The 91/30 Mosin (especially the hex reciever WW2 issue long version) will get the hog job done, trust me.
The Hex receiver was phased out in 1936, they were used during WWII, but not "new" issue. All 91/30's are rifles, not carbines.

If you find a new SKS that too is a decent(er) option.
An SKS will work. More accurate then an AK47.
