    Are your rifles processed this way?

    Thank you.
    Usually just the chamber is modifed to show the cartridge was fired in a civilian gun. I have never heard of them drilling in under the handguard.

    I'll say they're not import marked as US would not let to be exported (burned once). There will be no "civil marking" pins, as it will be stupid. It's their local law for local sales and there is no point to pay someone to do the "job" when they're going for export.

    Unfortunately that is exactly what they do, I know it for fact.

    In the Small arms review a few years ago they had an article on Russian Hunting SKSs and they indeed inserted a pin to mark the bullet as it travelled down the barrel to aid forensic identification. However that may have just been a Communist era restriction and if these rifles are surplus than they probably wont be modified, I know my Nagant wasn't.

    The "Russian Mods" are irrelevant if the rifles are not coming from Russia. And so far, we don't know where they are coming from.
