    On norinco's, one can date the gun using the first digit (or first two digits depending on how many digits there are) and adding that number to 1956, for example an S/N in the 2 millions (2,xxx,xxx) is 1958, one in the six millions (6,xxx,xxx) would be 1962, or in the 10 millions (10,xxx,xxx) would be 1966.

    Does it have a spike or blade bayonet?

    Is the stock original or aftermarket? Has it been messed with in any way other than the removal of the bayonet? Same question regarding the paratrooper model as well..

    Only Factory 26 rifles can be dated in such a manner.

    The best thing here is to post pictures of the rifles including closeups of the receivers where the factory markings are, the rear sight markings, and of the barrel lugs (or lack thereof).

    I thought Factory 26 = Norinco and so that method of dating did apply.

    Norinco has many different factories and codes, plus many Norinco rifles don't even have factory codes on them at all. It is most accurate to say that unless a rifle is specifically marked with /26\ it cannot be accurately dated with the above method.

    Back on toipic...Stitchclimber-bad cellphone photos would be better than none.
