Mosin nagants can still be found pretty cheap. Though I would bet about 95% are post war refrubs. So I Thought some people may like this. Here is my 1942 ISK Mosin Nagant. That was sparred the standard refrub post war. All numbers matching stock is correct war time production, though no date that I can see (worn stock, so I imagine the date cartouche was simply worn away). Bueing is thin all over. Very rough machine marks all over, that were not poslihed out post war.
Still import marked on the safety catch of the receiver, and under that barrel. Imported by some company in Monroe NC if I remember correctly.
Bore is very poor. But I still rather have one of these than I refurb.
Looks like it just came off the battlefield... Minus our stupid import marks.
