I know this was answered at one time. What do you look for that confirms the Mosin Nagant sniper rifle is genuine?.....I just can't remember but I know it's been discussed.
Wayne a lot of the Izhevsks will wear their scope numbers on the left side of the barrel shank. But there are also a lot of legitimate PUs that have had those numbers completely scrubbed off. In these cases if you look closely sometimes you can usually see the scrub marks and maybe a tiny trace of an old number.Be suspicious CAI imports. Lots of 38 and 39 Tulas were converted by them. If it is an Izhevsk it should have the scope serial number, stamped or penciled, on the left side of the barrel in front of the receiver. If any of the features Ol listed it is not correct.........except for the scope cover threaded. That happens all the time by dealers, etc.
Wayne I just shot you a message. Hope to see you next month at HarrisburgAs always you are correct. I have not seen a lot without any numbers but it does happen. Of course maybe all of them are in your refrigerator gun safe. I have only ever laid eyes on one or two Tulas in the wild also. You guys have them all gobbled up.
Have not had any PM's. PM has not been working for crap lately........or maybe it is just me. Not sure about Burg show. Off to Florida for spring games and then back. Our season starts the following weekend but I haven't worried about the schedule yet. Not sure where we are that weekend. I had a spendy February, but it was a couple of nice things, so I may be hiding under the porch. Better do my taxes to make sure I don't owe the federal leeches anything this year. May have to sell blood or a kidney.Wayne I just shot you a message. Hope to see you next month at Harrisburg
