Default 125 Yd. Range Report

Well I took my Moisin to my 125 yd. range today and produced the following groups. Both targets are 5 rounds each. The bottom target has an extreme spread of 3.25" and the top target is 2.75" due to a 'flyer, however the top target (2.75" spread)has two groups of two shots touching. My aimpoint was NOT at the center of the target. I aimed at the green outer ring because at 100 yds. I can't see the bullseye. With a scope and some good ammo I'm sure this rifle would be very accurate. Actually in the hands of someone who can see, it would probably be very accurate.

Well m72, for an 80 yr. old battle rifle which has known nothing but corrosive ammo, it's not too bad, certainly good enough for hunting in my woods. As for not wanting to get hit with it, I shot at a 12-14" oak tree yesterday that was 100yds. down range and it passed right through and continued through a 3" sapling several yds. beyond. Loaded with soft points this cartridge would make a real mess of whatever it hits.

Thanks Sgt. - problem with not being able to focus on a bull at 100 yds. is that I'm never sure if it's the gun or me...more than likely it's me

The bolt locks up tight and is quite stiff. The only thing wrong is the bayonet they shipped doesn't push down far enough to engage the slot for the front sight. But I don't plan on stabbing anyone with the bayonet....
Sounds a lot like my 1942 round receiver model. All the numbers match and the bolt slides home with a very satisfying "click." Same problem with the bayonet...can't slide it far enough down to lock in place. Haven't cleaned the cosmoline off it yet and it has a couple of dings in the wood behind the receiver and around the butt plate but all in all, in very decent condition.

Looks nice! Do you know anything about the markings on the receiver? I noticed most of the 1940's vintage guns have the "star". Mine doesn't and I'm wondering if the 1929 date has anything to do with it.

It's possible. The marking shows the arsenal the weapon came from (Collecting and Shooting the Mosin-Nagant 1891/30 - HISTORY). That site only shows 2 but it notes that the Mosins were manufactured throughout Russia.
