Very interesting rifle indeed. The SN 9897 is the translated serial prefix and number from the Russian CH9897 to the English SN9897. Don't normally see 91/59s in that condition with a patina and wear on the metal like that. I like it. It's got some good character. It does appear to be in a wartime stock though.

SG summed it up in post 6 pretty well. There's really not much known about these still, even though they have been a known model and rifle for quite some time now. Would be neat to see a breakthrough on the 91/59s. Guess we are still waiting for the secret Soviet weapons documents cache to be discovered in some long lost Soviet bunker with Stalin's taxidermied cat.
