Default Mosin nagants rock

First off when you star shooting, you'll get everyone's attention such is the boom! out of the 7.62x 54r.

As for accuracy 51 or so inches should mean something. A long barrel and tight groups go together. Furthermore on a standing position at 50 yards good groups are possible, holding my elbows close to the body gives good control over target acquisition.
About the condition, never heard anyone complaint about a shot out barrel as of yet, the crown on those rifles have been reworked

A good addition for the rifle is a scope, I've see this one with s& H is about $150


here which is cheap compared with the real item which is almost $500

A cool enhancement on the iron sights is this one, luminescent sights from glow-on.com really help at indoor ranges check this link on the vendors display in this forum

At $90, I'd go ahead and get two.

Well, I'm now the proud owner of a mosin nagant m91. I had just got the cosmoline cleaned off and went to fire the rifle, it was then I discovered that the man behind the counter gave me a box of 8mm instead of 7.62x54r. so I'll have to wait another day or so before I can actually fire the rifle. For less than $100 I don't think I can go wrong. The bore on the rifle looked in good shape and the barrel appears to have been recrowned. I am anxious to see what it will do at the range. Thanks to all for the info and advice, Ron

$100 for a rifle, $90 for 440 rounds you can't get any more fun for your money than that.

The 91 is over 100 years old and shoots fantastic.

Here is a good starting point for you: Collecting and Shooting the Mosin-Nagant 1891/30 - HISTORY

Read the article on "Sticky Bolt Syndome"- or carry a chunk of 2x4 to pound on the bolt.

Milsurp ammo is cheap (for now- will not last forever) but corrosive primed. Not a problem- after shooting, wash out the bore with hot soapy water, rinse, dry.

Kicks like a sonofagun. Get a slip on recoil pad.

Fun shooter for the price. One of the few real bargains left in the gun world. Bear in mind that a decent .22 rifle will cost you more than a 91/30, or a M38, or M44.

If you are looking for the finest Mosin Nagants then the ones built by Remington wins hands down. The fit and finish on them is supurb. Most Mosin Nagants were built in wartime and fit and finish was an unnessasary luxury. The Remington Mosins and for that matter the Remington Berthiers built for France are georgous.

Aw yes, It does appear that since I have a box of 8mm and no rifle that I need a mauser Every cloud has a silver lining.
