There is a perfect example of a restamped Mosin on the Trader right now.It is advertised as stamped matched,but the parts have been obviously restamped at one point.The style on the receiver is original,but the other parts have been ground over and stamped with a more english type numerical stamp.

Who knows when it was stamped.Maybe at a refurbishment?Maybe an attempt to fake a rifle as being all original?

I have some Mosins that have the original Russian style on all the parts,and I also have some Mosins that are definitely force-matched by grinding and restamping with a different style.

Of course matching,Russian style numbers are more desirable,but they are not as common as to what's been turning up lately.
