    I had one of those back in the mid '80's when there were almost no SKS and 7.62x39 was all but impossible to obtain. Blued and laminate stock, was a nice piece. They commanded a mere $150 or so...

    That makes more sense to me. I'd have a hard time believing that when rifle was made on Long Branch machines that Belgium took offense to machine cut differences.

    So what it needed then was a quick bead blast and anodizing like an AR receiver. I'm pretty sure there's a simple explanation for where it came from. The other parts are easy enough to get in...

    Like a large seal in the shower...

    No, the rifling is about perfect, is all I mean. Any minor pitting won't affect use. Most rust will shoot out and then come clean. I've shot far worse with good result.

    I wonder if it was originally Japanned and someone acid dipped it to try to get the "Paint" off it? That would eat the aluminum and account for the pitted finish.
