This is an Albanian SKS that is all matching with the exception of the magazine floor plate. It shoots 7.62x39 just like the Russian SKS.
There is not a lot known about the Albanian SKS rifles since their importation into the U.S. a couple of years ago. Some reports have the total number being built at around 17,000 rifles with all but 6000 of them being destroyed. It is believed that they were manufactured from the late 1960's to 1978. The Albanian SKS is designed after the Russian model SKS 45 but the Albanian version has some unique features such as the AK-47 style charging handle and the extra long upper handguard. You don’t see this SKS up for sale very often, this is a one time chance to own a rare rifle!
