    1931 91/30
    1942 91/30 sniper
    1944 91/30 sniper
    1943 91/30

    Anyone else?

    I have a 1943 dated M91/30 Izhyevsk, with PU scope, year of manufacture 1944. Apparently a post-war refurbished rifle.
    Also a 1944 Finn M39, and a 1943 dated Tula SVT-40, Tula SKS 1954, Makarov pistol.

    Russian arms design excels in simplicity, effectiveness, robustness under adverse conditions, all virtues in military arms.

    Seal, I'd acquaint Santa Claus with this link:
    http://forums.gunboards.com/showthread.php?t=123787
    It tells how to inspect a rifle barrel, and show how to judge its condition. Are rifle owners judgemental? Absolutely! Make an assessment of the barrel condition of any rifle you buy so you have an idea of what level of accuracy is to be expected.
    It's no fun to have a rifle that is neglected, worn, and long shot out past its useful service life.
    The outer appearance of a rifle has NO bearing whatsoever on the health of the barrel. Nice looking rifle may have a poor barrel. Well-used looking rifle might have a very nice barrel.
    You never assume, and you always do a visual inspection prior to purchase.
    You should really accompany Santa Claus and co-inspect.
    You will need a cleaning rod, patches, solvent, and a bore light.
    Remember that you can remove a Moisin bolt by opening the bolt, pulling the trigger, and withrawing the bolt straight back out of the rifle. Not only should you inspect the rifle from the breech end, (and also inspect from the muzzle) but you should also clean it from the breech end to spare the crown from being damaged.

    Do not settle for an OK rifle. Do not buy the first one you look at.
    Bide your time, and buy a rifle with a very good quality barrel, with absolutely crisp rifling and no pitting whatsoever.
    You will know such a rifle when you see it. You will need to run two or three patches thru the rifle prior to visual inspection.
    Insist on taking these steps with teh seller to safeguard your purchase and assure quality.

    Now for some photos Smile
    1st up is a 1931 matching Izhevsk 91/30 - theres a refurb mark on it,i can only guess it was in the Winter war 1939/1940 and refurbed after and then used in ww2 missing the post war refurb because it looks like its been in a few battles


    Next up is my 91/30 1944 PU sniper - this one has no refurb marks and is matching Smile
