We work hard to bring the best Firearms Forum! Butt Stock Markings China used both the side and bottom mounted sling swivels. Pretty much every model rifle Winchester ever made had one unit with that serial number. In some cases, it may be on the side of the receiver. The year prefix on this specimen is very well aligned with the rest of the serial number. First observation of the stock side sling swivel. Proof for this dating scheme is severely lacking. Tula rifles are marked the same way, except their arsenal mark is an arrow inside of a star.
Possible for some makers and not for others. I can't upload pics from my phone but this is what it has stamped on it. At the end of the serial number, there is a dash followed by two numbers. Underneath this, the number '63', followed by a Hangul character. The top one is a Chinese with a black bolt that was sent to Egypt at some point in time. I belive the numbers in the triangle are plant numbers, I was told 26,36, and 52 were the best because they were. In fact, the only complaint I can voice is the open-notch rear sight, which made it difficult to take a fine or fast sight picture.
Only thing missing is the mag owner is currently looking for it. Norincos aren't really considered collectible as they were standard issue Chinese military and police issue and were available several years ago at surplus stores in the U. The parts of these guns may come from any time period, but they were re assembled and re numbered exclusively for export. These import stamps were tastefully done, though the stamp on the receiver is large and can distract from the gun itself. Laminated stocks only had the serial number.
Some are only cosmetic, some have different stampings, some are shaped slightly different and some are just plain different. I have one myself, also a number matching Norinco chrome lined barrel with spike bayo. I had no such luck when I cleaned off the cosmoline. Sino-Soviet models also had the complete serial number along with acceptance stampings next to the side mounted sling swivel. Croats, Slovenes, Bosnians, Macedonians and others, who had been dominated by the Serbians since the 19th century, demanded increased autonomy and even outright independence. All models were stamped on the left butt stock.
In 1941, the German Wehrmacht invaded Yugoslavia and rather handily defeated the Royal Yugoslav Army. Always exercise due diligence before purchasing any product or service. Albania used a longer than usual hand guard and slots for cooling. Only the rather lame bayonet. These carbines are almost identical to the Soviet-Sinos with some notable differences. Everything else is there and has matching serial numbers. For this reason, it is still popular among hunters, and even is employed in many militaries today.
I then placed two combat silhouette targets on the 100-yard backstop and rapid-fired a full magazine at each target, using just a sandbag rest. My 5 digit serial number 11560 are all matching on the receiver, the bolt, trigger guard, magazine and stock. To aim the rifle grenade, the appropriate range V-notch on the sight ladder is lined up with the nose of the grenade and pointed at the target. This is a marking found on the right side of the butt stock. This person claims G10's were originally manufactured by Zastava Arms, possibly for commercial sale. Pics taken with my android at 4am, during a late night cleaning. They attempted to translate all the Cyrillic letters into their Roman equivalents.
If any of the photos in this post are yours and you explicitly do not want them shown, please contact me at Runningman. The wood does not look like Chinese as its really dark looking! Details If you look at the above pictures it is clear to see that the Albanian stock is much longer than its Chinese counterpart. The differences in weight and flight ballistics and launching blank charges means each type of grenade needs a specific range marking on the sight ladder. The 1969 one is plenty accurate with Wolf 122gr, I didn't have anywhere to bench it except over the roof of a car, but it did a nice group at about 30 feet. For example, the serial number 419998 indicates a manufacturing date of 1960. The parts match early Chinese with the nice milled work! You only need to type in the make, model, and serial number.
When the sight is folded down, it is locked in place by a serrated catch on the end of the gas tube, and moving this catch unblocks the gas system, once again allowing semi-automatic operation. Foreign Users: Put your Country and City for your location and also put a reason you would like to register. If anyone has a clue let me know. The Chinese learned that they did not need the hundred thousands placeholder in the serial numbers of guns produced at low output factories. Where the large arsenals could easily crank out 100 thousand rifles a year, it appears that the lower output factories struggled to produce even 10 thousand rifles over the course of a year. Let us know in the comments section below! This number indicates the year of manufacture. So my serial number starts with an 11 - so it is 1956 + 11 years or 1967 manufacture.
This is not always the case. Izhevsk rifles will have a marking with an arrow inside of a triangle, along with year of manufacture, on top of the receiver cover. But the operating components seemed to be milled hurriedly with lots of chatter. Unlock additional features, and fewer ads while browsing.
