On a roll now, picked this 36 Tula up on the hunch that it is of SCW heritage. While it has none of the definative features of a SCW rifle it is a typical non refurbed mix master, no import mark, has a SN that is only 224 off of a known Tula SCW 91/30, and has a rather odd finish on the Izhevsk stock it is in, but not the hand gaurd. The finish has been on the rifle for a very long time and the rifle has had some heavy use after it was applied as evidenced by the wear on the finish ( see pics). I am intrested in hearing what everyone thoughts are on this rifle.

Is it parkerized??

Nope its got a lot of light surface rust on the trigger gaurd, sling slots and even the bolt handle. It appears to have been sitting in someones garage or barn for a long time.
