HOLY ZOMBIE THREAD BATMAN!!!
as I tend to hate COO mausers I tend to hold them in pretty low reguard but in this case there is no comparison.
the 91/30 is a horribly designed rifle with a stiff action, rough tool marks, poor sights and a floor plate that allows the magazine to fill with dirt, snow, mud, soot and grime in a WWII type combat environment.
the Mauser also has horrible sights but the action is much smoother and the floorplate does a much better job of sealing the magazine from outside debris. the K98 is also a more compact design.
