East german karabiner sks

East German, and Albanian SKSs bring a higher price than those of other countries. Soviet and Romanian carbines have largely reached price parity, with Chinese carbines somewhat lower in price. The stock on the Albanian versions being of a slightly different manufacture and being rarer due to low production numbers. There were approximately 18,000 Albanian SKSs manufactured during the late 1960s until 1978, and of those, approximately half were destroyed. Most of the remaining East German SKSs had been sold/transferred to Croatia in the early 1990s.

The SKS  rifle is a Soviet semi-automatic carbine chambered for the ×39mm round.  The SKS was designed in 1943 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. Its complete designation, SKS-45.  In the early 1950s, the Soviet military took the SKS carbine out of front-line service and replaced it with the AK-47 yet the SKS remained in second-line service for decades.  The SKS was widely exported, and was also produced by some former Eastern Bloc nations as well as China, where it was designated the “Type 56 Carbine”, East Germany as the Karabiner S ,  in North Korea as the “Type 63” and in the former Yugoslavia as the M59/66 rifle.  Other countries such as: Romania, Poland, Albania and Vietnam have also produced their local versions some with slightly different lengths.
It is still used as a ceremonial firearm today.

The  SKS  is a Soviet semi-automatic carbine chambered for the ×39mm round, designed in 1943 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. Its complete designation, SKS-45, is an initialism for  Samozaryadny Karabin sistemy Simonova, 1945  (Russian:  Самозарядный карабин системы Симонова , 1945; Self-loading Carbine of (the) Simonov system, 1945). The SKS-45 was manufactured at Tula Arsenal from 1949-1958 and at Izhevsk Arsenal in just 1953 and 1954, resulting in a total Soviet production of about million carbines. In the early 1950s, the Soviets took the SKS carbine out of front-line service and replaced it with the AK-47; however, the SKS remained in second-line service for decades. It is still used as a ceremonial firearm today. The SKS was widely exported, and was also licensed for production by then Eastern Bloc nations, Romania and East Germany, as well as China, where it was designated the “Type 56 Carbine”. The East German version was known as the  Karabiner S , the Albanian as the Model 561 and North Korean as the “Type 63”. The SKS is popular on the civilian surplus market as a hunting and marksmanship semi-automatic rifle in many countries, including the United States, Canada, and New Zealand. Its age and numbers make it relatively inexpensive to purchase, and steel cased ammunition is one of the least expensive center fire cartridges currently on the market. The SKS was the second firearm to be chambered for the ×39mm M43 round, with the first being the RPD.

There is some debate as to the relative quality of each nation's SKS production; The quality of Chinese SKSs varied significantly even among new rifles with some having screwed in barrels, milled trigger groups and bolt carriers with lightening reliefs cut into them being at the top end and cheaper rifles having pinned barrels, stamped trigger groups and slab-sided bolt carriers. Yugoslav types are generally considered to be better made than Chinese, yet the Chinese types typically have chrome lined barrels while the Yugoslav versions do not, resulting in some Yugoslavian rifles having bores in considerably worse condition than even the cheapest Chinese SKSs. East German, Russian, and Albanian SKSs bring a higher price than those of other countries, the stock on the Albanian versions being of a slightly different manufacture and being rarer due to low production numbers. There were approximately 18,000 Albanian SKSs manufactured during the late 1960s until 1978, and of those, approximately half were destroyed. Most of the remaining East German SKSs had been sold/transferred to Croatia in the early 1990s. The interchangeability of many parts has resulted in rifles on the market that are a mixture of different parts of varying quality, sometimes including parts from different countries. Such rifles are usually referred to as "parts guns".
