Default Aim surplus

Has any one bought the $69.95 91/30s and how do they look? I'm thinking of ordering 3 and would like some opinions.

Not from AIM, but got mine from Southern Ohio Gun. There is a boatload of the re-arsenaled 91/30s and M44s that the Soviet Union had run through a factory rebuild, and put away in their war stocks. Most are VERY good- did get one that muzzle had been counterbored to take out worn rifling at muzzle. Would respectfully observe that you cannot buy a rusty .22 rifle or a single shot 12 g for $69 any more. Get at least one, and stock up on milsurp ammo while it is still cheap. 20 years ago there was an ocean of milsurp M1 carbine and .303 Enfield ammo that was cheaper than dirt. It ain't there no more.

I have 2 - 91/30's, 1 - M44 and 1 - M38 and all are damn good shooters and in good shape. They are ablast to shoot.

I echo what C3 said in that you can't get a crappy gun for that price. These are built to outlast you and future generations. The surplus ammo is cheap for now so grab some of that while you can. The surplus stuff is corrosive so you have to run really hot water down or windex the barrel after you shoot it to neutralize the salt from the primer. There will also be some cleaning of Cosmoline that you will have to do but well worth the time.

Pretty soon you will be talking about the days when you could get one of these rifles this cheap. Just sayin'.

I got one a couple of months ago from AIM. Didn't get hand-pick -- but it looked just as good as the one they have in the photo on the website.

Grabbed my Hexagonal receiver Mosin Nagant from Aim last year. Looked like it just came from the Tula Arms Plant when I got it.

I ordered last night on line. I think I got the last 3, Their SOLD OUT now. I have one now but have had 2 others, Still haven't got a good shooter. Hopefully I'll get one out of these three. I know most of you aren't gonna like this but I'm thinking of modernizing one of them for a winter project. Will probably have to make most of the components.

Be sure to clean the cosmoline out real good before shooting or a result in sticky bolt will occur. And please give us a range report and tell us how you like it. Good shooting

It may be awhile for the range report, win ter isn't my best season for getting to the range and Ill have 3 to test shoot and clean. I'll be cleaning in an unheated garage.
I went through all the first time Mosin thing three times already so they will be as clean as a whistle when I do get to shoot them. Thanks for the info anyway. Can't wait to get started. Probably next Tuesday before I can pick them up.
