    Its Chinese. SKS' made at Jianse arsenal (factory 26) prior to 1962 didn't have the Chinese characters. Your rifle was made in '58 according to the s/n.
    See "Chinese sks type 56 ID FAQ" thread in the stickies above for more info on the early Chinese SKS.

    1961 (6th year of production) is the first appearance of the '56type'(五六式) designation on the Chinese guns. The Chinese date info on this site is very outdated.

    For the most accurate, and up-to-date info go to: sks-files.com or chinesesks.weebly.com

    The serial number and arsenal stamp identify your carbine as a 1957 production.

    Nice catch!
