Is it a M38 or M44, the M44 has the bayonet on the side.

They sell 91/30`s with laminated stocks at J&G Sales for 100 dollars. Non- laminated they sell for 75 dollars. They include ammo pouch, canvas sling, and a cleaning kit.

+1 on Classic Arms.
I just recieved one of their lamenated 91/30;s. I called first and faxed my C&R, then called back the next day with my order. I went for a Hex reciever of Tula mfg ($10 for each option) and then paid an additional $10 for a handpick selection. Recieved it 3 days later via UPS. A 1932 with very good metal and wood. It was'nt very dirty, a minor wipe down likely would had been enough, but I always like to strip, clean and lube anything once it becomes mine. It arrived in a pretty beat up box and included oiler bottle, tools, sling, ammo pouch, and bayo. The bore is excellent. It appears to have been arsenal redone and unissed since. There were a few very small spots where the refinish in the metal (remember, we're talking MN here) was of Russian quality and a tiny spot of corrosion has started. I rubbed it with steel wool and oiled it. Does'nt show anymore. I have'nt shot it yet, but should be able to get some range time soon. Anyway, total cost delivered to the door for about $133. I'm very satisfied with the deal. Either way, Good luck with the Mosin.

If you don't have an FFL (or if you don't have the ability to get one just yet), or you don't want to pay a transfer fee (which I guess could range from 20 to 100+), I think handselecting a M91/30, M38 or M44 from Century International Arms at a local shop is just fine. Personally I purchased all my Mosin Nagants at Big 5 stores (Big 5 sporting goods). Of course I did not just go and buy the ones they had, I waited for a couple weeks on one model, and during the same week I was also able to find another model, and then a few weeks later (just two weeks ago) I purchased another.

I paid 89.95 + tax for each one, two were in excellent condition (well one was VG according to Century) and then one that is in good to very good condition, but had a special mark on it. So I would shop around, you will find one that will appeal to you. For me I like knowing that they have a little history, and therefore why I searched around for a bit for one that I thought might hold more history to it than another.

Just my two cents.

Check out www.interordnance.com also. They have a huge amount of Mosin's. They were running a special a month ago, ordered an M44 for $55 and a laminated M38 for $70, no handpick. Both were in excellent condition, way better than I figured I was due for the cheap price. The only damage on them was some spots on the wood thanks to the UPS man.:mad: Whoops, no not the UPS man, Interordnance uses Fedex.
