Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Screaming lion on Mosin bolt head!

#1 Post by FamilyFirearms » Thu Jul 13, 2017 8:26 pm

I picked up a bunch of Mosin bolts and parts to sell from a buddy of mine. When I was going through them sorting maker marks and other stuff, I noticed a strange mark I have never seen before. There is this mark on the bolt lug and what looks to be a YN on the other side. Any ideas?

If I am remembering correctly it's the Finnish commercial CIP proof mark.

ETA: Here's a posting with the marking in regards to ammo, referring to its use on Finnish ammo.

ETA: It is also referred to as the Riihimäki CIP proof mark. There is a discussion regarding this marking on the RMNF site.

Ok thanks! Just thought it was interesting but now it isn't anything special.

It's cool in a sense.

I agree with ffuries, it's still cool to see that mark!

If it were me, I'd keep it. No telling when you might need it for a project.

It's a commercial proof mark.

Since I have a bunch of extra bolts and boltheads, I will just keep it for prosperity for now.
