This weapon is loosely based on the Russian SKS rifle, the infantry rifle that was quickly rendered obsolete by the introduction of the AK-47. Despite this, the SKS has gained significant popularity as a civilian hunting rifle, having been imported as military surplus in mass quantities to markets across the world.
I started with the base game This Machine mesh and removed the barrel, receiver, and operating rod before mirroring the wood stock and shortening it to carbine length. I then added various pieces from the legacy-content Chinese Assault Rifle, the upper handguard from the Light Machine Gun, and the bolt carrier from the Hunting Shotgun.
