It's all matching, top forend wood is dry looking and a little loose with a brass shim under the fore iron. The gun was NOT cleaned and thats why it went for $75. It was drier than a powder house fart:) , and the bore was almost plugged with dirt, BUT I used the cleaning rod with a scrap of rag and took a chance. Some Sweets 7.62 solvent and it looks VERY good-strong rifling and no pits and very little erosion ith my cheap bore scope. A little ultra fine steel wool and Marvel Mystery oil and the freckles on the bolt went away. The blue came back.I am oiling the stock with Lin Speed tonight after a steel wool rub.

I haven't shot a Moisin in many years (25 or so) , and am not really into them, I am too cheap to pay $350 for a nice M-39. I really don't know much about them, but I heard the 'SA' stamp on the action and stock mean 'captured'? It has the old otagon action and an 'SK' barrel. What is up with these things? Will it take a few factory rounds? Seems to tightly c:confused: hamber a Wincherter round.

It's NOT a 28/30 ! It is a late Model 28, because the sights are the earlier pattern and the Barrel marking is SK stylized. I'm learning but additional help would be apreciated!
