Folks:

That is not a Norinco, it is an Albanian SKS. There were only about 5,000 of them ever imported, and they go for about $400 and up on Gunbroker, and they go quickly. Grab that rifle ASAP!

Notice the extra long hand guard?

Thanks for the correction! Does it have a chrome lined barrel?

I believe the answer is "Yes", but to be certain, you can check the inlet end of the receiver for the chrome layer. It should be readily visible. It'll be very shiney, and show a noticeable overlay on the steel receiver. Good luck!

Very Cool! I've never handled one of those. I heard they were of very good quality.
