Chinese Type 56 SKS 7.62x39mm
The AK47 Rifle was developed by Mikhail Kalashnikov and introduced into Russian Military service in 1947 and fires the 762 x 39 caliber . Designed to be mass produced and easy to maintain in the field the AK proved itself in conflicts all over the globe and often called the Grim Reaper . The looser tolerances of the AK-47 allow it to work in dirty conditions with little maintenance . The Kalashnikov design has gained in popularity for those wanting a rugged & reliable home defense weapon or sporting rifle . The AK 74 rifle was the new evolution of the AK design and shoots the 5.45x39 round.

Chinese Type 56 (1956–): Numerous minor tweaks, including lack of milling on the bolt carrier, partially or fully stamped (as opposed to milled) receivers, and differing types of thumb rest on the take down lever. The Chinese continually revised the SKS manufacturing process, so variation can be seen even between two examples from the same factory.
All of the Type 56 carbine rifles have been removed from military service, except a few being used for ceremonial purposes and by local Chinese Militias. Type 56 carbines with serial numbers below 9,000,000 have the Russian-style blade-type folding bayonet, while those 9,000,000 and higher have a "spike" type folding bayonet.
