Is it just me, or does it resemble the one mentioned in reply #7 there, a pre-ban conversion by Midwest Ordinance. The stock and pistol grip look exactly alike; check out the markings. Does it say "Midwest ordinance" on the bottom just toward the muzzle from the magazine?

i'm just not a rifle person and it wouldn't serve me any purpose other than being cool LOL I am wanting to buy a new bow and am hoping this could fund it

Looks like an after market stock. Had one just like it. Didn't like it. Luckily I saved all wood and restored it.

Excellent Source for SKS at http://www.yooperj.com/ and http://forums.gunboards.com/archive/index.php/f-8-p-16.html


You kinda follow the Armory (or manufacturing plant) identifier and start from there, Some have dates for a serial, some don't.
It's too bad, I guess there are few records kept in those commie countries.

You included a picture of your markings on one side. However, I cannot see the detail very good.

Perhaps when you have time and equipment, a couple pics in high resolution, cropped to the essential parts and posted on a pic site (like photobucket) would allow us to see it better.

Feel free to put 'tape' over the serial number(s) to obscure it.

This may be a MILLION DOLLAR gun, but most probably not.

i think i figured it out. there are numbers in a rectangle and have gathered that is the factory number. i'll try to get more pics, just moved and have no clue where camera is just had my cell phone. the second set of pictures i posted you can see stamp more clearly

I'd say north of 500$. It's got the cruciform bayo, but takes

AK mags. Standard mag, beat-to-crap, regular bayo, non-matching

serial SKSs are going for 350$ and up, at this point in time.
