Description
This receiver was adopted in the late 1930's to allow for a side rail scope mount and is unique to snipers of this era. A 1938 Tula of this type is documented, but it is presumed that it was also used in 1939 just as the standard receiver (#2) was. The only difference between it and the standard round receiver (#2) is that it is a high wall. It retained the shallow magazine screw hole, stepped tang, extra notch forward of the stripper clip guide, machined right rear, and inner receiver ring without the lug race cut.
