    I was at my local gun store and noticed he had gotten 10 Mosin Nagants in. I never really liked them much but took a look anyway. I was shocked how great two of them looked. The bores were bright and shiny. I loved the brass end caps on the upper handguard and the paint infill on the serial numbers and rear sights. All the serial numbers matched and even the bayonet serial number matched. So I bought two of them for $110 each. They are dated 1937 and 1938. I wonder if this is some kind of parade rifle ? Anyways..........here are a photos of the 1938 Mosin.

    I have one and love it, the matching serial numbers by my understanding are necessary because some of the parts will or would not interchange. I should have bought two at the time but there's always tomorrow

    Nice! They look nice and anytime you find one with a shiny bore is a bonus.

    Congrats. I have a 1939 round receiver and a 1933 hex. These years were full of events in old Europe leading to Germany's rise and invasion of Poland as well as start of WW 2.
