Additional Information
These Chinese Type 56 used surplus rifles are from the early Vienam era (1960s). They were banned from importation by the Clinton Administration in the early 1990s; however this shipment of early production rifles was granted an exception for import since they were stored for more than 20 years outside of China. Packed in heavy Cosmoline for storage purposes, these early production rifles feature threaded receivers, spike bayonets, and chrome-lined barrels.

Original military-issue Chinese Type 56 SKS Rifles in 7.62x39 caliber with 10-round built-in mag, hardwood stock, and folding bayonet. These rifles have seen active combat so they are in used condition, NRA-rated Fair to Good. Stock sets may have dings, gouges, trench art, or minor cracks, but all will be solid and serviceable. Metal parts may have bluing worn off and rough stocks, but they will have good bores and are functioning rifles.

These rifles have not been seen in the US for the last 20 or more years and are desired collectibles. Main external numbers will match the receiver, stock, bolt, bolt carrier, and dust cover (if they are marked). These Chinese Type 56 SKS Rifles carry a lot of history and are a great addition to any collection.

Please note: These rifles have been in storage for several years and are coated in Cosmoline for protection. The rifle and interior of the barrels will need to be thoroughly cleaned before firing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great metal parts, but woods a bust I bought this rifle with the expectation of having to replace the stock, full disclosure. The metal parts of this weapon are in great condition, very little rust/tarnish on the bolt carrier and trigger guard. Small splintering near the magwell and all around on the inside of the stock. A 2 centimeter tall by 12 inch wide splinter was missing from the rifle on the left side on top the stock. This has severely weakened the central bolt that the barrel rests on. While probably operable, it would shatter by the end of a full magazine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chicom SKS Came with 2 large cracks in the stock at the back of the receiver. Fixed best i can. I get it that its an old surplus rifle, but still disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good not great I bought this and wasn't totally sure what to expect. it took 3 hours to thoroughly clean and could definitely benefit from refinishing the stock. All the metal parts were in decent shape, some had minor pitting but the bluing overall was decent. it shot great at the range.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SKS Furniture was rough, but expected. Mine came with some trench-art and wear. Internals were solid. After some polish and shine, it is reliable and accurate.

I've purchased surplus from Gander Outdoors before and I've been extremely happy. What condition are these? G = Good VG = Excellent Numbers matching? Can we speak to anyone that would know?
