I'd do it. I have two M91/30s and love them. Can't beat the price on those things for what is basically a Russian .30-06 in most respects except price.
I got mine last year in September just before my 9-11 birthday. It is an 1942 Izhevsk arsenal 91/30 and I scored it for about $120 with no ammo. They were also made at the Tula armory and are basically identical in nature.
Your deal sounds great.
WARNING : Once you have been infected with Mosin-Nagant fever, it just never goes away. I want another one, like an M44 or even another 91/30 just because.
Buy it. Shoot it. Enjoy it.

Properly set up, these are good for 2.5MOA or better if you can hold that at 100 yards.
If you do not want the deal, direct me to the gent and I might just take it!
However, I can guarantee you'll like it. Those 500 rounds won't last long!
I think the price is fair and if it helps him out great. ( no tax no shipping) They cost about 85 bucks plus the background check/ffl fees (if they apply) The ammo is 90 bucks for 440 rounds. So you are getting 500 rounds and a chance to look over the rifle. Some of the mail order rifles are not "selected" so you don't get to see it until after you purchase it and it arrives at your ffl (who may charge you a fee). The rifles shoot very well and can shoot about 1 moa+/- if you know what you are doing. The ammo is corrosive and you will need to look into your cleaning plan for it. Some guys like Windex others soap and water. The soldiers in WWII used to urinate on them or down the barrel, I would not suggest that a public range.
Well I am headed to check out the rifle in a little bit, I will let you all know how it went

I got a 91/30 from a shop in PA from 1938. My Great Grandpa carried one in the Balkin War when he was a soldier for the Ottoman Empire. I Love it, love it. Now I'm going to get the carbine.
Go for it bro. I got one from buds for $112 to my door! But the ammo including tax is $90 so ur getting a decent deal!!!!!!

My LGS has the 91/30 with the PU scope and turned down bolt handle. All the talk in this thread has made me consider getting my current 91/30 a brother.
So i bought the 91/30 and 500 rounds of ammo and he threw in a Simmons 4x32 scope as well. Anyone have any experience with these scopes? I found a mount kit on cheaperthandirt.com for like $40 so I will be purchasing that soon as well.

I know this will probably garner some criticism but if you must put a scope on this thing and you really want a trouble free set up I would drill and tap the thing and put a proper mount on it.
I love my Mosin Nagant's!!! I have 2 of them so far....paid less than $100 for each.
I really enjoy shooting them, and when I do, some of my neighbors come out to see
what I am shooting that makes such a big boom!!! BTW there are some great YouTube
videos on how to clean them and strip them completely down....the best are by Iraqvet888.
