I'm adding to my Russian "arsenal"...

I purchased a WWII era M91/30 bolt-action rifle straight from the Motherland and will be taking delivery tonite !!

These bad boys fire the 7.62x54r cartridge that is the equivalent of the 303 and the 308.

I had a chance to fire a Mosin a few years ago and I never forgot the feel and the kick !!

When it came time to pick a rifle to go deer hunting with my brothers the Mosin was the natural choice... and it's Russian to boot !!

In a year or so I'll probably buy an SVT-40 Tokarev... the Mosin's big brother... a semi-auto that fires the same round.

I'll post pics later tonite !!

OK, picked up the Mosin...

First impression is WOW... and then I saw the hex receiver...

Date stamp is 1934... hex receiver - from Tulla !!

Bolt, action and butt plate have matching numbers.

The bore is beautiful !!

It has the "Concentric "00" Accuracy P AND the Point of aim proof.

The stock has its share of dings and scrapes.

Came with a bayonet, oiler and all the usual tools... but no sling.

Pics to follow !!

looks like the guy I got it from was wrong about mine being US-looked it over close and it is Russian ww2 era-on barrel: 1945r and HT8503.US made mosin nagant was supplied to Russia in ww1 but not ww2 according to what I found online.

You are correct. The US produced an early batch of M91/30s pre-WWI but nothing after.

The "r" behind 1945r means "year".

have a look at the website 7.62.54r.net for some great info on these guns.

BTW, the sling I ordered from a guy in Moldova arrived yesterday.

Here is a look at what is printed inside.


Here it is on the gun.

nice sling-even has authentic hammer and sickle.I once shipped a Russian made radio/phono from Chisnau Moldova-cost me about $200 to ship about 8 yrs ago.A maxim 1910 machine gun would be a cool ww1/ww2 Russian relic to have too-always thought those looked pretty cool with the little spoked wooden wheels carrage and water jacketed barrel.Even a wooden replica would be cool Smile

Nice gun. I have shooting as a sport and got a Sauer 200 STR. This is a gun who is also used by the special forces in the police. I am also a little gun collector and one of my favourite weapons (wich I dont have in my Collection) is the Colt 1911. Use the gun wisely and take good care of it.

Lever Arms in BC is running a $199 Christmas special !!

A Colt 1911 is a classic !!

Had the opportunity to try one at a firing range last spring. Totally awesome !!

Found out I shoot pretty accurately with my left hand only, as well as with the classic 2-hand grip !!
