    Default B Barrel Liege Proof Mark and Serial Information Thread

    Hello all,

    I am working with an advanced Belgian researcher to better understand the Finnish Mosin-Nagant rifles known as B Barrels. There are many myths and fanciful stories out there about these, and I am in the process of setting the record straight.

    If you could, could you please share the following information on your Liege proof-marked M91 (and M39, there are a few) rifles.

    Type: M91 or M39
    Serial: (feel free to add an for the last digit if you're concerned)
    B is present: Y/N
    VKT is present: Y?N
    Liege proof letter: (should be a serifed letter next to the Liege proof house mark)

    EXAMPLE:

    Type: M91
    Serial 22967
    B is present: Y
    VKT is present: Y
    Liege proof letter: M

    Thank you everyone in advance for your help!

    Best,
    Matt

    Thank for sharing! Beautiful example. Looks like a "J" Liege proof house inspector mark.
