Picked up 2 Mosins this week...
#1
Picked up 2 Mosins, thought I'd share. Traded a buddy of mine some non-firearms related gear for the all-original rifle. During our trade he asked what my intentions were. I told him I'd like to scope it, but upon seeing it, I didn't want to ruin it. So he offered me another that was already sporterized for the same trade price. I took him up on both trades (that cost me a total of 60 bucks Big Grin ). He's happy, and so am I. All in all a damn good week.

The top one is a 1939 Izhevsk 91/30, ATI stock, bent bolt kit, drilled-and-tapped scope mount, and Bushnell Stalker 3x9x40 scope.
Import marks appear to say: USSR 7.62x54R R GUNS C'VILLE IL 91/30

The bottom one is a 1942 Izhevsk 91/30, all-original, and in awesome shape.
There do not appear to be any import marks except a dot matrix engraving of the serial number.

Love Mosins! I'm up to two 91/30's and two M44 Carbines. The damn things just keep following me home for some reason!

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

You seem conflicted...
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

Mine's a hex chambered Tula. Discovered it looking for an M1 Garand. Cool owning them both!
