In this section I will try to show the differences between the same part from different
arsenals, years and countries. The only purpose of this page is to help make the collector aware that differences do occur
and about anything could be possible. These are ALL from my personal observations and not from any books.
SKS hand guard latches.
The various pictures below show the hand guard latches from various makes and models of SKS's. Currently
these are the only differences I have noticed. Some are only cosmetic, some have different stampings, some are shaped
slightly different and some are just plain different.
