    Who else out there just loves these sawed-off versions of the Mosin Nagant?

    They are just a blast to shoot - literally! I just love the thump of the recoil and the big fire ball these things produce.

    Here's mine. From L to R: M38 (1944), M44 (1945), 91/59 (1943).

    All are Ishevsk made with matching numbers. The M44 is the only one that is counterbored. The M44 also has a laminated stock.

    I have a couple Mosins. 1946 Izzy M44. All matching. Mosinprofile.gif

    And I too like the long ones as well. My PU sniper. 1942 Izzy with a 1948 scope. Yea, its not all original, but its pretty darn accurate. More then i am...thats for sure. MosinSniper.gif

    Im working on getting a M38 and standard 91/30. Then ill have a well rounded collection of them.
    You may notice that the fence and gate behind my house takes quite a beating.:D

    I haven't heard about the blue slings being navy. Actually mine is more black than blue.

    My M38 didn't have a sling when I bought it, so I just ordered one from AIM and that's what they sent me.

    Texas Colt did you refinish your 91/59 stock with anything? It's a beauty.

    The stock on the 91/59 is original. I haven't done a thing to it.

    I did refinish the M38. The original varnish was peeling off, so it stripped it down to bare wood, stained it with red oak stain, and then applied 8 coats of tung oil.

    Most M91/59s are in great shape and are generally tack drivers. Nice carbines!

    I could be all full of BS,but I think it means in 1959,they cut down a
    few 91/30's to make them.

    I've got a couple of 1956 Chinese T-53's. These things were rough when I got them, but I wanted them more as project guns than anything else. I started off with three of them, own two now (gave the other one to my next door neighbor). Each one I've gotten a little better with cleaning and refinishing them. I'll probably strip one of them down again over the winter, and redo it.

    I don't really have any desire to shoot them, but I might get some ammo this fall and shoot a few rounds when the game dept range opens before hunting season.

    I can shoot and enjoy about anything. That said I prefer 91-30's more than their stubby cousins. It's a much more balanced weapon. Essex

    MRI, you are correct about the 91/59. In 1959, The Ishevsk and Tula arsenals took existing 91/30 rifles and cut them to carbine length (20" barrel). And IIRC, there are no known records as to how many were produced.

    I wouldn't/haven't shoot it without muffs/plugs! At the range shooters next to me have said they could feel it and hear it (with muffs) quite well!

    I made the mistake once with a carbine. I had a m91 for years, and would shoot it with earplugs, but it is not crazy loud. When I got my second mosin (M44) I only had one set of ear plugs, and I left my wife have them. When I pulled the trigger, I was deaf in my right ear for about 2 minutes. I actually felt my ear constrict. Man that is loud.

    Never again.

    Anyway, if you are standing on the right hand side of someone shooting a mosin carbine, you can feel the shockwave. Plays havoc with a spotting scope. (BOOM, rattle rattle rattle... I think you hit here...)
