I'm doing a gun transfer for a friend over at my house for an acquaintance who knows I like old WWII guns. He brings over this old gal and at first, I thought it was just a 91/30 until I got a better look at her. It's a 1930 Tula on barrel shank and the tang reads 1930 Tula as well. Typical Finn shims and barrel channel sanding also. There are no import markings on the rifle. He received it about 15 years ago from his father-in-law who apparently purchased it in the 1960's. What I found "odd" is the presence of old "type 2" sights in 1930 and the Russian hammer/sickle being still present. There is also a larger boxed SA above the regular SA on the left side of the barrel shank. The bolt has two numbers one of which matches the number on the barrel shank. Any thoughts as to what this rifle might have originally been? Is she just a plain old first year 91/30 Finn capture? He wants to sell also but I don't know what to offer him.
