Not rare IMO. Part of the sloppy production. There are lots of them out there. It is cool that it all matches though. I wouldn't pay more for that.

Odd that the barrel shank looks buffed but the serial number doesn't.

I'm wondering if it wasn't given a new serial number when it was rebuilt, that's not unheard of.

I have a few like that. Oddly all from the 1930s.

Nice Laminate stock on that one.

MNMan. Interesting comment on the buffing. If I remember I will check mine.

Does the 200 mean it was the 200th produced in a certain month in 1934?

They are out there. I got a #164 from 1930 (built on a 1929 receiver) and a #9 from 1940-something.

I have #134 from 1934. It is a Finn 91-30. No letter prefix I don't think those started until later in Mosin production.

Is it an Izhevsk or a Tula?

The reason I ask, is some early 1934 Izhevsk 91/30s carry the "PM-86" marking, an unknown, but rare marking.

Mine is #146 and has the PM-86.

I don't even remember I'd have to dig it out I think it was Tula. No PM86.

Although probably not rare, I really like the crisp stampings of the numbers and the loads of cartouches on the receiver. Can you post a pic of the whole rifle?

I have a 91/30 with a 3 digit serial number too. It is a common wartime Izhevsk but is one of my favorite rifles. For all the Mosins that have passed through my hands, this one is a definite keeper. Hard to explain why we latch on to certain firearms regardless of their value..

I took it out of the stock to see tang date. It was also 1934 but some say that very low serial numbers sometime have the previous years tang date.

I've got a 1932 Hex Izhevsk that has double digit serials. I don't consider it a rarity though because of the nature of post-war refurbishment scrubbing and re-serializing.
