I have a request. I am looking for the first R-Guns huge import mark that was found on the Mosin rifles. This was when they sold like $69 a rifle. They advertised in Shot Gun News Ca. 2003-2006. Does anyone have a picture of this IMPORT mark. It was such a huge bill board mark that they could not sell off the rifles. Then they switched to smaller import marks. I remember it was R-GUN in 3/8 or 1/4 inch letters, heck maybe even the first part of the import mark that was the " R Gun" logo that was in 1/2 inch letters?? Like they were advertising their name on the rifle? Any one have a photo they can share. All the early photos in old posts seem to be gone due to the photo bucket switch to pay as you post. The only other crazy import mark is that white Molot mosin with markings plastered all over the receiver. This should be a post 2002 mark. If you have a shooter with a large R Guns import mark on the top of the receiver please, please show a photo of it. Thanks
The store is in Carpentersville, Illinois and they were infamous for the largest import mark ever found on a Mosin. It is bigger than this second generation smaller mark see photo. The first mark was placed directly on top of the receiver.

My Izhevsk m44 was imported by this group and has an identical marking on it.
