It's not jut post-war refurbs. This one is Finn'ed.I don't recall ever seeing a stamp just like it, but there are many esoteric refurb markings on Mosins, and you just never know what will turn up. Industrial processes tend to have confirmation marks/inspector's marks attached to them, but the meaning of most of these marks from decades ago is probably forever lost to history.
I have a '43 Tula undrilled CH, and it's a great shooter. There's a lot of conjecture about why some Tulas were marked as snipers and never drilled, but I don't think anyone knows conclusively why it happened.
