1943 Izhevsk 91 59 | 1943 Izhevsk 91 59 Rare Online
All other numbered parts, including even the bayonet, are factory original and stamped to match this gun, not forced with an electric pencil. As you can see in the pictures, the flatter areas bearing the serial number have never been polished and then re-stamped with matching serial numbers, as 98% of these 1943 Izhevsk 91 59 you normally see. These serial numbers are THE original factory-applied stamped serial numbers, including the one on the bolt and the floor plate (the 2 most common renumbered parts on these rifles). It is also of great importance that all major factory marks are still visible, as are most of the small inspection marks.
However, many of the markings were poorly engraved or hand-stamped on a curved surface, so they are not 100% complete. These poor stamping practices by the Russian inspector lasted throughout World War II and for quite a few years afterward as well. One of the most important marks, in this case, indicates/proves that it is a 1943 Izhevsk m38, Kimber Micro 9 Desert Night original. The sniper model is a circled “C” stamped on the barrel shank in the upper right or left quadrant of the visible area between the receiver and the rear sight. It circled “C” was the one used by the Izhevsk Arsenal throughout the production of P.U. sniper rifles they made. In contrast, Tula used the two letters “C H.” This rifle has a very badly struck “C-circle” on the upper right side of the receiver ring, the proper area for this year of production.
