Snowed in, with a credit card+boredom!Sooo, I picked up an ugly orange painted SKS on GB. The paint was peeling, it looked old underneath, and the metal looked real good. Well it appears to be an arsenal rebuild with all matching #'s. Even the bottom of the sight ladder has the same number. I think it is pre-ban, but I am a newbie. Spike bayo with a bolt. Date of manufacture about 1970++. After stripping the ugly orange, the stock shows a lot of use, but the metal is like new, even the receiver rails. It still had cosmoline on many parts. I'm thinking a military rifle that was an arsenal rebuild, because the metal looks new. It's got the Chinese characters after the serial#, and I think the chamber and barrel are chrome. It's got 2 coats of tung/BLO/iodine tincture mixture.
