About a year and a half ago, I bought one the the MN 91/30 rifles from aim. I have to say that it is a hell of a rifle. However, I have been curious about where most of them come from. Are they in their original WWII condition, or have they been refurbished? BTW, what exactly do they mean by "refurbished?" What parts do they "refurbish." My reciever is not hexagonal but cylindracal. Were cylindracal recievers common on Nagants in WWII?

Thanks

Most of the refurbs were done just after WWII, up until the 50's and 60's by the russian arsenals. Typical of most arsenal refurbs, they restocked them, replaced small parts, screws, etc. Inspected the bores, counterbored some of them, and then refinished the metal. Then, they were put into stores for future use (or in this case to be surplused off on the commercial market).

The round receivers were very common on WWII Mosins, moreso than hex receivers.

Aztec has been the importer for a lot of the nicer refinished Moisin Nagants (include MN-44s, MN-38s). They really are pretty examples.
