    Larry Vickers' Chicom Type 81S

    To my knowledge, this is the first Type 81S that's been photographed and details put online. This is an EXTREMELY rare rifle, and we're lucky to be able to take a look at it.

    The rifle is a very interesting mix of SKS, AK, and SVD features. After handling it, I think it's not anywhere in the same league as a Type 56, but it's a very unique piece.

    This particular rifle now resides in the Vickers Collection, my thanks to Mr. Vickers for the opportunity to photograph it.

    Thank you Tim and thank you LAV. That is a very exclusive look at that rifle, surely not to be seen outside of museums in the USA.

    Odd, though, to have a safety shaped like a trigger and inside the trigger guard.

    Great pics. Thanks Tim and Larry. I assume this is a post-86 machinegun?

    There was an article in SAW about this model a little while ago.

    Couple questions:
    Is this a full-auto version?
    Was this imported at one time as a semi-auto gun?
    How does LAV get all these cool guns? I am assuming he has a SOT or something like that.

    Spooky

    I hate you Larry, I really, really hate you!











    Just kidding!
    My brother saw Deliverance and bought a Bow. I saw Deliverance and bought an AR-15.

    Very sweet. SKS like gas piston in an AK like that.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Tang Wenlie designed that bad boy.

    I'll bet that sucker has better follow-thru than an AK because of its short stroke piston.

    Actually, no, it's one of the VERY few (we're talking single digits) imported as semi auto sales samples.

    Spooky.....it's a pretty small community of collectors of Vickers' caliber.
