Looks good! It looks like it has a refurb stamp on the barrel, but doesn't show a complete refurbishment, or maybe it's just the pictures?

Very, very nice! Thanks for the excellent pictures and presentation of your acquisition! Congratulations.

I really like the 1920s 1891/30s aka. "ex-dragoons" myself. I've got a 1921 Izhevsk, a 1924 РСФСР Tula, 1927 Izk., 1928 CCCP Tula, 1929 Tula, and 1930 Izk. Very neat old Mosin you've got there. 1920 Izhevsk receiver as you know

What we were curious about was whether there is a seam an inch or so behind the front sight showing where a reamed out barrel section with the front sight attached was slid over a turned down portion of barrel. There are a few m91 infantry rifles out there that were converted to 91/30 in this way.

I've got what might be an ex-M91. No maker on the barrel, 1941 added, 1919 Tula receiver. Barrel visibly turned down at the muzzle.

As for the original 1923 Izhevsk: Great rifle. The muzzle has been counterbored, which is unsurprising given the sheer age of the rifle, no?

Izhevsk made dragoon length rifles from 1893, while Tula only built them from 1923 to 1932... So the only shoe-in "ex-M91s" turned into 91/30s are the pre-1923 Tulas.
