Just after I made a stupid comment in another post below about being more of an older military gun type collector than mostly of Moisin Nagants I finally have hit rock bottom and gotta admit I'm addicted. I walked into a gun shop today (one I had never been in before) for the expressed purpose of just getting some ammo (yeah, right). As I looked around I noticed a large floor mounted rack of older guns. Off I go. What did I find.....? A Russian 91/30 in exceptional......(repeat and emphasize exceptional) condition! All numbers matched......bore bright and clean. The stock had it's usual cold war era appearance but no dings, digs, major scratches or cracks. The barrel, receiver and triger group bluing was dark blue and spotless. The bolt was as shiny as an uncirculated coin and the bolt slide and internals showed very little wear. The price was ever so slightly higher than what I was used to but I figured, hey, in that condition it might be worth it. Needless to say, I took it to the counter and filled out the adoption paperwork. I also got the original and serial numbered bayonet, oil can and double (ugly dark and light brown leather) ammo pouch. God, she's a beaut hanging in there. I was gonna to bore y'all with a few photos but I keep getting a forum error message when I try to attach one. Perhaps later. So, now, all you guys quit talking about Moisins and maybe I can forget about them......fer a while.
