    Guys,

    SAMCO has a bent bolt m91 which if I read it correctly I assume it is a sniper M91. It has the holes for the mount. They then make the comment that it has a "shortened barrel". Does anyone know abut these rifles that SAMCO has. They are a bit pricey at I think it was 300 and 350 depending on condition.

    if it has a shortened barrel its no longer a m91 and I would be very careful at that price I know seval people that have bought sniper rifles only to find out the dealers put them together out of junk

    They are M91/30 snipers from

    Yugosolvia. Barrels are correct length, they worded it wrong. They were trying to give history that the M91 became the M91/30. These snipers had the scope set ups removed. All you have to do is install a scope set up ( base,mount and scope)

    link is here Welcome to Samco Global Arms, Inc.


    Here was one I got from them and added an original WWII scope set up
    on. It is a 1943 Izhevsk.

    Thanks ET! I was wrong on the price. They are a bit cheaper. I think they were something like $279.

    I have been also looking for a PU scope but not finding much on the internet. Any suggestions were I should look would be appreciated.

    There were some original scopes on

    Ebay the past few weeks with post war mounts. Also there are tons of reproductions on Ebay. JUST make sure you get the steel mounts !
     
  10. amen to the steel mounts, the heat of your Mosin action WILL melt the aluminum ones..........cheap modern manufactured sh!t

    A lot of the ones you see on ebay are being auctioned by Accumounts. Someone else pointed that out to me.

    there was a few from the Ukrain

    that were on Ebay. I just bought two original bases , 1 Izhevsk and 1 Tula from over seas. I just bought two original mounts from a guy in Poland. Now have 2 extra original mounts and bases. Guess time to find a few more original scopes.
