I picked up this original condition 1936 Izhevsk 91-30 in a trade from a friend. It has been in his collection since the early 1980's and has no import markings. The barrel, bolt and magazine match. The stock and handguard appear to be a wartime replacement, the butt plate number doesn't match and the handguard has steel end caps. The finish has turned to patina, the bore in good shape but was rusted when my friend got it. The serial number is 5 digits without a 2 letter prefix unlike most Soviet era rifles I've seen.

Looks nice. I like the non-refurbed mosins, and those are the ones I try to buy.

Ted,
Thanks for clearing the serial numbers prefixes up for me. The rifle came out of a veterans collection originally but my friend didn't get any info with it. It makes me wonder what path it followed to get here. If only it could talk!
