« on: July 03, 2019, 08:48:51 PM »
Hi everyone

I put a Chinese SKS on layway last month Its a Norinco which I got for a pretty good price due to the Bayonet missing. I'm new to the SKS how do i know if its a knife or spike bayonet I need?

Welcome Gary! A serial number and arsenal markings can help us determine whether it needs a blade or spike bayonet. If you don't like sharing SNs tell us the first two numbers and how many digits.  :)

Hmm, Iím unfamiliar with that SN format. Assuming the importer added R00 to the beginning to ensure it was a unique number in their records then it would be a 21 million, 21st year of production Type 56 (1976) and require a spike bayonet. Iím also assuming itís a standard configuration with 520 cm (20.5Ē) barrel. Spikes are still easy to find. Notice Iíve made a couple of assumptions and pics would help when you can get them but it likely needs a standard length spike bayonet.

It would be pretty interesting if Norinco was a name attached without reference to reality and this was a KBI Russian misread.
That is a wacky serial for a Chinese...and a bit off even for a KBI, misread.
If indeed Chinese, the arsenal and importer data are pretty crucial....pictures an absolute must over and above that. :)
