    Just before I left to link up with Moosemus Stinkamus, the Mail Man delivered me one prime M91/59! She got all matching, sweet barrel, but counterbored, and a real pretty stock with 7-8 cartouches showing! I haven't even held her much yet! Too many irons in the fire, and the Chief of Smoke is home until 2000hrs! I told Moose, I giggled. I had to make another stop after we met so didn't bring it to show. Besides, he had a nice buy x2 to show. Will post pics tomorrow! Oh, and for those of you that are all set to blast me on the "I'm done with Mosins except a M28", I ordered this BEFORE I said that! Kiss my grits!

    Thanks all! Finally got to sit down and really go over this rifle. It is one cool girl. I had just gotten over playing with my M38. Now I have a new one to start all over again. Will post pics when I get some daylight.

    Glad you finally got one SS!

    I love "Svetlana" and "Ivanova", they're both numbers-matching, non-counterbored. Ivanova has the heaviest trigger I've felt on a mosin, but Svetlana's trigger pull is the lightest and crispest; sooo smooth.

    What I love about these mosins is it's like having a bull-barreled m38!

    NRAJOE YOU TALKIN' TO ME!? Forum Contributor

    Never should of sold mine...it was very cool...oh well...got enough Mosins as is....
     
  9. NO NO NO!!!! Not true! You can never have too man Mosins!
    Wifes/girlfriends may disagree though.
    My wife told me 2 was enough. I didn't argue for obvious reasons - I didn't want to lose.

  20. Them's fightin' words, mister. Now I got to go take mine out of the safe and calm her down, and explain to her that no one really thinks she's a German just because she's blonde...shame on you.:hitwithrock:
