Default Latest Arrival from J&G

Here is the latest arrival from J&G Sales, a Hand Select - Matching numbers.
Serial number 3224861, all matching parts numbered 224861 /26\. MUCH less cosmoline than my Alby bolt SKS maybe only 40%? Finish in exposed areas is maybe 0 on the buttplate to 50-60 %, under the wood the finish is 80% or better I think. Wood condition is much better than the first Hand Select only one I received. Parts are in the degreaser now. A thought on the "less cosmoline" than my other SKS, and I only have one "Hand Pick - Non-Matching"to compare it to is they may have cleaned some of the cosmoline to verify numbers??? Normal to leave the date code number off when numbering the rest of the parts other than the receiver?

Thanks to all for the compliments! I was quite surprised, pleasantly this time, unlike the first one that has the gouge of wood missing and the Albanian bolt carrier. I really tossed the idea around of sending it back, until "Vlad11" sent me over to the SKS Boards and I got a little "education" about it. Back in the 1980's early 1990s I was an 01 FFL and sold the new Norinco SKSs. Even had one for myself, but never eally got into the SKSs. Sold my Norinco years ago and never thought I'd be buying another SKS.....until I found the quality of the military issue SKSs. Plus shooting the M59/66A1 and the M56 from J&G was such a pleasant experience, I'm sad to say, hooked! Garands and SKS's are my favorites to shoot! Gonna have to sell off some stuff to support the new habit and make room in the collection!

Looks like a score. Well done! This influx of C&R SKS will be the ruin of me yet, since #12 is on the way from Classic Arms and I'm conniving and scheming ways to get 1-2 more before they are gone......sigh

Century Arms on both of mine and did this entire group of SKS's I believe. My M59/66A1 is a SAMCO.

I read somewhere, but can't find it now, the side swivel was "designed by a left handed engineer to pi** off right handed shooters" Don't know if that's true or not though

Aghauler, checking out your Serial number that looks like a 1957 vintage rifle.

Finally got around to sending some rounds downrange today. It shot fantastic.

Functioned flawlessly without a hitch.

I just had to lift the front sight a turn and a half and it was dead nuts on.

The trigger is a little long and heavy but most are, ill work on that later. The

only problem i have is a little play in the stock fit, i need to shim the action a bit

These are really a great buy for a milled SKS. Most are non refurbed , matching

originals. I dont see this opportunity happening again, especially here. Im

thinking i should get one more before the ship sails

Vlad,
I just got a stock from Clearview Investments, I think you refered me to them. I requested a "no numbers if possible stock" which pleasantly is what I received in what I thought was VG condition. Buttplate finish is 95%+ and it had a side mount swivel. Upon further inspection I noticed some bubbling in the finish around the finger grooves, then I noticed the charcoal in the inside of the barrel channel from about the cross bolt to the front end of the stock. Looks like the upper end of the rifle was torched while in the stock! Too bad otherwise this would have been an excellent stock. My guess is people that buy these plan on refinishing them anyway, were it not for the charcoal this stock wouldn't need a thing but an SKS in it.

I was wondering about the condition of those. Charcoal in a stock doesnt sound good.

Maybe the rifle in it was fired untill it got red smoking hot?

Is the stock still serviceable?

I think I might be able to scrub the black of the charcoal out with Murphys Oil Soap? I threw a wire brush on the charcoaled area and it didn't seem to take anything off, the surface seems hard.
Its a very nice stock other than the charcoal issue, I'll see if I can grab a couple of photos and post them.

Here are the photos of the stock I received from Clearview Investments:
Exterior wood is pretty nice, no gouges or missing wood, very few nicks.
I just noticed the crack and repair screw to the rear of where the back of the receiver would be also just noticed the black and bubbily finish in there also! The butt plate looks new. You can see some bubbling of the finish in the finger grooves and in the barrel channel in the charcoaled area.

Hmm...that crack would bug me. You can see where they used a dowel/screw to repair it. Did they seal where the crack is with something or is the fissure just on the surface?

Looks like they may have glued it then run the screw into the wood, forcing material up and out of the crack.

If it is a good repair, you'll be fine but cracks in my stocks always makes me paranoid. Good luck.

Reply from Clearview is "most of the stocks have charing in the forward section due to the rifle being torched".
