Looks like something it's owner could have done before or during the war. To my knolage no country ever did this to Mosin bolt handles.

Got your PM. This looks to me like something unique. It's a one of a kind for sure. The modification was not done recently judging by the way it has weathered.

First off where did you purchase this from? Private party of store? Even though it looks old it could be a relatively recent mod by a previous owner.

Does your rifle have any re-arsenal marks on it? It would not have left the arsenal that way. They would have replaced the bolt handle and sent it back out.

It is quite unique in how it was done. Interesting find

Search for a thread called "is my oar clean" it's got info on that.

If you have cosmoline then a hair dryer heating up the barrel will get it soft for easier removal. If you boar is pitted, once you get it clean stat building up a little copper fowling in it. The copper will fill those puts and help tighten up the boar. Many shooter find that accuracy does not get to its best until they have shot about 20-50rds. My buld Smyert MK2 does not shoot good till I have put 40rds through it.
