So I'm pawing over a new item the wife brought home from the FFL in Kotz, and its got some stamp, dang it, I cant decipher.....CAI import, Izvehsk made 1939, tight muzzle, nice bore, no pits, but used and taken care of, no number on the floorplate, with no 'D' but an SA and Finn stock, sweet trigger matching # and font bolt, # is not on knob, but were they ever on a 91/30?

So the letters along the front of the reciver....any clue?? L.P.Gar. sp1919

Just wanna get to know this guy a bit better first, then I'll try shoot it some, when I get time....

That is a very nice Finn-acquired/ Finn stocked Soviet 1891/30 rifle you've got. The letters along the side of the receiver look like those odd Latvian/ Lettland marks that show up every now and then. A cleaner close-up on "macro" on the camera might help. My sense is that is what those are. Probably one of the 91/30s supplied by the Germans to Finland during the Continuation War and then [SA] Finnish army property marked.

Nice one!
I agree.

There is a board member from Italy who has great insight into translating the Latvian markings - I'll see if I can dig out an old thread that he contributed to....
