Looks like you got a nice one Newchi! These were rare as hens teeth for the longest time up there, I take it there have been newly arrived commercial imports and these are selling at retail now? How do they compare pricewise with the plentiful Russian and Chinese SKSís you guys have? Does the canadian government add any restrictions because of the grenade launcher? (These are illegal to own in California, way too dangerous just in case some yahoo got his hands on some surplus grenades)
They were really hard to find, they came in about 9 months ago i think
These cost about 2 x a russian or 3 x a chinese right now. $700, ($500 US).
More than i wanted to pay but i have learned if you dont buy them when they arrive they dont get any cheaper.
No the launcher on the end doesnt seem to matter, whos crazy enough to try and make their own grenades...
Nice one, newchi! You really get an appreciation for that grease by the time the rifle's clean! And it's great "bonding" time with your new firearm.
I have never seen grease like it, its like flypaper. i lost my latex gloves to it. I feel like a cartoon character, get one hand stuck try to free it with another, now its stuck.
My degreser doesnt touch it. The oven barely worked and really really stank the house out.
I put the bolt in boiling hot water and got that to wipe clean.
Its not like Russian or Chinese grease, this may take a while...
