sorry if I duplicated any I should have renamed the files chronologically.. PRetty sure the tang is 1895 tula just like the barrel :) Maybe it's the original barrel/receiver. It is fin capped with the boxed SA and the hanger sling swivels, round finger spliced stock, etc. It also has the Ka3 sight leaf.

Well for starters the "SA" is for the Finnish Army. So it most likely a Finn capture/acquired. Looks like a Izzy made trigger with the arrow in triangle. Definitely a Tula hammer on the tang.

Cool rifle. I see similar markings on these guns and it's probably just inspection marks etc. nothing strikingly odd to me.

the only marks that I'm unsure about are the marks on the underside of the barrel and on the side of trigger guard without izvehsk arrow. I know what the barrel shank means, the izvehsk arrows, the SA mark, etc as I mentioned above. The one's I'm most curious about are the ones on the underside of the barrel and receiver.

I think a lot of the markings on the SMLEs are known. Doesn't seem like a lot of the i section markings on Imperial era Mosin are known. Not sure if the records got destroyed, but I don't recall any of the stamp's purpose being identified--at least the ones on the underside of Imperial era Mosins.
