal message saying that you are 58 years old?

 :)) a reasonable guess but I was only 16 at the beginning of my 1978-79 senior year in high school. Iíll be 57 in September.
