    Freedom is not free. Some will perish to preserve it for the many. Just as our Forefathers did before us, we must take up the battle and not waver. Victory is our only option.

    Huh, I'd think the headspace would slowly open on a design like the SKS with the stamped receiver. Or do they have a machined part between the locking shoulder and barrel?

    Yes they have a trunion of sorts that is riveted in.

    Those were imported as complete rifles, not parts kits.
    The Chinese developed these as a method of reducing the cost of manufacturing the rifle

    seems like stamping is common practice to cut costs and to get out more quicker its a shame more of these werent imported i wonder how many of these were actualy produced again it falls into how they kept records
    and if you can actualy acsess them
    still a nice little chunk of history!

    I have heard that only 250 of these were imported. It was a quest of mine to find one.
    The rifle is mine, and my quest is complete. I have alot of other irons in the fire and that is why I am letting it go. I had hoped someone from the boards would have wanted it to complete their collection. It will stay on GB until someone takes it, or I decide to keep it for my collection.

    i wish i had the coin and a ffl worth it for 1 of so few imported
    who knows how much any of the others go for-more than i can imagine
    pieces like that are a hard one to let go out of your collection-unreplaceable
    good luck with it!

    It would be interesting if this type of presed metal receiver could be produced for the VZ-58. I asume that this SKS is a rather thick pressing.

    A stamped receiver on a Vz would be sacrilege. It would take as much machine work to make the trunion as it would to make a receiver. The stamped SKS was an attempt to make it cheaper and quicker to manufacture for export. The idea failed and they went back to the milled versions.
