    Hi Alex, I'm like you and try to find out all the info I can about my rifles. Like Ade said, I've never seen anything on Russian small arms assignments. Heck they didn't even keep very good records on their soldiers unfortunately. Some of the American made rifles, such as the Garands and Springfields, you can look up what division or regiment they went to but that's it.

    I am unaware of any nation's military that kept such records, except the U.S. military.

    I have been able to trace the lineage of all my M-1 Garands, carbines, model 1911 pistols, and model 1917 bolt action rifles.

    I even contacted a couple of the vets who carried the Garands, and one of my 1911's
