Just got a new safe queen. Any good?
I just traded for a 90% plus condition chinese SKS.

It has all matching serial numbers everywhere. It also has a chrome lined or stainless lined barrel. When running a rod through it, there was no trash, only a cosmoline substance (like new).

Has boyonet, storage hole witch had cleaning kit, and the cleaning rod under bayonet. Also has sling with chinese markings.

I will say that I am in it for less than $250...

Is it of any value and did I get a good deal?

Is there any way to determine year from serial number?

I just found out after research that it is a bit of a rare model. It has a "26" stamped inside of a triangle, smooth stamping, made in 1956 for Cinese Police. It even has matching sling with it.

Fun carbines. Be SURE to get the firing pin channel in the bolt de-gunked. These have a floating firing pin, and there have been instances of slam-fire from the FP being stuck in the forward position by dried grease.

Bores were chromed- commie standard ammo was corrosive, chromed resisted pitting. Price on these has been going up- IMHO, the Chinese are better than the Yugo imports that have been all over the market- a lot of those have questionable, non-chromed bores, and the gas shutoff valaves become a problem.

If yu have not had one before, some good info on a LOT of milsurp guns at
