    So my buddy owns a gunstore here in town and he always gives me a heads up when he gets good deals in before he puts them on the shelf. he has 5 Russian Mosin/Nagant m91 in 7.62x54 that were made in the 40's that are in great condition, the bores are flawless ther were packed in grease when they got to his store and he said I could have all 5 for $475 (which I have in my gun fund). thats $95 each. What Would You Do?

    oh and I know I spelled Mosin wrong.

    Wow. I had no idea you could get those that cheap, he11 bb guns cost more then these things. but who knows. by the time its time to pass them on to my kids they will be worth something. Im going to get them I just wanted to know what kind of deal I was getting which doesnt seem like a really good deal just a ok investment. Im pretty sure they wont drop in price over the years.

    If they are as nice as you say then $95 each is a decent price these days. You may want to ask to clean up the bore in one just to take a looksee and check for headspace. I think all the Mosins that are coming in these days are re-armored so you never know what is hiding under all that grease. It may or may not be pretty.

    yeah like the guy above you just said by the time you factor in transfer fees and shipping you are gonna be at or above 95..if they are in great condition, its a fair price

    95$ each is roughly the end price if you had a C&R. its not really a steal, but not bad if you have 4 friends who want to go in, or want to grab em while they are cheap but dont have a C&R

    oh, and they are M91/30's not M91. just saying. if you search M91 you will see those are more expensive

    As others have said, $95 is about right as far as end price goes. Take into account that you have the opportunity to actually look them over in person, and it's not a bad deal. If you can get your buddy to clean them up (i.e., de-cosmo them) before you buy, all the better.

    yea he said he was going to clean them up better after i told him ide be there at noon saturday to get them. When I looked at them today after work he had already cleaned them pretty good, the bores are VERY clean, head spacing is fine. I chambered a round in each one to make sure everything worked on them. I gave them all the look over. and yes My father is taking 2 of them and Im keeping the other 3 being I have three sons. I dont normaly buy in bulk like this I just thought it sounded like a heck of a deal and I only have one WW II rifle and its an old arisaka 6mm. Tomorrow is my range day and Im going to pick them up on the way and shoot one of them on the 100 yard line. Ill line em all up and snap a picture tomorrow and the groups it shoots and post it on here. THANKS FOR ALL THE INPUT GUYS.

    by the way, whats C&R. He told me they were M91's didnt say anything about m91/30 but ill see tomorrow. I guess if they are m91's thats even better I guess. I know nothing about these things. wgats the difference?

    Do it. You can bubba 2 and sporterize 1 and still have 2 original arsenal re-tooled and electro-penciled guns for your collection.

    C&R is Curio and Relic license. it lets you mail order old guns.


    M91 is the Mosin model used till 1930. 91/30 is the variation of the mosin usedin ww2.

    if they were made in the 1940s they are 91/30's

    There's couple of cool pics on the "Would you do this to your mosin" thread here. Let me see if I can find it.

    The Soviets did quit making M91's by 1930. However, Tikka and Valmet arsenals in Finland continued making M91's in the 1940's. I have several. Considering transfer fees and shipping, $95 for a M91/30 is a good deal. Have fun, you'll want more!

    Do they come with the usual package of bayonet, ammo pouches, oil bottle and tools? Or just the rifles only? I have a nice 1938 Tula 91/30, but I'm not one of those guys that needs or wants more than one.

    It's not a deal for me, but then I live twenty minutes from a place where I can pick up a select grade bore, hex receiver M-N for for less than $100.00 any day of the week.

    Yes they came with the ammo pouch and all that stuff in it and the spike bayonet. I shot one today on the 100 yard range and shot about 5 MOA which I though was good, If I put a scope on it Im sure I could get 1MOA out to 500 yards with that thing. they have a nice recoil. my shoulder is use to a .223 and these things had a funny sound when I fired them "BOOM,,Ouch". lol

    You'll grow fond of it, trust me. ;)

    I'm still waiting for someone who has horses to organize a tipping tournament using bayonet-fixed 91/30s as the pikes. That would be good Youtube fodder. :D

    I already have. I loved shooting it today. and ammo is cheap. a spam can with like 800 and somthing rounds in it for $100. cant beat that. or my local has em for $2.50 for 10 rounds.
    Im about to order a composit stock for $60 and a scope mount for $30. I really like these. im only going to shoot one and stick the rest in the safe to add to the collection.
