Chinese Type 56 SKS Fiberglass Stock
« on: November 21, 2020, 12:26:00 AM »
Just want to share some info here. I have just found official information that (1) fiberglass stock was designed and production started before March 1970; (2) there was no strict requirement by the military on which kind of wood must be used for the hardwood stock.

Interesting. Can you share the source? I assume it’s in Chinese.

I found it in a tech manual I bought off eBay. The manual was published in 1970 by National Defense Publishing Press (written in March 1970). It was not available to general public. It is labeled 'Internal Circulation' (kind of equivalent to Confidential). It has lots of detailed info on materials used for each part and tech requirements.

Thank you! I found it by accident when I was looking for something else on eBay last weekend. Cost me 10 bucks including shipping, so not bad at all.

If you guys are interested in specific info, I can try to look it up and post either translations or pics of part of the book.

2 questions, does it have specific info on trigger/sear fitting for repair work? Kind of like what Kivaari has on his website, but maybe with tolerances???
Is there info in there to help confirm the dating process?

Don't think it mentions anything regarding the dating process. I will take a look at info on trigger/sear fitting tomorrow.

The title is 'The Semi-automatic Rifle' (not characters in red, which are just quotations from Chairman Mao). In China, the term 'THE semi-automatic rifle' generally refers to Type 56 SKS.

"Semi-automatic rifle" compilation team.

National Defense Industry Press, March 1970. 178 thousand words. Summarizes the practical experience of semi-automatic rifle production, focuses on the problems that occur in production, analyzes the causes of the problems, and proposes solutions. Divided into 5 parts: the structural performance and functions of semi-automatic rifles, including the decomposition and combination, improvement and development of semi-automatic rifles; blank manufacturing of gun parts, process analysis of die forgings, common defects and preventive measures of die forgings, design examples of typical die forgings , Characteristics and requirements of investment casting, investment casting process, etc.; processing of typical semi-automatic rifle parts (barrel, receiver, gun core, firing bracket, buttstock, gun spring, cold stamping parts for gun); Heat treatment and surface treatment of gun parts; assembly and testing of guns.

The appendix at the end of the book gives reference materials such as relevant data and performance."
