    I have not dated mine, but there is some guidance that i looked over briefly.

    I have the tapco furniture on my SKS and like it, especially the extendo buttstock. It does make the rifle feel a bit front-heavy, though.

    Alas, mine is home in the dark of the safe.

    If you don't like your sights, take a look at these: http://www.tech-sights.com/sks.htm I like them, but not all of my buddies do.

    I've got those on a yugo and don't like them but unless it's some rare SKS which I doubt if I can't unscrew it I'm gonna cut it in half haha

    The Chinese version of the SKS was not made until 1956. That is why it is called a Type 56. Serial numbers were NOT unique- when they began to import them, had to add additional numbers to make them legal.

    That bolt is a cross bolt to reinforce the stock. You do NOT remove it to take down the rifle. Here are instructions- http://www.pistolcraft.com/sks/

    Check carefully to see if your rifle has an import stamp (name or initials of importer, city, caliber) If NOT, do not fool around with it. Strong chance it was a war trophy, and not having that stamp runs value up quite a bit.
