My name is Craig, USAF MSgt retired, originally from Springfield, IL and currently residing in Atlanta suburbs.
I purchased a Russian SKS yrs ago at a gun show for less than $100, but like an idiot, sold it to someone else. I always wanted a Chicomm SKS, so I broke down and ordered one from Classic. Iím still removing cosmo, but itís a low 11 million, non matching dust cover (stock, trigger group, bolt carrier/bolt are matching) and the gas tube/piston electro pencil four digit numbers are the same, but also do not correspond with rifle serial number. Mine has milled trigger group, and has nice wear on the stock and blueing so that you can tell it was used. The bore/chamber are great! Iím happy with how it looks...nice addition to my surplus collection. I also have an M1 carbine (Underwood) that my Dad gifted me.
Iíll add to the Classic Firearms post some pics as soon as I complete the cleaning and get it reassembled.
