I also Have a Dream! Martin Luther King, Jr. Certainly, my cause may not be as grandiose as his or others like him, but there is at least a similarity. King spoke of equality; my dream is for the same.
The tubes do have some pitting in them and could use a good scrubbing.
Most of the examples seen in the U. The model designation is Type 63 Carbine and were produced in state arsenals. Not sure on how to tell the year of these weapons as no definitive pattern has been observed. The only difference between these two North Korean SKS’s is the second digit which may be related to the year or the arsenal, not sure which. The Arsenal is usually marked on the top of the receiver cover and all the pictures I have seen have the same stamping. That is why I am led to believe the first 2 digits have something to do with the year.
If someone else knows more about these I will post it, so let me know. Notice the two below are only numbers off.

Purpose[ edit ] The primary purpose is to be a handy all-in-one projectile, right quantity of propellant, primer for a shot. In modern, automatic weapons, it also provides the energy to move the parts of the gun which make it fire repeatedly. Many weapons were designed to make use of a readily available cartridge, or a new one with new qualities. The cartridge case seals a firing chamber in all directions excepting the bore. A firing pin strikes the primer and ignites it.
The primer compound deflagrates , it does not detonate that is, it rapidly burns, but does not explode. A jet of burning gas from the primer ignites the propellant. Gases from the burning powder pressurize and expand the case to seal it against the chamber wall. These propellant gases push on the bullet base. In response to this pressure, the bullet will move in the path of least resistance which is down the bore of the barrel.
After the bullet leaves the barrel, the chamber pressure drops to atmospheric pressure. The case, which had been elastically expanded by chamber pressure, contracts slightly.

This was after CNN desperately drummed up some experts saying how easy it is to convert a semi-auto AR into a fully auto version.
The idea is to make it as mechanically difficult to mount full auto hardware in a semi-auto receiver as it is to just make a new receiver on a mill.
In the nearly thirty-five years that we have promoted shows throughout the Northeast, in New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, and including Long Island, we had very little difficulties with show venues.
Even though Springfield Armory used a two-piece firing pin and other slight design alterations, the was in fact a Mauser design and this resulted in the U. By January, over , rifles produced.

Original or arsenal reconditioned?
At the time, many American gun owners were leery of the inexpensive guns because the quality was unknown. Years later, however, the Nornico SKS has a reputation for being drop dead reliable and has passable accuracy. At one time, you could also buy a thousand rounds of 7. Even today, it is an economical choice when compared to other calibers and makes a great mid-range choice for plinking or even self-defense.
Shooting the SKS is easy because the weight and large bolt absorb much of the felt recoil, although for many, the crude sights hinder accurate shooting. SKS rifles generally have a 10 round fixed magazine that can be loaded via stripper clips. Larger capacity fixed magazines with questionable reliability are available as well. It does take practice, however. There is no question that the SKS, in any form, lacks the refinement of the AR or many other western designed combat rifles.
What it lacks in refinement is more than made up for in ease of use, reliability and by the fact that it is so much fun to shoot. Because the SKS has a short barrel and stock they are easy to maneuver in a house and make a great home defense rifle in rural areas. However, the risk of over-penetration due to the velocity of the 7. For those accustomed to high-end rifles, the SKS might seem a little crude, and truthfully, it is.

Currently I make my home, with my wife and a couple of children, in Blacksburg, Virginia. I came by it honestly; I acquired it with age. Those are the things that interest me. And, for reasons I hope to make clear over the next several months, those are things that ought to concern everybody else, too. What a success story; an American classic. First, a little history… Think for a moment about another American classic, the Ford Edsel. You know, the Edsel? The byword for commercial failure?
