Yooper John's SKS - Battle rifle of many nations

SECTION  28:  In this section I will try to show the use of the SKS in different countries. The only purpose of this page is to help make the collector aware that differences do occur and about anything could be possible.  Thanks to Roman D & Ronald Chan who supplied many of the pictures and descriptions.
