Mosin-Nagant M91/30 7.62X54R Very Good Condition
by Chris L Date Added: Wednesday 04 April, 2012
I didn't know what to expect when I picked up my 91/30 from my FFL. He said that he had to take it out of the box to get the ATF S/N for the paperwork and that it looked ok. Covered in cosmoline, but it looked like it was in good shape and all the accessories were there (including the bayonet, two sided oil can, two double ammo pouches, and a tool kit). The first thing I noticed was how shiny the crown of the barrel was sticking out of the box.

When I got it home, I took it out of the box and yuck. Ok, its covered in that crap. I noticed a bit of corrosion on the brass sling slot reinforcements (or whatever they are called). Some bluing was discolored on the receiver, and the stock has some scuffs on it. All in all, not too bad for an 80 y/o rifle. I shined a light down the bore (before cleaning) and there is some dust, but its nice and shiny. I wiped enough gunk off to see that the S/N on the receiver, bolt handle, floorplate and butt plate all match. I am now the proud owner of a Izhevsk M91/30, made in 1932. It has the hex receiver as was the standard before 1935. It shows no evidence of ever being fired.

This is a working piece of history. I will begin my search tomorrow for some non-corrosive ammo at a reasonable price.

There is a website at 7.62x54r.net that has a wealth of info on all the variants of the Mosin-Nagant. It even covers the case head stamps so you can figure out where your surplus ammo came from.

As always, Buds shipped it fast and it got here in one piece. And thanks for those long gone folks in the former USSR for making such a cool rifle.
