    I'm bartering ammo for a nice Mosin Nagant M91/59.

    I have never owned a Mosin, but I really dig the looks of this and the price of ammo.

    Tell me about this beast!

    good rifle, bolt can be sticky but nothing a good cleaning can't fix, about $200 in today's market

    It's a 91/30 that was cut down after the war. They don't shoot any better than the 91/30 but command a higher price with collectors because there are fewer of them.

    Being cut down from a 91/30, the barrel is a little thicker than an M38 or M44.

    My first Mosin. The bolt action is smooth and I'm fairly quick with it.

    Got one this past weekend only because I saw the Archangel stock. LOL. Like I need a new project...

    Ammo already on backorder, too. I'm almost set. :)

    Thanks. I got 60 or so loose rounds in the deal. I'll look for some more to play with.

    I have never shot more than 40rds in a day. Whoo, they kick sharp with those metal butts. This will be the second time in one night I have said ammunition to go....but they have a good selection in stock and at good prices. Only thing is the shipping delays...but that bothers me none. Have fun...they are great rifles.
