    Danny, I think this one went through refurb: look at the boxed X stamp on the barrel, above the date: this marking is associated with postwar refurbished guns (probably near Ukrainian arsenals). Also, it misses the two block letters (AH) on the s/n's, which were originally all stamped in this full way (2 letters and up to 4 digits).
    I have a refurbished Izhevsk '42, AK block, with these same features.

    Thanks for pointing that out Ziomanno!

    regarding the serial numbers I just assumed that they didn't have to be full length serial numbers, just part of them. It also didn't look like they were scrubbed and re-stamped. So I bet the serial numbers on the small parts are post war re-stamps?

    Luckily I didn't pay anything extra for this one, was just an odd one that stuck out at me. So just a average Mosin that had a lazy worker lol.

    Pretty sure. Here is a sample of full lenght serial numbers. Another point to watch for is the font of the #'s: they have to be identical to those applied on the barrel, and I see some differences regarding "2" and "3".
