Is a 91/30 PU with no optic for $500 a good deal? Doesn't seem like it

Im not sure anymore, but there were a few companys selling authentic 91/30 PU's with optics. They are refurbs and might have a later date scope.

If I remember right they were only $500-$600...

did you take the bolt apart ??

Yes but the problem lies with the sear. Too much metal has worn off and it won't catch the bolt as its pulled rearward not will the bolt stay cocked when it closes.

That is what is known as a $500.00 Mosin-Nagant today. Who knows about tomorrow.

One of the best firearms values on the market today is the Chinese Mosin-Nagant known as the T-53 (type 1953) They can still be bought for under $120.00 shipped.

Most of these were heavily used, and the trick is to get one with a bore that is not shot-out. I have bought about ten of them, and two were smooth-bores. I bought the most of them for $80.00 or so a couple of years ago. The smooth bores parted out for over $125.00 so there were no losses on them either.

A few weeks ago, I bought a grab-bag (no hand select) T-53 from one of the large dealers, online. It turned out to have an outstanding bore, was all matching, and the wood was not beat to hell...The only thing missing was the cleaning rod. This rifle was offered at $99.00 with free shipping. I should have bought a dozen.

Century arms has them now, dirt cheap, if you have a C&R. My advice is "don't miss out."

My Mosin is sporterized. By someone else. Barrel is cut down, and original stock cut down. It has the original rear sight, but a custom front sight to accomadate the cut down.

We (my family used it as a beater gun.) And it did get abused. Well I ended up with it, and am currently refinishing the stock, and the gun itself. I still shoot it. In the last ten years a whopping 200 rounds.

These are fun guns to shoot. The best time to shoot is at dusk. That 7.62X54R throws a flame about 5 foot long and 2 foot in diameter.

Anyone have any barrel band retaining pins they would like to get rid of? I see a lot of sport stocks. Thought I would ask, my carbine is in need of the rear retainer.

Thanks
