    Default 1942 Mosin Nagant 91/30

    Just picked this up the other day, caked in cosmo. It had all the goodies with it too. It's a 1942 Izh with a correct wartime stock, all matching (Typical refurb style) Only Tula parts on this are the buttplate, which has the pre 1928 Tula hammer, and the rear sight buttons. Now to the bore, This rifle's bore looks almost brand new. It shines like a bathroom mirror. No pitting anywhere. Has two stock repairs at the very front. Taking it to the range this weekend. Take care, George.

    Looks like a beauty! I have a 91/30, an M44 and a Finnish M39 that was built from an 1895 91/30 hex receiver. Great fun to shoot!

    I've got two M44's, and another 91/30, Which is a 1937 Izh and it can't hit the side of a barn even if I try my best. What is mfg date on your M44 and 91/30?

    The M44 is a 1944 Tula and the 91/30 is a 1925 Izzy Hex . Both are solid shooters but the 91/30 had a small burr in the chamber that made ejecting shells very hard. I was able to file it down, though, and it works perfectly.

    The Finnish rifle is really interesting - not only was the receiver made in 1895 - it is one of those contracted from France. I put 5 rounds through it to see how it shoots - tighter and smoother than either the 91/30 or M44.

    You got lucky with that Tula M44. Those are pretty hard to find. All my Mosin's are Izhevsk. Both my M44's are 1944 dated, the other 91/30 is a 1937 dated. I'd love to find a Finnish M39.

    SOuthern Ohio Gun has M39s - about $270, I think. Very good condition - especially considering that the receivers are almost all pre-WWII vintage.

    I'll either have to sell a couple rifles or wait to Christmas to order one, As buying this 91/30 dried up my wallet(140+tax and 2 other things) Good thing about Finn mosins is that most are built on pre 1898 receivers.

    Pre 1898?-most of the receivers for Finnish rifles are hexes but that just means they are pre 1930 or so-the Soviets still made some hex receiver 91/30s to use up existing parts-m39s are usually completely scrubbed of preexisting marks reflecting the complete rebuild that they are-the Finns had rifles from many different sources but the majority were Russian WW1 production as they were made in the largest numbers (including US contract for Russia examples).

    The only original marks remaining on my M39 are the original Sn stamped on the left side of the receiver and the date and circled "C" on the inderside of the rear tang of the receiver. Mine came from the French contract. It's really a nicely made weapon.

    Oh, sorry, I reversed the manufacturers on my 91/30 (1925 Tula) and my M44 (1944 Izhevsk).

    I know what you mean about the Hex receivers just before the they changed them, they are fine rifles. For a rifle in the U.S. to be a antique the receiver has to be built before 1899, so that's what I meant by that. Although I must say the Hex receivers have more appeal over the round receivers. Do you have a M39, Lithglow?
