They were force matched when rearsenaled, all Mosin numbers should match, the Russian ones anyway.

Yeah are the number stamped or do they look like they were etched in with a Dremel?

They're stamped, what's the difference?

If they were "etched" then they were force matched after refurbishment, but since they are stamped then their the original parts.

Sweet so that means it's never been refurbished?

I may be getting a touch of Mosinitis. When Rguns catches up with their shipping, I may have the full-blown disease.

The last and just about every non refurb Mosin I've seen were Vietnam bring backs worth hundreds of dollars more than any refurbed version.

If you bought it out of a crate at a gun store for and for under $700, I can all but guarantee its a refurb.

The other point is, "if it doesn't have bring-back papers" it is NOT a bring-back. I have two T-53s that do not have import marks, but there is no evidence that they were ever any closer to Vietnam then Bejing.

Do matching serial numbers increase value? Mine has the same number on the receiver as it does on the bolt.
