6/2/23 - This is an example of a Chinese SKS Type 56 manufactured at Arsenal 26 in 1964 and has a "spike" bayonet. It is all matching, including the wood stock. There is an import mark and an added serial number on the right side of the receiver. The metal parts have retained nearly all of their finish with just some tiny scratches and handling marks here and there and some minor wear on the butt plate. No major damage to the wood furniture, but there are some bruises and dings here and there - most noticeable on the left side. Comes with an excellent green canvas sling. Mint bore.
