Big difference in a Norinco SKS made of there in the 1950's and a knife from over there in the 2000's. I generally agree with the Chinese crap, but they got it right on this one. I also have a Romanian WASR-10, and it won't hold a candle to the SKS. They are both Russian designed weapons, but the craftsmanship out of the older Chinese rifle is far superior to the Eastern-Bloc stuff. If you can even find a Russian SKS, I'd buy it. They're hard to find, since they are the original...
