    My First Mosin-Nagant 91/30

    ]I had looked at a Mosin-Nagant 91/30 at a local gun shop last year, they had about two dozen of them. The "cheaper" ones were $99 but a bit on the rough side. The others were a bit more but I declined.

    Well, today I dropped by on my way to my work area and I broke down and bought a nice 1942 Izhevsk Mosin-Nagant 91/30 for $118 + what I rendered unto Caesar. It came with a bayonet, sling, oil can, cleaning kit and a pamphlet printed in English on how to use it. Needless to say, I am happy.

    I texted my wife at work saying I was tempted to buy it. She replied that since my birthday is Sunday (9/11) to go ahead and get it, but she gets to shoot it too. Said yes, big time. I don't have any pictures yet, I know a thread about a firearm purchase is basically worthless without them, but it is a typical one. Russia and other countries made something like 30 million of them so it isn't like there is a shortage.

    Now I can't wait to try this puppy out and see how it blows holes in targets.

    Congrats, really, I think everyone should own a mosin or two.

    Ammo is still cheap, and as long as the bore is fine they are decently accurate.

    How else can you get such a powerful, and reliable rifle, at that cost?

    Ok, the picture that I "edited" into the original post is NOT a Mosin-Nagant. Apparently I picked the wrong pic number and it isn't a rifle. I can't edit it out either.

    Here is the "actual" rifle.

    Good purchase. Love mine. You'll notice the sound of the surplus ammo (if you buy it) is quite different. It's more of a WHOOOOMP than a bang or pow. Awesome sound it is.

    Congrats on your purchase and Happy Birthday. I've got an M38 (carbine version) which I've modified considerably which I am taking Elk hunting in December. They are very accurate and fun to shoot. I'm sure you will love it.

    Who'd ever thought that those tricky Russians could make a rifle that would look like a refrigerator. Amazing !


    Seriously, congratulations on the Nagant, I have two of them. Lot's of gun for the money.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I thought you decided to skip the rifle for yourself, and you bought your wife a mini-fridge instead!

    Cool loking rifle.
    What caliber are those?

    I am more of a Spanish Mauser 7mm kind of guy.

    I just thought you were being exceptionally clever with the first pic...my Moisin Nagant says "New England Westinghouse" on it.

    Have fun with your new gun!

    I also have an old sporterized Fabrica de Armas Oviedo 7 x 57 Mauser. Now it has a Mosin-Nagant companion in 7.62 x 54R. I will probably never live down the "fridge" pic placed there by accident.

    Be careful......you have just crossed to the dark side. Those commie guns multiply; and will try to take over your gun safe. I made the same mistake you made a couple of years ago, and now have the sickness. Once it happens, you will need to get a Tula, a hex receiver, a Finnish, a M44, a M38 a Polish M44, a pre-war, a German capture, laminate stocks, etc. It just keeps going and going.

    Congrats. The Mosins are fun and well worth the money.

    Congrats & Happy Birthday!

    That was my first centerfire rifle. I had made the Big Time!

    Why did I ever trade it away?
