    Well, the mystery of the 1891 Mosin has been solved! I took a another look at what I thought was an Izzy 1891 and found that it is a Tikka 91 1940 hex receiver. Mosin Rarity of 6! :09:

    It is a mess and needs to be cleaned up before I can really tell what I have. But for 95 bucks I thought it be a good deal.

    I also brought home an m38 laminated in a m38 stock. No pits and a great bore. Will post pics when I get a camera or find one.

    Great huntin!!!

    I, on the other hand, found the 3 boxes of 7mm Mag and 1 box of .300 Win Mag ammo I bought 3 weeks ago..

    I need to get my stuff in order.. $100 worth of ammo and I couldn't find it in my own house, while you're wandering around, finding cool guns!!!

    Grumble...

    Poor little paper. I will help you get your stuff in order for a couple beers and the use of your cleaning stuff. I got a couple Mosins to clean!!!

    BTW, somewhere in my storage I have 100 rounds of 300 savage that I can't find either. :09:

    Yep, this is the one I remembered as a 1944 Izzy 1891. Second look found it to be much more! It is pretty grungy and bolt needs to be polished. Looks like it has sat in someone's dusty basement for a long time. But little significant rust. The bore looked OK but dirty. Won't know what I really have until I get it cleaned up. I can't wait! AND a rarity of 6 for less than 100 bucks! :09:

    Oh My! I have one Moose doesn't have?! Just pure bone luck on my part! I would also have a nice Enfield if the guy would take credit. Had limited cash on me.

    You got THAT right Mr. Marion! I was just waiting until I got paid to order some ammo. I have over 400 rounds that I can't get to so I have to buy more. I have an M38 and that new M91 to shoot!
