I just got my C&R and am looking at a 91/30 for my first buy. The one I want is at AIM The questions I have are about the options at the bottom of the page.


It says I can Add $10 for Tula Mfr. and/or Add $10 for a Hexagonal Receiver

1. What is "Tula Mfr."? is it where the gun was made at? Is it worth the 10$

2. Is there anything better about the hexagonal reciever? Is it worth the 10$

Thanks folks.

It's all going to up to you both of those options give the mosin more value for the collector. I have a 1933 Tula Hex and it is a fine piece. It was well worth $20 more to me. If it's a shooter and not really a collection piece than those options should not matter too much. Yes, Tula is the Arsenal where it was manufactured Izchavec (SP?) Would be the other major arsenal of manufacture. The hex reciever is more collectable (not as common).I Say pay the twenty more and get a good piece.

I am really strapped for cash but I want my first damn C&R buy now damnit. So I think I will pay the 10 for the Tulla.


But sell me on the hex reciever, what is better about it?

The hex type are more collectable, but older. Of course all the rifles at AIM are arsenal refurbished, so may not be matching. I'm not sure how this will affect the colector value.

A non hex type may get you a newer, tighter rifle for a daily blaster though.

Ordered one from them a few weeks ago, didn't ask for hex and got a nice 1922 hex recvr from them anyway. A side bonus is they are TG Knox imports so no Giant Century Arms Billboard Import mark !

Everything but the bayonet

I bought a Mosin from Aim about a month and a half ago. I received a 1943 Izhmash, all matching except the butt plate and bayonet. It was a PW Arms import, so the only extra markings were quite small on the barrel.
