The attached pic is of some Chinese 7.62x39 ammo I have laying around. My Arsenal SGL21-73 will be here soon and I don't want to shoot this ammo through it if it's corrosive. The headstamp is 31 92. I'm assuming the NC on the case means noncorrosive, but want to ensure that's true. Thoughts?

i doubt it means non corrosive. its probably just an inspection stamp. still neutralize the salts if you want to keep your gun looking nice

I would assume any surplus ammo is corrosive.

31=Unknown Factory, Peoples Republic of China
92 = more then likely the year of manufacter???

Assume its corrosive, though I would clean the gas system and barrel out after you are done shooting.

I'll gladly trade you round for round for Barnaul ammo. I love the Chinese stuff, corrosive or not!
