erlick, A sling is $10.00 from a number of wholesalers. What "scope" are you talking about? 91/30's were issued w/ iron sights. If you have an ex-sniper, where are/were the holes in the receiver?

If it's a sniper model, it'll also have a bent bolt with a cut out stock (inlet for the bolt handle) There were two types of scopes that came with these rifles the most common being the PU type. In any event, you gotta love these rifles.

Cheers

3 types of 91/30 snipers: Pu, PE, PEM. There were 5 distinct scopes used.

I stand corrected.. Thank you jp I guess I was including the PE and the PEM as the same even though they are slightly different. I am not aware of the other two though ??

Well let me think

5 91/30's (Two of them SA Stamped Barreled ones)
1 91/59
1 M38
1 M39
1 M44
1 M91 New England Westinghouse

Now I need an M27 and a Remington.

I have seen many RARE .308" bore sizes too.

The projectile is of the .311" size which is suitable for those that may own a .303 British, 7.7 Jap., etc.
What you are missing is that for modern military cartridges you have the..
8x57 1898
.303 1903
7.62x54r 1903
.30-06 1906

These dates are for spitzer FMJ bullets, they were all grouped together because it started the greatest arms race in history. The U.S. lagged behind and paid a license fee to Germany for copying the '98 action until we entered WW1.

The 7.7 Jap came in 1939, just to clarify.

I know exactly what you mean. I also own the rifles in the calibers you mention. I have quite a few "milsurps" and I also have my own forum that I co-own with a good friend of mine as well. I've been around the block one or two times myself.
