I just recently purchased an SKS (thru GunBroker.com), that I thought was a great deal: Russian, with several "upgrades", including peep sights, recoil buffer, ATI stock, Kivaari trigger job, etc. Sounds great, eh?
But after receiving it, I find that about half the upgrades it was supposed to have, it actually doesn't have. One of these is the trigger job...I can't be absolutely sure about it, but given the praise I've seen for this work all over the various SKS boards, I can't believe that this gun has the Kivaari trigger on it.
Is there some way a "layman" like me can check to see if it actually had the Kivaari trigger work done on it, or if the guy swapped out a stock trigger? I'm thinking there might be some "fingerprint" (sort of like a silversmith's stamp), that I could look for...
Probably not, but I thought I'd ask.
