Mosin-Nagant M91/30 7.62X54R Very Good Condition
[RI660V]
$139.00
by James M Date Added: Thursday 08 March, 2012
I received my 1938 Izhevsk Mosin Nagant piece of history last Saturday. It only took about 5 days to ship and recieve mine. It came buried in cosmoline but I am really glad it was covered so well. It was preserved it like it was put away yesterday. It took about 5 ½ hours of cleaning with mineral spirits to get all of the cosmoline off. Disassembling the rifle is a sinch and only takes a few minutes but is necessary to get everything cleaned off. Letting the parts soak in mineral spirits about 15 minutes and the cosmoline comes right off. The stock just needs to be repeatedly wiped with a rag soaked with mineral spirits to clean up. A little Scotts furniture cream on the stock and handguards and it looks new. I enjoyed the time cleaning it off because it was like finding a buried treasure. I couldn’t help myself of thinking of the people under the wrath of Stalin that had to hammer these rifles out. Not to mention the solder that had to use it in battle. My 91/30 has some minor character wear marks where the Russian solder’s hands and fingers held the weapon and because it was a 1938 there is almost a 100% chance it was used in battle. Everything on the rifle is great and it certainly doesn’t look 74 years old but more like a 7 year old rifle. The bore and rifling’s are excellent and the stock finish is in very good condition.
The rifle is very accurate but shoots about 6” high at 50 and 100 yards. I am told this is normal when not using the bayonet attach and also the fact that the rifle was normally sighted in at 300 meters. A little piece of heat shrink tubing on the front sight to raise it slightly on now it is dead on accurate at closer range.
