View Full Version : Chinese SKS, how old?

Is there any way of finding out how old my SKS is?

It has a triangle stamp with the number 416 inside and the serial number is 29005XXX

To the best of my knowledge, there's virtually no way to tell when a particular Chinese SKS was made.

Now, if it was a Yugo SKS, the date would be stamped on the receiver, makes dating them very easy! :D:D

Oh well, thanks for the info. I just bought it to shoot anyway.
