Default Is this a /28 Tula?

Can anyone help me identify the manufacturing plant of my new addition?

On the right side, just under the hammer...there should/might be a Tula 'Hammer' mark...

I think so, but it's hard to tell as this is the spot Century (C.A.I) decided to put the import mark...I'll see if I can get a picture of it.

Sorry, I could not adjust the resolution down fine enough. I do see a hammer, although it's a little crude, I can just make it out.

Thanks, I appreciate that kroenen85, I absolutely LOVE it!

einheit 13 - what ammunition do you use? I was told to use the 32 H&R Magnum.

Yes it is and a nice example at that. I cringe when I hear people are using .32 magnum or .32-20 in these guns. I even question the practice of using .32 auto. .32 S&W Long, with lead bullets work in some and pressures are mild, but really you should stick to the original 7.62 Nagant gas seal ammo. I know it is pricey but so is a blown gun or damage to your body.

Thanks Gopguy - I have heard the original 7.62 Nagant wasn't as anemic a round as the current loads - and that the pressures of that original round are very close to the pressures of 32 magnum...also that the more stout brass used for the magnum loads keeps the case from splitting inside the cylinder?
