    Earliest Type II Rifle with Type III Barrel Fittings

    What is the earliest unmolested Type II Rifle with all Type III Barrel Fittings that we have seen on the forum? I am about to start searching, but if anyone online this morning can answer this I would appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    Trying to pin down of any Type III barrel parts were ever issued on a 1953 rifle.

    I checked with Russian collectors, and the consensus was 1954 was the earliest.

    With the T3 being "adopted"/approved in 1953, that makes sense.

    Also, more then one of these has Bulgarian origins.. So its always possible that the Bulgarians rebarreled them.
