Very nice!  Thanks for filling out the survey.  This reminds me that I need to put the PE arms importer stamp as an option on the survey.   thumb1

Hello, this is my first time posting so sorry if I do something wrong.

I got my sks from classic a few days ago. I paid the extra 25$ for hand select. I filled out the survey and from what I understand it's a late model. All numbers match. Stock is in ok shape, few gouges and dings here and there. Metal components are in good shape. Buttery smooth and the bluing is ok. Bore looks new. Serial number is 122893xx.

If you need anymore info just ask.


Nice looking rifle!

Nice 1967 Johnothan! Those chrome-lined bores are great.

She was gunked in cosmoline. Looked like a Carmel apple. It didnt come with a cleaning kit however I found a twig of unknown origin in the trap door. I used mineral spirits in a spray bottle to clean it up.

Bummer about that lost nut, those are hard to find by themselves.  You can sometimes find a complete crossbolt replacement with the nut on ebay for ~$10. 
If you don't mind the higher price, DF has them in stock: https://www.desertfoxsales.com/SKS_RIFLE_CROSS_BOLT_p/sks-009.htm

Update on the crossbolt. Ebay had one from Russia but it would'nt arrive until July. DF had a used one  but didn't show good pics and I didn't know if the threads would be stripped or not. But I found a new one from Kengs that worked perfect.

PM, me to remind me. I may have a crossbolt I can help you with. I'm not 100% but if you remind me to check this weekend we can work it out.

Thanks Bob but I already found one at Kengs. It was brand new OEM and it worked perfect. Although its new it has a dull look to it and blends with the worn carbine very well.

I think Kengs Firearms Technologies is a importer that imports parts from Poly Technologies and other exporters. They have a website and they also sell on Gunbroker. I found them on Gunbroker. I knew KFS was a importer but I didn't know they were still in business. I see a lot of Russian carbines with their KFS import mark.

This one came from Classic this week. Importer is PW ARMS. I believe the stock to be a Albanian replacement.




just picked up mine today from LGS, still in cosmoline. very similar # 12277772. will try pics, but don't do them well.  pullhair1

I don't see too many import markings like this. The 10,000 range is the highest I've seen or heard about so far.


similar #, no cutout. maybe they all didn't have one.  :o

maybe my stock was made on a Monday and the worker was hung over.  or a Friday and was in a hurry to get out of work.  :o

If it has an inverted takedown lever, guaranteed that it had a notch on the ORIGINAL stock.   thumb1

Any year 12 /26\ with a side swivel is a replacement stock.

I had completely overlooked the inverted takedown lever. Thanks RM
