Mosin-Nagant M91/30

by A-Poc

This is the Mosin-Nagant M91/30.  It fires a 7.62x54mmR round.  These rifles have been used in many conflicts since 1891.  They are still used since they are very rugged and so many of them were produced during WWII.  A friend of mine picked one of these up recently and it came with a bayonet, sling, a double ammo pouch, and an oil can.  I haven’t had the chance to fire this one yet, but I hear it is a lot of fun and is comparable to firing a .308.

These can still be picked up pretty cheap (under $100 in some places).  If you are looking for a cheap, but good military surplus rifle, then this is it.  Just ask anybody who remembers when M1 Garands were a dime a dozen if they wish they had bought them when they were as cheap as this rifle and I bet you will get a resounding yes!

great weapon. .308 = 7.62×51. this shoots a 7.62×54. it goes thru trees. and the ammo is dirt cheap. around 5$ for 25rds. the most important thing is that they r cheap. i picked mine up for around 110$. the russians produced 30 million of them making them easy to come by. If you doubt this rifle than you havent seen “Enemy at the Gates”
