Mosin 91/30 Markings?

Just picked up a 91/30 hex receiver from a buddy this afternoon for a pretty good deal. Can anyone tell me anything about the markings? Thanks!!!

It was made in 1923.

Seriously, I would like to know about them myself.

The receiver is Ishevsk

The bow and arrow, or arrow in triangle, is supposed to be Ishevsk IIRC.

What you have is an Izhevsk ex-Dragoon. It was refurbished to a Model 91/30. This early of a refurbished Dragoon is relatively difficult to find. You did well.
