If it is a sporter, it was made/imported between 1989-1994. This was the period when "evil" looking Chinese rifles were banned from further import unless they were neutered, 1994 is when Pres. Clinton banned Chinese AK's altogether.

The serial number is usually a good indicator of what year.

According to CDT "Labanu, Inc. SKSs were manufactured by Norinco in China, and imported exclusively until 1998 by Labanu, Inc., located in Ronkonkoma, NY."

The OP asked WHEN it was built, he already knows where and who built it.
