I just got back from the local gunshow with mine. It is the hex receiver and is in pretty good shape. Came with a bayonet but no sling, but I found one at another table at the show. What a bargain at $89. I can't wait to shoot it. Probably going out tomorrow.

Also go a CZ-82 for a great price. What a great day!

What is the verdict?

For a given bore condition, if a MN 44's pattern is about 6-8" at 50 yards
(as with mine), then about how much better, on average is the 91/30 with the same (HB) Bulgarian ammo?

Would it but about half the size of a 44/s loose so-calledgroup?

My 91/30 shoots 2-4" at 100 yds. with everything I feed it.

I've owned a hex 1899, a hex 91/30 and the M44. The 91/30 was impressive. Better than the 44; if you don't use the bayonet, the 44 won't shoot worth a darn. The bayonet is critical on that model.

Find a nice hex 91/30 and have fun. I did!

The Mini-14 operated without a single glitch, and had a loose-fitting plastic 30-rd. Promag.
In contrast, a buddy's WASR AK had a misfeed after about 80 rounds (Not bumpfire).
Only sold the Mini 14 to pay for the LE #5 "Jungle Carbine", as I enjoy and prefer the slightly firmer recoil of 7.62 ammo versus 5.56 (.223).

The SKS:
1) Costs a bit less than a Mini, and is very dependable.
2) Has reportedly been the best value for a .30 caliber military semi-auto rifle. And you never need to remember to locate/insert a magazine, which is often stored separately for other rifles. In a post-disaster situation, it will be there.
Even a friend who is a very careful, methodical planner (from Essen, Germany) once forget his AR mag when leaving home.

Mini-30, Norinco SKS, MN 44, Lee-Enfield #4, #5, Savage .22.
