While it is true that you CAN use a bent barrel to shoot around corners, a VERY sharp bend winds up deforming the tangent ogive of the bullet, especially if the cosine of the meplat of a boat tailed spitzer is less than .007

As a result, the accuracy will be so poor you will have trouble hitting anything smaller than a large bovine at any range above 25 feet. This is the origin of the term "shooting the bull".

Germans actually tested this in WWII but thier bullets were to long. The curve in the barrel caused it break up within the barrel and resulted in a shot gun effect sending fragments, rather that 1 slug downrange.

I was stunned when I saw the footage on it. For all the brilliant inventions that came out of Germany in the 30's and 40's, this was a really bad idea.

With an op rod semi auto, it probably would. The Germans tried with a modified Mauser bolt action.

PS
I mean it as joke as well. I don't want to read about you loosing fingers and half your face because your dremmeled sear goes full auto while your testing your new "bent" barrel.

The one that you have would be a Ugo no cromelined barrel. They are supose to be better made and more acurate than the Russian or Chinese SKS.
Mind you both the Chinese and Russian have crome lined barrels for longer sevice life with corosive primmers.
F.K.
