I bought a Chinese "Paratrooper" SKS at the funshow on Saturday. It is the 10rd fixed magazine model with a 16" barrel. With a Mojo rear peep it will make a nice "truck gun". Nothing fancy.

I cleaned the barrel really well---twice---and I cannot see the telltale outline of chrome lining around the muzzle and the chamber area shows no sign of the silverish looking stuff. Looking down the bore with a borelight the rifling seems crisp, so I doubt it's so dirty that the chrome lining is hidden. When I field-stripped it most of the parts SEEMED relatively new, some still covered in cosmoline. I don't think it's been shot that much. Oddly the piston has a fair amount of pitting on it, but not inside the barrel.

I was always under the impression that ALL Chinese SKS's were chrome lined. In fact, IIRC all country's were except for Yugoslavian ones. Did some Chicom ones not have chrome lined barrels?

cant answer your question but IMHE with the SKS it will make a awesome truck gun.

Chrome lined barrel, pitted barrel, brand new in cosmoline, beat to shit never been cleaned and they all pretty much shoot the same!

They chrome lined the bore only, not the chamber. This only applies to chinese versions.

No never. No chinese SKS were ever imported EVER without a chrome lined barrel- EVER.

Nothing to contribute?

Then DON'T. The guy asked a serious question.
