I have a 1942 M91/30 Ishevsk that I have modified the crap out of. It has a Chinese military AK47 scope mount that I modified to fit. Monte Carlo stock, spring loaded bi pod, 3-9x40 Burris scope, modified short pull trigger, 4in sniper bolt handle. Barrel slugged out to .314in and is nice and shiny. All the modifications were done by me.
I also have a 1936 Finnish M28/30 that has a badly chopped stock from the previous owner. Very unfortunate as that rifle could have been worth around 1000$. Anyways, that has yet to be modified yet. Since it is already chopped, I might do the scope mount on that as well. That bore slugged out to .3088in - it was basically not used at all before I got it. The bore on those rifles usually measured at .3082-.3085.
I bought one of these. I havent shot it yet. It had the barrel and stock cut down, the rear sight is missing and has been painted green. It has a bent(?) bolt too. It came with over 400 rounds of ammo. Not sure what I am going to do with it.
Man, I bought a Bubba'ed 91/30 for $100 bucks Last week. I f it did not come with 200 rounds of ammo I probably would not have picked it up. It's Chrome (eek) I figured I use it for plinking , no trade value in it but the stock and chrome are in excellant condition . worse comes to worse, being an Electrician... I can always make a lamp out of it. it's a 39 Izzy.
you may think it has no value but i think shes beautiful! and a decent price for the rifle ammo was just a kicker
It is in great shape, but there's no way I would of gone out of my way to get a Chrome Mosin. the stock is in beautiful condition and with all the ammo , pouches and clips and other stuff..it was still a pretty good deal.
