I've got a 91/30 and an M44. I love them. I can't give you specs, but they are a blast to shoot. A 91/30 with a hex receiver will go for around a 100 bucks today- less online, but once you pay transfer fees, etc, it comes out about the same. A round receiver example will probably run you a little less. The hex receiver is a bit stronger, but you probably won't run into any issues with a round receiver model. My m44 has a round receiver and as far as I'm concerned it's a better firearm than my 91/30 (based on the condition and build quality of my individual examples).
