Mosin hord with odd importer

I went to a Cabelas- Richfield WI, somewhat south of West Bend, WI and the store had 23, Mosin 91/30s both hex and round receivers. The oddest ones I have seen with a nice small, hardly visible import mark on the left side at the wood line, and a tiny new serial number not visible to my eyes-- you n...
