    Default 3 Lines Struck Through The Soviet Crest?

    This is the first good pic i've ever gotten of my '42 Izhevsk 91/30's barrel. I've had it for about 5 years and i've always wondered about the crest on the barrel. There are 3 horizontal lines struck through the hammer and sickle in the wreath. Would this have been some former Soviet state trying to de-communize themselves?

    Hard to say, it's possible it was done post 1991, but why. The Soviet Warsaw Pact countries might have used 91/30s the first few years after WW2 but they would have returned the early stuff to the USSR as newer models came along.
