    My Russian Type 3 barrel proof. It has a worn painted finish - surmised to be circa 1960.

    Constantly studying spots welds, mag well dimple shapes, center support rivet heads and selector markings for the last 12 years...

    BTW - Keep your BFH away from my AK!

    It's just not the same character shape or the same stamping. A virgin Russian barrel would not even have the stamping on it.

    1977 G. I have another 77 G, but the marks are too faint to read.

    72 tula
    i know its a shit picture... it looks the shape of the molot y in the previous post. i dont think this is the same time of thing as the izzy stamp. it is small much like any other tine tula stamp w/ a letter inside a circle.




    62 izzy anyone ever pay attention the the way these are orientated perpendicular to the bore?
    in a similar location. also you dont see a lot of partials. the stamp is probably concave and would have to be positioned the same to get a full circle on a round surface w/out having it be super deep in the middle. the depth is pretty uniform.
    anyways i wonder if anybody else could see which way the y is pointed and about where it is.
    if it is ever perpendicular to the bore would be a different stamp. im sure they had tons of them made a they wore just interested to see...



    67 romanian. different size and shape.
    bottom of y to front of barrel.
