I have a Chinese SKS. This marking is on it. It is hard to see with the picture, but its a triangle with the top cut off and a "7" in it. It is followed by the three Chinese symbols.

I'm not sure exactly what the symbol means for sure i really doubt it is a rare one but maybe! makes me curious I'll look around. there were so many shipped over here the surplus rifle from hell you mite say. mine is a Russian but it hasn't a symbol like that.

I have looked everywhere. Most symbols are a triangle with a factory number in them. The pic is kinda hard to see but it is several triangles that make a larger one. The top of the triangle is flat and it had a small 7 at the top.

YOu need a better pic, and right side up :rolleyes:

But I am pretty sure that is the Norinco factory code for factory number 6776...

I agree. It looks like the 6776 factory. Idk if that's a good thing but it has been reliable and accurate in terms of the Sks.

It's the factory stamp, but your picture is upside-down.

None of the Chinese SKS are "rare." The Chinese produced these by the millions to arm their 100,000,000 man standing army.
