I am a "three-liner" so I am a bit prejudiced, but for the money, pick one up. The supplies are dwindling and the value is going to go up rapidly. Get one, shoot it, if you don't like it, put it , undmodified, in the gun safe, in five years, you will be happy you did.

Looks like the Russian Czar's double headed eagle... you might have a pre-revolution M1891 Mosin-Nagant.

I presently only have two, a 1930 Tula & a 1938 Tula with hex receivers and all matching numbers. They are fun to shoot and the ammo is/ was cheap. Before Obama it was $68 for 440 rounds today it is around $150 up for 440 rnds in my area. I paid $59.95 for my first Mosin Nagant and $119 for my last one and the LGS have them presently priced at about $200 for a beater.

When I first saw a Mosin in 2008 they where only $99, now I can't even find any.

I've got a 1942 91/30 that I got for Christmas last year. I finally got it to the range this past week and its a shooter for sure. I clover leafed a 3 shot group when I was sighting it in and was able to ring a 9" gong at 100yds every shot after I figured out where it shot. Next time I get to the range ill work on adjusting the sights. I absolutely love this rifle. I've also found a seller online that sells a trigger upgrade kit that comes with a new firing pin spring, a Finnish sear spring and a trigger slack spring. It's now got a decent 2 stage trigger feel to it with what feels to me like a sub 6lb trigger pull. I'm now working on re finishing the stock to a more appealing lighter color. It's turning out beautifully so far.

I really like the old Mausers and I own and shoot several. I would buy a Mosin or two if it wasn't for the constant cleaning caused by the corrosive ammo. For now, I'll stick to the German and Swedish guns.
