    Default 1939 PN over Tula 1939

    Any idea what P N stands for over the Tula star?? It doesn't have any holes plugged up. Never seen a P N. before. thanks.

    "Tulta munille!"

    "Terror is not a new weapon. Throughout history it has been used by those who could not prevail, either by persuasion or example. But inevitably they fail, either because men are not afraid to die for a life worth living, or because the terrorists themselves came to realize that free men cannot be frightened by threats, and that aggression would meet its own response. And it is in the light of that history that every nation today should know, be he friend or foe, that the United States has both the will and the weapons to join free men in standing up to their responsibilities."
    John F. Kennedy

    So this rifle is like the accuracy marked rifles that have the "cn" sniper proof and have never been drilled and tapped for a scope moun, but has a "pn", marking instead? These Cyrillic letters would translate to "RP"...no idea what it means, but there have been a couple other sniper or non-sniper accuracy marked rifles reported with markings similar to this that are slightly different than the standard "cn" or "CH" markings.

    Did you examine the sides of the receiver ring carefully to make sure it isn't a PEM "top-mount" ex-sniper? The Soviets were still making a very few top-mount snipers in 1939, along with the much more common PEM siderail rifles. Some of the PE topmount "ex"-snipers require careful examination to see where the plugged holes on the sides of the receiver ring were, and they are not as easily spotted and identified because they don't have those plugged holes on the left side of the receiver rail that are very visible with the bolt open like the PEM siderail and PU rifles.

    What is the bore condition, and generall overall condition and configuration, of this rifle like? If it has a good shootable bore, it seems like it would be a very unique and collectable rifle (and well worth acquiring and hanging onto), even if we don't currently know what the proof markings mean.

    I will bump an old thread. Does anybody came across any 1939 Tula rifles with 2 letters marking above the star, but other than CП or HП?
