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%!!!
