1941 Izhevsk M91/30 with the Max Geltz factory mark in front of the serial number. Repaired or assembled at the factory? Not much to be found on the Internet except a small history here, http://www.encspb.ru/object/2804001818?lc=en and it mentions "After World War II of 1941-45 began, the Company was renamed into Plant 810 and manufactured rifles, carbines, shells, and Maxim Leningradsky, the first heavy machine-gun made in 1942."

You will not find anything valuable about this factory in internet except general facts. Documents are stilll sitting in archives.
I wouldn't be sure at 100% in description of factory by link you posted. It definitely produced Maxim SMG's, but currently information about production of rifles and cabines is not confirmed. Repair - yes
I would say more, production of rifles and carbines is not mentioned in 1942 year report. In addition that they are not mentioned in the report for the end of 1941, most likely they were not produced at all - there was no sence in rifle production in 1943 and 1944, because since january, 1943 they can be supplied by railway.

I think there is a sence to post a link to previous thread, some documents were posted there

There is no evidences of of scrubbed old serial number. So looks like serial number was stamped at blank barrel.
