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 own an M-39 Finnish rework of a Russian M-91 {not to be confused with the M-91-30. Most of the rifles I have encountered have been top notch as far as accuracy and reliability. Some of the finish may seem a tad lackluster but that is par for the course. Yes the 7.62x54Rmm will compare to the .303 British and the 7.7 Jap. and it is actually closer to the .308 not the .30-06 as mentioned earlier, yes I saw an article years ago in a gun magazine about how the Mosin Nagant was called "The .30-06 of the Red Square" SEVERE misnomer compare the ballsitics on a chart and see why 7.62x54Rmm vs. 7.62x63mm / .30-06. ;>) Be aware that some bore sizes may be as large as .318"! 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.
