many questions: would you guys consider an 18 sesty an imperial or soviet gun? i know the czar was gone by then and this arsenal was close to the revolutionary action. my 18 tula is imperial scrubbed with a tula hammer added (and F and G stamped). my 19 tula is clearly soviet marked and i know that 19 (i think) showed two different soviet era markings,depending on which commies were in charge at any given time. my 19 izhevsk is also clearly a soviet product. love to see an 18 (or even 17) izhevsk. any ideas on 18 sests?-markings;marking differences,if any; who was in charge of production and when? any input at all. thanks in advance.
