Chinese polytech judging from the finish, wood, and the hooded front sight block.

Albanian did use a lot of chinese components, but I don't think they would be polished and blued like they are in the picture above.

add to this list that the front trunnions are flat and not relieved where the barrel pin is.

Isnt the bottom one 5.56?

The top two appear to be Norinco 56S-1 rifles (not PolyTech because the front sight hood appears fully hooded as far as I can tell). The bottom one is a Norinco 84S-1 in .223 (by the unique flashhider that only the 84S series carries). Now you need a PolyTech Legend underfolder to complete your underfolder series.

I'm gonna go with the others and say Polytech. The top 2 are 7.62 and the bottm is a 5.56. I owned one about 10 years ago and regret getting rid of it.

PolyTechs had hooded front sights as well. The Legends didn't but the stamped rifles did.



Your right Jeep - I had forgotten about the stamped Poly's having the full ringed hood. I've only had two stamped PolyTechs - a spike bayonet fixed stock that had the full ringed hood (now that I think about it) and a RPK style .223 (I don't remember which style FSB it had, but it had the bipod IN FRONT of the FSB). I kinda stick with the Legend series these days, although I wouldn't mind having a spike bayonet one again (especially a double underfolder).

The top two are definitely ChiCom because the have the angled rear portion on the receiver and the chiCom pattern front trunion and rivet pattern (as best as I can tell - the picture of the top two IS dark). I do notice the difference in varnish tint between the two. Are they ProChine, CJA (China Jing An), or GSAD imports?
