Welcome to the FTF, from the swamp north of The Swamp.

Look for a date of manufacture on the top of the barrel.

If it says NORINCO upon it, it is well made, but Chinese.

There are a few different countries which manufactured them,

They were a popular pattern design, back in their day.

Look for distinctive markings, google them, like an arrow

in a star was a Tula marking, making it a Russian Tula, manufactured

in the year stamped at the breech end of the barrel.

Most will also have importation marks on them and many will include the country they were imported from.

Pictures of any markings may be helpful for us to aid in identification as well.

Overall rifle, any markings. In focus, well lighted, without your feet in the picture (we have been known to charge by the foot)

Does it have a bayonet? Just curious. I would like to own an SKS with a spike bayonet.

Sks's come in many shapes and sizes.
The Russian, Chinese, Yugo, Albanian, East German, Korean, Vietnam, Romanian to start the ball rolling.
There screw barrel and pin barrel, the very rare Chinese stamped sheet metal receiver Type 56 only a very few ever made and somehow they were sprinkled in with std milled receiver Chinese type 56's
The Paratrooper, the Chinese AK mag type 56- D & M models.

Look for one with the cruciform bayonet in an aftermarket stock. most around here seem to go for less without the original wood furniture on them. if you find one, let me know. i happen to have an original stock and handguard floating around here in very nice shape, and both of my SKS carbines are blade, not cruciform (Spike).
