  1. AK And SKS Collector Discussion Board
    A friend of mine, one of the nicest guys I know, has a Norinko SKS. He was firing it a few days ago and says the piston is stuck, protruding about 1-1/4" into the receiver instead of returning to the gas cylinder. He's tried tapping on it, lubing it heavily and tapping on it with a hammer and...

    Some time ago I acquired an SKS which had been kept sealed in a PVC tube for something like 30 years. It had evidently been bought in new un-fired condition, and with Cosmoline still in the crannies, sealed in the PVC and placed in a cistern along with loads of others like it. It was the stash...

    Wondering if someone can tell me anything about the serial number on my Chinese type 56. Is it among the first 1000 made in 68? (#847) or did the chinese not use chronological order?

    So I did the palmetto state sks lottery and ended up getting a 1969 and 1970 Vietnam era type 56 both from factory 26. I was doing some reading and found out 1970 was a very low production year for these rifles out of this factory. I think 20k made? How rare are they? Still need to get the cosmo...

    Hey all, I’m new to gunboards so I figured I would show/talk about the gem in my collection. As the title says it’s a a Bosnian select fire modified M59/66. Prior to importation, the trigger group was swapped out for a normal semi auto trigger group so now this gun is only semi auto. The...

    Hey guys, I am a newbie here and recently purchased this SKS 1950 all matching #'s. Would love to hear any history on her. Thank you all for your input. I am amazed by the history that she probably can tell.

    Hey guys! First time posting on here. I got this a while back. I’ve done some research on my own, but I was hoping someone has more info they can share. Also, are there any good books I should buy? Only book I have is SKS carbine by Steve Kehaya and Joe Poyer.

    Good afternoon ladies and gents. I'd like to pick your brains and see what the general consensus is for the all around best or preferred optic for the SKS. I have a dust cover rail, and have seen a few different scopes that may do the trick but figured I would come to you all first for some...
  10. AK And SKS Collector Discussion Board
    Good morning all! I picked up an SKS a couple years ago from a pawn shop for $400 flat. It was on a black synthetic stock, had been converted to a 5 round steel box mag, had an aftermarket dust cover with integrated top rail, and a tiny 5x scope smashed down on the top. Since then I've toyed...
