Technical specifications: The Russian military surplus SKS has a conventional carbine design with a wooden stock and no pistol grip. Most versions are equipped with an integral folding bayonet that hinges downward from the end of the barrel, and some versions, such as the Yugoslavian-made M59/66 variant, are equipped with a grenade launcher attachment. Like the American M1 carbine, the Russian military surplus SKS is shorter and less effective than the semi-automatic rifles that preceded it, notably the Soviet SVT series and the American M1 Garand. 

Contrary to popular belief, it is not a modern assault rifle. It is because it does not meet all the criteria of a true assault rifle, although some variants come closer to the definition. It cannot fire selectively, and the basic design does not have a removable magazine. Some variants of selective fire occurred in the People’s Republic of China; however, the basic design of the Collectible Tula SKS 1952 is semi-automatic. 

The carbine’s ten-round box magazine feeds from an extractor clip (see below), and bullets stored in the magazine can be released by depressing a magazine latch (thus opening the “floor” of the magazine and allowing the bullets to fall) and located in front of the trigger guard.
