    Default 1940 91/30 Mosin Nagant Identification

    I recently purchased my first Mosin Nagant for a fairly reasonable price ($90). As far as I've been able to tell It's an Izhevsk, but I was wondering if anybody could help with some of the other identifying marks? Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the Info! Forgive my lack of knowledge, but what is meant by "Standard H&S"?

    The 'hammer and sickle in a wreath' is the Izhevsk arsenal production mark from 1928 on-the triangle with arrow inside is the mark for post war refurbishment by the same arsenal-would also usually have other refurb marks on stock and action as well-if you're interested in learning more about the type history, maintenance, markings, extra equipment etc I would suggest getting a copy of 'The Mosin Nagant Rifle' by Terence W Lapin-an inexpensive book but jam packed with useful info published by North Cape.
