I just picked up my 1953 turbothis Soviet reweld and had to show it off! I've wanted a type iii since the early 90s and I'm very happy with it so far!

Congrats, looks amazing. That has to be one of my favorite stock sets I've ever seen on a milled. Im a sucker for dark wood like that, and all the character that guns got!

Very nice. I really wish I had the skills and tools to do a reweld Type 3 project.

Very nice! I like the look.

BTW, its probably a 1963, as a 1953 would be a type 2.

wouldn't be a '63 either. '61 or so was the latest iirc. I can't see the stub markings in his photos to confirm the date... but it is a great looking rifle!

I watched this auction, you got the rifle for a damn good price, you paid close to what a kit is going for these days, add in the wait and cost of the reweld, your in pretty darn good
