You know you might be right:confused:
All I have been working on is the bolt and what he said I havent had the gun in my hands.
It's my friends gun so he just sent the bolt.
I called him and told him to send pic.
I need to see the gun.
He just sent a pic to show me the numbers
I think he could have a AK not a SKS.
He sent this.
I Need to see more.
Now if I can get this from a e-mail to here.
Mike

I think this is a AK!
Good call zant !

Yes, Mike, Its an AK type 84S chambered in 5.56X45.. or 5.56 NATO... or .223, call the round what ever you will!.. But its an AK none the less... you have a picture of the L/H side of the receiver! (or the side opposite the ejection port)

Sadly, I wanted to originally ask you if it was a drop breach lock or a rotary lock type bolt... but I figured you knew what you had.... oops! take a vacation Mike! Sounds like you need it!

I should have known.
Just reading what he wrote and not thinking when I saw what was wrong with the bolt I just put it down and went on to the next thing and well
I screwed up is all I can say.

Now that I know what I have :rolleyes:
I have a question.
As you can tell I am not that familiar with these guns.
So here is the question.
This AK needs a new bolt so far all I can find is a bolt with the floating firing pin style the one I have is the spring loaded style.
Are they interchangeable? can I use the floating pin style in this gun?instead of the spring loaded style.
