I wish I could find the exact history on mine too. It's a 1938 Tula. All I can find is that if it's war time production then it likely killed nazis...close enough for me.

Congrats to all of you who have picked up one of the best firearm bargains around. Where else can you buy a factory refurbed, hi-powered rifle, that fires a round similar to an 06, but cost less than .20 per round. If you got a good barrel, and most of them are, it will be accurate enough for most shooters needs. And they are just fun to shoot.

Add to that, the fact that you are getting a historic artifact, that you can play with, and it just don't get much better.

There is a lot of very good information on the net about these rifles, their markings, and their history. There are a lot of people that are quite facinated with these guns and are happy to share their knowledge with newcomers.

I, myself, own more than one.

I picked up 1942 mosin nagant 91/30 at fleet farm. I knew a little bit at the time and was looking for a m44, but no luck.
Heres the thing I paid $440 because it has the pu scope. I thought it was great. Turns out the scope is reproduction. I took it to the range shoots great with iron sights, but no luck with scope. I zeroed everything in and then tried to loosen the calibration screws and nothing worked. All and all I have $100 gun that looks cooler. Any have any knowledge on these things let me know. Thanks

I don't think any came grok any factories with a synthetic stock. My step brother bought a synthetic stock from ATI, and eventually put the wood back on. He said the synthetic stock made it too light, there for uncomfortable to shoot.

Remington could never compete with a $79.00 rifle. Remington and New England Westinghouse did indeed make these guns a hundred years ago, for a brief time. They bring a premium price, ($300.00 and up) though they are really no better than the Tula or Izhevsk rifles.

If you like the 91/30, wait till you shoot a carbine version. (M-1938 or M-1944)
You will get a blast out of those. After that, you can buy the Chinese version of the M-44, the T-53. The T-53 can be bought for under $100.00 delivered, today! It will not be refurbed, and will look like it was used to beat a tank to death, but will probably be a great shooter.

I have found no better way to clean a cosmoline loaded Mosin Nagant than to strip it to it's component parts and pour boiling water over it. Take the stock off, boil a gallon or so of water, take it out in the yard and give the metal a bath. I say in the yard; if there is a woman in your life, you don't want to do this in her sink or bath tub. It is a lot less work than any other method, and I have tried plenty. While it is still stinking hot, wipe it down with a clean rag, then clean it with Hoppes or whatever else you like. You can safely clean the stock with 409 or whatever household degreaser you have, then follow up with some lemon oil. The stock will continue to seep oil when it gets hot, but carry a rag to the range to deal with it. One thing to avoid is cleaning the stock with anything with alcohol in it as that will ruin the finish.

I also use the same method after shooting. (you get used to it)
