I got 125 in it. Came with the cleaning kit in its pouch and rod, double ammo pouch and bayonet.

It's worth what you paid for it, my advice re stain the stock at most and have a blast with it. Pun intended! There a lot of fun.

Those sell for $100 here. You still did alright though. Clean it and shoot the heck outta it.

the 91/30 goes for anywhere between $75 and $200, depending on arsenal, year, condition, location of sale, and how much the buyer is willing to pay.

I spent over two hours hand picking mine. Invested a total of $180 with the accessories you mentioned, minus the ammo pouches, plus a spam can.

I completely restored mine (the best I could in my own). I also shimmed and polished the trigger. I hear they're sighted in with the bayonet and you will get better accuracy firing it with the bayonet attached. You can get one for 10 bucks, but it isn't going to have the matching serial numbers.

The really cool thing, is you can use bing to look up all the markings on your rifle and figure out its life story.

Mine was built in Russia in 1940, as a training rifle, then got used in ww2, where the stock was damaged from God knows what, then sent to another Eastern European country to get fixed, sent back to battle, where it was probably captured and cosmolined up. You can learn all that by the markings stamped in the stock and receiver.

Cool little rifles!!!
