Flea market find , numbers matching M38

Postby Miller Tyme » Fri Sep 01, 2017 12:58 pm

About every 4 years or so the wife and I take off the last Wednesday in August and go to a big Flea Market in S.E. Indiana to dispose of stuff we no longer need, and for her to buy stuff other people don't need.

Well this year was different, a gentleman set up next to me and had a 1942 Izhevsk M38 for sale. He originally had it marked for $525.00, but quickly marked it down to $375.00. I asked to look it over since the stock looked like it might have been a Finn Captured, but quickly noticed the lack of any Finnish markings, but it was all original stamped matching so after a couple of hours of no lookers I made him an offer well below his $375.00, and to my delight he accepted.

So here it is, in all its glory.
