Picked up my first Chinese SKS today. Spike bayonet, sling, matching numbers on the receiver, bolt, trigger group, gas tube. Mismatched stock and magazine. VG wood, exc metal. $175 with ~ 500 rounds of ammo on strippers.
Serial number is A19XX, factory marking is 26, pinned and threaded barrel. Importer marks read:

Anyone have any ifo on when it was made or any ideas when it was imported? I checked www.siminov.net but couldn't find date info.
