    Among other things I enjoy Mosin Nagants and have several. Anyone else?

    I've got a couple, both Russian. Great deal at well under $100 each and lots of fun to shoot, as long as the ammo doesn't dry up.

    Mmm, I gots to get me an M91. I ordered one from AIM once, but I returned it because it didn't pass the headspace test. I got a Froggy MAS 36 instead.

    Where'd you find Mosin headspace gauges?

    I've got a 91/30 and a M44. I'd like to get a bunch of us together for a Russian Day Shoot somewhere.

    Had three. Gave one to my father so now I'm down to two, and M44 and a 91/30 with an ATI stock. Mosin's make excellent gifts!

    Shameless plug. for those of you looking for ammo for your russian war machines, a bunch of us are doing a bulk ammo buy from century, so that means free shipping. I need your order no later than 9pm on thursday night (1/28/09)

    91/30 (great barrel!)
    M38 (a bit counterbored but still fun to shoot)
    Finn M39 (nicest of the bunch!)

    Hotshot is not bad ammo at all. We picked up the last one at the December Rose city show in Portland. There were quite a few nice Mosins at the show last weekend! Still a bargain by all other standards! Ammo is going up fast though. Used to be able to get a 400 round tin for $60, now, it's averaging about $90-$110.

    Mosin's are known for tight chambers and sometimes will not allow cases to be fully seated into battery or extracted due to cosmoline in the chamber. My brother's M44 would not chamber a round so we polished the chamber with a 9mm brush on an electric drill using CLP. Don't go too much though. Spin it, check it, spin it, check it.

    Now, it works great and nothing gets stuck!

    Good luck! Mike

    I have a pretty nice 91/30, lots of fun to shoot and the bore is in good shape so it's surprisingly accurate. Even though it cost me $50 it's still one of my favorite guns.

    I have a hex 91/30, a round 91/30, and an M44. When I get around to it I want to order a couple more hex 91/30's and a Finn of some kind. The M44 can be pretty brutal, but I love the 91/30's. Just something wonderful about that bayonet :D

    Well, not many: ex-sniper 91/30, M28/76, and two M39s.

    Me and Hitman just ordered each of us a m91/30 from classicarms.us

    They've got a really good lot of them right now for $90 each
