Yep Mr Charles was still using them only remember seeing CHICOM.Ford Prefect,
They were a very prevalent arm with "Charlie"(VietCong) in 1969 and 70, Most of the SKS's were CHICOM, but you would occasionally find a European version.....Most NVA were armed with the AK-47.....
Kind of like one person driving an Iroc and another driving a Trans Am...Interesting Ford. Did you notice that the SKS is along side with an AK 47 in both of those pictures? Kinda like they were "supporting" each other with the AK in the light machine gun role.
No, never met him.. Only 41 years old.. I understand they were much more dangerous than they appeared.. Just commenting on his appearance.. not that I wouldn't consider him a threat..Guess you never met him. By the way this appears to be one of the exhibits they built.
It is amazing what a half-starved 110lb person can do with just a lamp shade, old rifle, pajamas, flip-flops and a whole lot of grit.Here's a pic of Charles, who appears to be barely able to hold it up, nevermind shoot it..
