This rifle was a direct copy of the Soviet SKS carbine. The Type-56 was used in huge numbers during the Vietnam War by Viet Cong forces. Even though most movies and documentaries show Vietcong forces using the AK47 rifle, the Type-56 was actually issued in larger quantities to the guerilla soldiers. We also have the M-59 version that built in the former Yugoslavia that features an integral grenade launcher and blade bayonet.
