I think the three chinese symbols mean type 56.
I would assume that is a military grade sks, vs
a throw together for import into the USA.

You might also look to see if it has a pinned barrel
or a thread barrel (this comes in two flavors, a long collar
or a short collar)

I'll have to take a look at mine when I get home and compare. I know for fact that the chinese symbols mean "weapon type 56" I had a friend who was from china translate it a while back. I know I traced mine and found out the year it was made, etc. I'll have to dig up how I did that.

A side note certain years were spike bayonets and others were the blade so you will be able to at least narrow it down as to when it was made.
