Some interesting markings on my 1928 Hex Mosin Nagant
I'm not too sure what some of them mean.

Nice Mosin Nagant, but where are the markings on your pistol?

Foremost
Ordnance
Factory
(of the) USSR
at Tula
M91, 1924-1926
Dragoon, 1924-1928/9

The cirlce with N is the "Provisional black powder proof"

It's faint in the photo but there may also be a Cirlce Y "Final black powder proof"

The box above the serial is probably a referbishment mark.

The box with the slash through it is a Ukrainian refurb marking.

I believe most of the Soviet weaponry that comes here is from the Ukraine because there is an embargo on certain Russian guns. (That's why we don't have cheap SVTs like Canada or even SVDs--Eff you, Bill Clinton!).

Yea I've always wondered why the refurb mark was attributed to Ukraine. Never made sense to me that they would send most their rifles there.

Your explanation makes sense. Except I would have thought these rifles where refurbished earlier then that like at the beginning of the cold war..


BTW has anyone seen multiple refub marks on their rifles? (Kinda rhetorical as I'm sure someone has before)

My M38 possibly has 2: one is the normal box with straight line [|] and the 2nd is a box with 2 lines crossing [+] sorta like that. Unless that means something else.


BTW Digging the hammer on yours MC

Yep, one of my 91/30s has three different refurb marks on it. It has the "[/]" on the stock, the diamond on the receiver, and the box on the barrel shank. Hard to believe that particular rifle needed refurbishment three times, it's in very good shape.

Nah, most of the refurbs were done in the 60's/70's.

60's/70's is still way before the Clinton ban so that's kind of my point
