    What do the letters on the front of the serial numbers mean? Are the some kind of date or manufacturers code, or do they just replace a number?I have a 48a that starts with a V and a 48 that starts with a cyrillic letter that looks like a K. On the left side of the receiver of the 48, there is some Russian writing that looks like "nPEAy3EhE44".I am guessing it commemorates a victory. The gun looks brand new and the wood is beautiful.
