The laminate stock is what got my attention. Only ones with at the time as the Russian SKSs had yet to make here.

Israel captured tons upon tons of weapons and gear from the PLO during the invasion of S. Lebanon.
Seen pictures of semi dump trailers overflowing with AKs and other small arms.

Lots of cool a stuff was unloaded on to the surplus market.

I remember complete. Inert sagger ATGMs w/suitcase launchers, AK/AKM kits, working LPO-50 flamethrowers....l


My RPG-7 is an Israeli capture, as well as my laminated /26\ Type 56. Got a nice PLO chest rig as wells.......those were the days.
The top 2 in my pic are also IC. The top one has sand inside the stock and the other has the dark gritty shellac understood to be a refurb from a mideast country... it is also a 1955 with a Д suffix to the serial number. (It's number 4 on that page.)

I guess I would have to say Chinese since I've owned so many of them over the years.

Probably later production commercial Chinese
They are light, handy, and rugged. The Yugos and military type SKS from other countries get pretty heavy after a while, even with fiberglass stocks.

I have one Norinco commercial, one Type 56 Chinese, and one Yugo. ALL of them are my favorites..
