So, I saw the buddy of mine that was selling his sks. russian, tula armory, 1953. Bore is IMMACULATE, all numbers match. it's got a little blemish on the side, but nothing I can't live with. Crappy pics, but it's all i've got right now. it, plus 1200+ rds of 7.62 was $300 bucks. can't wait to get it to the range.
