Description:

Per the consignor, this Izhevsk Model 91/30 Mosin-Nagant sniper rifle is a Vietnam War bring back. Although no War Trophy papers accompany it, this rifle certainly has telltale signs of jungle use and has all the hallmarks of known verified Vietnam bring backs. These Mosin-Nagant 91/30 PU sniper rifles as well as an array of surplus World War II Soviet firearms are known to have seen use throughout the Vietnam War in the hands of Vietcong. "1943" dated above the serial number (transliterated: "NG1811") on the top of the breech. Standard left mounted PU scope. The body of the PU scope is marked with a hammer and sickle above a "1942" date, "No 73990" and "1964" Vietnam War era rebuild date. The scope mount is electro-stenciled "HB 4193" and "20066" with handwritten "4319397". Fitted with a correct armory replacement laminated straight wrist stock, typical of those used by the Vietcong.

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 75% arsenal refurbished blue finish mixed with areas of smooth brown patina, and exhibiting signs of jungle use with some scattered patches of moderate pitting. Stock is also fine with defined edges and some light handling marks. Mechanically excellent. Scope is very good with half of the arsenal refurbished blue finish on the tube mixed with smooth brown patina and scattered patches of moderate jungle pitting, and the optics are hazy.
