SKS section 4

SKS - Battle rifle of many nations.

SECTION 4
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 bayonet lug.

The various pictures below show the bayonet lug 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.
