The reason I've decided to go with the Mosin 91/30 is the price vs. power. Until I have more to invest in a better bolt action, I'm going to start with a Mosin.

Then, in that family, it becomes really easy to spend 3x the money for a rifle that isn't at all 3x better.

For $120 bucks and ammo that still lives around .25c a round, it is REALLY hard to beat.

Mosin 91/30 are milsurp but most are brandnew as the soviets made hundreds of millions and put em into storage where they sat for decades before being sold as surplus.

With decent ammo they are easily moa shooters. There isnt a single gun in double or even triple their price range that is more durable or can outshoot one.

Default this may help

The Russian rifle known as the "Rifle Model 1891/30" (vintovka obrazets 1891/30 goda) or what we commonly call in mil-surp speak - the Mosin-Nagant 91/30 rifle was adopted by the Soviet Army in 1930. The 1891/30 was an improved version of the Russian Model 1891 infantry rifle that was designed by Russian Army Captain Sergei Ivanovich Mosin, with major design contributions from Belgian arms designer Leon Nagant. It was carried during WWI, the Russian Revolution, and by the end of WWII over 17,000,000 1891/30 rifles had been manufactured and used in defense of Mother Russia. The 1891/30 was the main battle rifle used by the communist forces in Korea against the UN Allies and was found on many North Vietnamese during the Vietnam war.

The most commonly found Mosin-Nagant 1891/30 rifles were manufactured in either the Izhevsk and Tula Arsenals, although records show the rifle was made at many arsenals in Russia.

Arsenal Symbol
Izhevsk (arsenal mark: triangle w/upright arrow inside)

Tula (arsenal mark: star w/upright arrow inside)

Cartridge: 7.62 X 54mmR

Like the others have said, I would go with a Mosin Nagant. It's cheap, reliable, powerful, accurate, rugger, and so on. I hunt with my PU scoped Mosin Nagant or my Ex Sniper Mosin Nagant.
