I love my Mosin, only thing I don't like is having to clean it with ammonia after shooting. I have a 1931 hex head, 91/30 also a M44, great little carbine. Love taking it to Camp Perry to use in the Vintage Rifle matchs, makes shooters next to me take notice thats for sure. The Mosin is a fine piece of history, that is readily available, inexpensive and fairly accurate. In answer to your question as to whats the difference between a reg. 91/30 and a sniper, is the sniper comes with a scope attachement and scope. The bolt handle is bent down to accomadate the scope. The scope itself is a three recticle little number. Personally, I love these kinds of scopes. When your buying a sniper rifle your buying the scope, and different bolt. As far as I know thats the only difference. If anyone knows something different, I'd love to know.

Well you have heard what everyone has said, so quit considering & get you one, will be one of the best $150.00 bucks you will ever spend on a firearm..............

you better know what you are buying if you buy a "sniper" they are so faked you can't believe it. look to gunboards.com for the most knowledgeable info on the subject.

Thanx guys for all the info. I'll check out gun boards.com. My LGS doesn't have $100 Mosin in stock and I'm not buying 1 off the Internet sight unseen. I'm a novice and want to see it before I buy it.

It's listed under humor but it really sums up the Mosin. Enjoy your "new" Mosin. They can be addictive.

I shouldn't have read that at the office. My boss just called me in to discuss my internet use. Maybe I shouldn't have laughed so hard

A mosin nagant is a fun gun. Should it be your only gun? not no but hell no!

Actually, I could live with my M44 being my only rifle.

Sure would miss those 22s, though.
