    Default 1936 Tula Mosin training rifle

    Filled another hole in my run of 1936 Mosin Nagant's with this difficult to find training rifle. It is a mix of Tula and Izhevsk ( both pre & post 1928) parts and has a beautiful bore, not what I would have expected from a training rifle.

    Pic.5: looks like pre-1917 mark.

    Nice! Not an easy one to find.

    Default Re: plugged hole? No, just a stamp.

    If you're referring to THIS, then no - it's just a stamp where an Imperial or Soviet stamp would normally be found.

    Cool Re: training rifle

    Very nice find. I've only ever owned M91/30's with a trigger assembly 'YY" proofed, never on the shank.

    Although not so marked, I've also got 2 training rifles; a totally mismatched 1936 HEX Tula M91/30, ex-PEM sniper rifle with red paint on the buttplate (probably Romanian in origin), and a 1922 Izhevsk M91/30 with the interrupter/ejector removed making it a single-shot rifle. The 1922 has a 190? Sestroryetsk receiver and is VERY accurate.

    If MillerTyme could reply and clear up what it looks like, we will have a definitive answer, but I think that is a welded over hole in the receiver. Alot of these training marked rifles were demilled, then reworked and put back into service/firing condition when WW2 broke out.

    Alexander Yuschenko's book has a section on these, and on 113 it shows a welded receiver plug on a rifle. It looks very close to Miller's receiver marking.
