I went to Big5 two weeks ago and picked up a stepped tang high wall 1942 Tula 91/30. Not that I needed a 15th 91/30 for my collection but I bought it for the pre-war stock that was a perfect match for a 1938 Tula ex-pem that I have. I swapped stocks and planned to take it to the gun show this weekend to sell or trade. But as I look at it, I notice that the barrel and receiver have had nothing done to them. There is absolutely no signs of refurbishment, like it was just taken off the line and put in storage. No refurb markers, no evidence of scrubbing or polishing, has original lathe marks, no corrosion. Barrel is very good but dark grooves, smooth action, smooth trigger.
