RUSSIAN HEX Mosin Nagant M91/30 7.62X54R
by Michael K Date Added: Tuesday 10 September, 2013
This was my first firearms purchase from Bud's. I placed the order over the phone. Bud's customer service was excellent! I paid with a money order right before the Labor Day weekend so it took about 10 days to get to my FFL. I had a great transaction with the FFL (who very kindly discounts his fee for military and veterans!)

I am very pleased with my purchase from Bud's! The rifle that I received was a 1931 Tula, all numbers matching and 3 digits (169) to boot!!! The Tula star was very sharp and distinct. It was very lightly coated with cosmoline. After diasassembly, there was no visible rust at all. I would rate the bluing at 90%-95%. The bore was a little dark but I anticipate it clearing up really well. The barrel had strong rifling and was not counter bored. The bolt was shiny with a light coat of cosmoline and was correctly headspaced. The stock is in great shape with no gouges or cracks. It was grimy and I will have to do some work on the escutcheons to get them looking sharp. The butt plate has some character and serves to remind that this is a military rifle that has seen hard service. Additionally, the rifle came with a non-numbers matching bayonet (that easily fit!), the headspace/takedown tool, oiler, and two muzzle crown caps from the cleaning kit. All in all, I feel like I really came out ahead on this transaction! Other dealers are asking $250-$300 for their hex receiver Mosins or they want you to pay a premium for Tula manufactured rifles.

I will definitely do more business with Bud's! Tomorrow I'm going to order a Type 53. Hopefully I have an equally great experience with that rifle! Thanks Bud's!!!
