    Default model 36 PEM

    Were any PEM rifles built on Hex receivers or were they all built on high wall round receivers ?

    None were build on hex receivers. PEM mount was designed on new round receiver.

    You are welcome)
    I just wanted to say that only PE sights were placed on the hexagons. I happened to see PEM sights only on round rifles.

    Actually first trial run of PEM's in 1936 (approximately 50 mounts produced by Voskov factory in Sestroretsk) were hex receiver rifles. Reason - PEM design was copied from GECO D3 mout, and D3 was supposed to be used on the hex receivers. Preserial PEM mount (there is an image in my book) had very similar design. However, in 1936-1938 mount was redesigned, and serial production was started only in mid 1938, and of course, only using round receivers

    Wow. What great information. Thanks D and R. I assume that only "PE", a US short cut to reality and terms, were used early only hex rifles for the most part??

    Extremely interesting.Thank you both

    Round receivers were used on PE snipers starting in 1936. Some 1936 PE's are built on Hex receivers, some on round

    In 1937 PE's were made on round receivers
