CIA Chinese Type 56 SKS 7.62x39mm 20" 10+1
by Kirk H Date Added: Monday 14 January, 2013
I love Buds but this gun is rough. There is rust on the butt end of the receiver, trigger group, and magazine that can't be fixed with a little steel wool. Almost all of the blueing is worn off, and the stock is going to take a lot of work to rescue. I took the gun completely apart to remove the cosmoline and found that the gas piston extention was frozen in place. After I pounded it out with a hammer and a small steel rod, I noticed that it was pretty badly bent. This is a great example of why you or a gunsmith should always inspect any used firearm that you purchase. Firing this weapon in the condition that i received it in would have most certainly resulted in a dangerous failure of the gas system. I wanted a project gun, but this feels more like raising Lazarus...
