Some mis-info here?

The base, screws, capture screws, and post on that base sure are clean for a 1938 artifact, the cyrillic letters for a 1938 tula bother me and the stock cut is not factory(which is not a big deal). I like the star on the base and believe it was probably original. I would not buy that rifle but then again I have passed on a ton of legit stuff because I am less than smart at times.. No disrespect intended here but imo the base was not numbered to the rifle.(I collect finns) Bases were hand fitted to mounts. I should not be permitted to look at rifles which are in better than battlefield condition and mess up other peoples conversations with bad info about kosher vs non kosher. lol.

think you are missing the point were the bases marked with the scope numbers or rifle numbers on the PEM mounts the 00 prefix could be the scope number but the Alpha prefix never seen scopes with the two alpha prefixes.

Paul.I agree I think I am missing the point too. I do not believe the bases were matched to the rifle or the scope. I admit before hand I could be wrong. i have three battle field unrefurbed pem 1939 mosin side mount rifles with what I believe are their original bases and they are not matched to a scope or rifle. They all have either two letter prefixes in original tula font and three numbers or just three numbers. I believe they are matched to their mount not their rifles or scopes. Waiting politely to be corrected... or confused further
