Other reviews (to include DocTacDad's and TLBS's videos) suggested there might be problems with the rifles, but mine was in great shape. Bluing in generally pretty good, though there was a bit of rust on the barrel. The stock had no cracks, and while it was pretty heavily soaked in cosmoline, the wood was still in great shape. I'm still in the middle of refinishing the stock, so I haven't taken it to the range, but I'm sure it runs just fine. Just to note, my rifle did come with a cleaning rod.
I am very pleased with my purchase so far. It seems I got a VERY gooey 1963 model M56 SKS. I am in the middle of un-gooey-fy-cation at the moment, so I do not know how, or if it shoots very well. However, it seems that all numbers match, there was a cleaning rod & other accy's The bore looks OK, and I am only having a problem dismantling the gas tube & handguard (big surprise). Four star rating is provisional: if it works OK, it stays. And only because it looks like it fell out of the ugly tree. NOT like it fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. OR used as the Type 56 that they used to test ugly sticks that week. I've seen both kinds.
For what I was looking for, I was not disappointed. The rifle is not fit for the parade ground, and that's just fine with me. After thoroughly cleaning out the cosmoline, I took it down to the range. It functioned perfectly. My first shot was at a 2 liter soda bottle, filled with water. At 75 yards away, that first shot took it out. The rest of the day was just as good. I'm looking forward to converting it to bullpup with the kit made by Shernic Gun Works.
