Hello. I've been collecting military firearms for decades. My first rifle was a Type 56 SKS, bought in 1980. Unfortunately, you couldn't find ammunition for it back then, so when I came back from Okinawa, I was now legal to own a pistol, so I used the SKS as a down payment for a Browning Hi Power. I still regret letting loose of the SKS. Now I've over compensated and now own 15 SKS derivatives, mostly Type 56's (various factory codes and one cast receiver), along with two SKS-D's, an SKS-M and a Romanian. Those form the bulk of my collection, but Garands, M1 Carbines, an L1A1, various handguns, etc., round out the remaining. Thanks.
