Re: Help identify Chinese SKS with Jungle stock

Looks like this page came back...anyhow here it is..or was lol..I agree, and if someone thinks Im wrong about something and I could very well be they should just say like " I think your'e mixed up a bit on that one, try checking this out" or something instead of saying "you dont know what your'e talking about!" because I do fully admit something like that will light me up like a roman candle and that is a problem I have and have been dealing with my whole life, I just dont like being talked to like that.
But so much for that and as long as we agree to be respectfull to each other all should be OK right?
And if someone is doing that kinda stuff they should be corrected by a bunch of people. And like I said if Im set-off Im as guilty as can be of it sometimes but I like guns so much its hard to stay away lol.
But anyway I love Moisin Nagants ( if spelled right ) and it was one of the ones that you used to be able to buy for $100 or less for decades and we have prolly bought at least 25 of them in our time.
I used to always buy my son a gun for his B-Day and still do sometimes but only 6 or so yrs. ago I walked into a Shop near here and said "Yall got any Nagants in the back there?" And the guy said "I'll go look" and I about fell in the floor when he brought out a M-38 ( if thats right for the short one w/o bayo, I think short one with bayo is M-44) for $126 ! And as far as I could tell it was a factory refurb wich is just great as far as Im concerned.
Man what a old battle rifle! It is beautifull and still is.
He (son) collects old battle rifles and his fave type is the Finnish Made ones. There is one type of them he has a few of that is supposed to be the best ones made and for the life of me I cant think of it, it was some country w/a small Army that the Russians attacked in WWII and they beat them back and copied the MN's and made them real nice, it may be Finland but I could be wrong. Guess I could call him tonight and get the low down on it, Im to lazy to check it out for myself lol.
I know I got him an original Bayonet for it a cpl Christmas's /B-Days ago and it was an arm and a leg, like $200!
He also collects those straight-pull bolt actions that I forgot the info about to thru the yrs. as well but I remember in the butt stock plate there was a coin like thing or something that had the soldiers name it was issued to way back when.
What I cant stand was when I was younger you could get that stuff for a song but I didnt want them and now I seriously regret it.
The last real deal I walked right past was the Moisin Nagant Sniper rifle with the original short little scope and that wild looking mount hanging on the wall at a store near here that was called "" for $250!
P.S. The page just came back lol! And I trype the last 3 words and am sending it.

Now, to me, it looks like a "proper" SKS.

I was able to sell the jungle stock for $85 so I ended up putting some of my purchase price back in my pocket (or rather spent it on red army ammo that was on sale for $4.25 a box at cabelas)
OMG! I actually bought my jungle stock for less than $ 20, prolly $12 or so but that was in 1999 I think.
I dont really know what they are made of exactly but on mine you can see in a cpl places these tiny little squares reminiscent of a piece of burlap or something so I just figured that its some kind of resin wrapped in burlap or some kind of cloth to dry or something.
And like I said I really have no idea other than its some kind of plastic type stuff that weighs hardly nothing.
My biggest regret was not picking up that 20 rd. stock-looking magazine w/the star pressed (or reverse pressed) on it for 12 to 20 bucks, dont remember exactly. But last time I looked a few yrs ago they had a cpl of them on Gun Broker.
