    Here she is....got her at the show last weekend.

    sorry for pic quality.

    and for the question .... in the second pic: just below the barrell is a rod.

    it will slide right out of the stock. It has a threaded end inside the stock. It appears to be a cleaning rod.....at least thats what it looks like to me. Am I right?

    That be a cleanin' rod alright. Most, if not all commie rifles have a slot under the barrel for a cleaning rod.

    When issued, these rifles also had a little tube-style cleaning kit that would go into the trap-door in the butt; the kit had a jag, a brush, a wrench, and the outer tube could be used as a handle for the cleaning rod. It's easy to get your finger pinched in the trap-door, though, so be careful.

    thanks guys....I am going to be gettin rid of the GI wood stock and going black synthetic within the next few weeks. I can't wait. If any of you need the stock just let me know....I'll let it go for $20.00 including shipping. Thats just to pay for my time in case any of you want it shipped out. :)

    Way to Go!

    Oh, yes, those are FUN to shoot! I have a few.. put a 2x red dot sight (an Aimpoint) on mine... and it's a real rascal at the range. In my book, it's like a Big Boy's 10/22!:evil: Wahoo!

    Sure, it's not a target gun, not an assault rifle, and it's not a mighty fine deerslayer like a .308 or better... but like I said, a world of fun! I'm keeping mine.:D

    Hang on to the old stock!!!!! Some day you might regret tossing it.
    Does it match the #'s on the gun?

    Take the rod out and store it or it will fall out. The threads do not hold it in the gun, the bayonet did that before the bayonet lugs were cut off.

    everything you could ever want to know about the SKS can be found here:

    I agree, keep that wood stock. Refinish it if you can/want to.

    Keep the stock. It's only $20. The rifle will be worth more later with the original stock. Mark

    I wish someone made a non-tacticool, wooden stock with a folding butt for the SKS. Like the mini-14 folder:
