A few years ago in Canada Marstar were giving away a free Chinese SKS if you bought a crate of 7.62x39mm ammunition (about 1100 rounds). If I recall, the ammunition was from somewhere in Europe.No. It was a direct copy of the Russian one with folding bayonet. The sporterised one could take the AK magazine. This was 1995 and you could buy the average SKS for about a hundred dollars and ammunition was for pennies. You could buy surplus rounds in cans for very small money.
