Some Russian and Chinese sks were mafactured and went straight to storage. Some remained there until they were sold to distributors. How many? I have no clue. What I do know is that I have owned both types. they do exist. And old Outlaw ownes at least one.
When the Russian pieces first came in I went to a show and a dealer had 40 rifles on his table.Two of the pieces had not been issued ever.Five had minimal wear without being reworked. All the rest had been reworked or at least had renumbered stocks.The unissued pieces did not bring a higher price as the dealers saw them as just product. I probatly owned 6 to 8 unissued over the years.
They exist. I have a '54 Tula (nonrefurb of course) that shows no signs of ever having been fired.
