Description

Original Chi-Com Vietnam Era Military Surplus Type 56 Chinese SKS Rifles Manufactured at the famous Jianshe Arsenal #26 7.62x39, semi-auto. Includes 10 round box mag and spike type folding bayonet. Well used and will show their history but highly functional and very cool! These are military turn ins so expect some battle scars. Stored in heavy cosmoline.

Update 05/07/2019 - These are the remainder of the very exclusive lot of rifles that we originally offered several weeks ago. We committed to this entire lot of rifles very early in the year but they got separated onto 2 different vessels during the import process and this second batch took far longer to arrive than expected. The good news is that they are finally here and we are happy to be able to offer them.

See Brutus description and video for full details .

Buyer beware! ! Bought a VEPR shotgun from Classic a few years ago & they shipped it in brown paper bag so rear tangent sight w/ sheared off in transit. FFL was incredulous. Unfortunately I accepted the transfer & not sent replacement.

This gun is C&R, that is why they charge what they charge. People with a C&R are happy to find guns that qualify so they will typically accept a rifle that a person using a brick and mortar FFL shop would not accept. If you get a gun at your FFL store that you think is chit, Do Not Accept the transfer. Refuse it and then contact the selling dealer. You must Call the selling dealer, not text, email, snap chat, facebook chat ect. Then, if they will not come to an agreement with you that is satisfactory, you can contact your credit card company to dispute the charge, after you call the seller. I will not buy from classic, but if you do, remember the above process to refuse a transfer. Only you have the power to refuse a firearm that you choose not to accept.

People are weird like that. You could offer them a gun for $200 less but must go to FFL, they'd gladly pay the $200 more so they can feel special using their C&R license. Makes no sense.

"second batch took longer than expected" fuck you ben. Everyone knows you only sell a few at a time so you can drive up the price each time you release a new "small batch". Sweaty Ben and the fucking idiot squad have inflicted permanent damage on the surplus market.

It would be a fantastic price if it wasn't from GREASY "CLASSIC SCAMOLA" FIREARMS....What happened to my favorite salesman that could sell sand to the Saudi's..good old sweaty Ben? Hopefully, he wasn't thrown in the KLINK!

Hey guys, Classic is not a scam site. Supply is low and they sell what they have and advertise it as best as they can (I actually always enjoy listening how they pump their products - live and learn). Yes these particular rifles may be garbage comparing to what we used to and not worth the money but do not trash the retailer unless you have a hard evidence that something is wrong with what they have done. I purchased a few items from them and got what I paid for - nothing was wrong. We all know once they lower the price to 200-250$ these rifles will go in a day w/matching numbers or w/o. It is not a question of seller, but question of the current price does not make it a deal.

Meh, if I was going to buy a SKS I'll do it on gunbroker, at least you have pictures of what you are buying, not this B.S. "hope I get a numbers matching SKS". One of the main price-point of a SKS is "all numbers matching parts".

Dude, I have come to learn the HARD WAY, THAT BEN, CLASSIC AND THEIR ENTIRE BUSINESS MODEL IS BASED UPON THE HUMAN EMOTION CALLED, “HOPE”. Every single time they open a crate you magically see these beautiful rifles that To never ever materialize at your FFL. It’s all a BIG SCAM.....

Yes. If you get a shit rifle you'll pay the return shipping, lose the original shipping and transfer fee. Don't spend $100 for that when you can buy one on gunbroker for $350 and know what you get.

I dont buy crap from Sweaty Ben at Classic,There flat out crook,s the garbage they hawk to unsuspecting new collectors,Most of what they Grade as Good and up would not grade as fair anywhere else.I got a 91/30 from them a so called battle field pick up when they were selling that crap,And that junk was more like what ever pieces of guns they found laying around the warehouse floor after selling off the junk to the suckers waiting in line ,Honestly my stock was nailed together with 2 and 3 inch construction nails and lots of them and it still would not hold it completely together,So I figured well I bought it somehow im gonna shoot it so i managed to stabilize the stock somewhat,Took it out to the range and I hear laughter and im looking around and I notice there all looking at me and one asked hey where did you get that thing at Classic? I said yea how did you know,They said your not the only one with a gun that looks like that,So I figure by then ive really screwed up buying this gun,So I go to chamber a round and it wont chamber,so I force the bolt as hard as i can banking it with my hand and it closed,I thought well maybe its got a little corrosion in there and i aimed pulled the trigger and it fired just fine ,I was like good I dont look so much like a dumbass now in front of all these guys it works just a bit stiff of a bolt so i figured a little oil and work it back and forth and ill be good,Well I went to eject the round and that bolt was not budging,Not going anywhere as I struggled several other shooters came around me offering advice,So one of them had a rubber mallet and we used that to beat the bolt back and open the action we shot it more and every round had to be beat open,so we inspected it closely and inside the chamber looked like water had say for some ungodly amount of time as only one side of the chamber was clean the other side looked like rusty radiator water had been in it for who knows how long and there was no fixing that chamber with out a new barrel,So I contact Classic and after explaining my situation in a email to them they never replied back to all three of them and when I called I could not seem to get thru to anyone down there as I wanted them to take this pos back ,But apparently that was not happening so finally I gave up,I know damn well they got my emails and calls on there voicemail they did not want that pos back either,So if anyone wants to buy a real battlefield pick up from over in the Balkans that that Russian guy was apparently a carpenter and happened to have a pocket full of nails with him when he was shot down to fix his stock but that dident do him a damn bit of good once he realized his gun would not shoot he must have clobbered them over the head with it as busted up as that stock was,Ill make you a deal Ill sell you this genuine Sweaty Ben piece of Battlefield history a real relic of Russian history the Csar himself carried at least for one hour one day during one of the wars for what Sweaty Ben sold it to me for,But your better off if you buy it using the stock for firewood and removing the barrel and beating the hell out of any invaders with the barrel because your sure as hell not gonna shoot anyone with that so called serviceable rifle Sweaty Ben sold me you will blow yourself and anyone else with in a half mile up if you try to shoot what sweaty Ben calls a serviceable rifle ,I still have that pos classic if you want to look me up in your records it was the next to the last thing you sold me the last thing was that Scope Mount from Sadlac new scope mount and when I got this New scope mount ,All the plastic bags Sadlac packs there parts in were opened and as I was putting it on my rifle I noticed parts were missing so i call you and I get the Classic run around oh theres nothing we can do for you,you need to call Sadlac and tell them about it blaming Sadlac,So I send Sadlac I know well as a reputable company and after explaining what id went thru with classic and how my parts arrived from them to me opened and missing parts they were about as happy as I was,I had a customer coming to get his rifle in the morning who was gonna be pissed off his rifle was not ready.Sadlack sent my parts to me as fast as they could still not fast enough i had a pissed off customer lost business and Sadlak did not send that scope mount to them like that apparently some idiot at classic needed a few parts and raided my scope mount bag and sent me junk out two weeks later after i originally ordered my mount I got it on my customers rifle .Personally I hope no one has had an experience with these morons like this but I sure as hell wont buy a damn thing from them unless they want to replace this pos they called a serviceable rifle they sent me

They will only delete a statement if it’s negative. If Classic advertise a rifle at condition 80%, BEN will always tell ya, “Folks remember at Classic Firearms, our grading system is based UPON ROSE COLORED GLASSES. The secret is take our grading and then divide by 2 and you will end up with exactly what we sell you. Now cmon down to the Classic Firearms Website because if you came into a Pawn shop, and saw the drivel we sell you wouldn’t give us your money..... Now come see us at Classic firearms.”

I've passed on buying a IWI Galil Ace 7.62x39, AMD 65 Parts Kit, and few others, because Classic Con was selling them! Well I got burned buying (2) Beretta 92s and (3) Star Model BM SA 9mm at the same time. Do I regret buying them? "No". / Do I regret buying them from Classic Con? "Hell Yes!" Burn me once shame on you, Burn me 5x's in same transaction GFY!

This is Ca legal! A yugo would not be because of the "grenade launcher"

350 is a fair price for a Chinese Type 56, however after tax and $33 shipping it's closer to 400.

It is California legal, Turners just got a shipment today as well. Probably same vendor. $399 and you can buy it on their website for local pickup

Nothing is legal in California; especially some of the people that are living there. The dems love them, though.

After the screwing Classic gave to multitudes of people who fell for Ben Dovers sales pitch on the M39's I seriously cannot believe anyone trusts anything from this company enough to spend their money here.

People were getting M39's with stocks busted in half, rusted solid and badly pitted even after paying for their "handpick" and Classics reply was to read their surplus disclaimer and to go away.

Only after the uproar and pictures being posted on many of the larger collectors forums did these clowns offer any sort of customer service.

Classic is Classic alright, Classic scammers.

Went ahead and rolled the dice on one, $196.70 all in to my door (03 FFL). I'd been wanting to buy something on my 03 since I got it in 2012, never have, and its set to expire Jan 1, so I figured I may as well finally make some use of it, and maybe this will help me justify renewing it. Seems like most of the ones coming through are serviceable, and the next cheapest option is 80 bucks more, and may or may not be any better. If the finish is super horrible, I’ll fill the pitting and duracoat the whole thing. Only really ordered one because Obama and Cuomo don't want me to have it LOL. Will post back when gun is rec'd.

I see quite a few posts of clueless people commenting here that didn't even purchase a rifle. I received mine in less than a week the stock was pretty rough as expected but after breaking the gun down and cleaning it up it was in great shape well worth the price.

I just received my rifles and they are by far the worst rifles I have seen. They are severely pitted and rusted. The pistons had to be forced out with a punch since everything was completed rusted over. No one these were "c" grade. I don't even think i would even rate these a d. Should have been a gunsmith special...

This AD does NOT match their website, on the website it clearly states not all are in working order, The ONLY way I would buy one of these is if they guaranteed they were in working order, other than that you just paid for a wall hanger. And that goes for any vendor. A crack in the stock can be cheaply replaced, stocks on Ebay are $20. And even Classic states NO RETURNS on this item. SAMCO has the best deal right now - free shipping.

I picked up another 4 of these. They should be here early next week. I had good luck with them last time but the reviews of this current batch are making me nervous...
