Here's a picture of the importer .I looked up my sniper rifle, it was 2010 Jan - Gander Mt and they had "PW Arms Richmond WA" import marks on the barrel. With tax it was $200. That is when the store around the block F&F had Mosins for $99, but no decommissioned snipers.
I assume the normal 91/30s at Gander with matching bayonets at $160 also had a similar mark? My book notes indicate my sniper rifle did not have a garbage package nor bayonet- just the rifle. I was there when the store guy was taking the rifles out of the box and putting them on the rack. I got the best of the batch- a lucky day. Back at that time I was Tula"hex" nuts. I gave a squat about a bayonet- they were a dime a dozen- like tent pegs. The rifle did come with a nice brownish cotton sling. Well used not new.
Some crates had new greenish slings , new unissued ammo pouches, and matching bayonets, but the tool kits varied in color and style. At the time most were Izzy and round receivers. I only liked Tulas because I collected them by year.
So to the op, gunbb, is that rifle a Tula?
Is the import mark PW and on the barrel?
Well your "Tons" haven't been seen by me and I've been at this for 50 +years. I certainly have seen "Tons" of 91-30's with and without bayonets and none were matching. You must live where "Tons" are common !!Tons of these were stamped to match. I have a dozen or so. Nothing to see here.
I have one of Gary's original matching light refurbs myself. Found it on the used rack of a big box outdoors store a few years ago. It's a 1943 Izhevsk.Gary Cole is the only person I ever knew who actually imported a couple of crates of original matching rifles with their original matching bayonets. I had ten of them at one time, all ‘43-‘44 Izhevsk rifles. I sold all of them to members on this forum. They were all museum quality rifles, likely unfired.
