Here's mine, only had it a week. It's my first Mosin, and my second milsurp (the other is an 1893 Turkish Mauser, 1938 rearsenal.)

1936 Tula hex, S/N 31282. No matching numbers, buttplate is Izhevsk. Stock appears to have sanded sometime in its life, no markings anywhere except a very faint one on the right side. The sling slots show some wear, maybe from long-gone wire swivels, or just hard use? Stamped "Made in USSR" on the receiver.

Here's what's puzzling me: it is also import marked "CAI ST ALB VT" on the underside of the muzzle end of the barrel, and the s/n is restamped on the left side of the receiver. I read elsewhere that the Guardia Civil used Mosins up into the early 1960s. S/N's weren't required on receivers until 1968. Old inventory that Century "updated' after the law changed? And that faint mark on the stock looks like a Russian rearsenal mark. Perhaps Century restocked this when imported?

I emailed Century Arms. They tell me my rifle was imported in 1997 but don't know from where.

Conrad from the SCW Mosin website says the Made In USSR stamp doesn't match other known examples.

Then there's what looks to be a Soviet refurb mark on the stock...

In short, I now have no idea where this came from!

Do you have a photo of the rear sight base?

All the SCW Mosins I've seen do not have the pinned rear sight base like the one in your photo(see the rear sight photo in post #191 above). That was usually done during the later Russian refurb process. I would suspect someone may have later added the "Made in USSR" marking, perhaps to boost it's value a bit, but that is just speculation. I have never seen the old "Made in USSR" stamp in conjunction with another import marking (CAI in your case).
Here is a link with more info...https://scwmosin.weebly.com/
Check out the non-refurbished rifle section for the rear sight base story.

I have a SCW Mosin to add to the database!

1936 Izhevsk, SN 166230 (Receiver, mag floor plate and butt plate all matching)
MADE IN USSR on the receiver, no other import marks.
Bolt SN 193139.
Pre-war stock, Izzy cartouche on the stock, no flaming bomb.
Shrouded front sight.
Original hand guard.
Wire hangers both intact.
Now, for some pictures: Top is my 1919 Izzy ex-dragoon, bottom is a 1957 arsenal 26 SKS, and the middle is the 1936 SCW 91/30

1936 Izhevsk M91/30 S/N 152192 - Not much to tell, bought as the remains of bubba, barreled action, cut to 22 inch with odd front sight added, but has the 5 stamps on the side of the barrel shank.

1936 Tula, sn 0350. There is a figure at the start of the sn that looks like a "7". I am not sure if it is a number or a figure. The front sight is a tall stepped blade. The stock has been replaced with a later one. "made in USSR is stamped on the top of the hex receiver. P1010771.JPG P1010770.JPG No import mark.

I know this is an old thread but not want to start a new one. I picked up a 1938 Dated Tula with the 5 punch marks on the left side. The rifle has hangers and a globe sight. Bore is really rough. No USSR markings either. My understanding is that any rifle dated 1937 is not a SCW rifle.
