Mosin-Nagant M91/30 7.62X54R Very Good Condition
[RI660V]
$143.00
by Derek S Date Added: Monday 14 May, 2012
Overall, I'm happy with my Mosin 91/30. I received a 1939 Tula round receiver model. All metal parts were in excellent shape as advertised. The stock initially didn't look too bad, but as expected had a good deal of cosmoline covering it. I did notice the butt had aplit and a piece below the bolt had both been broken off but had been arsenally repaired. For a WWII gun that had likely seen service I was not too surprised. The surprise came when I very thoroughly cleaned (Simple Green and low heat) the cosmoline off and discovered the finish to be in worse condition then previously thought. There was a ton of cosmoline absorbed into the wood and it is possible that slowly melting it out solubulized the finish. The broken butt also fell apart when the cosmoline melted out of the crack. After repairing that and carefully refinishing so as to not remove cartouches or battle scars, I now have a beautiful 91/30. Perhaps I got one that had just had a rougher life, but be prepared for extensive cosmoline removal & potential need to refinish if you don't want an ugly gun that sweats cosmoline. Still I don't mind the extra work for a great piece of history. During refinishing, discovered a couple tiny pieces of shrapnel hiding under cosmoline deposits. on the hand guard. I left them there, now visible and protected by the new finish.
