Has anyone deciphered the meaning of this mark, and how often does it appear? Is it considered rare?
I guess the real question is: would you grab one if you saw one? The price is around $169
On that particular variety of Molot, yes, it's a newly manufactured chrome lined barrel. That model is an intermediate length between the old 91/30 and the carbines. From what I understand, they used some parts (bolts, maybe receivers) from old military Mosins.I wonder if those are new barrels?
Really?Unknown, but much less common than the MO stamped rifles.
