I got this not knowing much about it until I started reading up on it. I gather its a Bulgarian contract M95 long rifle in original 8X50 caliber. There is a vent hole drilled into the bolt head. The numbers on the barrel and receiver match and I can just barely make out a couple numbers on the stock which may also match the others. I can't tell for certain if the stock finish has been messed with or not. I have searched the web pretty thoroughly but I can't find much about the value of one of these. I don't want to sell it, just curious if anyone here can give me an idea as to it's value. I bought it for $125. Thanks for any help, I'm kind of out of my area here. (The serial number is 2978 D).

.. There is a vent hole drilled into the bolt head...
Nice! A corresponding vent hole should be on the bolt body and its absence means bolt body isn't from a Bulgarian contract rifle. Drilling a hole through it won't do - Bulgarian bolts have specific stamps, a small lion and a "circle B".

And yes, please, let me know if you want to double your investment!

Or would you prefer to quadruple your investment?

Bulgarian long rifles in their original chambering can bring big bucks, even with a replacement bolt!

GREAT FIND!

Warmest regards,
