I knew I wasn't seeing things, the Chinese did make an SKS with a sheet metal receiver.
more stuff than I ever knew about different SKS rifles
I have been looking at them more lately, I don't feel bad about the one I have at all, seeing what $300-400 will buy you these days. Mine is a 1967 26 armory type 56 SKS, most all original. Compared to other Chinese arsenals and some other countries, the quality of mine seems considerably better than many.
