Great price for a laminate. Too bad you did not buy ammo a few years ago. $90.00 would get you 880 round delivered. The best ammo hands down is Yugo Heavy ball 1970's/'80's era. Brass case w/ a 182gr bullet. Hard to find now.

I recently picked up a 1938 91/30 for $75 and do not regret it one bit

My first Mosin was 1939 with a beatup laminated stock, counter bored. I never heard of them at that time but thought it wouldnt have to be much for $99. It came with all the bells and whistles. It had no cosmoline to speak of. The range was on the way home so I bought 4 boxes of ammo of which maker I don't know. First round, stuck bolt. Im thinking,no wonder the Russians needed help. Second round, very sore hand after getting the bolt open. I managed to beat 2 or three more rounds through. I took this piece of crap home and started researching it. I did several of the stuck bolt fixes. Back at the range I managed to coax a 5 MOA group out of it. This could be fun to own a better one. A month later I bought one that is pretty nice and after all the necessary tweaks the best i got out of it was 8 MOA. 5 wasn't so bad. I had already given the first to my Stepson. A year later he hadn't shot it yet and told me a 22 would be more useful to him to teach his boys shooting. I traded an almost new Mossy 702. He was happy and knowing the tricks and secrets of the Mosin it now shoots about 3 MOA . Since then I've bought 4 more but my favorite is the first one. I'm pretty sure there will be more to come. They can be great guns, just ask the Finns.

I bought mine from my local Gander Mountain. It was $100 and came with 2 ammo pouches, a bayonet, and a cleaning kit. I was lucky and got one that was in pristine condition. Beautiful stock about 5lb trigger pull and super smooth bolt. I put on a bent bolt and scope. I still need to take it out to shoot with the scope. My iron sights were shooting about 5ft high

I take a piece of that wire shrink insulation, slide it on the front post, hit it with a bic lighter and trim off a little at a time until iget the proper elevation. Cheap and super easy!

A down and dirty fix for the " stuck bolt" problem, which is usually

caused by dried cosmoline in the chamber.

Get:

1)A dollar store dish-washing sponge. They come in

cellophane stacks. Be SURE it's teflon safe plastic.

2)A pieced or collapsable rifle cleaning rod

3) A VSR drill, preferably cordless

4) Hoppes or your fave cleaner

5) A 30-cal bore-brush

Take the green plastic scourer off the dish sponge

Wrap it clockwise around the bore brush. Tie it on

with dental floss if you have to. Use a

spent 7.62x 54R shell to judge proper diameter,

it should be just a bit larger. Attach the brush to a

section of cleaning rod. With the bolt open and back,

pull the trigger and pull the bolt off the back of the

slide. Attach the cleaning rod section to the drill.

Dip the brush lightly in hoppes. Run the saturated

brush/scourer into the chamber, and run the drill

while working it back and forth. BE SURE you

use a teflon-safe plastic scourer, or you'll

be prepping your rifle to chamber .50 Cal...

After a few seconds or so with Hoppes, clear the chamber

and lightly oil it with thin lubricant(NOT WD-40)

There real nice man, enjoy! Word to the wise, don't let the edge of the butt plate hit your collar bone. It may sound a bit dumb, but it's so wide that it's actually pretty easy to let that happen. you'll know it if it does.

Give us some pics brother. And check out the sticky on cleaning the Mosin, it's quite useful.

Did you get the firing pin wrench/screwdriver combo tool? That's pretty much a must have.
There are kits which have the wrench, and a cleaning kit tool set for the

Mosin cleaning rod (which comes in handy in a pinch) for @16$.

The Russians at Stalingrad were going into battle against seasoned

Wehrmacht troops with 5 bullets

and a rifle for every other soldier. I must say the Russian

Infantryman sets the standard for courage.
