RARE 1956 Sino-Soviet SKS Rifle. 7.63 x 36 Type 56 with factory 26 markings, all numbers match. Blade type bayonet (spring is missing). Correct Sino-Soviet sling.
Fires nice! Some wear on original finish and wood stock. 20.5" barrel. Adjustable ladder rear sight, Original wood stock, buttplate with spring-loaded cleaning-kit door, Cleaning kit is included, sling, manual.
- Factory 26, from 1956-1961, had no Chinese characters
- Russian style (early 1956). While under Russian supervision, it was only natural the Russian advisors would implement the Russian style of serial numbering on the Chinese built SKS. They basically followed the Russian style but instead of using 2 cyrillic letters followed by 4 numbers, they used 1 alfa letter followed by 4 numbers. On a few rare occasions an unrecognizable symbol was observed in place of the alfa letter.
This early first year production is better known as Sino-Soviet SKS.
eg early 1956: A1234 /26\
