In July I put this 91/30 on layaway, thinking it was an ex PU. I picked it up today and noticed two extra holes on the receiver. I dont know how I missed the one in the chamber, but the other one was covered because the bolt would not open all the way due to a lock. The serial numbers on the receiver are clearly lined out and legible. The tang is stamped 1943, but it looks like a possible CN underneath the wood on the barrel. Also, something very small is peened underneath the rifle serial on the receiver. Possible this is a Tula barrel on a Ishevek receiver??

From what I have been told, 1943 is a common year for sniper rifles. How common are the ex PEM's? Thanks.

Your rifle appears to be a Ex PU rifle and not a PEM. A PEM screw and pin set up looks like this.:

Yep, it's an ex-PU. As shown in AKBLUE's photo above, the ex-PEM rifles have the hole/pin pair centered on the receiver opening.
