The latest reviews on the site seem promisingish...
I am not in a place to bite this year...too many other handles of irons in the fire. At least we don't have sales tax here...and a recent shopping cart showed they don't charge us for it here. It would be a kinda good deal for what I would like to get...but I doubt they will let me get as specific as I want for even the $50 off....and it still be worth it vs. other crap that just has to happen.

I didn't even buy ammo this year.  cry1

First I would like to say thank you for all the great information on this form. I am a first time SKS buyer. I picked up one of these from the first batch they had in back in March. I thought I would post a few pictures and maybe someone can confirm the date. The rifle was in good shape, the barrel was like new and the stock was a little beat up. It shoots just fine and its accuracy is limited by the user more then the rifle. All the numbers seem to match. I feel I received value for the price, even though the second batch was $20 less...lol. If they get another batch will it be even less?

Welcome to the Files!

That looks like a very good Type 56!  First two digits are 15, so 15th year of production of the Type (19)56 = 1970

That was a very scarce year until the latest imports of these Chinese that were provided to Albania (and trans-shipped through Austria). These imports haven't changed the fact that 1970 was a low production year of the Type 56 at Jianshe. Nice score!  thumb1

Wow...I post and it appears.

If I had my choice, this would be exactly what I would have hoped for.
I would love to see more pics, unless you left out a nasty shot of a recent (unboxing video) gouge in the stock...that is likely the nicest I have seen yet from this batch.

Welcome to the files, and congratulations. Welcome to your new addiction...you are off to a great start.
