For the most part it is easy to tell where and when the gun in question was made because of the markings and our knowledge of the Russian small weapons. Two arsenals produced the SKS, Tula which uses the arrow in the star marking along with a plain simple 5 pointed star and Izhevsk, which uses an arrow in a triangle inside a circle as shown in the pictures below.
Izhevsk only produced the SKS for 2 years. In the mid 50's Russia started marking the guns on the left side of the receiver with a small star designating the manufacture at the Tula arsenal. These are generally considered by many to be the last run in Note the small star rearward of the serial number. Now comes the question.
When was the no date stamped Tula receiver cover gun manufactured? It would seem logical that it would be either late or early The receiver on these guns are not stamped with the small Tula star so it seems they would have been produced prior to that vintage SKS. Being that they are stamped with the star but without a date on the receiver cover would suggest they were made later then the stamped guns. The 3 guns that I have seen are not rebuilds since they show no rebuild markings nor do they exhibit any of the rebuild characteristics.

There have been no reports of the Model 59 with a A prefix to the serial number. In a new model was adopted and production was again started for the Yugoslavian SKS with the addition of a grenade launcher.
This new model was produced from to Letters were again used to signify the year of production starting with the letter D in and ending with C in In some cased many more than two letters. When rifles were sent back to the factory for service, the factory often re-stamped a year code letter on them. If it was sent back more than one you might find numerous letters.
