Molot issue is new to me. I tried to search for a basic thread on this but am still looking for basic info... How do you tell? Pro's and Con's? How are they different than any other milsurp?
If this is covered in a thread does anyone have a link? Apparently I can use the search function...basically Molot is a Russian exporter and this is their mark?

Great. More modern marks to go with the US billboards...
I should've bought a crate when they just had regular old US umport marks....
At least Molot tends to hide their billboard advertising under the handguard. They usually put their symbol on the rear of the receiver, underside of bolt, and I think on the right side of the receiver if I remember correctly. So far I have only seen Molot M44's and M38's. No 91/30's that I know of yet.

Yep, I forgot about them.
I have a few Molot's, as people said, they are located under the bolt (like that one in the pic) the right side the receiver (if I remember correctly), under the hand guard and then under front sight, then PW arms or whatever importer adds their two cents as well. It's something I try not to think about when I am shooting my Mosin's haha.
