I just got my first SKS. The wife picked it up for me yesterday as a late Christmas present (we don't exchange gifts, we wait until tax time and get something we wouldn't normally buy at any other time of the year). It is an early production (post Russian style S\N) built at the Jianshe Arsenal Sometime between late 1956 and 1958. It approximately #2,400,000 from that plant. Just got done removing the evil red gunk from it, and I am pleased with the overall condition of the rifle. the wood is a little beat, but the bore and the mechanicals are in near perfect shape.

Will post a range report sometime down the road, but for now, it's time to post some pictures.

Thanks. We picked up a couple hundred rounds when she bought it at the LGS. I'll wait on a spam can until after we relocate. House we're trying for is about 5 hours south of where we are now, so i want to keep the extra traveling cash for now.

that and i really don't want to have to get it shipped to a dealer per the Unsafe Act. Better to wait for now.

Looks good brother. I want to do that to mine. I got the O.D green stock and gas cover. I would like to do the same with a black pattern.

Thanks. I was nervous about doing it. Made the stencil myself. I practiced on a bb gun first with just 2 colors.
The sks actually has 4 colors in it...black stock, primer grey, od green, and camo brown
