I just bought one of these. Mine is a 1938 Tula. So, pre-war! It's pretty, going to shine up the brass clips, clean the entire thing with a snake and some hoppes, I bought 120 rounds of Surplus ammo for 20$(I know it's Corrosive, but I'll clean right after use anyways.)That's cheaper than .22 ammo.

Next Monday I plan to take it out for some plinking. I'd like to get a scope on it, but I'd have to find a gun smith, I don't want to use a long eye relief scope with this.

Also got some stripper clips, a ammo satchel, and all the good tools. I am removing the steel butt stock in place of a rubber one though, they kick like a mule, supposedly, big round though, bigger than .308

You can get them so cheap! Mine was 149$, but a few months before that, they were 120, before that, as low as 80$.

They are going up in price, a damn fine rifle the money though, hard to do better. I plan to get a bent bolt as well, scope or not, just feels better.

Also they dont have that much kick, I can got thru like 200 rounds without feeling it too much and I have like 0 muscle mass. But the rubber buttpad might be nice if you find the stock too short.

I have 3 mosins. One Tula from 1925, one Ishmash from 1928(both hexa recievers)
And one with round reciever from 1936.

Amazing rifles indeed. They costed me 180-200 euro a piece. Surplus ammo is 220 euro for 880 rounds. Dont worry about it being corrosive. Just properly clean it and you are good to go :)

And please dont put a scope on it :( You can find Mosin nagant snipers, post war as wartime, for rather low prices :( And these are professionally made

Nah, those go for quite abit more 700$ or so.

Wow, you pay quite abit more than me! The Euro is strong than the dollar and I pay 75$ less. 880 rounds of Surplus ammo is 130$ USD, which is 105 Euros.

What prices you pay! How odd, you'd think they'd be cheaper in Europe.

Where do you buy surplus ammo? I only got mine for $90, but the ammo is about buck a bullet. I have not fired mine yet.

By the way, they supposedly had fire adjusted for bayonet attached at all times. not sure if that is true for WW II production.

Please don't, I personally think the cloth wrap makes the rifle look ugly.

The Mosin-Nagant began its long life with a competition to replace the aging single shot Berdan rifles that equipped the Tsarist army. The winning design was Russian Captain Sergei Ivanovich Mosin's rifle, with the addition of the clip feed, magazine spring and feed interrupter of Belgian Léon Nagant's proposal. The original Mosin rifle was made in Infantry, Dragoon and Cossack variants.

Following the victory of the Red Army in the Civil War, the decision was taken to modernise the rifle. The M91/30 was based on the earlier Dragoon rifle, many of which were reworked to the new standard. Improvements included a hooded post front sight, flat rear sight marked in metres, and eventually a change from the octagonal "hex" receivers to round ones. By 1945, 17.4 million M91/30 rifles had been manufactured.

The M91/30 also had some success as a sniper rifle, fitted with either a PE, PEM, or most commonly a PU scope. The mounting of these scopes above the receiver meant that a bent bolt had to be fitted. The Mosin-Nagant rifles were made by Seth Soldier.
