I bought it from another military member in my unit who had a collection of SKS's and parts.
I made the mistake of having the weapon refinished in a moment of stupidity instead of leaving it as original back when I was young and dumb and didn't think about the value..
Here's a pic of one of the piles of captured weapons we had to choose from. Most of them were battle worn badly but there were a few fairly new issues ( I guess for TET). Wish I could have brought back the RPD machine gun front left
