View Full Version : Getting ready for the range
I got them all cleaned and oiled. Looking for a great day tomorrow. Wish me luck. The M 1 Garand hasnt been sighted since I got it 3 yrs so goes with the M91/30.
Ooh you got two battle rifles, both WW2 vets! Let us know how it goes!
My first exposure to the Garand was in CVPC high school in the early 80s. I got adept at it without getting M-1 thumb. Of course what I got later was M14 thumb.:supergrin:
Oh really I think theirs is connected with the Phil MArines ROTC or Navy? I remember they performed military drills almost par with PMA :thumbsup:
It was Philippine Navy I think, as their Tac-Os were Navy petty officers. The Marines is part of PN so they also had their own Marine company. They were indeed as snappy as the PMA.
However, with it now being called NORSU (Negros Oriental State University), it has the distinction of having two ROTC units, one Air Force and the other Army.:thumbsup: Don't know why they ditched Navy.
It was already dead on . No sweat . Nothing beats the garands sighting system. As for the M 91/30, I adjusted the front sight a little towards the right. Its dead on POA now. I love its rugged simplicity. The reason the Russians stick with it , made improvements in 1930 from M 91 to M 91/30. The last pic is the M 91/30 group shot also at 20 yds.
Nice groups! BTW is your M91/30 made in a Russian arsenal? I read some were actually made in the US by Remington on contract from the Russian government, like some British .303 Enfields.
This particular M 91/30 has the hex-type receiver, made by Tula (Russia) in 1933. Its a better made preWW2 piece the very reason I chose to keep this. I had one that I sold which was a WW2 production dated 1943, rounded receiver, that had rough outside machining. The bore had seen pretty good use but when fired , it is as tight. On sandbag at 100 yds, it can grouped 3 inches typical of these rifles if you do your part.
That's great. How much did you get it for? You have a Curio & Relic license?
I got this 4 yrs ago for $115 . I paid a little more bec of prewar condition and year made. From what i gathered these M 91/30 were specifically imported from Ukraine. They were big in former USSR frotnline defense (Cold War years). The Russians stock tons of these in salt mines getting ready for the inevitable western attack .
Once the breakup the Ukrainians exported these to the highest bidder.
The C R license is a nice one to have but i never bothered to get one. BATF agents will randomly check your inventory and Im not ready for that.
The charge with only 5 bullet , follow the man in front of you, pick the first gun you can get, and kill 5 Germans. (Russian counterattack across the river in Stalingrad 1942-1943).
