    Hey guys I've got a question regarding a serial number stamped on the receiver of my 1935 Tula M91/30 that I'm curious about. I've looked around on but can't find anything(maybe I'm looking in the wrong spot). It's stamped with the number C336, this does not match the number on the barrel nor anywhere else on the gun.
    I'm pretty new to owning a Mosin and it's awesome, just need a carbine model now :).

    I was thinking it was an import number but the font is wrong and in the wrong place.

    Yeah, it's a Century Arms import and has the import stamp on the other side of the receiver.

    Probably one of the numerous proof stamps.

    There are tons of markings that no one really knows what they mean. Russia isn't exactly dieing to give us old production papers or the like so some markings we will just never find out about.

    Importer serials are typically on the left side, this is on the right.

    Probably a refurb or unit marking, but who knows??

    Did anybody else notice the Beech stock?
