Added another 1920's era 91/30 to the family.

1926 Tula with a forced matched floor plate in a pre war stock with brass caps. Ex Dragoon, hex receiver.

Nice! I like the brass caps. The tiger stripe is amazing, I've got to poke around for one of those.

Thanks, I swear the striped stock is of Finn origin, because I've never seen such flame prevalence in a Soviet one. It's about 1inch longer than my other two, and MUCH heavier as well. No markings that I can see though...
