Why?

Because those were the parts they had on hand.

When Soviet armorers were refurbishing these rifles after the Great Patriotic War, I doubt they were concerned about their future value to bourgeois capitalist collectors.

Mosins are like franken-guns, made with whatever was available.

The Tula factory was being shut down in late 1941 as the Soviets dismantled the factory ahead of the German advance. Probably some of the parts went to Izhevsk and some went to the new factory location.
