How rare is it ?
I have a all matching 1942 Mosin Nagant 91/59. How rare are the 91/59"s ?
Between Uncommon and reasonable rare. I would put them at about the same level as finding a Finnish mosin or a Romanian M44 in the current market.
I've got a "sanitized" 91/59 and it's my favorite M/N.
Not as common as M38s or M44s, but not what most would consider even close to "rare".
Around 6000 imported, I would agree they are uncommon but not rare. They converted any 91-30 and since 1942 and 1943 Izshevsk are the most common 91-30 the vast majority of 91-59's are those dates.
Ok thanks not that I want to get rid of it I just wanted to know how many they converted.
