Authentic Tula 1944 PU Arsenal Refurbished
First off let me state the good
1. Tula manufacture (when purchased from aim.. they had 500+ Izhevsk Pus.. only 60 were Tulas.. that gives you an idea)
2. Crown Like New
3. Bore like New
4. Arsenal Matched, 1942 Progress Scope clear
5. Handpicked from Aim surplus
6. Original Box and Manual from Molot
7. Bolt body is original to the rifle.. not arsenal matched.
8. Group west, the best looking imports ever to come in. Only marks on the entire rifle are molot under the hand guard. Group west marks are under the bolt body, and under the barrel.
9. Lens Caps included
10. No signs of corrosion past / present inside in out.
11. Scope is already arsenal zeroed; only minor adjustments. Ghost of front sight seen in scope (indicating the mount and orination is correct.
1. Line out forced match of floor plate and buttplate. Really not a concern.. perhaps 5-10% of these imported actually have their original parts.
1. Arsenal Repaired tang crack. It looks bad, but it has been repaired at arsenal (see pictures). Both cracks look repaired and stabilized at arsenal but full disclosure i want you to know whats up.
Price - 745 + shipping (quote can be provided) OBO (it costs me $40 to ship the original box; if you are not interested in the box i can drop shipping price considerably). I have to double box it if you want the box.
Payment - USPS MO, Discrete online payment
As you can see its been filled with some type of pine tar mixture. There is no crack on the tang wall.
