Lately I've been focusing on Spanish Civil War rifles, and especially the already complied list of 1936 and 1937 dated SCW M91/30 serial numbers. There are some pretty strong patterns that have developed, and I want to take this a step further. So I'd love it if people could post the serial number of their 1936 or 1937 dated M91/30's and the history of that rifle based on what they can tell. I'd be interested in whether that rifle stayed in the USSR and was refurbished, was captured by the Finns, went to a Soviet satellite post-WWII, or anything in between! I feel this will help with my SCW research and help define possible serial number ranges a bit more. If anything it will be very interesting to see where these rifles ended up, even if no real patterns are developed!

So please post your serial number and a brief description of where your rifle seems to have ended up and any other special characteristics. Thanks, and your submission is most appreciated!

Even though my rifle is in the SCW survey, I'll say that there's still a possibility it was not an SCW rifle. It's a 1936 Tula, no import markings, all factory matching, non refurbished rifle #218086. Pics are in the SCW survey, post#35.

Mine is a 1937 Tula, post war refurb in a laminated stock. Likely Ukraine due to refurb mark. SN: 140887

Thanks everyone! I appreciate the submissions and I started the actual list in my first post. Hopefully the list will expand and we can get a better idea about the serial number ranges of SCW rifles!
I've got a few of these written down at home. I'll notify of them when I get a chance. Great idea!
