    WTK: Stamped Fixed Stock Type 56 in Vietnam

    When looking for pictures of chinese aks used in Vietnam, the overwhelming majority of what I see are Milled Fixed Stocks and Stamped Underfolders.
    Were the Stamped Fixed Stocks not used much or have I just not found the right pictures.

    Really want to get some pictures for my personal collection/reference, especially the trunnion. Is the front trunnion marked exactly the same as 56-1 just without the "-1"?

    Thanks

    I think they used all kinds but the one it seems like you see the most of are the milled fixed-stock spiker models.

    Very few stamped receiver variants were in Vietnam, think I've seen photos of 1 or 2 over the years. Stamped receivers were relatively new to the Chinese military around that time so they kept most of the newly built rifles in country and sent the NVA all of their old stock milled receiver variants as aid.

    Yours is an export model but it is not an M22. If it was then it would be marked "M22".
