    Welcome to the FTF forum, by the way. The Mosin Nagant 91/30 are truly great rifles that can be purchased for relatively cheap dollars just about anywhere. I thought about getting me one when I decided suddenly upon a Chinese Norinco SKS instead. :)

    Hey there, SLB. Welcome to the FTF.

    Do your research, and get

    your preferred Mosins now. The word is getting out,

    and the well is drying up.

    "Miserable oil can"? I find it very handy, as it is still

    sound, to bring small amounts of Mobil1 and ATF

    to the range, for field cleaning barrels. Especially

    the ones shooting corrosive combloc ammo.

    But you must have a lot of high quality, compact, metal

    containers, with tight threaded lids available at stores

    around you. Would you kindly send me details, so I can order

    some, please ?

    PB, a buddy of mine just got a clean Chinese SKS with

    the cruciform bayo. What a beautiful rifle. How much did it

    set you back, if you don't mind me asking?

    Don't know if I would really choose it to go rabbit hunting... but I suppose you could actually kill a fly with a sledgehammer.

    Bayonets were not originally serialized to the gun, IIRC.

    All the S/N were forced match during the post WWII refurbishment so that's pretty common.

    Sounds like you got a good deal.

    Supplies run out, demand rises, and so does cost.

    In the acquisition of our Mosins, some of us were

    knowledgeable and experienced, but

    some of us just got lucky. Is it an Izzy or Tula?

    Hex or round receiver?

    What year? Any capture markings?

    Are you interested in selling it, or something?

    If there is a star wiht an arrow, it is Tula manufactured. An Izshevsk would have an arrow in a triangle or early ones had a bow and arrow. Probably not made in Georgia, but possibly imported to Georgia.

    More than likely it's a round receiver, the hexes had run out by

    @1936. By '42 the war was

    upon them. It says "Republic of Georgia" in Russian?
