So... I expected cosmoline, but HOLY CRAP, it was just caked and gooped EVERYWHERE. Between time restraints from having a job and just getting tired of dealing with th esmell and the sheer amount of the stuff, it took me about a week all together to get the SKS fully disassembled and cleaned out. Once the receiver was separated from teh stock, I was able to see that the stock was cracked all the way thru the wood on the "pistol grip" just behind the receiver. Not too bad though, a new one was only about 20 bucks. And the "head" and nut of the cross bolt were rusted out, so I got a brand new one of those for about 30. All in all I spent about 600, but I can't really complain considering the things wrong with it can be expected from an old war rifle that sat in storage for decades. A good 95% or more of the finish on the metal is perfect. There is a small bit of pitting on the rear of the receiver where it sat in the old stock, most likely due to water getting in the crack. And there are a few dark spots I can't get off of the bolt and carrier. Both the cleaning rod and bayonet were intact, which actually kind of surprised me, as I've seen quite a few AKs and SKS rifles that were missing these things. The serial numbers all match, which doesn't really matter to me, but is still nice to know(except now the stock has no serial number). I got a chance to take it to the range, but only at 25 yards, and not for very long. I was able to dial in the sights well enough to see that it's at least decently accurate, and from what I can tell(and I'm no expert), the barrel looks absolutely pristine, like it's never or barely ben shot, despite the absolute hell the original stock seems to have gone through. In addition to the crack, it had a LOT of dings and dents.
TLDR: looks and shoots great, has a little bit of pitting due to cracked stock, which was replaced, along with the cross bolt, but a vast majority of the metal looks PERFECT, including the inside of the barrel. I'm very happy with my purchase.
