Mosin Mystery?

Recently picked up one of the Classic Hex Receiver Mosins.

After I got the "Cosmoline Queen" cleaned up I was fairly happy with the rifle. Markings are good and the wood looks great. What has me scratching my head is that the factory decided to grind on the bolt cocking piece. For the life of me I can't understand why.

I was hoping one of one of you may have seen this nonsense before and have a clue as to why they would do this to an otherwise great looking rifle.

What a really nice "5 line" Tula! You did very well. The grind marks on the back of the bolt, who knows... It could be to remove the original maker mark, or Igor was just drunk on vodka and was bored. Wither way, not a big deal... Nice score!

Nice hex tula ex-dragoon! I'm can't remember if there are numbers on the safety or not, so you could replace that part of the bolt if it bothers you. I'd leave it alone if it was mine.

Do the bolt and receiver match? Perhaps the original receiver was out of spec and it was easier to grind the bolt than the receiver to make the parts function properly together. Maybe the back edges of the original receiver were too high and were rubbing on the bolt.

It's nothing that will keep me awake at night.

It just seems odd. The only mark that should be there is the manufacturer. What remains seems to be a Izhezsk "Bow and Arrow" mark.

Bolt itself is a match to the rifle. The part of the cocking piece that Ivan decided to play with rides outside of the action at all times and really would not touch anything.

Weird.

I think only the American ones had numbers on the cocking bolt, and it was on the far back on the actual knob where it meets the back of the firing pin.
