SECTION 9 In this section I will try to show the differences between the same
part from different arsenals, years and countries. The only purpose of this page
is to help make the collector aware that differences do occur and about anything
could be possible. These are ALL from my personal observations and not from any
SKS BUTT PLATES
SKS BUTT PLATES The butt plate serves as an access to the cleaning kit and also
acts as the shouldering device. No access hole, no butt stock cleaning kit. The various pictures below show the butt plates from various
makes and models of SKS's. Currently these are the only differences I have
noticed. Some are only cosmetic, some have different stampings, some are shaped
slightly different and some are just plain different.
