1944 Tula
All numbered parts are matching except the scope, serial on scope has been
scratched out and it is dated 1953. Mount is numbered to the rifle but can't find
any Tula markings on it. No scope number on the barrel. Only the buttplate number
is without prefix. All parts that are marked, appear to be Tula although I haven't
completely disassembled it. Optics are clear, bore is crisp and shiny throughout
with tight muzzle. Buttstock is dated 1944.
Sorry for the lousy pics, will try to post more as time permits.
Very pleased with this purchase, and a huge thanks go out to all those at RGuns
who made this possible, your efforts are most appreciated.

If you folks notice----most every one of these from R Guns are really/really nice!


The above example is very common refurbishment on the Tula's.
Although there where some variations in the Tula's, most where refurb'ed just like this one.....

Dont sit on the Fence people--they will be gone much quicker then you think!

Nice one!

Beautiful stock, really nice to have the star and correct year on it. I wonder why they scratched out the scope number? These snipers are going to present us with many questions to be answered, I think! Crunch crunch continues....... It's a long way from Michigan to Calif, maybe the BBT got a flat? Congratulations FredX

It appears that all of the Tula's had the mount matched to the gun and not the scope to the rifles serial number and thus were lined out. An oddity in this lot as all Tula were matched this way.

If the one I bought looks like yours, I will be extremely pleased. I like your pics. Nothing like good gun porn!

edit....

Do you notice any difference in the trigger or the stock / receiver relationship compared to a regular 91/30?

I am Very pleased with this purchase! Only difference I've noticed is the trigger, once you take up the slack (not much) you're there, no creep. Hope to get it to the range this weekend. :D

Oh man. Seeing these I just could not pass up the chance to buy one. I really shouldn't be spending this but heck...it's only money right? Not sure when another batch of these will get imported. Well, called them up and emailed them a .pdf of me FFL as I was on the phone ordering one. Pretty easy really, tell them you want one, give them you CC info, and wait till the truck comes. No fuss, no pick and choose. I cannot wait. Luckily I live one state over so the wait won't be much.

I live two away, so it shouldn't be a long wait either. Its the wait that I'll be incurring while I wait for the "all clear signal" and make my drive to Vic's house, so the GF won't dicover my purchase. muahhh hahahahaha

PU scope with with cartouches scrubbed away.

First of all, I would like to congratulate to all happy owners of R-Guns snipers.
Nextly,I saw a PU scope that had serial number and cartouches scrubbed away in the same fashion as fred_ex's. Now I know why they scrubbed original serial number, but what would be the reason for scrubbing away all manufacturer's markings away?

The original scope number on a Tula's barrel shank is uncommon and a plus. Good find on that one mjmd. That is the second from these rifles. Glad you got it.

I just got back from vacation so I missed the boat on these rifles. Sounds like some really cool ones are coming up. I feel some better that no 42 Tula came up but missing the 47 hurts a bit. Congrads to its new owner as well.
