    Received a shipment of five M91 rifles from SOG. I ordered handpicked on this lot. Of course, bolts don't match, and no cleaning rods, but I got two Tula 1915s, one Tula 1916, one Tula 1917, and an Ishevesk 1917. The bores are all excellent, and the metal on them has been arsenal refinished. Four of the five had the Emporer's crest ground off during refinishing (dang Commies!), but one of the Tula 1915 rifles still had the crest intact. The wood on them is good to very good.

    I did not see any Finnish SA marks on these rifles. I have a feeling these came out of one of the former Soviet block countries, if not Russia proper. One of them has a bit of wear around the muzzle where the bayonet has been put on & off. As far as I can tell, they will take the original bayonet.
