    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.

    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.

    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

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

    Sure would miss those 22s, though.

    i don't know about the longer bolt handle on the sniper, but a useful piece of range equipment when shooting other mosins with some of the lacquered ammo out there is a rawhide mallet. :D

    i have a few and find the m44's the handiest, but prefer the finn m39.
