    Are you looking for a 91/30, M44, M38??

    Pat has added some more. He has Polish M44's for those looking for one. He has great Finnish rifles also

    Are the antiques wall hangers or shooters?

    Pat does not sell wall hangers. If the receiver is pre 1898 That is what makes it an antique. It could have been rebuilt up into the 1960's. His right now are 1940's. Call him!! He's a real nice guy.

    Some of those are real beauties. I'd love another M38 and some of his are tempting. But, money's tight and I'm hoping to get a Swedish Mauser for my next milsurp.

    I've been here since '07? Been hearing about the '96 or '38 for some time. Get what you can, when you can. Allans Armory has some new Swede's. http://harmonia.meccahosting.com/~a0000ae7/aaresult.php?PageId=59

    Thanks. I am wanting a Mosin rifle. But I have read that the Finnish M-39's are much more accurate. Is this true?

    Yes!!! Antique requires no FFL.

    What would you recommend feeding this rifle? Any specific brands or weights that you find exceptional?

    All my Mosin Nagants like 180gr and above. Some will shoot light ball, 147..152gr well, but not near as well as heavy ball. For military surplus, Yugo 1970's heavy ball is hands down the best. Any 180..203gr hunting ammo will shoot well. Stay away from U.S. made ammo as they use ball powder, not stick. The ball burns to fast and increases recoil.
