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!

I have an M91/30. Great pieces of history, and lots of fun. ammo is still pretty inexpensive and available.

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.
