Many of the 91/30 rifles got new barrels before they were mothballed. The 91/30 can be made into a decent shooter if you get a good rifle. What I mean by a good rifle is a rifle with matching serial numbers that is not counter bored. The Russians did not counter bore new barrels. If you are going to shoot the 91/30 with iron sights the sight radius is a blessing, especially at longer range. Once you get used to shooting the 91/30 it is easy to handle and well balanced. Most 10 lb rifles are heavy in the front and very difficult to shoot unsupported. The only issue I have with the 91/30 is the safety. It is difficult to operate and I haven't found or heard of s way to make the 91/30 safety easy to operate.

There are many more variations, http://7.62x54r.net/MosinID/MosinRef01.htm is a great reference.

Of the subset listed, the Russian M1907 Carbine is extremely rare. Do not pass up a chance to add one to your collection and they will be expensive.

As stated above, the Finnish M39 is a great choice.

To get a shooter, pick up a M91/30.

Timney makes a trigger for the MN that has a safety on it. Awesome trigger that makes the MN a great shooter and not bad for big game either. A bit spendy, (I think about $80) but if you got a good deal on the gun, well worth the money for what you gain.

When the cheap ammo runs out, they will all be inexpensive

Like all of these types of questions, it boils down to "what do you want to do with the rifle?"

The different models are best suited for different applications.
