The PUs from Samco came from Yugoslavia and don't have the original shellac on them. The original Russian shellac was done much more sparingly and put on better than the after WW2 arsenal slop jobs. These will have a much different look than they slop jobs.
Some Finn marked Russians will have original shellac on them and some will have had it removed and have a oiled look to them. Some Finn made rifles like the M28 and M28/30 will have a varnish finish.

It has been said here many times that the original finish for a Russian made rifle was shellac.
