Default Molot Izzy Sniper 1943

can't wait to shoot it for competition with my finn 91/30 repro.

this is a molot sniper imported by IO. Probably as close to an original sniper as I'll ever get.

It is matching/ force matched trigger base plate with scope serial on receiver.

Nice crown/muzzle, classic shellac and dents and dings. arsenal repair on wood behind scope mount cutout.

Izzy triangles everywhere. bolt face looks great, barrel looks very good.

came with original packaging materials, cleaning kit, manual and oil bottle.

I wonder if that is the circle within a circle stamp on left side of receiver..above the 75 in scope serial number...looks like a circle within a circle.

that means it shoots sub sub moa. tier 1

Just because it has been refurbished does not make it not original. Very nice gun, congrats on the purchase.

thanks! I believe these Moltos have been vetted by the rockstars of surplus as being worthy.

Like I mentioned, as close as I'll ever get. My next purchases is gonna be a repro.

Molots are totally legit and in my opinion still well under valued for being an issued ww2 sniper.

Cool. I have a similar 1943 Tula, Molot PU sniper that came from AIM surplus a few years ago. Havent fired it. Matching numbers, all numbers stamped, no electro pencil. Still has some cosmoline, and the shellac job is horrendous. I started cleaning the bolt and action. I got some 1971 blue and yellow box Soviet target ammo to try out in it. I can't wait to shoot it now that I have it apart. Treating everything with Ballistol to be proactive.
