Charles Wooters: Wow, looks to be in great condition!
kevinsmusic: @JOHNFMKN I hate you right now for getting such an amazing gun. I just now
started to get into guns.
Zach Thamel: where did you buy it from?
snoozlefroose: awesome..i gotta look into that,thanks.
Tonyiz: using an 01 FFL to build up a personal collection.
LupisLupine: Very nice. I've got a Izhevsk round reciever made in 1940. Matching numbers
as well but the stock has been beat to hell. Obviously seen heavy usage but
it's still a very shootable firearm. Recently purchased an M1891/10 and I'm
just waiting for my 2 week wait. Hope you have fun with your new rifle!
JOHNFMKN: I have a 03 Federal Firearms License which is for Collectors of Curios &
Relics. Yes, you can order firearms online if you have one. The 01 FFL is
for Dealers/Gun stores. The 03 FFL is for Collectors of Firearms over 50
years old that are on the C&R list.
snoozlefroose: doing what?
LamboK28992: no rabbid...the 30 in 91/30 is the updated model of the 1891, the model
Otacon237: Great rifle, will definitely get one of these someday. I saw a couple of
guys shooting one at the range the other day, they are LOUD! Much louder
than my FAL lol.
Captain Whisky: Nice! I just picked up my '32 Tula today, hex reciever, all matching except
the floorplate, which is lined out and restamped. It's in good shape, but
not as good as my '36 Izzy which also has the hex reciever and is
completely matching. Still, worth every penny. Mosins rock!
Michael Myers: whats the difference between the rifle with the hex receiver and the rifle
without the hex receiver? i have the option of buying either one and want
to know what the difference is.
JOHNFMKN: Sounds like a good deal.
snoozlefroose: oh i replied the wrong one haha...well thanks,i gotta look into that.
snoozlefroose: is FFL a Federal Firearms Liscence?...do you have to be a dealer to get
one? and you can just order guns online if you have one??
Targetpopper: The Russians didnt use the decimal system to measure they first used the
arshini then the metric system. When they changed to metric they had to
update their rifles... which they did in 1930. Hence the model 91/30 was
born. went from the 1891 model to the updated 1891/1930 model. It fired the
7.62x54Rmm which is around .310 - .312
Tom Dixon: You got lucky to get a hex receiver on a 1936 Tula, damn that was a great
score for sure bro
StereoSoundAgent1: @gruelin1 i mean no offense, but that isnt true...most Mosin crowns are in
anthony ruscitto: @rabbidryan actually you couldnt be any more wrong if you wanted to be....
there were designed in 1891 or the "dragoon" rifle and they were
referbished by the soviet union in 1930 and re-enginerreed slightly. and
the cailber has nothing to do with the name.
twombonu: I have been shooting and collecting for 40 years! The Mosin Nagant is
definitely an outstanding weapon. I recommend though, switching the bolt
from a standard bolt to a sniper bolt (there is a video for that on
youtube). The standard bolt handle is a little short, so you always need
more torque. Shooting with the longer sniper bolt handle eliminates that
problem. Good shooting!
Yoyosten99: I'm about to buy a buddies hex receiver Tula along with a box of 440 rounds
for $200. That's great condition price. Once i look it over i might deduct
some from what i pay depending on rust, cracks, and the sharpness of the
JOHNFMKN: Mosin is pronounced mo-SEEN Nagant is pronounced na-GOHN the "T" is silent.
When I said 1931 I was talking about the production date stamped on the
receiver which was wrong it is a 1936. It shoots 7.62x54r which does fall
into the .30 caliber, the actual bullet diameter is .311 to be exact.
Alexn1067: mosins are a great buy, the best value when it comes to rifles whether you
pay 80 bucks or 150, you get every cent of what you paid for. I own a 1943
war production 91/30 that has never been refurbished, its in fair condition
with honest wear to the stock. Once I discovered that it was in its
original condition I went ahead and ordered a 2nd 91/30. This time a 1934
Tula Hex, refurbished to almost new condition. paid 100 for the ww2
production mosin and 160 for the pre war hex.
gruelin1: Your crown is in good shape because it was counter bored. You can tell
because it is missing the bluing on the muzzle. I wish I had a Tula, all my
Mosins are Izzies.
RJ Hayes: where did u get it?
mosin1111: looks like you got a good rifle for a great price. Note that these rifles
can outshoot any $500 rifle
snoozlefroose: i know 01's are only for gun stores and people who sell i wouldnt do that
Michael Myers: @Bloodklot ya i looked into it a little more and i'm thinking of getting
the hex one. i feel that when a manufacturer isn't rushed to deliver a
product quality in the materials isnt overlooked. thanks
Bloodklot: @envisionstar from what I understand, they started with hex receivers and
then switched to round receivers later because they were easier to
manufacture. I got my mosin the beginning of this year. It's a hex receiver
Izhevsk with matching serials. Love it.
rabbidryan: Mosin nagan 1931? Its called a Mosin Nagant 1891 and it shot a .30 caliber
bullet, hense the name 91'/30
JOHNFMKN: Not much of a differnce, but the Hex are older and a little more
collectable. They also have a little bit better machining. I would pick the
rifle that looks to be in the best condition over all, if you are looking
for a good shooter.
