I love my SKS the stock was soft from age but when I got the cosmoline off and got to metal you could see the previous owner took care of it. Good shape and only some surface rust that came off with oil and a cloth where the cosmoline did not fully penetrate into the stock. Much better than my yugo SKS.
I wish I had gotten two.

the SKS was in decent shape. Rather expensive The rifle should have been about $100 cheaper for the condition. But I really like vintage rifles and I'm okay with it.

I purchased this Chinese Type 56 SKS one month ago. It took me a couple of weeks before I could get to the disassembly and cleaning of this rifle. When I first looked at the rifle at the local FFL, it was beautiful. It was in GREAT condition, no rust, no holes or chips out of the stock, all the numbers matched on it's pieces and there wasn't a huge amount of gunky cosmoline on the thing. It was love at first sight.

Anyway, I asked a local gun dealer what he used to clean his Russian SKS's and he said cold use OVEN CLEANER. Disassembling the rifle was pretty easy for a first timer. The over cleaner worked very well. I highly recommend it. I put the rifle back together and it was just as easy. The dark marbling on the wood grain is magnificent! However, due to the weather and illness, I couldn't shoot my SKS for another two weeks.

Today-2/17/13-I finally got to fire this piece of history. Oh my goodness.... It shot flawlessly! It has very little recoil. AND, . . . I like it better than my AR-15. I can't believe I'm saying that, but it's true. You aim it and it shoots where you point it. Now I must save money because I want another one.

Bud's fast service had my rifle in the hands of the local FFL dealer in California in less than a week. I love using Bud's because of their speedy service and good quality items. You can trust them 100%!!!

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...

When they said the stock was a little beat I didn't expect chunks of the wood to be knocked out of it. Bluing was almost completely gone. No rust though due to the bath of cosmoline. But still fine overall just very ugly to look at.

Picked up from FFL on 12/26. Gun was better than expected. A little beat up and covered in cosmo. Completely disassembled,cleaned and refinishing stock. Firing pin was froze up,be sure to do a complete cleanup on this firearm. Arrived on 12/24 and was shipped quite fast with the current rush on things. Very satisfied.

Stock was beat to hell and back and soaked in cosmoline is an understatement, But the guns metal is in very decent condition the bluing is great. What i do recommend doing is taking that firing pin completely apart and cleaning it i ran 20 rounds through mine it ran perfect, and is now my project gun time for the tapco stock and 20 round mags to make this what the public calls an " assault " rifle. Pistol grips are Scarey not ergonomic!
