That would be 20 years older.

Backstrap, your Wife sees that rifle on her couch and you are dead! Can I have it, when you get buried in the back yard?

Definitely a scarce one. Total production around 2,500. 1947 was the highest production year for post-war Mosin snipers - the Soviets still enough left over from WW2, but were stepping up the level of Communist aggression in Eastern Europe and around the world and wanted to make sure their arsenals and other facilities still had the knowledge, experience, and capability to make and maintain the snipers that had played such in important part in the last world war in case they needed them in the next one that they planned to start.


Only a handful are known in original, never de-snipered, condition and configuration, of these only 1 known to exist that still has it's original factory scope that matches the original number on the barrel shank. IIRC, maybe 18-20 or so, less than 24 anyhow, reported in ex-sniper configuration.

Most of these were mint, unissued, and still in their original factory crates when some vodka-addled, worthless, lazy, bureaucrat ordered them "Arsenal Bubba'ed" into ex-snipers.

Definitely worth restoring back to original sniper condition and configuration.

Meh, that appears to be one of the refurbished snipers.

You don't want it, send it to me. :D

Trust me, you don't want it. Shoots lousy.

The youngest Ive seen is a 1950. Ive seen two (internet only) and the one that i saw on Gunbroker is now in Alaska.....and he paid for it!
I saw a 1947 at Big 5 in Apple Valley that did not have a scope number on the barrel. Unfortunatly it was one of their repro snipers. I thought long and hard on that one but let it go.

I bought my Mosin from big 5 in Apple valley. You from the high desert?
