Here are my 3. They are nothing special but as the old saying goes, "There are many like them but these ones are mine!" I picked up all 3 from Calguns members and all of them were still packed in grease when I got them and came with all the accoutrements. One had been fired a few times by the original owner with a lot of cosmoline still on the gun (Not in the barrel or action though) and I was told it shot fine (Although I wouldn't do that!). The other 2 were caked and I spent hours degreasing them.

All 3 are 1942 - 1943 rounded receiver Izhevsks with matching# and great stocks (One has some arsenal repairs that I didn't even notice until I cleaned the gun up) The other two are perfect.

By the way, these guns are SHOOTERS! I underestimated how much FUN they are to shoot as well as being relatively easy on the wallet. And they are not ugly to me at all. I love the way they look and they shoulder and point very naturally.
