The model designation was Simonov Carbine SKS - Model 1945 or "SKS- 45" for short. The 3 guns that I have seen are not rebuilds since they show no rebuild markings nor do they exhibit any of the rebuild characteristics. It seems yet another mystery in the unending mysteries of the SKS!!!
Below is a Russian website on the development of the PM Makarov pistol with information that coincides with information on the "Letter Dated" SKS year of production of these rifles.
Most of this information is/was gathered from various forums and from my own observations.
I do not guarantee that this is 100% accurate because as we all know, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE WITH THE SKS.
Some Albanian guns have no year reference numbers on them.
I would tend to believe these would be either prior to 1967 or after 1979 with the latter being the most reasonable.
All the SKS's produced for North Vietnam seem to have the same serial number sequence and range. After the weapon producing factories were bombed most of the weapons were supplied by the Chinese.
China was a huge supplier of SKS's to North Vietnam and many of the GI bring backs are of Chinese origin.
These three North Vietnam guns have the same Arsenal marking signifying from left to right 1963 manufacture, 1964 manufactures and 1965 manufacture. They made a newer one that should not be confused with the early ones. We don't know of an accurate way of dating these other than using features.These characters translated to Type 56, the model designation of the Chinese SKS were found on later SKS's. There is much current discussion going on as to the accuracy of this method.These guns were referred to as a Type 56 Carbine by the Chinese. The way you figure this out is by adding the first digit to the year 1956. some are stating that the 1 million series starts in 1958 and moves forward from there, your guess is as good as mine as to which is 100% accurate.This may be why we see limited numbers of them in the world market today.These early SKS's had no Chinese characters stamped on the receiver and some had no factory 26 symbol.
