A question about 91/30 refurbs......at what time frame were these refurbed? Where any refurbed 91/30's used in any conflicts. I have a 143 Ishevsk that has a refurb mark on the barrel,in a pre-war stock and she ain't pretty. It is as a farmer would say "Rode hard and put away wet." This looks like it was used hard, when I took it apart there was a lot of crud, some dead bug bodies and dried grease. There is no import bilboard on the left side of the receiver, but has a small hard to see import mark on the barrel. There is also a mark on the left side of the receiver that is "42", very similar to the Finn 41 mark.
