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.
