Sometimes they will all match, sometimes they are "lined out" or "forced matches". Of course all original matching numbers are more desirable but it shouldn't effect the performance...

Yep, the triangle/arrow symbol is Isvehtest..isvehhish...izvaaaa screw it, I can't spell it either!!

It looks real nice, I like the color of the finish. You know what you're doing, as long as the bore is good, yer good to go...

Have you seen this site yet?

http://7.62x54r.net/
I checked the mag floor plate and butt plate,and they all match,where exactly would I look on the reciever to see if I have all matching? Or am I mistaking the number behind the rear sight to be the number for the reciever instead of the barrel?

And yes that site is awesome

It should be right there on the top of the receiver near the armory mark...I don't think the bbl has a stamp...

They all had to be re-stamped when they were imported, that stamp should be found on the side of the reciever, right near the wood.

That's the one I thought was on the bbl then,well in that case everything matches. All I see are the same four numbers in all those places,nothing lined through.

Nice!! I figure it's about a 50/50 chance to find an all original matching #'s model...

Was just looking at one of mine, it's a forced match but they messed up in 2 places...all the #s are the same except they put a 6 instead of an 8 in those 2 places...

Looks like it was stamped by a blind woodsman too.

Guess they don't care much for aesthetics...

You might need these too...https://www.buymilsurp.com/stripper-clips-qty-5-mosin-nagant-rifle-p-774.html

And of course some ammo to go with it...http://www.ammoengine.com/find/ammo/7.62x54mm

The mil-surp is corrosive but hot soapy water will make quick work of it...have fun with it and congrats again!!!

I've been very lucky with Mosins, and got into them more by accident,

than on purpose.

The tone got set by the mint Polish M44 I started out with.

All matching serials, of course, and never fired, to boot.

The Russian M44 was also nice, but the 1925 Izzy was another

stroke of pure luck.

It started with the usual "search through the pile", where I turned

up a completely matching '34 hex Tula, and asked my FFL to hold it for

me. He wound up selling it to a mutual friend, and I got first dibs on the

next shipment. The first rifle out of the box was the 1925. Apparently

re-arsenaled in 1930, it's got the hooded sight, and the new stock

and barrel bands. Still a nice gun, with solid rifling. Also very accurate.
