Mosin Nagant M91/30 7.62x54R Laminated Stock Excellent Condition
by Melanie W Date Added: Friday 07 September, 2012
I just received today this Mosin-Nagant today, cleaned it superficially, and can say the following: BLUF: I like it, and would buy another. Long winded version: Most importantly, the bore has an evident shine, even through the coating of cosmoline that is in it. It was also nice to find that this rifle was not counterbored. The rifle's bolt, barrel shank and butt plate all have matching stamped serial numbers. Only the magazine floorplate is non-matching. But it's old number was neatly stamped out with a line, and the force-matched serial number stamped in (not electro pencilled) evidently by the armory that refurbished it. The rifle I received was manufactured by Ishevsk in 1943. It has a round receiver with a dark colored laminate stock in near perfect condition. The stock is straight, no pistol grip to it at all, and it has a reinforcing bolt roughly at the wrist, in addition to the "usual" M-N reinforcing bolt farther forward. The accessories were in approximately VG condition. My only complaint about the entire transaction is that the oil/solvent bottle, slathered in cosmo) was shipped in the same bag as the canvas sling and ammo pouches. It managed to stain the canvas and leather parts in several places. Which's too bad, as Bud's accessories were in better condition than most I have seen lately. The only other possible bummer - it is unclear how much cosmoline the stock has actually absorbed. The exterior of the wood was lightly slathered in cosmo, and still has a gummy feel after removing all the exterior cosmo, so it may well have sunk in. That may be a task to leech out of the stock if one's picky. All metal surfaces were [of course] thickly slathered in cosmo. But the cosmo on this rifle is of a petroleum jelly consistency, pretty easy to remove unlike the very gummy or completely dried out, crusty cosmo that is common and laborious to remove. It's part of the ritual, anyway. Prices are rising on M-N in general. This one may be a good buy, now, even though it's risen ten simoleons in the past week.
