Cosmoline, Wow you must really have a strong grip. I tried that but it kept falling to the floor before I could snap the shot :)

Cosmoline, I was gonna post something smart about overpenatration, but, remembering the background of your Swiss 1911/bicycle combo pics, I'm guessing hitting neighbors ain't a worry for you:)

Back to the topic at hand...

wait... cosmoline, what is with your mosin's front sight?

Cosmoline
November 5, 2007, 08:27 PM
It's a standard Tikka front sight. A little higher than the standard M-91.

Cosmoline, Wow you must really have a strong grip

I was on my back at the time, so gravity helped me. I was trying to get the whole rifle in the frame, but that's not easy with a 52" monster.

My favorite M-39, a Civil Guard marked that was issued to a left-handed shooter judging by the grime patterns on the stock.

Plus a bunch more I don't have pics of.

Yeah, he sleeps in the shed cause his mom won't let him in the house with those nasty dead birds :)

Vaarok, I'm going to guess that L to R, No. 1, 4, 6, and 8 are US made M-91's. No. 5 is Finn'ed

Yeah, he sleeps in the shed cause his mom won't let him in the house with those nasty dead birds

I actually lived in that shed for awhile when I was off grid. It's still up at the Willow compound, under the former roommate management. It's used for tools now. Got mighty cold at times, but I learned how to construct a very nice bed out of old army blankets. You can see part of it. Crude, but fun. I could make dinner on the high powered propane tripod outside and then watch DVD's on the little TV running off a honda 2000. I once shot five or six squirrels in a single morning, all without getting out of bed. I nailed them with the CZ out my open door as one after another came to claim the territory the previous one had just given up.

My Romanian M44 before:

http://inlinethumb11.webshots.com/5066/2579226940100157486S500x500Q85.jpg

Same gun with an Advanced Technologies synthetic stock, S&K mount, and a Leupold 2.5x28mm LER scope. No permanent changes to the gun so I can return it to stock if I ever desire:

:uhoh: Please don't laugh at the rests setup... I was lazy, at an odd angle to my target, and on uneven ground... it worked though.

Question:
Is there anywhere that offers an m91 with PU setup for a reasonable price?
(not original, I'm looking for repro.)

You mean the 91/30? The M91 never had a PU to my knowledge.

Vaarok
November 6, 2007, 06:02 PM
M-91/30. Putting a PU scope on a M-91 (the old one with the curved rear sight leaf) is incorrect and will ruin a $250-400+ rifle.

Photographer;) White canvas backdrop in my studio and a little adjusting in Photoshop to blow out the white as much as possible. Proper lighting is the key, Photoshop and expensive digital camera's can only do so much.
