« on: January 12, 2019, 03:17:31 PM »
Ok folks, the 1 gunshow of the year withing an easy drive was today and on a whim i picked this up, dont really know why other than the 3 characters mean something.  Havent been paying much attention to gun related things lately.
Everything that can take a photo needs recharging so heres the important one for now.

Thanks everyone, like i said it was spur of the moment as it was the cheapest and nicest of the chinese i had seen and i was 3/4 of the way through the tables already.  $400 91/30s were not for me :o
Oh and i forgot that they all have the 3 characters on the side :))

The three characters mean “Type 56”. The Chinese read and write right-to-left, but numbers are always written left to right in any language I’m aware of (mathematics follows universal rules, unlike languages). Therefore, from left-to-right, the characters are: 5 6 Type.

1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms... It doesn't matter how many Lenins you get out on the street begging for them to be taken.

Heck yeah, I don't discriminate based on nationality!  Make sure you enter the "Not a US import" in "the no import stamp" question.   thumb1
