SKS with 4 chinese symbols? without a triangle symbol
« on: January 23, 2006, 07:40:46 PM »
My father in laws sks in a Norinco.  From L to R it reads: cDP XXXX then 240027XX.  It also says that it was imported from Ontario, CA.  I tried all of the usual links for info on this gun and am a little stumped b/c I have not seen 4 chinese charaters before.  The first three chinese characters are for the model 56 but the last is unknown.  He bought this gun in 92 in the original wooden crate.
thanks

I would but the gun is not at hand and my father in law is out of town on business.  I will have him take a photo of it as soon as he returns.

Interesting with the 4 ideograms but the Ontario CA is Ontario California.

I seem to recall reading somewhere about the DP rifles being part of a government contract the Chinese had to build rifles for Pakistan. Maybe Archivist Dick or Yooperj will chime in here.  I have seen a either a DP or DB marked Chinese before, but I don't remember ANY Chinese writing on it.
