    Crash course:

    Matching serials:Bolt, breech,butt-plate, trigger assembly/mag.

    M44- carbine length-8" shorter than the 48" long rifle, with

    built in bayonet. (There are some clean Polish and Romanian

    units to be found.)

    Get a clean bore, the hex receivers are more valuable than the round.

    Most come with a bayonet, sling, cleaning kit, and oiler.

    For additional info, do a thread search, or go to 7.62X54R.com


    I recommend the M44.

    It's a good time to buy. The market is drying up and prices are rising. It may not be long before you can't get one.

    Mosins are barrel-of-monkeys fun. Ammo is cheap, rifles are cheap. Just make sure you clean it properly after using the spam can corrosive ammo

    As Mountainman said, they are drying up, prices are rising and are at $200 locally now, more than I would pay honestly.

    I have a 1942 Tula 91/30 and love it, but it was only $108. If you have any interest in one jump on it now. Wish I had about 10 of those $100 SKS's...

    How accurate is the 91/30? I saw one at big 5 and really wanted to buy one but right now i dont have the money it was 200$ are these rifles really worth buying? Whats so good about them? I know they are cheap powerful and historical but what else is good about it? What makes a 91/30 a p/u why are the p/u 91/30 so expensive? Is the mosin a necessity in a shtf situation?

    JMHO, but the bird has pretty much flown, on cream of the crop,

    at this point. I'm glad I got mine when I did.

    Semi autos, like Veprs, in 7.62x54R, are starting to emerge.

    The vintage SVT40s ans SVT38s are rising in popularity, too.
