The SKS was developed in the Soviet Union during the Second World War. It is a gas-operated, self-loading rifle. The weapon’s most distinctive features are the tubular appearance of the receiver, which ends abruptly at the neck of the stock, and a folding bayonet, which is permanently attached to the barrel.
