bought the mosin over the weekend, cleaned it up. ordered a field gauge, rubber pad and ten stripper clips for it. I broke the bolt down a few times, learned how to set the firing pin depth etc. Very busy with non shooting things
. hope to shoot it next week.
It is a 91/30 with a 28 inch barrel. matching bolt, receiver and butt plate numbers. The LGS had a sniper, bolt numbers were etched not stamped, this made me save $30 and buy the matching numbers gun. Also got some Brown Bear steel case ammo, just to try it out. May go with much cheaper spam can brass washed ammo. Price is right, but wanted to first try some non corrosive ammo first.
