I know Ted has said there are around a dozen Hex M38's known in the US. So, I am curious as to what kinda of common features they might have. Or just a little bit of a run down on your M38's features.

1944
Tula Barrel
1927 Tula receiver remarked to 1944; buffed Soviet Crest on top flat
M38 stock
Liner in front; Pressed SSE in the rear
Rearsenalled, recent Century Billboard on receiver
Stamped matching everything, remarked magazine, ground and matched bolt.

Interestly enough, almost everything is Izhevsk marked. Tula barrel and receiver and trigger is all I can find right now.
