Interesting...

How about a picture showing the left side of the receiver/markings and the left side of the stock? Does that stock have any #'s stamped on the left side? Do all the #'s match?

That looks like a laminated replacement Russian SKS stock and it should be cut out for a blade bayonette rather than the spike.

If that is indeed a Sino-soviet, I have never seen one in a laminated stock before.

Nonetheless, that is an interesting and nice looking rifle!

I was wondering the same thing....laminate Russian stock on a Sino....:cool:
Definitely a new one on me, too....

Is that patina or is the bolt blued? Interesting..the bolt does not have the milled out area on the right side of bolt carrier..a Chinese characteristic.

I'm still curious...but a picture of the "Chinese armory mark" you refer to OR a close-up of the left side of the receiver is still necessary to correctly ID this rifle.

With the three Chinese characters..it is eliminated as a Sino Soviet...still interesting ..no small import markings under barrel?

heres a sino i picked up a couple weeks ago for 2 bills OTD,4 digit serial with single letter prefix,long barrel shank

needed some stock work,im told the stock is more than likely a replacement at one point,handguard had what appeared to be deck stain on it,they used Bondo of all things to fill some dents so i stained the filled areas dar to make it look like wood grain ,stripped the deck stain off and shelaced the whole set





















couple afters of the restoration

This is very interesting, and overlaps on to the recent thread about the laminated stock Chinese rifles. akboy2's laminated stock rifle S/N is 12,213,909 One of my laminated stock /26\ rifle's S/N is 12,244,900

I don't know if this is in anyway a coincidence or maybe a run of rifles which ended up with these laminated stocks.

I will have to dig into the back of my safe tomorrow to get my rifles so I can take a few photos of them.
