There are quite a few different 91-30s. Round receiver, or square receiver. Solid wood stock, or laminated. Some have red lettering, some white, and others no color at all. Look it over for rust. See if the numbers match on the bolt, receiver and butt plate. Try to get one that includes the bayonet, sling, and firing pin depth gauge.
Clean the chamber well before firing. Get all the cosmoline out of it.

Here is some good info on them. A Brief Overview of the Mosin-Nagant Rifle

Hex receiver


Round receiver.

Jeepster- a gun becomes a C&R one of 3 ways-
1. Being 50 yrs old.
2. BATFE is petitioned (usually by museum curator) to designate a specific gun as a C&R
3. Gun is already on the C&R list published by BATFE.

In the case of the Russian 91/30, it is on the list by name. Without regard to age (and I do think they are all 50 yrs anyway) if a gun is listed, it IS a C&R. ALL Winchester Mdl 88 rifles, ALL Colt Woodsman pistols, etc. Here is a link to the list.

Budsgunshop.com...$109.00, ship it to your LGS, mil-surp ammo, while corrosive, 440 rounds for under $100.00. It doesn't really matter much about matching numbers or mix and match parts, it'll be worth about the same because there are just millions of these things floating around. Do your basic check like you would on any used gun, get a bigger safe because these things multiply like rabbits...not kidding, I bought one and they've reproduced to three. Best thing about these guns, besides the price is the history. Chances are, if it was manufactured before the mid 1940's it saw action somewhere. It's just a super cool gun to have and think about, modify the h**l out of it...(blasphemy) or leave it as is, best hundred bucks I ever spent!!

Love my M91/30...when you get it, this is a good place to start for identifying your rifle:
http://7.62x54r.net/MosinID/MosinID.htm.......also try J&G Guns (Prescott, Az) their website has a free manual for the rifle to download, buy a limb saver, the steel butt plate is not comfortable after a few clips....

This has been around for a while but I haven't seen a link to it lately: a comparison of the AK47, the AR15, and the Mosin-Nagant:

Mosin Nagant Humor* AK vs. AR vs. Mosin Nagant

My favorite part is the accuracy comparison. With an AK you can hit the broad side of a barn from inside, with an AR you can hit it from 600 meters, and with a Mosin you can hit it from two counties over.

Depends on the ammo. BTW, 2 rounds and a hotdog is chared and split. Light ball produces the best fireball. You don't notice it untill the sun starts to set, then it blinds you.

I've had that saved to my bookmarks for a while.

My favorite is "you can bayonet your enemy on the other side of the river without leaving the comfort of your hole"

But really I love the whole thing.
