Really hard to find them with the early stickers still in place. The original price is still stamped at the bottom of each Polytech sticker..$19.95!!

    I agree sealed Chinese 100 round drums with original paperwork are getting up there in price. The Norinco 1911s are built like tanks. Great Chinese copy.

    Did anyone see how early the Polytech double folder is? The serial number is a 1985 number which is one of the first years they were imported. But look how low the serial number is. Does anyone know if they started at 1000?
    You should shoot a PM to member JoeZeta. He has a couple of serial #1's

    "Who would pay $250.00 dollars for a Cheap Chinese rifle" If I heard that once I heard it a hundred times back in those days,my hunting buddies said I was crazy, had a 250 dollar underfolder I used for a truck gun back then, I just wish i would have hung on to more of them, This fellow had good taste and smarts

    Unbelievable. Congrats on the pickups.
    I saw one of the receipts says "Type 81 Drum AK". Why would it say Type 81? Thats a totally different gun or were they interchangeable?

    Beautiful lot and WOW, what a score. And what a friend to let you snag them from them!!!

    That said, you might want to at least think about also blotting out any and all serial numbers. As I'm sure you've seen Google and others are supposedly data mining them. Better safe than sorry!!!
    I'd rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6!

    Be sure to look for the original 10 round magazine to go with the SKS56. The 20 rounder only hurts the value. The DP rifle is worth more with the original matching 10 rounder.
    The switch from gunshots to injections is a sign that China "promotes human rights now," says Kang Zhongwen , who designed the Jinguan Automobile death van.

    It has the original 10 round mag serial numbered to the rifle. In addition there is a pre ban 20 round star mag. Top condition all matching DP marked SKS.

    All the chinese 75 round drums except for the RPK drums were made for the type 81. The drums also fit regular type 56 aks. Most of the instruction manuals say type 81. If you look at the rear locking lug on a 75 round drum they are notched for the type 81. The Chinese had thousands of type 81s in the import pipeline when the ban hit. ATF and dealer samples made it in but that was it. Now China sells them to Canada.
