    Just got myself a '33 Tula M91/30 and it has this funny "circle k" mark on the barrel. Anyone know what it means?

    I believe it is a point of aim proof but it may be something else because I've never seen one that big.

    Ya, point of aim , but that one is extraordinarily large. Maybe means something else

    That is my rifle < Kevin send it back to me pronto mister .
     
  5. Isn't Circle K a chain of gas stations/convinience stores? Never knew they issued Mosins. :)
     
  6. issued to the "circle k" security force?
     
  7. is that an ex sniper? Open the bolt and look at the breech, if you see 2 plugged holes it is.. I almost always see that make on the sniper rifles..

    That's pretty early for a Tula sniper. It is not accordingly marked with the Tula sniper stamp either a СН СП above the star. But, since it could be very early it's possible it was not marked. There are however some interesting marks on the receiver, and that circle K stamp is rather large. The triangle stamp is interesting as well. Looks like a nice rifle though!

    What does the point of aim proof mark mean?
     
  11. that the bullet hit where it was aimed is the most simple explanation. the more "correct" version will be along shortly.

    It means it is guaranteed to puts them where you aims them.
     
  13. what was the guarantee? a case of vodka or a trip to a far away vacation spot? like siberia?
     
  14. I was thinking the same thing. The 25 in the triangle is pretty odd.

    Does the concentric 00 accuracy mark mean roughly the same thing as the circle K?

    Doesnt the triangle 25 have something to do with it being german capture or something?
