They tend to look pretty good, because the Russians arsenal preped them before puting them in long term storage. they did stock repairs, bolt replacments. rebluiongs, recrownings, counterborings where required, then dipped them in grease, and stacked them in caves and warehouses.

There's something great about shooting Mosins. I have a great

1925 Izzy hex with all matching serials.

Yes you can hunt with them. In the best of circumstances, 200

yards, with iron sights, is very do-able for these rifles. One day,

however, you will have saved enough for a really good hunting

rifle. And the Mosin will do the job, till you can afford the lighter,

more accurate, scope-ready, high performance bolt action.

Meanwhile, work your way through the better ammo, Hornady,

Speer, and Barnes, to mention a couple.

Considering the average deer kill is made inside of 75 yards, I sometimes wonder about the $$ that get spent on rigs that are capable of shooting deer well beyond 200 yards. Case in point, I took a deer at 60-70 yards this year using my Rem 700 30-06 with the scope set on 4 power. The Mosin with open sights would have been a much better shot as it was a muley going pogo on me. Most tree stand shots in the woods where I live are 50 yards or less.

Do I advocate leaving the 700 at home? Not at all. I hunt out west as well and there are plenty of legitimate opportunities out to 350 yards or so. But there are a lot if folks that aren't ever going to take a deer shot over 100 yards. For a good shot, a rifle like the MN is all they would ever need.

Yes the shot is 75 yards. But if you aren't using optics beyond 400 yards,

you're going away empty-handed, most of the time. The rifle scope,spotting

scope, and decent binoculars are key for successful hunting, it's not just

about that 75 yard shot, which is a mean average, between the long and the

short shots. Remember, in this case,only the shots which bring down deer

are counted.

If you spend more time in the field, and less time on theory, you'll know this.


That hot-shot 300-yard rifle which succeeds in bringing down the

Bucks is what makes that "average(successful) shot" 75 yards, in the

first place. The sad fact is, that for a variety of reasons, many folks with

good rifles miss shots at 30 to 60 yards.

To quote Charlie Brown, "oh good grief!"

Theory? I spend plenty of time in the field. If you are gonna get preachy and presumptuous you might want to know who you are talking to. Clearly you do not

Makes me wonder sometimes why no love for the 1903 Springfield? Nobody ever debates it, or wants it bad, nothing close to what the M gets. Is there more to it than the price?

Availability is an issue. That's what I have found- would love to have one, don't want to pay an arm and a leg tho

7.62x54r .net has good info in MN rifles.

The "r" you see is a Cyrillic "g". It was a common date suffix basically indicating AD in the date. If the stock has a square with a diagonal line through it, that means it was gone through and refurbished before being stored away.
