Was looking for a 91/30. Anyone know of dealers that have them? Usually a couple pop up on EE, but after transfers, they get more than should be paid ;)

AIM had some a while ago, but missed out on them. Wanted to look more locally (I'm in Macon...). So if anyone knows of any around...be appreciated...

DO you want it now or willing to wait?

Get a C&R and keep an eye out for them is the cheapest option

I C&R can get expensive sicne you can order them directly

American Classic Marksman usually has one. Tucker Gun had a bunch of M44s a few months ago.

Its not just a gun its also a spear and a club

I don't know why I don't have one yet.

I prefer the carbine model, but the longer looks pretty sweet too.
Link Posted: 5/22/2009 4:45:54 PM EST
And ammo's dirt cheap...Big bang, low coin, lots of fun...followed by lots of cleaning.

Toss in pretty decent accuracy, low price to buy one...but I missed them on AIM for $99.95. *sigh*

At one point you could buy Mosin's in great shape for as low as $29.99. Those days are long gone.

Ahh...assume supply of them has gotten a littler lower, too, though.

Appear to go from about 90 to 150 for regular, up to almost 600 for sniper.

A real sniper would be worth that but the snipers being sold out there now are not, they are "imitations".

Is this one an imitation? Nagant?For that price it better not be. Not that I'd pay that much for any nagant......

cant tell from that picture which makes it suspect.
Link Posted: 5/23/2009 5:29:16 AM EST
I've been thinking about picking up one of those myself lately.

How are the sniper scopes? Are they 4x? Optically OK?
Link Posted: 5/23/2009 9:48:23 AM EST
Don't forget this fact sheet to get you started Mosin info
Link Posted: 5/24/2009 12:19:48 PM EST
600 is for a non original sniper. Possibly worth it if done nicely (I have no idea how Rguns look) post war refurb 91/30 + new made PU scope.

real ones are $$$ (and with the repros in the market you have to know how to validate real

I still need a Beaver Chewed receiver model, should be able to find one one of these days.....

I've put around 400 rounds through it since I bought it. In fact, two screws that hold the receiver to the stock wiggled loose a few weeks ago. Ended up squirting some loctite in there, and it's fine now. Other than a very slight discoloration on the bayonet from firing the gun with it extended, it looks brand new still.

I shoot it much more than my sar-1, simply b/c it eats ammo slower, and it's honestly more fun.

Don't forget the Mosin's Finnish brother, the M39

The M39 is built on Russian Mosin receivers but with much better sights, barrels, stocks, and triggers. They are very accurate rifles. Best of all you can buy M39 rifles with pre 1899 receivers that qualify as antiques(Considered NOT to be a firearm by Federal Gov). You can have it shipped direct to your home address! These run $200-$400. I've got a Sako M39 built on a Tula 1897 receiver. GREAT rifle.

I bought from these guys: http://gunsnammo.com/
Link Posted: 5/25/2009 2:50:11 PM EST
I like the Nagant rifles.


Link Posted: 5/26/2009 5:28:26 AM EST
By the way, gunsnammo.com also has some very nice M91/30s for sale if you really want a russian.

I'll admit that even though I love my Finn M39 I still long for a crude Russian.
Link Posted: 5/26/2009 8:20:01 AM EST
Having my C&R, I just got my dealer catalog from Southern Ohio Gun, they have Hex receiver nagants in excellent cond. for $79, other ones in excellent shape for $69 and they have Finnish models for as low as $239 for a VKT. Its worth getting your C&R, they also have Yugoslavian tt-33's and Romanian tt-33's. I like my two mosins, both made before 1936 and refurbed later but I love my mausers.

Is that a Remington Nylon 22 I see? I had one of those growing up...fun little rifle.

C&R will cost me waaaay too much money if I get one ;)

Ah the C&R Bug... I miss the days of $49.99 Shipped Czech White tipped from AIM for the 880 case and finding $49.99 91/30's and M38's. I could kick myself for not getting a M44 then too. I picked up about 5 or 6 Nagants. Flame suit on, I took one that was in really bad shape and sporterized it with ATI stuff. Because they're so cheap, even now at nearly double the price they're still a bargain.

Wow... all of these stories of cheap 9mm, cheap 54R, sub 20 cent 5.56 makes me wish I had been born 10 years earlier. Those 880round cases of Czech ammo are now $150 before shipping... Still a great deal in today's market.

Hell, I'm a child of the 80's...this wasn't that long ago for me. But I do remember making fun of guys just a few years back for paying $200 for a case of Lake city when I was buying Wolf for $50.00 a case. I should've bought less guns and mo' ammo.

$50 a case!

$50 only gets you 100 rounds at walmart now... if they have it. Wolf is $300 a case online right now

I sincerely hope that one day in the future we return to cheap(er) .223/5.56. I would love to be able to take the AR to the range and not thing about all of the money I'm leaving in the backstop.

I was paying $95 for 1024 rounds of ChiCom / Norinco 7.62x39 back when, Norinco SKS's were $89, SVT 40's and Arisaka's were still on the racks as C&R's and cheap. (early 90's).

Anyway, Forsyth County Pawn gets 91/30's in stock fairly often, call them up.

Other than that I'd go with AIM or SOG.

Sweet! Gotta love those M44's
Link Posted: 6/16/2009 8:06:38 PM EST
I had to get hex receiver ones and round ones too when AIM had them for cheap. M91/30s, M44s... I never got the M38, though, because I was holding out for one in an original stock that didn't have the bayo groove. What a mistake that turned out to be. Should have gotten the cheap (like $80) M38s in M44 stocks when I had the chance.

At least I did buy a few thousand rounds of 1980s Polish silver tip at ~$80/880 shipped, though. That and the cheap Golden Tiger AK ammo I stockpiled from Cope's a couple of years ago are my "shoot for fun and not worry about how much is left" ammo supply.

Mosins rock, and they're not for girly men. Shooting one of the M44s all day means one black shoulder. Shooting it at night is super awesome - muzzle flash like a tank. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSqs2ptsbs8
