It's a known variant, check here. Described as "Tula "CCCP" pre-1928 Soviet M91 or Dragoon", also has an arsenal refurbishing mark and a proof.
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.

I think it is just hillarious that we are discovering rare variants in the shiploads of MNs that our friends who used to be our enemies are dumping on the market. Before long they will all be collectors' items and then what will we buy cheap and shoot freely?

Good question. Maybe all the stuff that the state department won't let back in from Korea. Maybe someone will find a load of musketts from the Revolution next
