I need some help regarding a newly bought PE MN rifle.
I'm quite sure it's a repro scope and mount fitted, but damn they look good. Do you have any ideas how to identify repro PE from the originals. Usually there should be proof stamps on the mount, right?
How do I identify if the bolt is new made? It looks a bit rough, but if it's a repro it's good. (actually, the repros seems to be even better that my bolt)
I'm aware that a PE would probably have a hex-rifle to it, that's one concern.. The rifle is dated 1938 but not "C" or "CH".
The whole rifle got the same number, but I think it's refurbished, but it don't have the usual "box with diagonal line". But it got a "diamond" and the numbers "55".
My guess is; Refurbished M/N with ebay bolt and accumounts.com scope and mount. But now i see the adjustment "blobs" are different between my scope and accumounts...
Is it a difference when zeroing a original and repro scope?
Please tell me if you need more pics.
If you are kind I'll post pictures of my SVT38 (non refurbiushed)
