Is a 91/30 worth purchasing or am I wasting my money and should wait and get something else?
The answers you are going to receive will be as diverse has the people who visit this forum. I for one do own and enjoy shooting my 91/30. The key is to see it for what it is, a moderately powered WW2 vintage rifle that's longer than a hookers dream. Ammo is cheap and plentiful albeit corrosive has all get out, and it is suitable for most game in North America. If you don't mind giving it a thorough cleaning after every outing I would say go for it.
Depends on the condition. If the bore is good and it's not way overpriced, yep, they're great shooters and highly addictive.
Prices ranging normally between $100-$150 for a 91/30.
They were built to last so if you can get one that hasn't been shot out, go for it...
For $130 it's the most fun you can have with your clothes on.
There is a shop by me that has raised the prices on everything beyond belief. He raised the price on his mosin's to $300 for a nothing special rifle to $500 for a hex receiver. Nuts!!!
I'm going to have to learn how to say " your out of your fu@*ing mind " in Russian.
Вы в прошлом месяце во внимание
Lmao!! I should have seen that one coming!
Thanks, a local shop had a few for about 125-150 i might pick one up.
They are fun to shoot that's for sure. Not so much fun getting all the cosmoline off tho.
Love mine I say go for it alot of fun for the money
After WW2, when the Soviets had gone to the SKS and the AK47, they took their 91/30s, the M38s and M44s, and ran them thru a depot level rebuild- coated them in cosmoline and put them away in their war emergency stocks. A few years back, they started selling them on the global market. Most are in excellent mechanical condition, fair to good bores, new wood.
You can't buy a rusty .22 for what you would pay for a 91/30- a 500 yd rifle.
They do grow on you, $79.00 and $50.00.
The one on top is a three shot....Red dot scope on top, Red/Green on bottom.
1929 Izhevsk Hex reciever 91/30
1953 Hungarian M-44 Carbine
91/59 Carbine made with a 1942 Izhevsk 91/30 They are cool guns to shoot especially with a group of folks around. 2 of my 3 are very accurate and have killed deer. Some ammo like S&B, Privi Partisan, Wolf Gold, Wolf Black Box Steel Cased, Hornady and others arent corrosive and actually pretty accurate and clean shooting.
I paid $179.00 for the 91/59. Thats my most expensive one so they can be had for not alot of money if you look around and find a deal. Surplus ammo is cheap and has been plentiful. If you like cool old bolt action rifles, you will love Mosin Nagants.
If I had the room. I'd have a lot more
There is good ammo avail. I reload mine...I know it's not corrosive. The ones available here in Eastern Ky. are not in that good of shape,I'd like a nice one, but until then....
Forget the 91/30 and get a M27 or M39. Finnish Mosins are awesome.....
Love it lmao!
I have also been toying with the idea of buying a Mosin. I've seen on Gun Broker where the price as raised in the last month. Still not too bad though if you shop around. A few on there for $300 but they come with all the accesories, a bayonet, and a hard case. Some are even throwing in some brass on the deal. I think I'll buy an M1 Garand first though.
Get the Garand!!
I want a Garand sooooooo bad
The CMP has them starting at $525 and cheap surplus ammo, that would be what I'd get instead of a 91/30
