I'm not crazy about the stock, but still a real good buy for 100 bucks. I have 4 SKS's and they are fantastic rifles that are a hell of a lot of fun to shoot. Here's a link to some great information on your new rifle.

You have some surface rust on the outside. How's the bore look? As long as the bore's clear, you did indeed steal that thing! Well done!

I think you may be looking at the wrong numbers. I've had a few Norinco SKS's and the ones that I had all had a 7 or 8 digit serial numbers. Plus I did a little research and I couldn't find anything with a 5 digit serial number. Check the receiver for a 7 or 8 digit serial number... or possibly a six digit. That 6, 7, or 8 digit number will correspond to a production year. For example, my Norinco SKS has 24,XXX,XXX serial number which corresponds to a 1980 production date. See the chart below:

Here's how it works:

Serial number less than 1,000,000 ------> 1956
1,XXX,XXX ------> 1957
2,XXX,XXX ------> 1958
3,XXX,XXX ------> 1959
4,XXX,XXX ------> 1960
5,XXX,XXX ------> 1961
6,XXX,XXX ------> 1962
7,XXX,XXX ------> 1963
8,XXX,XXX ------> 1964
9,XXX,XXX ------> 1965
10,XXX,XXX ------> 1966
11,XXX,XXX ------> 1967
12,XXX,XXX ------> 1968
13,XXX,XXX ------> 1969
14,XXX,XXX ------> 1970
15,XXX,XXX ------> 1971
16,XXX,XXX ------> 1972
17,XXX,XXX ------> 1973
18,XXX,XXX ------> 1974
19,XXX,XXX ------> 1975
20,XXX,XXX ------> 1976
21,XXX,XXX ------> 1977
22,XXX,XXX ------> 1978
23,XXX,XXX ------> 1979
24,XXX,XXX ------> 1980
25,XXX,XXX ------> 1981

Also, rifles serial number 9,000,000 (1965) and higher had the spike bayonet fitted while those below 9,000,000 had the standard blade type bayonet. Since yours has a blade it is a 1964 or earlier unless someone has switched the bayonet.

Did you fellas notice the blade bayonet instead of a the typical spike bayonet?

It looks like a Sino Soviet blade bayonet and the receiver may have early Chinese factory code 26 SKS which was produced from 1956 till 1965.

It is possible that this is a Sino-Soviet SKS that some one "Bubba-fied".

If it is, it is a rare version.

PS It's also missing its cleaning rod.

During the mid-50's, when the Soviets introduced the SKS to the Chinese, they sent parts, machinery, and workers to China's Jianshe(factory /26\) plant to get the Chinese started with the Simonov carbine. IIRC, they were made with surplus Soviet parts at factory 26, and were made between 1955-1956. 1955 was the first production run. And rather than a normal six digit serial no. like othe Norincos, they have alpha-numeric serials, with one western letter followed by four numerals. It's basically a Chinese-built Russian SKS.

The 7 digit serial number is consistent with the blade style bayonet. It should start with a 1-8 which indicates that it is a early rifle.

Great find! Mine came with the Dragunov stock, and although I love it, I *think* I need another one with an original. I don't think you could have done better for $100; in my area the cheapest they come is $300.

New to sks. Need help identifying sks make and model.
Serial number on top of bolt is 235941
Serial number on the side of the receiver is 3235941
That's all the identifying features I have seen on the gun.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
