Chinese Pinned Barrel SKS vs. Chinese Threaded Barrel SKS
Other than that what are the differences? From what I understand the wooden stocks don't interchange but the "jungle stock" does? Is there any real accuracy & just general quality difference? Should I look at it the same way as milled-threaded AK vs. stamped-pinned AK? I have the option to get a nice/like new Factory 636 SKS & the guy said it was a pinned barrel. Ive probably had 15 different SKS rifles but they were all Russian, Yugo or Arsenal 26 Chinese, never a pinned barrel. Thanks for all you guys input, NorincoCall it...........

The most accurate Chinese SKS I ever owned had a pinned barrel. Other than that, can't help much .................

In my Chinese SKS's I prefer pinned barrels, I too find them more accurate. The threaded and pin barrel SKS's take different stock whether wood or the red fiberglass.When your smiling the whole world smiles with you

I've a "militia-build" carbine with a pipe that is both pinned AND threaded into its receiver, so it must be the most tight shooting rifle of the type ever made !!!
Yeah, I wish. Unfortunately, its rear leaf sight is non-standard.
Finding a substitute for this part (for a Type 63 Automatic Rifle ???) has been a low priority and so the girl is a safe queen.
Buy a pinned barreled Type 56 Carbine with confidence, Norinco.

I guess Im gonna trade my VKT M39 for it, nobody wants to buy the M39. Also I guess a nice example of the SKS would be at least as accurate as the average M39 & alot more practical in a scrap.Call it...........

When speaking of accuracy with an SKS (much of this is ammo choice and optics/open sight choice dependent), one is talking about a very accurate 2-3 MOA versus the average 4-6 MOA. Match grade they are not.
My most accurate is a threaded barrel /26\ Paratrooper at under 2MOA, followed by two pinned barrel under 3MOA, then the 25 or so others that I shoot following somewhere thereafter up to 8MOA.
So, pinned versus threaded? Toss up.

Best one I have seen was a pinned barrel Paratrooper, it would shoot about 1 MOA. It flipped us out, must be the short barrels on those things with less whip. My AMD-65 will outshoot RPKs at close range too with the 12" pipe.Call it...........

the prevailing wisdom used to be that threaded was better than pinned. I don't hear that so much anymore.

it,s alot like the pre-64,s and post-64,s winchester model 70,s. i have both and they both shoot,but the pre-64,s are built better or so they seem to me. eastbank.

The most accurate I have is a threaded barrel. 1964 Chinese Security Force issue.

I have two Public Security Force rifles that both perform equally well. The top is a pinned barrel, the bottom is an earlier threaded barrel version.
