What kind of SKS do I have?
« on: January 19, 2009, 11:54:02 PM »
I was wondering if someone could tell me what type of SKS I have and any other info about it.  I bought it a few years ago and don't remember what type it is.  I also can't find anywhere online that I can use to tell me the difference between all the different makes.
Here is a photo.
Thanks

from what I can see, that is a nice, clean EARLY chinese SKS as indicted via the blade, milled trigger group (you can see the trigger guard on it is milled) and the "long collar" action.

Very nice gun.

LG :walk:

I am pretty sure that when I bought it I was told it was a Yugo.  Is there a way to tell what type I have?  Serial numbers or something?
Thanks.

Look on the side opposite the charging handle. What does it say?

I'm not sure what a charging handle is, but on the left side of the receiver it says C-39040.  I can't find any other markings besides numbers on the gun.
I'm almost positive that they told me it was a Yugo when I bought it.  I believe Chinese ones were harder to get.  I only paid $189 in CA, which was cheap at the time ( about three years ago).

The charging handle is what you slide to the rear and then allow to slam forward to load a round. Here is a great info source:

Pflug,
Not that I don't believe you, but is there a website that I can confirm?  No offense, I would just like to learn as much as I can about it.  Is it rare?  Valuable?  Better than a Chinese?
I know nothing about SKS's except that I love to shoot it.
