Don't know what to think!
Bore: Not counterbored & in pretty good shape.
Metal: When refinished bare metal was covered with black paint which wiped off with CLP rag revealing bare metal.
The rifle had the soviet crest & year scrubbed off along with some of the original serial number.
I don't know what year my riffle was made! Tang date either scrubbed or stamped poorly.
The serial numbers matched but they could not of been original due to the Tula bolt with matching serial number on a Izzy?
The barrel threads were rusted real bad with rust & corrosion seeping out between the barrel & receiver.
Receiver screw corroded real bad from years of rust from barrel threads.
Riffle has mismatched "early" & "late" parts mixed from Izzy & Tula.
I would be happy if it was not rusted & corroded real bad where the barrel threads into the receiver, Hopefully the years of corrosion has not weakened the metal.
I hope I can find somebody to try it out for the first time because I don't want to blow my face off!
