Found in Novosibirsk, Russia. Liu Qinglin in Beijing, China identified it for me as it had no markings. At first I wondered how a K&E ended up there, but if you look at the end plates you'll see there are no adjustment screws, just 3 rivets holding the stock together. Unfortunately it did not come with a cursor, but dimensionally, a K&E will fit it. It is the same thickness, and length, but 1 mm wider, than a K&E 4092-3S.
