A classic M91/30, made at Ishevsk in 1936. It was definitely used in WWII, although the stock is probably a post-war refurb.
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
How can I be sure if its a postwar stock? The butt plate have same nr as the rest.
Ok, thank you.
I will take a good look on it.
As Mo said, you have a Mosin M1891/30 made in 1936 by the arsenal in Izhevsk, Russia.
You'll find serial numbers on the barrel shank (the photo you posted above), near the bolt handle, on the bottom of the magazine floor plate, and on the butt plate. Are all of these numbers the same? If so, great! If you have numbers that have been crossed out or scratched in (electro-penciled) that match, that's normal. Mis-matched numbers are also normal. Remember, these rifles were made to win wars, NOT look pretty.
The hammer & sickle in wreath marking is unique to the Izhevsk Arsenal.
The (n) marking is a provisional black powder proof mark...
The arrow in triangle is a post 1928 Izhevsk mark...
If you see any other markings that you're interested in, post photos. Chances are they are just quality-control proof marks and aren't very important.
As Mo said, these rifles were often sent to arsenals to be rebuilt and repaired. It's not uncommon to see these rifles with repairs to the wood:
After World War II, A LOT of these rifles were put into deep storage (soaked in rust-preventing grease) just in case World War 3 started up... You have a rather rare mark on your rifle. The 1 in a triangle ( /1\ ) mark signifies that after WWII your rifle was used by East Germany.
ooh, very nice to know that. I didnt know. So with other words its a nice ww2 mosin nagant, that makes me happy
