"The Soviet-designed Sinonow semiautomatic carbine, a gas-operated, integral box magazine-fed weapon equipped with a folding blade bayonet, is now obsolete in the Soviet Army, but is used by most of the other Eurasian Communist countries. This weapon has been manufactured in East Communist countries. This weapon has been manufactured in East Germany as the Karabiner-S, in the People's Republic of China as the Type 56 semiautomatic carbine, in North Korea as the Type 63 carbine, and in Yugoslavia as the M59/66 rifle. The country of origin can be detrimined by the markings. The Soviet and East German weapons usually carry the year of manufacture and the serial number on the front left of the receiver; the PRC weapon have the a symbol (meaning Type 56) located there, and teh late PRC Type 56 has a spiked bayonet. The North Korean weapons have "63" stamped into the receiver cover. The East German version has a hole through the stock for attaching the lower end of the sling; the others all have sling swivels.

Firearms Policy

How to Buy a Firearm or Ammunition

Federal firearms laws prevent the sale of a weapon from Red Dot Arms, LLC. directly to an individual in another state (we are located in Illinois). We must ship your firearm directly to an FFL Dealer near you. The steps to follow are:

  1. Order your firearm online using our secure shopping cart. If you know the FFL dealer you are going to use at time of order placement (not a requirement) enter his name and address into the 'Ship To' field.
  2. Find an FFL dealer near you that will accept the transfer of the firearm for you. Most sporting goods stores and pawn shops will provide this service for a small fee. Also, gun clubs, shooting ranges, etc. may provide this service to you. If you don't know which FFL dealer to use in your area, put a comment in your order and we will help you locate one near you. We have access to a large list of dealers in the USA that will gladly handle a transfer for you. Most dealers charge around $25 for a transfer. You must confirm the transfer with your local FFL dealer in advance.
  3. Next, have the dealer send us a copy of his signed license if we don't already have it on file. To check whether a license is on file, contact us. Please Note: It is now legal for us to accept a faxed or e-mailed copy of your dealers license! 
  4. Make sure the dealer knows the firearm is coming from Red Dot Arms. If you used a dealer that we already have on file, call him to let him know that a gun for you is on the way.
  5. We will send you an email when the firearm ships, which will include a tracking number.
