I ran into that seller while trying to find Mauser barrels. What are the odds that he's actually had to deal with non-Anglophone buyers?

IIRC we have a better idea of what it wasn't used for - shooting defectors as they hopped the wall being one of the most popular legends. Apparently the gun itself is basically a Suhl biathlon rifle in 5.45x39. :psyduck:

Also gently caress that seller's auction title and gently caress it hard.

Edit: also, 600 imported, not 600 produced total.

Was it a Finnish M91? No Russian factory had any 91/30s with hex receivers past 1936, I thought.

Older receiver with a replacement barrel, 1940 being the date on the barrel shank. The receiver's date would be under the tang, assuming Mister Bubba didn't polish it off. :cripes:
