I'm talking to a guy about trading for his Norinco 56S-3 w/red bakelite furniture. The rifle looks to be in really nice shape & could be unfired. I've never seen one of these before, and was wondering what you guys thought it might be worth...
The Norinco and Polytech were banned from import, so they have collector status; The less use they have, the more they are worth.
I don't believe they are any better or worse than the European AK's. They were the weapon of choice of Charley in Vietnam, and have an attached folding spike bayonet.
What exactly is a 56S-3?
56S Fixed Stock
56S-1 Under-folding Stock
56S-2 Side-folding Stock
