PM sent. Is this a C&R?

I’m not aware that you can tell the date of manufacture. There is no date anywhere on the rifle, so I don’t think so.

It is a Norinco "Sporter". I bought one back in 93. I think they were brand new manufacture. It also lists Norinco, Pomona, so I'm sure it isn't C&R eligible.

They are great reliable rifles. Why did you take the spike off? What if that coyote charged you? :D

There is a table with Sino SKS dates by serial number. The table does not cut and paste, click on the link and goto the Chicom section.


Chinese SKS's will code the year of manufacture in with the serial number. The number(s) in the million's placeholder of the serial number represent the year of manufacture. Unfortunately, there is a LOT of inconsistency regarding the numbering convention of Chinese SKS's. There will be some with letters tacked on to the end, some with only six digit alpha numeric serial numbers, and some with Cyrillic characters thrown in. If you strip off the trailing letter and if your numbers are still in the millions, the letter was most likely added to the serial number by the importer for control reasons. If there are Cyrillic letters involved or the serial number is only four digits, you have a Sino Soviet rifle made in 1956-57.
