Hopefully the image uploads nice and proper, perhaps iridium could enlighten me on the Cyrillic if he has a few free moments

Well first I can tell you that you have what's known in the trade as a "Tula Premier". The early marked Tula's can fetch more than say an newer marked rifle.

Interesting fact that in 1926: At Moscow, the Soviet Postal Bureau again issued warnings that all letters arriving from foreign countries must be marked "U. S. S. R." (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) instead of "Russia."

The warning contained formal notice that letters not so marked are liable to be returned or destroyed: "The term 'Russia' cannot be tolerated. It is suggestive merely of the area once under the dominion of the Tsar."

Geographers noted that what was once the Empire of the Romanovs and what is now the U.S.S.R.

Awesome! Thanks guys for both of your input. Does the fact that it is a "Premier" in any way denote that I should put the hacksaw down lol. I actually just ordered all my necessary bits and bobs from Brownells to do my cut/crown job so I suppose it's going to happen either way. More or less should I feel guilty afterwards? I know it's not a Finn or anything of that magnitude.

On a side note I was extremely pleased to find that my rear sight base was NOT in fact soldered along with being pinned, a few sharp taps with a dead blow and off she came :)

Oooh I dont think I would cut that fella up to be honest. I think there is a gun show in Waterloo this weekend you could pick up a super common 42-43 Izhesvk for cheap.

How does the boer look. Can you post a photo. The biggest reason to cut down a barrel is if the rife long is pristine. I bought one that's a 1932 Tula and after looking at the rifling I decided not to toss the barrel and cut it down instead. It will make a nice sports rifle good to 800 yards.

As for should you slice and dice her. I have to say I am starting to feel more conservative on modding older Mosins. Like yours. But it really is up to you.

The bore is a bit dark but has sharp rifling, i haven't polished it yet though. I've cleaned and polished my friends Remington and will likely be doing another buddys type 53 for him along with lapping the bolts on both... I have a nasty habit of working on other people's stuff before my own.

To Brett, yeah we have our annual gun club show this weekend as well. If I can find another one on the cheap out there I might pick it up otherwise I fear I won't be finding one any time soon. The type 53 my friend got last week is the first Mosin of any kind we've seen here in months. My gun guy Buck said he hasn't been able to get any 91/30s for 4-5 months...

I don't know guys, I'm on the fence here. I've got quite a bit invested in "Baby" already plus the $215 I just blew on crowning tools lol. If I go ahead with bedding and a Timney I'll be around $800 invested in my $125 rifle... Oh well, please don't think less of me if I have a failure of conscience and/or self control :|
