I actually like that look for some reason. I wouldnt mind maybe turning down the handle and using it as a fun gun to use cheap 7.62x54R ammo in.
It is odd for an American classic style stock like that to be put on a Russian gun but at least the stock work looks very nice with a good fore-end tip and everything. I wouldnt mind more close ups to be honest.

Jim the bolt man. If I ever get around to sniperizing mine, that's who I'm going to get to modify my bolt.

Found out Form an uncle that my grandfather was given the gun. The stock was in bad shape (cracked and broken). Went into his shop and found the old stock. Don’t know if he fitted the new stock or not, but knowing him he most likely did. The old fellows back then didn’t have internet back then. Going to break it down to clean when I do ill post the stock with close ups for you.

The PU 91/30 used a high wall receiver, not a low wall. On the left side of the receiver, if it is scalloped, the PU scope mount will not attach correctly.

If the scope, mount, and bolt cost $500.00, (probably some gunsmith work as well) why not just put $200.00 more with it and get an authentic WWII Russian sniper from Rguns?

If you put the scope on a run-of-the mill 3-4 MOA rilfle, you will be all dressed up with no place to go.

If you decide you don't like the altered gun and stock, you will never get your money out of it, and will have trashed a stock, bolt and receiver for naught.

your right on all counts. But, mine in particular is hitting beer cans at 100 yds. And, an extra $200 is still $200.

I already have the rifle, and if I come across a deal like seen above, plus chump change for the bolt man to turn down the bolt handle, that's gonna add up to make the difference more than $200.

Rifle: $120
Jim's service: $47, call it $55 after shipping and everything.
Getting lucky on ebay: $179
Total: $354

Sniper 91/30 found on gunsamerica: $750

Difference: $396

One thing I did notice while browsing GA, the prices are rapidly rising on the mosins on their site.
