    Look at the stamp closer on that one. You'll see there's six - same number of points on opposite sides, if you look closer.

    I REALLY love those israeli capture markings. If I ever build another russian clone, Im gonna put one of the Israeli star capture markings.
    Did the israeli's ever capture any Yugo AK's and put the star on it?

    The time line should be adjusted slightly, the type 1 AK's were made until at least 1951.

    Re: Russian Type 1/2/3 Rifles

    I had a 1954 Type 2 so they were not stopped in 1953. Believe I still have the stub. It had some Type 3 parts that bore original serial numbers so there was overlap.

    Re: Russian Type 1/2/3 Rifles

    Yeah, there are also T2's made in 1955.

    The very best dating i've seen on these various types, at least in any commonly available Western publication, is that Cutshaw/Shilin book, Legands and Realities, they seem to be spot on. In fact, it's a dang good book overall. American/Russian collaboration.

    Did the Type-III have a trap door in the buttstock?

    Re: Russian Type 1/2/3 Rifles

    I also have a Type 2 Underfolder kit with a Type 3 barrel assembly and some other Type 3 parts. In addition I have seen 3 other 1955 Type 2 reciever stubs with Type 3 barrels. I figure early in 1955 they were running out old stock T2 receivers.

    In addition, I have a 1951 T2 kit with a beutiful T1 barrel and T1 top cover.

    Re: Russian Type 1/2/3 Rifles

    I have a matched T2 1951 dated kit with a T1 barrel assembly and bolt carrier and solid wood furniture, a matched T2 1954 dated kit with all T2 parts and laminated wood furniture, and a 1955 T2 AK47S matched kit with T3 barrel assembly and laminated wood. The latter by the way is in the same Yu#### serial number range as the 1955 in the above pictures.

    Type3 often marked with it. Letter index - last symbol in number similar year of production.

    Use russian alphabet:

    1949 ?
    1950 ?
    1951 ?
    1952 ?
    1953 ?
    1954 ?
    1955 ?
    1956 ?
    1957 ?
    1958 ?
    1959 ?
    1960 ?
    Added:

    1961 P

    NOTE: The majority of this code listing ('57-up) is pretty much verified by all sources. Some of the earlier years, maybe less so. We do want to thank ptica for his original post.
