    Thank you for your interest, it was actually sold as a Tula original refurbished sniper in Kiev, the Tula star is also present on the scope support, but I have no idea what the left side marking barrel corresponds to

    Is the barrel area, where the marking are, as rough under the stock as on top? Can you show us the backside of the scope mount, specifically the machining markings.
    So this was refurbished by an individual then.....who did the stock in that finish. There are lists of sniper serial numbers in the sticky's....you might put a link in the Mosin Nagant Collector thread to this too...some very knowledgeable guys here and I'm not one of them...still learning.

    to give you an overview, the marking of the support and its appearance are identical to this one without the marking '' 2 ''

    Looks like a genuine WWII sniper that went through an arsenal refurbishment at some point. The stock looks like it has been stripped of it's arsenal finish and had some type of oil finish applied.

    The "C H" mark on the barrel is the most obvious clue. Also, the bolt is stamped matching and looks correct in the photos. It looks like it has the Arsenal #2 mark that would indicate where it was refurbished. That could be where it got it's Izhevsk stock. The mount is also a genuine Tula made mount. You can tell by the small circular machining marks on the back. Izhevsk mounts have large circular machining marks. Scope is a genuine WWII piece, also refurbished and bears the same Arsenal #2 mark (X inside Square).

    I agree....the machine markings on the mount are Tula correct....looks like a nice sniper....too bad the stock was redone from original.

    How is the bore and crown?

    it's very accurate, but for the inside of the barrel it is very strange, the bore are sharp and deep to the mouth, but the gap between each stripe seems corroded

    Not uncommon....it is often called frosting and is generally from the use of Soviet corrosive ammunition (primers had corrosive elements) and not enough maintenance....or, heavy copper deposits can look like that....give it a very good scrubbing with a copper solvent when the barrel is hot (shoot it hot and clean it at the range) you may be surprised.
