This would make a handy little
hunting rifle or one to throw in the pickup and not worry
about scratching. The rounds are cheap and the ballistics
are very close to the .30-06.
The barrel was professionally cut
down to 20", recrowned and a new front sight added. The bore
is good with deep rifling but will probably clean up better.
It is an Izhevsk arsenal hex receiver and is dated 1934. The magazine has not been altered so it still holds 5 rounds
and takes stripper clips. The parts numbers are mismatched
but then this isn't a collectors piece. Comes with the sling
and the original wood stock. This rifle will not
qualify as a C&R as it has been altered from the original
configuration so it will have to go through an FFL transfer.
Overall a very nice, clean rifle.
The pictures will tell you more.
