  Please post pictures of the SKS, as detailed as possible. It's much easier to identify rifles when the members can see what it is. And welcome to the board!

  If you need help with posting pics, this link will make it easy for you:

Six Corp is an exporter just like Norinco. The rifle may say Made in China by (Norinco, CGA, Six Corp, etc.) but they are not manufactures. They are the export companies. Most SKS's with export names on them are considered late production (pinned barrel, stamped FCG, stamped magizine and so on).

Thanks triple xxx. What is the value difference between one with stamped parts vs not if condition is the same?

How the parts are made do not determind value as much as the overall condition does. In a Chinese SKS stamped parts work equally as well as milled parts do.

Hard to tell the pics are a bit small. But in general if they are matching parts numbers, with good stocks and bluing then 300.00 is a very good deal.  8)

Both are all matching numbers. The only thing I do not like is the one with the blade has a scope mounted on it. It looks like a Chinese replica of a PSO scope but I am not sure. Brand new to the SKS game.

China experimented with stamped metal recievers for the sks. Much like an AK is built. They  were not so successful in this being a less expensive or time saving venture.  They are VERY rare and very collectable.  Do a search in the Chinese sks forum and you will find several threads discussing the stamped reciever sks.  They are also discussed on Yoopers site and in the stickies on this forum.

No I didn't forget about the stamped receiver. Just didn't think it pertained to this thread. Alot of the parts on a stamped receiver SKS are unique to that rifle and do not necessarily interchange with milled receiver SKS"s. The charging handle comes to mind Possibly other parts.

In all honesty guys I plan on keeping both these rifles and don't really care what they are worth just curious. I am surprised at how much I really like these guns. Coming from ARs and AKs I thought the SKS was an old and out dated rifle. Boy was I wrong. Maybe once I learn a little more I will be able to tell if I have one of the stamped receiver rifles or not. Either way for $300.00 each I feel like I made out well considering the condition they are in.

Thanks for all of the help/insight guys. I look forward to learning a lot more from yall.

Don't worry, after a while you will come to the realization that they are this really cool hybrid of AK and Garand types of rifles with lots of character just like you got them. Lots of folks try to make them into AKs, but to me you can fiddle with it in different ways to make it more, not into something it was replaced by........... if you want to fiddle at all.

Sorry for throwing a wrench in the works. just ribbin joe a bit  :)
 Neither of your guns appear to be a stamped reciever sks. XXX is very correct as some guns have stamped trigger groups. In general it does not effect the quality or price. Some people do have a preferance for a all milled gun.
 Looks like you have a good start on a fine collection. Congrats.
