I was recently gifted this Chinese SKS that has been seriously altered or bubba'd up! I am in the process of restoring it, just because I cannot stand to see her in this current condition. I never thought I would ever be restoring an SKS.......LOL.
This SKS appears to be a Chinese model, but not sure which one. She has a matching wooden stock and some sort of black gas tube cover. The barrel has been cut and the front sight base/spike bayonet assembly is gone.
There was a very cheap 30 round magazine attached, but I threw that in the trash. I had a standard 10 round magazine lying around that I installed already.
There was also some sort of top cover installed that had a cheap pica-tinny rail. I removed that and replaced it with one I had in my parts bin. So neither the magazine or the top cover match any longer.
The only markings I can find on this Chinese SKS is on the left side of the receiver. It appears to be a serial number and a "G2"? I have researched and believe it was made in 1967.
Also there some import markings of Poly on the left side as well. Though they were drilled through to mount some sort of cheap side scope mount. This scope mount was gone before I got it. I will have to find some sort of correct Chinese side rail to mount in this location to cover up the three uneven tapped holes.
Suggestions or advice?
Thanks for any help. More information and photos to follow as things develope.
Here is the only markings and the import stampings.
