My first SKS was a Yugo...I sold it. For me it was too bulky and I hated the grenade launcher.
Now I have two Chicom Paratroopers, a Norinco SKS-M, and a Russian 51 Tula refurb.
ChiCom /106\ unfired, numbers matching, threaded barrel
ChiCom 1967 /26\ threaded barrel
Norinco 1994 SKS-M takes AK mags
Russian 1951 Tula factory refurb, unfired
Chrome lined barrel is a must have for me. Both Russian and Chinese have chrome lined barrels.
