2/22/21 - This is an excellent example of Russian SKS made in the Tula factory in 1956. We understand this to be an alphabet gun, having a "KP" serial prefix and a Cyrillic "A" suffix. It also has a Tula star on top of the receiver. That would indicate this gun was made in 1956, the last year these guns were made in the Tula factory. There is an import mark on the barrel, but the gun is all matching, including the stock. The metal parts are in minty condition, retaining almost all of their finish. The stock is very nice, but there are some minor handling marks here and there, nothing major. Comes with a canvas sling. The bore is near-mint.
