    Default SKS Rifle In Combat

    Does anyone have pictures of SKS rifles in combat settings? (Apparently, "SKS" is "too common" for this site's search engine to work with.)

    Thanks!

    i dont think that it is an SKS... it seems to be chinese Type 56 carbine? It is similar to SKS and use AK style curved magazines.

    (not Type 56 assault rifle, which is copy of AKM or AK47)

    Or it is some kind civilian AK for posers? That buttstock looks too civilian....
