haven't bought one myself but i've seen enough to say this... they are all refurbs so naturally the numbers will match and the rifles i've seen are nice... couldn't say about counterbored or not but i'm sure it's a mixed bag
I ordered two and They made it here to South Dakota in good shape.. They are refurbs Stamped matching and they are both counterbored.,. Both were 1944 Ishvesk and they both shot decent.. Decent for the price..
