Default Ghost SKS - Make for BOF 961 form

I was sure this question had been asked already but could not find it.
I recently picked up this "ghost" SKS from an out of state seller. I have a C&R and COE so now need to register it with our CA overlords.
The BOF 961 form has a "Make" (manufacturer) box. What do I enter? Norinco?
It's a 5 digit SN (184xx). The receiver, stock, trigger guard, and magazine cover match. Bolt and bolt carrier match each other but not the receiver. The dust cover is also 5 digit but non-matching.
This was a bit of an impulse buy but fairly priced and, in true SKS fashion, it eats anything and keeps on going.


The cleaning rod must not be original since it does not fit.

Does it have an import stamp? Could you use that?

Your bound book would use the importer as the manufacturer correct?
Should be the same with the 961 form.

For guns like this I use the country of manufacture. I would register that with CHINA as the make. When I dros'd my Norwegian M1914, we just used Norway. Finland for my Finn rifles regardless of Sako, Tikka etc.

I started doing that after I wrote Sestroryetsk (M91 Mosin) as the make and got "Russia" on the confirmation letter

It has a poor dot matrix import stamp near the muzzle. Looks like IO.

I'll try CHINA and see what happens.
Thanks for the info fellas.
