Default Two acquisitions from the latest road trip

Picked up a long barrel Maadi AK...too...its posted in the AK forum.

The standard SKS was complete with the exception of a sling. All matching. It looked new and was [0144] arsenal. Upon cleaning it was still full of cosmoline and the previous owner had fired it. Couldn't pass it up.

The other is a /26\ paratrooper. ALL matching.No cleaning rod, bayo or sling. I had the bayo and sling covered and they are installed as I am writing this.

Here's what they looked like when I hauled them in from the car:

Picked up two more SKSs this week...an unfired Yugo with serialed log book and an unfired Paratrooper.
Para's got a pinned barrel and is covered in cosmoline - arsenal was hard to read due to the grease and it's in the box in the car till I get home. Arsenal marking starts with a backwards D. Can't tell if it's a backwards D, P or not.
Really nice wood stock under the cosmo.
