Brutus' Description

We currently have in stock a very special select batch of Russian Mosin Nagant rifles with Laminated Stocks and  Hex Receivers.  These are WWII era rifles that have been arsenal refinished.  All of these are considered Very Good to Excellent condition. These rifles all come individually boxed from the importer and ship complete with a Sling. Bayonet, Mag Pouch and Tool Kit.  These are all in very nice condition and as such we are not doing a hand select for condition. From what we have seen these could all pretty much qualify as hand select. Also there will be a mix of Tula and Ishevsk rifles and even some Dragoon era rifles mixed in. We are not selecting for those either or sorting them out. In this environment we are simply too busy to devote the space or manpower toward sorting these rifles and what you get will be luck of the draw.

Who knows, best case scenario you may end up with something very rare and collectible - Worst case, you will have a really nice Laminated Hex receiver M91/30 with all accessories at a great price. Current Price Limited to Stock On Hand. 

C & R Eligible 

Note:  As you may have noticed, the price on these has been slowly creeping up lately and we do not expect that to change for a while. 
Buy one before the next price increase.

Stocking Dealer / Collectors Special - Buy a Master Pack of 5 of these fine rifles and save $10.00 Each.....

Note Part Deux: Some will ask why these boxed rifles have all of their accessories and our crated rifles only have the bayonets. Well here is what I was told.
These hex receiver rifles have actually been in the country longer than our crated rifles and have been sitting in a bonded warehouse up north without being released for sale by the importer. The importer on these ( Century Arms ) discontinued Nagant sales for a while in order to concentrate on semi-auto rifle production and sales.
I am told that future shipments may or may not have slings, etc, because they are drying up in the Ukraine, but these rifles, being from an earlier shipment still have them. My advice is to get what you can while the getting is good.  
Bon Apitite.....

Absolutely great purchase. Received a Tula Hex that was in great condition. It was not counterbored and since like all laminated stock rifles have been rearsenaled I received one with force-matched numbers. Overall a great buy and definitely shoots up in my collection as one of my favorites.

Mixed bag…
Review by David on 8/7/14

I received a 1935 Tula hex receiver rifle that is an interesting mix of pros and cons.

Pros: The rifle came with a wonderful laminate stock that clean-up beautifully. Additionally, it has crisp Tula markings on a clean hex receiver. Lastly, the barrel is not counter-bored and cleaned up very nicely. It has strong rifling with light frosting so I think it will be a very strong shooter. I look forward to taking it to the range.

Cons: Forced matching of numbers except for the bolt. No numbering on the bolt at all! The reason I only gave four stars is because of some unusual pitting and missing finish on the barrel around the front sight. This missing finish even happens on the end of the cleaning rod… Very strange.

But I am happy with my purchase and will continue to buy more C&R guns from Classic Firearms. It is always fun to open the box, wipe way the cosmoline, and see what you got!
LOVE THIS COMPANY!!!

So i bought a grade "B" mosin when it was on sale for mothers day for $99...... i think they must have run out because they sent me a 1923 DDR HEX Laminated that is in near mint condition. I had bought two other grade B's, also came as hex's, and were boht in great shape except for minor dings and finish problems.

As far as the guns go, they are awesome, great rifles that will withstand the test of time and are still relatively inexpensive to shoot. Everybody should own at least 2 of these guns.
Beautiful!

Received a 1934 Tula from Classic yesterday. Gun came well packaged with bayonet, manual, oil can, tool kit, and 2 ammo pouches. The rifle was coated with cosmoline. I am very happy with my purchase the gun had a very beautiful laminate stock and was in overall great shape. Thanks Classic.
A very nice piece of history !
Review by ReconDad on 7/20/14

What better way to celebrate the 4th. of July than picking up my very nice 1931 Tula from my local dealer (yes he actually was open for business on July 4. ) ? Finish was quite nice with only a little etching - not what I would call pitting - on the top of the receiver , The only problem is the fact that the bolt was very sloppy, it would come open all by itself if you simply inverted the rifle . My first inclination was to return the rifle for another but being sort of an amateur gunsmith I said to myself " I can fix this " . A bolt connector and guide bar from Sarco and a new firing pin spring from Wolff and it was as good as new . I checked the headspace with gauges by Okie Gauges and headspace was spot on . I advise anyone who shoots or collects Mosins to invest in some headspace gauges. I payed 50.00 for a set of three but all you really need is a no-go gauge . Barrel was pristine with sharp lands and no hint of rust or pitting . I have not shot it yet but I believe this one is going to be a great shooter .
Very Nice
Review by Yuri Jagov on 7/4/14

I received a very nice hex receiver, Tula-made, Mosin Nagant, dated 1926. The only down-side was that it was slathered in cosmoline - otherwise, I am very satisfied.
MO' marked, Hex, Laminate stock Mosins = Nice!
Review by Moses on 6/11/14

Awesome job once again Classic. This is a great find with all the options I love on my Mosins. I ordered 10 of the laminated hex Mosin Nagants to get the special pricing and they are all absolutely beautiful - especially the numbers matching 1928 Tula ex dragoon! The others were mostly equally impressive with several double and triple stamped MOs! Half have been re-crowned but no worries as they normally shoot better anyhow. Love them all. Can't go wrong on this investment. I ordered another 10!

A most excellent rifle
Review by FireMedicRetired on 5/23/14
Quality
First, the importer, Century Arms, put the import marking and serial number on the receiver, in very plain view: thus the four stars. Had Century pot the import mark on the underside of the barrel, I would have given it five stars. This is the ONLY detrimental thing. My rifle is a 1936 Tula with a four digit serial number. The barrel is marked "MO" and "1936/53". From what I understand, this rifle was made by Tula in 1936, and reworked (put through arsenal) in 1953, and then placed with the Defense Ministry ("MO"). Removing the cosmoline/grease was easy. I used many old socks to wipe off the grease. I did not need to use chemicals or detergent to remove it. I did use carb cleaner to remove grease from the bore. The metal finish is very nice, and a very shiny and bright dark blue. The laminated stock is the standard Russian varnish, and is in exceptional condition. The stock is in as-new condition: NO wear indicated! I paid hand pick for the bore and appearance; and this is WELL worth the money for the rifle I got. The bore is not as-new, nor did I expect it to be...the rifle is pre-WWII, 78 years old, and all it has seen is corrosive ammo. The bore has very good rifling, with very slight hint of frost. Overall, the condition of this rifle is outstanding. I am pleased, very pleased. If money allows next month, I just may buy another Mosin. By the way, I do NOT shoot surplus ammo, unless it is brass cased and non-corrosive. With my loaded ammo, I hold 2 minutes out to 600 yards, with the old iron sights. It is not the easiest to do with the Mosin trigger, and the barrel needed to be fouled 30-40 rounds before groups started to tighten. This is a great rifle, with great history. Classic did a fine job representing this rifle and a fine job shipping, with email notifications.

Got my Mosin yesterday, and boy, was I glad to find a beautiful laminated, hex receiver in great condition in the box. This is the first time I had ordered a firearm sight unseen and I was a bit nervous that I might get stuck with a weapon I did'nt like. I really took the chance because of all the positive reviews I read about Classic Arms. Now I won't hesitate to deal with Classic again. Thank you guys.
1935 Tula
Review by Deadly in OKC on 5/9/14
Quality
This 1935 Tula had all numbers matching - - no force matches and no stencils. The barrel has excellent rifling - - not counter-bored. All bluing is excellent, also. The laminated stock really shows-off all the parts of this Mosin-Nagant. The bands are from an Izzy, but if I get industrious, I can switch some of my Tula bands from my Izzy rifles onto this great specimen; another great shooter!. Thanks again, Classic!!
Fantastic!
Review by Tim on 5/5/14
Quality
I couldn't be more pleased with the rifle I received. A 1928 matching, ex Dragoon Tula with a most beautiful stock! This is a perfect example and more than one could expect from a "surplus" rifle.

Classic called me for some clarification on the order and once that was worked out, the rifle was in my hands in two days after traveling halfway across the country. Outstanding job by a quality company!

Thank you!

I ended up with a 1932 Tula double date.. Love it! The stock is in excellent condition. The rifle finish and bore are the best out of my 4 Mosin's. This thing came LOADED with cosmoline, which is probably why it looks so good. Granted, I think that actually made the Cosmoline come off easier as funny as it sounds.

Beautiful Mosin Received
Review by Gary B on 4/16/14
Quality
I recently ordered my first Mosin because everyone should have one, right? I did not want to take my chances on a generic $89 version in who knows what condition. So I purchased the $199 hex receiver with laminated stock version. After the usual "cosmo cleanup" and reassembly, I was truly amazed to find a beautiful 1933 Tula in like new condition. The stock was in excellent condition. The barrel and receiver were rust free and bluing was very, very good. The bore and rifling were in great condition and the barrel was not counterbored. No way this rifle was 81 years old! But there it was. Just waiting for a Russian soldier to pick it up and run through the streets of Stalingrad in 1942. Who knows... maybe they did.
1928 dragoon. Very satisfied
Review by Chris on 4/16/14
Quality
Posted a vid and image, receivers an excellent quality 1928, researched the stampings on the receiver and it is an updated dragoon with modern 91/30 sight leaf. Now I'll keep my eye out for a dragoon sight leaf with tartar increments. Receiver was 100% excellent shape, loaded in cosmoline (which is a good thing!) stock is a gorgeous laminate stock which at different angles turns every other grain lighter and darker than the surrounding grain, bore is mirror shiny, not counterbored, and the crown is immaculate. It honestly looks like it hasn't been fired (except it had, found a bit of gunpowder residue in the chamber upon cleaning, no biggie, still looks brand new). I have already referred a few others to this site because they were very impressed. Shipping wise, it was delivered to my ffl the day ups said it would. Thanks classicfirearms!!!

I ordered for the first time from classic and can only say that I could not be happier with service and with the rifle I received. The rifle is a 1925 and it is in wonderful shape. the bore after a really good cleaning, miked out at .313 which isn't bad for this type rifle. The Head space was great. The wood was in pretty good shape. So all I can say is thank you for a great deal on a great old rifle that I am proud to own.You can deal with no worries with classic Firearms. well done and thanks to all at classic.

Hex Laminated 91/30
Review by Jim L. on 3/26/14
Quality
I've never written a review for anything before, however, this rifle has inspired me to lend some insight into this purchase: I'm currently removing the cosmoline after disassembling the rifle. Everytime something is removed, and wiped down, another portion of a beautiful rifle is revealed. It's a 1928 Izzy complete with the bow and arrow proof mark, cyrillic rollmarking across the receiver, a wreathed hammer and sickle, and it is gorgeous. The blueing looks brand new. Minus a couple of scratches on the stock, it is mint. All stamped serial numbers match (buttplate, bolt, receiver, and trigger guard). I am still soaking the parts, including the bayonet, so I don't know if it also has matching numbers or not. It also is not back bored. Only a couple of spots look like it's been touched up with some black paint, but it's been nicely done and looks good. I noticed a couple of other posts that mentioned stuff getting scratched during shipment, but everything was carefully and tightly bubble wrapped, and packaged. I have a half dozen other mosins, but this is my first laminated stock model. IT IS AWESOME. I haven't scrubbed the barrel out yet, so I can't comment on the condition of the bore, but will update this post later if I can. At this point, I am ECSTATIC about this purchase. This rifle is fantastic, and it is litterally dripping with history!
Exceeded Expectations - Fine 91-year-old Tula!
Review by Seattle Dave on 3/19/14
Quality
Unboxed my (very first) Mosin-Nagant today, and was crossing my fingers a bit, given that I didn't order a handful of them like some do, from which to pick and choose my favorite from the lot.
Luck was on my side! It's a beautiful 1925 Tula with Hex receiver, all numbers match (except the bayonet, no biggie), stamped numbers, not engraved. I feel that I certainly got my money's worth, and that the extra premium I paid was rewarded. The laminate stock is in remarkably good shape, and even though it's not original-1925 furniture, it looks *really* great.
First layer of cosmoline is off, and I spent a lot of time cleaning out the bore. It hasn't been counter-bored, which either way would have been fine with me. The original rifling is showing some wear, probably down to about half of what was there 91 years ago. Plenty enough to spin the bullet. Getting a close-up view of the bore under bright lighting shows it looking very good, pretty smooth, minimal scratching. A few places on the metal has been touch-up painted, but done well.
You know, the last WAC gun show I went to two weeks ago had many Mosin Nagants, none nearly this nice, and all asking prices were north of $300. Thank you so very much, Classic Firearms. I suspect I'll be back for more (probably a Grade B, to turn into a project).

Received my Tula 1935 with the hex receiver and laminated. Nice piece of history in these rifles and the workmanship is incredible for something almost 80 years old.

Review by Kevin on 3/13/14

This is my first laminate hex receiver but 4th 91/30 rifle from Classic. This rifle is in excellent condition with an original date from Tula 1932. There are an additional two dates stamped on receiver as well. I stripped the stock off to evaluate any hidden corrosion. I was very pleased to see no corrosion or rust at all. This rifle came with a little cosmoline but nothing like two rifles I received last year. I will do a thorough cleaning and be shooting this very soon. Thanks Classic, I'll be ordering from you again!

Review by SSRet on 3/12/14

Purchased two 91/30's (this one and one of the "B" Grade Molot rifles). First Mosin Nagants for me. I thought this one would be a gem, but as it turns out, not so much. I received a 1934 Ishevsk, with forced match, electro-engraved numbers on the bolt, floor plate and butt plate. The laminate stock is very nice, but does have a toe splice. Service was great. I will purchase from Classic again.

I would buy another weapon from Classic in a heart beat! My mosin came and was covered in cosmoline as expected. The laminate stock was worth the extra money!! I had already gotten troil and sandpaper to rifinish it ,but when the rifle arrived without a scratch I decided to leave it as is.

I was lucky I guess I received a 1925 hex Tula 91/30 Mosin Nagant! This is the best gun that I have ever bought from classicfirearms. I have bought 5 guns from this web site, and this gun is the best. It shoots and hits the target dead on and being a Tula that is almost 90 years old with all matching numbers... yeah it's worth more than $200! What a great buy! Thanks classicfirearms!

My first Mosin Nagant. The wood on the gun is very nice. The tag says excellent on the trigger, all numbers match. It is a 1928 Izhevsk.The metal is smooth and there are no dings or gouges on the wood. I have no idea on the bore, with no light just looking down the barrel I see light gray with darker gray rifling.

Review by Mike on 1/29/14

After looking the gun over, I'm pleased. I received a 1930 Tula with matching numbers except for the bayo. The stock is nice except for the scratches that were most likely caused by the loose ammo pouch. The sling has a bunch of cosmoline on it from the oil bottle that was shipped in the same bag. This one is counter bored as well. I can't wait to clean this thing up!
Awesome! Great Deal!

As always a great purchase. I received a 1925 Hex Tula with MO stamp. Full of cosmoline but knew it would be. Thinking of refinishing the stock but may just clean it up and wipe with Tru Oil. Another great Mosin for the collection. Can't go wrong with Classic Firearms!

Great Deal
Review by Thomas on 1/17/14
Quality
it is a beautiful piece of history at an incredible price. Just finished cleaning the cosmoline off and putting it back together. The only down side to the order was that it came with two sets of ammo pouches. One wrapped and one was not. The one that was not wrapped was free floating in the box and and etched a jagged 1 inch line in the laminated wood of the buttstock during shipping. Those clasps on the ammo pouches are pointy. It's kind of shame paying for the nicer stock and having this happen.

My first time buying from Classic Firearms. I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive about buying over the internet. But.....I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Bought a M91/30 Mosin Nagant Rifle Laminate W / Hex Receiver. I received a 1929 Tula and it looks better than I expected. Serial numbers all match, with the exception of the bayonet, but I can live with that. Hope to get some pictures posted after I clean off the cosmoline. Highly recommend doing business with Classic Firearms.

The short of it is I am very impressed with the service, and with the gun (1 of 2 I bought). My other purchase had a "hand selection" option and the stock on that gun was exquisite. The grain on the stock of this gun was only exceptional. Don't get me wrong, it is a used gun, but the reconditioning was very nicely done, and the dark wood stock with deep darker grain lines in it had my FFL impressed to the point that they stopped complaining about the cosmoline smell and mess. The guns spent 10 days in Comu-fornia prison and then were sent off to the gunsmith for cleaning and overall check, now I am in the process of moving and so I have not had time to play with them, but I will update probably in a month once the dust settles around the new house. Thanks guys, I am very happy.
GOOD SHOOTER

Good shooter, nice tight group at 50yds. Totally sanded stock and touched up bluing. I Went to adjust front sight and found that it had been glued on... Lost a star for that. Good thing I planed on putting a scope on it so no biggie. I do love this rifle but did put a butt pad on it so maybe next time I go shooting I wont come home with such a large bruise on my shoulder, WOW, what a kick.
Russian M91/30 Mosin Nagant Rifle Laminate W / Hex Receiver

I received this Russian M91/30 Mosin Nagant Rifle Laminate W / Hex Receiver on 11/6/13 with 3 other guns I purchased, This one me and wife were looking at it for over a hour, Because there were no hand select I was leary!. This is what leary gave me. A 80 yr old hex "MO" in a condition I think it was never used, It had all matching serials and no counter bore. Before i EVEN received the shipment of guns I was thinking that it would be a lemon. This gun is another just clean and use no need to refinish, Thats 3 for 3 on the rifes!, Thank you Classic Firearms!.
Very disappointed!!!

I picked up my rifle this evening. I got it home and unboxed it. The good news: The stock was nice and it had not been counterbored. The bad news: It had all forced matching numbers. The rifling in the bore was almost worn out. It is a 1932 Izhevsk.

Hi LSWJR - Glad to hear the stock was nice on your rifle. Also glad to hear not counter bored if that matters to you - however, counter bore has no negative impact on accuracy and if anything will improve the gun as a shooter. Force matched #s are very common on laminate rifles and is noted in the ad. Regarding the rifling, it would be quite a rarity for the rifling to be worn out on one of these rifles. May I suggest.....if you haven't already done so, please give the bore a good cleaning and then run a few rounds through it. I think you will find the rifling to be much better after doing so :) Let us know and give us call if any concerns or if you are still unhappy with your purchase. We certainly want you to be satisfied with your purchase from us and will make it right if you are not. Thanks and God bless.

received my purchase in 4 business days, 1933 M91/30...no matching numbers but with that said I Love this weapon. After an extensive cleanup I discovered a beautiful old rifle. Looks like a new bayonet. Woodwork looks like a small repair but done expertly. Small dings and scratches under a sloppy lamination job but since I'm prepared to refinish stock I expected this. The only reason I deducted a star was because non matching numbers and about used up barrel rifling, not too bad though I plan to shoot it next month and will see if I can get a decent group. I will get another one later on this rear but might try an earlier year model since I like to shoot them.
1935 Tula Laminated Hex
Review by Russ on 10/11/13

Ordered on a Thursday afternoon, arrived following Monday morning. I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the laminated stock. Cleaned it up and shot it 2 days later, deadly accurate. Not bad for an almost 80 year rifle. This was my 2nd purchase from Classic, soon to be followed by my 3rd. I've recommended to my friends and brag about Classic on the Mosin FB pages. Y'all better get one soon and get it from Classic Firearms-a great bunch of good Christian people.
Wow, just wow.

So I bought a box of five round receiver guns last month and was so pleased that I thought I'd take a chance on the hexes. I expected mis-matched serial numbers (or forced numbers). This was going to be my permission to play with these things since they weren't 100%. Well, five of five have all matching serial numbers. All have apparently new stocks. And most importantly, every bore is pristine. I have these cleaned up and plan to just put them away and do my playing with the round receivers I recently got.

Service was outstanding. I can't recommend this purchase enough. You often hear people low ball Mosin prices. Well, I think you get what you pay for. In this case, I think I got way more than I paid for.
Great Shooter but Needed Work and Still Not A Collectors Choice
Review by Ole Folky on 9/22/13
Quality
First of all, this is not critical of Classic Firearms-they have been great in all areas. This is more of providing some reality to the quality of seemingly diminishing supplies of Mosin Nagants. I have four of these great rifles and this last one was a little bit of a disappointment and here's why: I picked it up at my FFL dealer and excitedly spirited it home to clean it up and check function to get it ready for the range. The main disappointment I found is that it is a "forced match numbers" offering. It is a 1934 Izzy Hex and has a very nice laminated stock but has the "matching" numbers on the bolt, mag plate, & butt plate scribed in with an electric engraver. Real matching numbers would give it some collector value to justify the price-such was not the case. The good is that it was very well set up and is a great shooter: the head space is perfect, the bolt is a great fit, the rifling is excellent and it is very accurate- probably the most accurate of the four I have. There was a little rust here and there-nothing serious- and the bluing leaves a little to be desired. I touched up the bluing in several places to refine the appearance a bit. The refinished stock looked pretty darned good but I steel wool buffed it and added a thin coat of Tru-Oil and rubbed that out with rottenstone-great improvement. I also had to get the brown stained varnish overspray off the steel escutcheons in the stock for the strap slots and I also stripped the overspray off the butt plate to reveal the nice bluing beneath it. After all that, the appearance is greatly improved but it still has less collector value than I anticipated with the price I paid. Still, it is a great shooter in the proud tradition of 91/30 Mosins. I have gotten some nice comments on the appearance but they didn't notice the numbers thing. So, bottom line is that the supplies of Mosins may be beginning to run out or at least low of the really nice ones. We should not expect perfection on 70 to 90 year old rifles and getting a really nice one is a crap shoot at best. But it sure is a great shooter!! I'm enjoying it for what it is.

I have bought several items from classic firearms and their service has always been an A+. This was my second laminate hex from classic firearms and I could not have been more pleased with this rifle. All matching numbers and a triple date ex-dragoon (1929,46,53) to boot. As with every rifle I have bought from them the bore is bright and there is 0 pitting. Being from NY it is so hard to find anything like this worth buying especially with the high prices. Classic firearms makes it possible for anyone on any budget to get the best item possible. Thanks again Classic for all that you do and for all that you stand for!

The laminated stock really stands out at the range. A 1934 Izzy cleaned up nicely. Barrel was counter-bored; however, a CNC Warrior, 15 mm RH, AK-74 type muzzle brake was easily threaded with a cleaning patch used to stabilize the die starter. Again, sounds like a cannon, but kicks like an AK-47! My 6th Mosin-Nagant from Classic - - do I have enough, yet? Thanks again, Classic Firearms!

This was my first C&R purchase and Im pretty happy with what I received. I got a matching numbers 1936 Tula.,which I think was the last year for the Hex receiver. The stock is beautiful, no pits or rust, and the gun is in good working order. Shoots straight with no problems.

My only disappointment with the gun is that the entire barrel from the rear sight forward was painted, which promptly came off while I was removing the cosmoline. Fortunately the metal underneath was rust free. I dont blame Classic as the painting had to be done when they were re arsenal-ed, All in all a good purchase and a great gun.
Great service and great gun!!!

Quality Rifle/Quality Transaction
Review by MTUAlumTX on 7/4/13

A coworker suggested that I pick up a Mosin while they were still relatively abundant. I looked around for quite a while, and this deal seemed about as good as I could find for features/price.

I picked up the rifle from my FFL this morning.I immediately checked the year, armory marks and rear sight to determine what I had. Much to my delight, I received a 1934 Tula w/ matching serial numbers all around except for the bayonet (not worries there!). I haven't inspected much more closely than that, but the rifle seems to be in excellent condition.

All of the other accessories described online were present.

The cosmoline is as expected - hey, it's your friend with these rifles. I'll spend the 4th (and probably the 5th too) cleaning it up, take a trip to the gunsmith for a headspace check, then maybe get to the range this weekend for a first shoot.

All in all, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and Classic's service. I will definitely consider Classic for another purchase in the future...I think the 91/30 might just need an AK to keep it company next to the AR15 and 1911 in the gun safe...

Happy with what I got
Review by Aaron on 7/1/13

Due to not having an FFL03, I had to go through my deal, however, shipping to my dealer was as fast as expected

I ended up with a 1936 Tula. Any receiver markings are discreet (it's not all stamped up)

Stock is very nice with a toe splice that is not a repair, but prob due to not having enough wood for a full stock. This is fairly common

Muzzle does have some painting on the end, some of which came off during cleaning. There was also some very minor rust pitting in two spots no bigger than 1/2 inch long. Butt plate was also painted

Overall, floorplate was struck and restamped, but everything else matched (sans bayonet). Condition is great and I'm quite happy with my purchase

My first order from Classic Firearms and I have to say that they did right by me. I purchased the 91/30 with laminated stock and hex receiver. I ended up with a 1930 Tula with all matching three digit serial number and "MO" markings. The rifle cleaned up very nicely and truly is (in my book) near excellent condition.
Nice Stock
Review by Bill on 6/29/13

Let me start off by saying that I love Classic Firearms and will always make my online purchases through them. Classic is an awesome company. The following is a review of the Mosin I received not a review of Classic.

I received delivery of my 1938 Tula with hex receiver a month ago. I would appear that Ivan had broken out a bottle of potato vodka before assembling mine.

First the barrel was counterbored. Being a collector of Mosins this was a major disappointment. All the numbers did not match with the magazine plate number struck out and a "matching" number engraved. The butt plate had no number which is a first with my collection. The barrel bore was in good shape and shiny with no rust.

This rifle arrived with the most cosmoline I have ever seen with any of my purchases. But that is not a negative. It was an interesting project cleaning this gun for firing.

The bolt assembly fell apart in my hands when I removed it from the receiver. Once again Ivan was hitting the bottle. Thankfully, there was nothing wrong with the bolt; it had just been assembled backwards.

The stock is beautiful, and I love these stocks when they are combined with the older Mosins.

I bought and received this gun knowing it would be "luck of the draw" as to what its condition would be. This is just the way it is with the surplus market.

For the price of this firearm it is worth taking a chance that you will receive a rifle in better collector condition than what I received.

Make no mistake this gun is a shooter; it just isn't a collector piece.

I will continue to purchase my firearms from Classic and enjoy the excitement and ride that these fine folks provide me.
Outstanding quality and service!

Review by Zach on 6/24/13

Update to my first Review.

This was my 5th order from Classic and 8th rife shipped from them. Classic has always shipped out fast and so far I have had great service. This is my second review of these rifles after I had some time to really clean them up. These are nice rifles but to a collector might come up short.

I ordered two Hex laminated stock M91/30 at a cost of $421.00. What I received was what I feel is not worth the price. While I understand supply will slowly dry up and prices will increase, these are not what I was hoping to get. For the cost of over $200.00 for one M91/30, I was expecting to get a rifle that was closer to what a collector would expect. So far most of the rifles I have received from Classic have been very nice. I often pay the extra cost for hand pick also. As this was not an option and the price was near double the cost of my previous orders, i figured they were all high quality. I was excited to open the boxes, 5 mins after he UPS guy dropped them off I had them open. They were double boxed and had bubble wrap around the bolt to keep them from popping out the box. I also noticed that both were opened beforehand, as the brown paper tape on the inside box was cut and had plastic tape covering it.

What I received was one 1929 Izzy and a 1930 Tula. As some others have already stated mine were both Counter bored. Not a good sign. This was the first thing I looked at. Also both were forced matched. This made my excitement level crash. Instantly I knew I had made an mistake ordering these. Both the bolt and magazine floor plate were electric pen engraved, one bolt handle was grounded down to what looked like a octagonal shape instead of being round. Both rifles butt plates are painted black and don't have any serial numbers at all. There was alot of black paint that was pealing off near the muzzle on both. Of course the bayonet didn't match, but I figured that was going to be the case as none that I have ordered have. The stock was the best part, looked very nice. However for me these rifles appear to be pieced together and have little collector value.

The boars look clean and shiny and other then the counter bored barrel shoots straight. I found very little rust appears to be in good shape for age. There is a little more trigger play then my others but can be corrected with aftermarket springs. After this I raise it to 3 stars from 2

For someone just looking to get a nice looking hex, these may be for you. But if you would like to increase your collection with a nice matching laminated hex, I would order from somewhere else, or at least wait until they get a new shipment in, as I feel that most of them are the same condition. Next time I hope they offer an option for matching numbers. I have ordered from Classic before with that option and have been pleased. I dont know if this is the only quality they can get now that supply is getting sorter? I would rather pay more and hand pick from a gun store, then take another $400.00 gamble.

I will order again, however would like if they have a hand pick option to ease my worries of getting another dud.
Classic does a good job, but I hope for better selection in the future.
Thanks Guys

Hi Zach - Thank you for the review. Laminate stock M91/30 rifles were all re-arsenaled several years post war and thus why there will be a higher percentage of these with force matched numbers than you will see with standard M91/30 rifles. This was the largest batch of laminate rifles with hex receivers we've ever received. We do believe the combination of hex receiver plus the laminate stock to be one of the most rare - at least from what have received here and we've had hundreds of thousands come through here over the years. In the end, we certainly don't want you to be unhappy with your purchase, so please do reach out to us if you would like to return the 2 rifles. We want you to have confidence when doing business with our company. Thanks and God bless.

Took this out to the range, and it shot very well. I am very pleased with this firearm, bore was mirror bright and shiny with strong rifling. Don't know if it's been counterbored or not. Unfortunately, bayonet was not matching. However, everything else was. Cosmoline was everywhere and took some time to get off. Boiling water works great though. No signs of rust, functions very well. Nothing was damaged. After cleaning up cosmoline, rifle looks and shoots great. Would Recommend.

Having been pleased with my past purchases from Classic, I rushed at the chance for a 91/30 hex receiver - as it turned out , the laminated stock was being offered as well , what a bonus. After reading the one less than happy review, I just figured that there IS a chance that I may be one of those "less than happy individuals" as well . It arrived and I eagerly opened the box. A 1932 Izzy (I already have 2 Izzy's - oh well) All numbers match -excluding the tent stake (It's a shooter - don't care) It has been counter bored but not concerned. Beautiful stock with just enough stampings to be cool ,and a nice brown sling.

There is enough cosmoline to choke a horse, which is good because there is not a spot of rust anywhere. A word to buyers - If you are expecting a "new" looking riffle , then buy a new riffle. These are mil surp pieces , so expect them to look like they've been handled a little .

Cleaning cosmoline off is a very exciting event for me, not only do you get to see the transformation but you get very familiar with the riffle. I polish the bolt at the same time for smoothness

Classic Firearms has become my favorite site and my purchases have all exceeded my expectations. Had there been a hand pick option, my money would have been wasted since what I received was more than satisfactory without it.
Excellent piece ! I just wish I lived closer so that I could say thank you in person

Ordered rifle while on two weeks training in the national guard. Excellent gift to myself upon return home. Just clean my 1930 Tula Hex today. Rifling is excellent !! End result is a shiny bore. Some scratches on stock. I plan on sanding, red stain, and several coast of tru oil. Bluing very good except around front of the barrel. black paint. I will take care of it. Its fun for me to work on these Mosins. Trigger a bit stiff. The end result is that I'm very satisfied. Ordered before and will order again from Classic. Ammo is next. Buy a Mosin or two while out there at reasonable prices.

I've purchased three Mosin Nagants from Classic and recommended to a young man to get his first MN from Classic and get the hex laminated stock. After he ordered it I saw the reviews and got worried. His gun was received quickly and with more cosmoline than I thought was possible. He brought it by and we cleaned it up together. It was a real nice treasure. 1938 Izzy with all matching serial numbers and a beautiful laminated stock with hardly a scratch on it! It was great to see a young guy get a nice rifle with his hard earned money. Seeing the big smile on his face was worth cleaning all the cosmoline out of the gun. Thanks Classic!
not exactly what I expected
Review by steven on 6/14/13

Researched some about nagant before I ordered and felt like Classic had a pretty good reputation so I ordered one. Went ahead and spent the extra money to have a really nice one as described on the web page. Had seen that some were sent counterbored so specifically asked for one that was not. I ordered on the 31st of May and received very quickly to Classics credit the gun on the 5th of June. It looked great and was not counterbored. The bad thing was that it had the serial numbers stenciled on the bolt and butt plate to make it match which was very disappointing considering that they were not described this way. It also had some black paint on it which I could scrap off with my fingernail and the bluing beneath it seemed good except for a spot on the back right side of receiver that had no bluing on it under the paint. I feel like for the money the gun should have been stamp matching and not stenciled. The gun should have been described this way on the web page and not represented as being rare and highly collectible with forced matching numbers. I gave them a 3 on the review because of this. I didn't feel they were represented as accurately as they should have been. To Classics credit the gun is mechanically very nice though. This was my first gun order off the internet and now I'm on the fence about taking that chance again.
Very Nice Rifle

This is my 3rd purchase from Classic Firearms and it probably won't be my last. I recently purchased a Laminate stock Hex receiver Mosin Nagant rifle. With shipping It put me back $217 but it is money well spent! Be prepared, this rifle had more cosmoline on it and in it than any MN I bought! It is a 34 Izzy, counterbored and no matching serial numbers. The magazine floor plate and bolt have the serial number engraved in them and the butt plate has no markings at all on it. The stock is really nice and the rifle is in good shape. The only reason a gave it 4 stars is because I took it to the range today and the firing pin spring broke after 15 rounds cutting short my range session. An new spring will put me back another $15 or so? Overall it a very nice looking, feeling MN. $200 is not a bad price for it considering the local sports store is selling normal run of the mill Izzy's with round receivers for $200 and most of them are not in great shape! Nice work Classic and thanks for a nice piece of history!
I hate being right all the time
Review by Ian on 6/6/13

Well, as you can see from the title I am less than blown away by my purchase.

First off, I have a collection going of Mosin type rifles, and this is my 6th and was to be my "safe queen". The one you don't ever shoot, maybe leave in the cosmoline, etc...

This all started when I saw a post by classicarms on Facebook bragging about their Laminated 91/30s and had a picture of a real nice one. I made the comment that, for the amount they are asking, I simply would not purchase one without a hand select option. When you're buying what is a top of the line Mosin, and paying premium price for one, its hard to leave it up to chance on a rifle that was packaged by Century Arms and never opened once it got to Classic Arms. I know a little bit a obout this process and there is too much variation in the grading system and who decides what category these are in.

Someone from Classic Arms replied and assured me how awesome these are and that I should get one

So, I took the chance and even ordered the Hex Laminate Stock 91/30.

Now lets get down to the nitty gritty.

I paid 218+ shipped, which is a hundred dollars more than any other Mosin I own, and I have some nice ones.

The Good:
The stock is pretty. Looks almost as good as the stock photo on this site, only a few small scratches and that's not from anything Classic did

The finish on MOST of the metal is nice

What is left of the bore looks decent as far as rifling goes.

The Bad:
Counter bored about an inch (negative on collectors value)

Numbers "match" but are electro stenciled on the bolt, magazine floor plate, AND the buttplate (very negative on collectors value, this was hugely dissappointing, I've never seen all three of these parts stenciled on a "very good to excellent" rifle)

Buttplate has been painted or something and looks pretty bad. They didnt even paint the whole thing, so it's basically two-tone; partly blued and partly covered with what looks like some glossy black paint. (Again, negative collectors value)

Bayonet # not matching (not a big deal, don't remember if this was even expected per the description, just would have been nice...)

So, I got a pretty rifle but not the piece I feel I paid for. For 110 to 120 bucks more than my other round receiver regular stock all REAL numbers matching 91/30s I should have gotten something that's actually worth 100-some more to a collector. I'm not sure that just the hex receiver and laminate stock is enough to make it worth much, if any more really than a plane Jane round receiver 91/30 with a nice bore and real matching #s, not stenciled replacement parts.

So, I was right. These NEED a hand select option. I would have gladly paid an extra 25 bucks or even more to get something with real numbers matching parts and not counter bored, and without a Frankenstein buttplate.

So, if you just want a pretty rifle, this might be for you. If you are hoping to get something that is actually worth the money as a collectors item, go look somewhere that offers hand select, unless you don't mind making a 220 dollar gamble. I know for some, that is not much money.

I still highly respect Classicarms, I believe they are great people, I love their respect for God and country, and I will be back in the future if they get hand select going again, or to buy a new firearm or just something to shoot. But I won't be taking any more chances on an item that I believe is priced high enough to have certain expectations on. Thanks.

The Mosin You Want
Review by Anthony on 6/6/13
Quality
You will be very happy with this Mosin. What I just got is similar to what David and Enzee123 received: a very handsome example of the Mosin Nagant, slathered in Cosmoline (when you open the box to inspect it, wear whatever you wear to work on your car or yard - you'll be greasy as hell when you're done.) Stock is a very nice laminated wood, looks pretty free of gouges (hard to tell yet because of the Cosmo, which I think I'll leave it in for now). Bluing appears original or close - it may be refinished and just shiny because of all the grease, but it looks good so far, darker and smoother than any of the other Mosins I've bought (all of which were rearsenaled). Beautiful Tula star on mine, dated 1935. I don't think the serial is scrubbed, because the 4-digit number is the same on the bolt, mag base and buttplate - David, I think we just got a couple of very low serialed guns. Can't totally tell the bore's condition yet because of the cosmo, but there is rifling visible through the grease. Everything else looks sharp. Bayonet did not match. Full accessory kit, bagged up (oiler, tools, ammo pouch, sling), and Classic threw in a spare ammo pouch.

If you're longing for the days (like a year or 2 ago?) of the $80 Mosin, sorry bout that. This isn't an $80 Mosin, but it also ISN'T AN $80 MOSIN. It's a great example for you to put away, not shoot, with all the features and accessories a collector could want.
Almost perfect
Review by enzee123 on 5/30/13

I have three other mosins but this is first hex (and first pre-war). This is in a different class. It's a 1933 Tula MO.I have never seen the finish (not the country) on any Russian mosin. The only Mosin with comparable metalwork (smooth, no external tooling marks, nice bluing) is the Polish wz 44s. The laminated stock is also very nice. I have never had a gun with this much cosmoline in and on it ( a good thing). What makes it just short of perfect is that the receiver is partially scrubbed (can't see arrow in Tula Star, no second MO date though there is a partially visible 5, and no cyrillic letters in front of the four digit serial#). Still very happy with it.

Review by David on 5/29/13

This rifle is very much worth the cost. Sure, the cost of surplus rifles has gone up, but unless you've been living under a rock, you should expect it to be so.
I took this rifle out of the box, got all of the cosmoline off of it, and it is gorgeous. If you've never bought a surplus rifle before, be warned- the cosmoline is EVERYWHERE and does take quite a while to remove. But, that's part of the fun, I think.
I have a "knock around" Mosin I bought a long time ago, and it shoots great, but this rifle shoots even better. It came with all the parts as described, and really is beautiful. I'll try to get a video or pictures to post later.
As for the service from Classic Firearms- fantastic. I had some questions before ordering, and the lady with whom I spoke was very kind and made sure my questions were answered.
I will be ordering again from Classic Firearms.
Oh, and BUY THIS RIFLE! Really- buy it. Why are you still reading this? You should be clicking "Add to cart" right now...

Bayonet, Mag Pouch and Tool Kit.  These are all in very nice condition and as such we are not doing a hand select for condition. From what we have seen these could all pretty much qualify as hand select. Also there will be a mix of Tula and Ishevsk rifles and even some Dragoon era rifles mixed in. We are not selecting for those either or sorting them out. In this environment we are simply too busy to devote the space or manpower toward sorting these rifles and what you get will be luck of the draw.

    Who knows, best case scenario you may end up with something very rare and collectible - Worst case, you will have a really nice Laminated Hex receiver M91/30 with all accessories at a great price. Current Price Limited to Stock On Hand. 

    C & R Eligible 

    Note:  As you may have noticed, the price on these has been slowly creeping up lately and we do not expect that to change for a while. 
    Buy one before the next price increase.

    Stocking Dealer / Collectors Special - Buy a Master Pack of 5 of these fine rifles and save $10.00 Each.....

    Note Part Deux: Some will ask why these boxed rifles have all of their accessories and our crated rifles only have the bayonets. Well here is what I was told.
    These hex receiver rifles have actually been in the country longer than our crated rifles and have been sitting in a bonded warehouse up north without being released for sale by the importer. The importer on these ( Century Arms ) discontinued Nagant sales for a while in order to concentrate on semi-auto rifle production and sales.
    I am told that future shipments may or may not have slings, etc, because they are drying up in the Ukraine, but these rifles, being from an earlier shipment still have them. My advice is to get what you can while the getting is good.  
    Bon Apitite.....

    Absolutely great purchase. Received a Tula Hex that was in great condition. It was not counterbored and since like all laminated stock rifles have been rearsenaled I received one with force-matched numbers. Overall a great buy and definitely shoots up in my collection as one of my favorites.

    I received a 1935 Tula hex receiver rifle that is an interesting mix of pros and cons.

    Pros: The rifle came with a wonderful laminate stock that clean-up beautifully. Additionally, it has crisp Tula markings on a clean hex receiver. Lastly, the barrel is not counter-bored and cleaned up very nicely. It has strong rifling with light frosting so I think it will be a very strong shooter. I look forward to taking it to the range.

    Cons: Forced matching of numbers except for the bolt. No numbering on the bolt at all! The reason I only gave four stars is because of some unusual pitting and missing finish on the barrel around the front sight. This missing finish even happens on the end of the cleaning rod… Very strange.

    But I am happy with my purchase and will continue to buy more C&R guns from Classic Firearms. It is always fun to open the box, wipe way the cosmoline, and see what you got!
    LOVE THIS COMPANY!!!

    So i bought a grade "B" mosin when it was on sale for mothers day for $99...... i think they must have run out because they sent me a 1923 DDR HEX Laminated that is in near mint condition. I had bought two other grade B's, also came as hex's, and were boht in great shape except for minor dings and finish problems.

    As far as the guns go, they are awesome, great rifles that will withstand the test of time and are still relatively inexpensive to shoot. Everybody should own at least 2 of these guns.

    What better way to celebrate the 4th. of July than picking up my very nice 1931 Tula from my local dealer (yes he actually was open for business on July 4. ) ? Finish was quite nice with only a little etching - not what I would call pitting - on the top of the receiver , The only problem is the fact that the bolt was very sloppy, it would come open all by itself if you simply inverted the rifle . My first inclination was to return the rifle for another but being sort of an amateur gunsmith I said to myself " I can fix this " . A bolt connector and guide bar from Sarco and a new firing pin spring from Wolff and it was as good as new . I checked the headspace with gauges by Okie Gauges and headspace was spot on . I advise anyone who shoots or collects Mosins to invest in some headspace gauges. I payed 50.00 for a set of three but all you really need is a no-go gauge . Barrel was pristine with sharp lands and no hint of rust or pitting . I have not shot it yet but I believe this one is going to be a great shooter .

    Awesome job once again Classic. This is a great find with all the options I love on my Mosins. I ordered 10 of the laminated hex Mosin Nagants to get the special pricing and they are all absolutely beautiful - especially the numbers matching 1928 Tula ex dragoon! The others were mostly equally impressive with several double and triple stamped MOs! Half have been re-crowned but no worries as they normally shoot better anyhow. Love them all. Can't go wrong on this investment. I ordered another 10!

    A most excellent rifle
    Review by FireMedicRetired on 5/23/14
    Quality
    First, the importer, Century Arms, put the import marking and serial number on the receiver, in very plain view: thus the four stars. Had Century pot the import mark on the underside of the barrel, I would have given it five stars. This is the ONLY detrimental thing. My rifle is a 1936 Tula with a four digit serial number. The barrel is marked "MO" and "1936/53". From what I understand, this rifle was made by Tula in 1936, and reworked (put through arsenal) in 1953, and then placed with the Defense Ministry ("MO"). Removing the cosmoline/grease was easy. I used many old socks to wipe off the grease. I did not need to use chemicals or detergent to remove it. I did use carb cleaner to remove grease from the bore. The metal finish is very nice, and a very shiny and bright dark blue. The laminated stock is the standard Russian varnish, and is in exceptional condition. The stock is in as-new condition: NO wear indicated! I paid hand pick for the bore and appearance; and this is WELL worth the money for the rifle I got. The bore is not as-new, nor did I expect it to be...the rifle is pre-WWII, 78 years old, and all it has seen is corrosive ammo. The bore has very good rifling, with very slight hint of frost. Overall, the condition of this rifle is outstanding. I am pleased, very pleased. If money allows next month, I just may buy another Mosin. By the way, I do NOT shoot surplus ammo, unless it is brass cased and non-corrosive. With my loaded ammo, I hold 2 minutes out to 600 yards, with the old iron sights. It is not the easiest to do with the Mosin trigger, and the barrel needed to be fouled 30-40 rounds before groups started to tighten. This is a great rifle, with great history. Classic did a fine job representing this rifle and a fine job shipping, with email notifications.

    1935 Tula

    This 1935 Tula had all numbers matching - - no force matches and no stencils. The barrel has excellent rifling - - not counter-bored. All bluing is excellent, also. The laminated stock really shows-off all the parts of this Mosin-Nagant. The bands are from an Izzy, but if I get industrious, I can switch some of my Tula bands from my Izzy rifles onto this great specimen; another great shooter!. Thanks again, Classic!!
    Fantastic!

    I couldn't be more pleased with the rifle I received. A 1928 matching, ex Dragoon Tula with a most beautiful stock! This is a perfect example and more than one could expect from a "surplus" rifle.

    Classic called me for some clarification on the order and once that was worked out, the rifle was in my hands in two days after traveling halfway across the country. Outstanding job by a quality company!

    Thank you!

    I ended up with a 1932 Tula double date.. Love it! The stock is in excellent condition. The rifle finish and bore are the best out of my 4 Mosin's. This thing came LOADED with cosmoline, which is probably why it looks so good. Granted, I think that actually made the Cosmoline come off easier as funny as it sounds.

    Beautiful Mosin Received
    Review by Gary B on 4/16/14
    Quality
    I recently ordered my first Mosin because everyone should have one, right? I did not want to take my chances on a generic $89 version in who knows what condition. So I purchased the $199 hex receiver with laminated stock version. After the usual "cosmo cleanup" and reassembly, I was truly amazed to find a beautiful 1933 Tula in like new condition. The stock was in excellent condition. The barrel and receiver were rust free and bluing was very, very good. The bore and rifling were in great condition and the barrel was not counterbored. No way this rifle was 81 years old! But there it was. Just waiting for a Russian soldier to pick it up and run through the streets of Stalingrad in 1942. Who knows... maybe they did.
    1928 dragoon. Very satisfied
    Review by Chris on 4/16/14
    Quality
    Posted a vid and image, receivers an excellent quality 1928, researched the stampings on the receiver and it is an updated dragoon with modern 91/30 sight leaf. Now I'll keep my eye out for a dragoon sight leaf with tartar increments. Receiver was 100% excellent shape, loaded in cosmoline (which is a good thing!) stock is a gorgeous laminate stock which at different angles turns every other grain lighter and darker than the surrounding grain, bore is mirror shiny, not counterbored, and the crown is immaculate. It honestly looks like it hasn't been fired (except it had, found a bit of gunpowder residue in the chamber upon cleaning, no biggie, still looks brand new). I have already referred a few others to this site because they were very impressed. Shipping wise, it was delivered to my ffl the day ups said it would. Thanks classicfirearms!!!

    I ordered for the first time from classic and can only say that I could not be happier with service and with the rifle I received. The rifle is a 1925 and it is in wonderful shape. the bore after a really good cleaning, miked out at .313 which isn't bad for this type rifle. The Head space was great. The wood was in pretty good shape. So all I can say is thank you for a great deal on a great old rifle that I am proud to own.You can deal with no worries with classic Firearms. well done and thanks to all at classic.

    Hex Laminated 91/30
    Review by Jim L. on 3/26/14
    Quality
    I've never written a review for anything before, however, this rifle has inspired me to lend some insight into this purchase: I'm currently removing the cosmoline after disassembling the rifle. Everytime something is removed, and wiped down, another portion of a beautiful rifle is revealed. It's a 1928 Izzy complete with the bow and arrow proof mark, cyrillic rollmarking across the receiver, a wreathed hammer and sickle, and it is gorgeous. The blueing looks brand new. Minus a couple of scratches on the stock, it is mint. All stamped serial numbers match (buttplate, bolt, receiver, and trigger guard). I am still soaking the parts, including the bayonet, so I don't know if it also has matching numbers or not. It also is not back bored. Only a couple of spots look like it's been touched up with some black paint, but it's been nicely done and looks good. I noticed a couple of other posts that mentioned stuff getting scratched during shipment, but everything was carefully and tightly bubble wrapped, and packaged. I have a half dozen other mosins, but this is my first laminated stock model. IT IS AWESOME. I haven't scrubbed the barrel out yet, so I can't comment on the condition of the bore, but will update this post later if I can. At this point, I am ECSTATIC about this purchase. This rifle is fantastic, and it is litterally dripping with history!
    Exceeded Expectations - Fine 91-year-old Tula!
    Review by Seattle Dave on 3/19/14
    Quality
    Unboxed my (very first) Mosin-Nagant today, and was crossing my fingers a bit, given that I didn't order a handful of them like some do, from which to pick and choose my favorite from the lot.
    Luck was on my side! It's a beautiful 1925 Tula with Hex receiver, all numbers match (except the bayonet, no biggie), stamped numbers, not engraved. I feel that I certainly got my money's worth, and that the extra premium I paid was rewarded. The laminate stock is in remarkably good shape, and even though it's not original-1925 furniture, it looks *really* great.
    First layer of cosmoline is off, and I spent a lot of time cleaning out the bore. It hasn't been counter-bored, which either way would have been fine with me. The original rifling is showing some wear, probably down to about half of what was there 91 years ago. Plenty enough to spin the bullet. Getting a close-up view of the bore under bright lighting shows it looking very good, pretty smooth, minimal scratching. A few places on the metal has been touch-up painted, but done well.
    You know, the last WAC gun show I went to two weeks ago had many Mosin Nagants, none nearly this nice, and all asking prices were north of $300. Thank you so very much, Classic Firearms. I suspect I'll be back for more (probably a Grade B, to turn into a project).

    This is my first laminate hex receiver but 4th 91/30 rifle from Classic. This rifle is in excellent condition with an original date from Tula 1932. There are an additional two dates stamped on receiver as well. I stripped the stock off to evaluate any hidden corrosion. I was very pleased to see no corrosion or rust at all. This rifle came with a little cosmoline but nothing like two rifles I received last year. I will do a thorough cleaning and be shooting this very soon. Thanks Classic, I'll be ordering from you again!

    Purchased two 91/30's (this one and one of the "B" Grade Molot rifles). First Mosin Nagants for me. I thought this one would be a gem, but as it turns out, not so much. I received a 1934 Ishevsk, with forced match, electro-engraved numbers on the bolt, floor plate and butt plate. The laminate stock is very nice, but does have a toe splice. Service was great. I will purchase from Classic again.

    it is a beautiful piece of history at an incredible price. Just finished cleaning the cosmoline off and putting it back together. The only down side to the order was that it came with two sets of ammo pouches. One wrapped and one was not. The one that was not wrapped was free floating in the box and and etched a jagged 1 inch line in the laminated wood of the buttstock during shipping. Those clasps on the ammo pouches are pointy. It's kind of shame paying for the nicer stock and having this happen.

    The short of it is I am very impressed with the service, and with the gun (1 of 2 I bought). My other purchase had a "hand selection" option and the stock on that gun was exquisite. The grain on the stock of this gun was only exceptional. Don't get me wrong, it is a used gun, but the reconditioning was very nicely done, and the dark wood stock with deep darker grain lines in it had my FFL impressed to the point that they stopped complaining about the cosmoline smell and mess. The guns spent 10 days in Comu-fornia prison and then were sent off to the gunsmith for cleaning and overall check, now I am in the process of moving and so I have not had time to play with them, but I will update probably in a month once the dust settles around the new house. Thanks guys, I am very happy.

This is what leary gave me. A 80 yr old hex "MO" in a condition I think it was never used, It had all matching serials and no counter bore. Before i EVEN received the shipment of guns I was thinking that it would be a lemon. This gun is another just clean and use no need to refinish, Thats 3 for 3 on the rifes!, Thank you Classic Firearms!.
    Very disappointed!!!

    I picked up my rifle this evening. I got it home and unboxed it. The good news: The stock was nice and it had not been counterbored. The bad news: It had all forced matching numbers. The rifling in the bore was almost worn out. It is a 1932 Izhevsk.

    Hi LSWJR - Glad to hear the stock was nice on your rifle. Also glad to hear not counter bored if that matters to you - however, counter bore has no negative impact on accuracy and if anything will improve the gun as a shooter. Force matched #s are very common on laminate rifles and is noted in the ad. Regarding the rifling, it would be quite a rarity for the rifling to be worn out on one of these rifles. May I suggest.....if you haven't already done so, please give the bore a good cleaning and then run a few rounds through it. I think you will find the rifling to be much better after doing so :) Let us know and give us call if any concerns or if you are still unhappy with your purchase. We certainly want you to be satisfied with your purchase from us and will make it right if you are not. Thanks and God bless.

    received my purchase in 4 business days, 1933 M91/30...no matching numbers but with that said I Love this weapon. After an extensive cleanup I discovered a beautiful old rifle. Looks like a new bayonet. Woodwork looks like a small repair but done expertly. Small dings and scratches under a sloppy lamination job but since I'm prepared to refinish stock I expected this. The only reason I deducted a star was because non matching numbers and about used up barrel rifling, not too bad though I plan to shoot it next month and will see if I can get a decent group. I will get another one later on this rear but might try an earlier year model since I like to shoot them.

    Ordered on a Thursday afternoon, arrived following Monday morning. I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the laminated stock. Cleaned it up and shot it 2 days later, deadly accurate. Not bad for an almost 80 year rifle. This was my 2nd purchase from Classic, soon to be followed by my 3rd. I've recommended to my friends and brag about Classic on the Mosin FB pages. Y'all better get one soon and get it from Classic Firearms-a great bunch of good Christian people.

    So I bought a box of five round receiver guns last month and was so pleased that I thought I'd take a chance on the hexes. I expected mis-matched serial numbers (or forced numbers). This was going to be my permission to play with these things since they weren't 100%. Well, five of five have all matching serial numbers. All have apparently new stocks. And most importantly, every bore is pristine. I have these cleaned up and plan to just put them away and do my playing with the round receivers I recently got.

    Service was outstanding. I can't recommend this purchase enough. You often hear people low ball Mosin prices. Well, I think you get what you pay for. In this case, I think I got way more than I paid for.
    Great Shooter but Needed Work and Still Not A Collectors Choice
    Review by Ole Folky on 9/22/13
    Quality
    First of all, this is not critical of Classic Firearms-they have been great in all areas. This is more of providing some reality to the quality of seemingly diminishing supplies of Mosin Nagants. I have four of these great rifles and this last one was a little bit of a disappointment and here's why: I picked it up at my FFL dealer and excitedly spirited it home to clean it up and check function to get it ready for the range. The main disappointment I found is that it is a "forced match numbers" offering. It is a 1934 Izzy Hex and has a very nice laminated stock but has the "matching" numbers on the bolt, mag plate, & butt plate scribed in with an electric engraver. Real matching numbers would give it some collector value to justify the price-such was not the case. The good is that it was very well set up and is a great shooter: the head space is perfect, the bolt is a great fit, the rifling is excellent and it is very accurate- probably the most accurate of the four I have. There was a little rust here and there-nothing serious- and the bluing leaves a little to be desired. I touched up the bluing in several places to refine the appearance a bit. The refinished stock looked pretty darned good but I steel wool buffed it and added a thin coat of Tru-Oil and rubbed that out with rottenstone-great improvement. I also had to get the brown stained varnish overspray off the steel escutcheons in the stock for the strap slots and I also stripped the overspray off the butt plate to reveal the nice bluing beneath it. After all that, the appearance is greatly improved but it still has less collector value than I anticipated with the price I paid. Still, it is a great shooter in the proud tradition of 91/30 Mosins. I have gotten some nice comments on the appearance but they didn't notice the numbers thing. So, bottom line is that the supplies of Mosins may be beginning to run out or at least low of the really nice ones. We should not expect perfection on 70 to 90 year old rifles and getting a really nice one is a crap shoot at best. But it sure is a great shooter!! I'm enjoying it for what it is.

    I have bought several items from classic firearms and their service has always been an A+. This was my second laminate hex from classic firearms and I could not have been more pleased with this rifle. All matching numbers and a triple date ex-dragoon (1929,46,53) to boot. As with every rifle I have bought from them the bore is bright and there is 0 pitting. Being from NY it is so hard to find anything like this worth buying especially with the high prices. Classic firearms makes it possible for anyone on any budget to get the best item possible. Thanks again Classic for all that you do and for all that you stand for!

    The laminated stock really stands out at the range. A 1934 Izzy cleaned up nicely. Barrel was counter-bored; however, a CNC Warrior, 15 mm RH, AK-74 type muzzle brake was easily threaded with a cleaning patch used to stabilize the die starter. Again, sounds like a cannon, but kicks like an AK-47! My 6th Mosin-Nagant from Classic - - do I have enough, yet? Thanks again, Classic Firearms!

    This was my first C&R purchase and Im pretty happy with what I received. I got a matching numbers 1936 Tula.,which I think was the last year for the Hex receiver. The stock is beautiful, no pits or rust, and the gun is in good working order. Shoots straight with no problems.

    My only disappointment with the gun is that the entire barrel from the rear sight forward was painted, which promptly came off while I was removing the cosmoline. Fortunately the metal underneath was rust free. I dont blame Classic as the painting had to be done when they were re arsenal-ed, All in all a good purchase and a great gun.

    A coworker suggested that I pick up a Mosin while they were still relatively abundant. I looked around for quite a while, and this deal seemed about as good as I could find for features/price.

    I picked up the rifle from my FFL this morning.I immediately checked the year, armory marks and rear sight to determine what I had. Much to my delight, I received a 1934 Tula w/ matching serial numbers all around except for the bayonet (not worries there!). I haven't inspected much more closely than that, but the rifle seems to be in excellent condition.

    All of the other accessories described online were present.

    The cosmoline is as expected - hey, it's your friend with these rifles. I'll spend the 4th (and probably the 5th too) cleaning it up, take a trip to the gunsmith for a headspace check, then maybe get to the range this weekend for a first shoot.

    All in all, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and Classic's service. I will definitely consider Classic for another purchase in the future...I think the 91/30 might just need an AK to keep it company next to the AR15 and 1911 in the gun safe...

    Due to not having an FFL03, I had to go through my deal, however, shipping to my dealer was as fast as expected

    I ended up with a 1936 Tula. Any receiver markings are discreet (it's not all stamped up)

    Stock is very nice with a toe splice that is not a repair, but prob due to not having enough wood for a full stock. This is fairly common

    Muzzle does have some painting on the end, some of which came off during cleaning. There was also some very minor rust pitting in two spots no bigger than 1/2 inch long. Butt plate was also painted

    Overall, floorplate was struck and restamped, but everything else matched (sans bayonet). Condition is great and I'm quite happy with my purchase

    My first order from Classic Firearms and I have to say that they did right by me. I purchased the 91/30 with laminated stock and hex receiver.

    Let me start off by saying that I love Classic Firearms and will always make my online purchases through them. Classic is an awesome company. The following is a review of the Mosin I received not a review of Classic.

    I received delivery of my 1938 Tula with hex receiver a month ago. I would appear that Ivan had broken out a bottle of potato vodka before assembling mine.

    First the barrel was counterbored. Being a collector of Mosins this was a major disappointment. All the numbers did not match with the magazine plate number struck out and a "matching" number engraved. The butt plate had no number which is a first with my collection. The barrel bore was in good shape and shiny with no rust.

    This rifle arrived with the most cosmoline I have ever seen with any of my purchases. But that is not a negative. It was an interesting project cleaning this gun for firing.

    The bolt assembly fell apart in my hands when I removed it from the receiver. Once again Ivan was hitting the bottle. Thankfully, there was nothing wrong with the bolt; it had just been assembled backwards.

    The stock is beautiful, and I love these stocks when they are combined with the older Mosins.

    I bought and received this gun knowing it would be "luck of the draw" as to what its condition would be. This is just the way it is with the surplus market.

    For the price of this firearm it is worth taking a chance that you will receive a rifle in better collector condition than what I received.

    Make no mistake this gun is a shooter; it just isn't a collector piece.

    I will continue to purchase my firearms from Classic and enjoy the excitement and ride that these fine folks provide me.
    Outstanding quality and service!

    Update to my first Review.

    This was my 5th order from Classic and 8th rife shipped from them. Classic has always shipped out fast and so far I have had great service. This is my second review of these rifles after I had some time to really clean them up. These are nice rifles but to a collector might come up short.

    I ordered two Hex laminated stock M91/30 at a cost of $421.00. What I received was what I feel is not worth the price. While I understand supply will slowly dry up and prices will increase, these are not what I was hoping to get. For the cost of over $200.00 for one M91/30, I was expecting to get a rifle that was closer to what a collector would expect. So far most of the rifles I have received from Classic have been very nice. I often pay the extra cost for hand pick also. As this was not an option and the price was near double the cost of my previous orders, i figured they were all high quality. I was excited to open the boxes, 5 mins after he UPS guy dropped them off I had them open. They were double boxed and had bubble wrap around the bolt to keep them from popping out the box. I also noticed that both were opened beforehand, as the brown paper tape on the inside box was cut and had plastic tape covering it.

    What I received was one 1929 Izzy and a 1930 Tula. As some others have already stated mine were both Counter bored. Not a good sign. This was the first thing I looked at. Also both were forced matched. This made my excitement level crash. Instantly I knew I had made an mistake ordering these. Both the bolt and magazine floor plate were electric pen engraved, one bolt handle was grounded down to what looked like a octagonal shape instead of being round. Both rifles butt plates are painted black and don't have any serial numbers at all. There was alot of black paint that was pealing off near the muzzle on both. Of course the bayonet didn't match, but I figured that was going to be the case as none that I have ordered have. The stock was the best part, looked very nice. However for me these rifles appear to be pieced together and have little collector value.

    The boars look clean and shiny and other then the counter bored barrel shoots straight. I found very little rust appears to be in good shape for age. There is a little more trigger play then my others but can be corrected with aftermarket springs. After this I raise it to 3 stars from 2

    For someone just looking to get a nice looking hex, these may be for you. But if you would like to increase your collection with a nice matching laminated hex, I would order from somewhere else, or at least wait until they get a new shipment in, as I feel that most of them are the same condition. Next time I hope they offer an option for matching numbers. I have ordered from Classic before with that option and have been pleased. I dont know if this is the only quality they can get now that supply is getting sorter? I would rather pay more and hand pick from a gun store, then take another $400.00 gamble.

    I will order again, however would like if they have a hand pick option to ease my worries of getting another dud.
    Classic does a good job, but I hope for better selection in the future.
    Thanks Guys

    Hi Zach - Thank you for the review. Laminate stock M91/30 rifles were all re-arsenaled several years post war and thus why there will be a higher percentage of these with force matched numbers than you will see with standard M91/30 rifles. This was the largest batch of laminate rifles with hex receivers we've ever received. We do believe the combination of hex receiver plus the laminate stock to be one of the most rare - at least from what have received here and we've had hundreds of thousands come through here over the years. In the end, we certainly don't want you to be unhappy with your purchase, so please do reach out to us if you would like to return the 2 rifles. We want you to have confidence when doing business with our company. Thanks and God bless.

    Took this out to the range, and it shot very well. I am very pleased with this firearm, bore was mirror bright and shiny with strong rifling. Don't know if it's been counterbored or not. Unfortunately, bayonet was not matching. However, everything else was. Cosmoline was everywhere and took some time to get off. Boiling water works great though. No signs of rust, functions very well. Nothing was damaged. After cleaning up cosmoline, rifle looks and shoots great. Would Recommend.

    Having been pleased with my past purchases from Classic, I rushed at the chance for a 91/30 hex receiver - as it turned out , the laminated stock was being offered as well , what a bonus. After reading the one less than happy review, I just figured that there IS a chance that I may be one of those "less than happy individuals" as well . It arrived and I eagerly opened the box. A 1932 Izzy (I already have 2 Izzy's - oh well) All numbers match -excluding the tent stake (It's a shooter - don't care) It has been counter bored but not concerned. Beautiful stock with just enough stampings to be cool ,and a nice brown sling.

    There is enough cosmoline to choke a horse, which is good because there is not a spot of rust anywhere. A word to buyers - If you are expecting a "new" looking riffle , then buy a new riffle. These are mil surp pieces , so expect them to look like they've been handled a little .

    Cleaning cosmoline off is a very exciting event for me, not only do you get to see the transformation but you get very familiar with the riffle. I polish the bolt at the same time for smoothness

    Classic Firearms has become my favorite site and my purchases have all exceeded my expectations. Had there been a hand pick option, my money would have been wasted since what I received was more than satisfactory without it.

    Ordered rifle while on two weeks training in the national guard. Excellent gift to myself upon return home. Just clean my 1930 Tula Hex today. Rifling is excellent !! End result is a shiny bore. Some scratches on stock. I plan on sanding, red stain, and several coast of tru oil. Bluing very good except around front of the barrel. black paint. I will take care of it. Its fun for me to work on these Mosins. Trigger a bit stiff. The end result is that I'm very satisfied. Ordered before and will order again from Classic. Ammo is next. Buy a Mosin or two while out there at reasonable prices.

    I've purchased three Mosin Nagants from Classic and recommended to a young man to get his first MN from Classic and get the hex laminated stock. After he ordered it I saw the reviews and got worried. His gun was received quickly and with more cosmoline than I thought was possible. He brought it by and we cleaned it up together. It was a real nice treasure. 1938 Izzy with all matching serial numbers and a beautiful laminated stock with hardly a scratch on it! It was great to see a young guy get a nice rifle with his hard earned money. Seeing the big smile on his face was worth cleaning all the cosmoline out of the gun. Thanks Classic!

    Researched some about nagant before I ordered and felt like Classic had a pretty good reputation so I ordered one. Went ahead and spent the extra money to have a really nice one as described on the web page. Had seen that some were sent counterbored so specifically asked for one that was not. I ordered on the 31st of May and received very quickly to Classics credit the gun on the 5th of June. It looked great and was not counterbored. The bad thing was that it had the serial numbers stenciled on the bolt and butt plate to make it match which was very disappointing considering that they were not described this way. It also had some black paint on it which I could scrap off with my fingernail and the bluing beneath it seemed good except for a spot on the back right side of receiver that had no bluing on it under the paint. I feel like for the money the gun should have been stamp matching and not stenciled. The gun should have been described this way on the web page and not represented as being rare and highly collectible with forced matching numbers. I gave them a 3 on the review because of this. I didn't feel they were represented as accurately as they should have been. To Classics credit the gun is mechanically very nice though. This was my first gun order off the internet and now I'm on the fence about taking that chance again.

    This is my 3rd purchase from Classic Firearms and it probably won't be my last. I recently purchased a Laminate stock Hex receiver Mosin Nagant rifle. With shipping It put me back $217 but it is money well spent! Be prepared, this rifle had more cosmoline on it and in it than any MN I bought! It is a 34 Izzy, counterbored and no matching serial numbers. The magazine floor plate and bolt have the serial number engraved in them and the butt plate has no markings at all on it. The stock is really nice and the rifle is in good shape. The only reason a gave it 4 stars is because I took it to the range today and the firing pin spring broke after 15 rounds cutting short my range session. An new spring will put me back another $15 or so? Overall it a very nice looking, feeling MN. $200 is not a bad price for it considering the local sports store is selling normal run of the mill Izzy's with round receivers for $200 and most of them are not in great shape! Nice work Classic and thanks for a nice piece of history!
    I hate being right all the time
    Review by Ian on 6/6/13
    Quality
    Well, as you can see from the title I am less than blown away by my purchase.

    First off, I have a collection going of Mosin type rifles, and this is my 6th and was to be my "safe queen". The one you don't ever shoot, maybe leave in the cosmoline, etc...

    This all started when I saw a post by classicarms on Facebook bragging about their Laminated 91/30s and had a picture of a real nice one. I made the comment that, for the amount they are asking, I simply would not purchase one without a hand select option. When you're buying what is a top of the line Mosin, and paying premium price for one, its hard to leave it up to chance on a rifle that was packaged by Century Arms and never opened once it got to Classic Arms. I know a little bit a obout this process and there is too much variation in the grading system and who decides what category these are in.

    Someone from Classic Arms replied and assured me how awesome these are and that I should get one

    So, I took the chance and even ordered the Hex Laminate Stock 91/30.

    Now lets get down to the nitty gritty.

    I paid 218+ shipped, which is a hundred dollars more than any other Mosin I own, and I have some nice ones.

    The Good:
    The stock is pretty. Looks almost as good as the stock photo on this site, only a few small scratches and that's not from anything Classic did

    The finish on MOST of the metal is nice

    What is left of the bore looks decent as far as rifling goes.

    The Bad:
    Counter bored about an inch (negative on collectors value)

    Numbers "match" but are electro stenciled on the bolt, magazine floor plate, AND the buttplate (very negative on collectors value, this was hugely dissappointing, I've never seen all three of these parts stenciled on a "very good to excellent" rifle)

    Buttplate has been painted or something and looks pretty bad. They didnt even paint the whole thing, so it's basically two-tone; partly blued and partly covered with what looks like some glossy black paint. (Again, negative collectors value)

    Bayonet # not matching (not a big deal, don't remember if this was even expected per the description, just would have been nice...)

    So, I got a pretty rifle but not the piece I feel I paid for. For 110 to 120 bucks more than my other round receiver regular stock all REAL numbers matching 91/30s I should have gotten something that's actually worth 100-some more to a collector. I'm not sure that just the hex receiver and laminate stock is enough to make it worth much, if any more really than a plane Jane round receiver 91/30 with a nice bore and real matching #s, not stenciled replacement parts.

    So, I was right. These NEED a hand select option. I would have gladly paid an extra 25 bucks or even more to get something with real numbers matching parts and not counter bored, and without a Frankenstein buttplate.

    So, if you just want a pretty rifle, this might be for you. If you are hoping to get something that is actually worth the money as a collectors item, go look somewhere that offers hand select, unless you don't mind making a 220 dollar gamble. I know for some, that is not much money.

    I still highly respect Classicarms, I believe they are great people, I love their respect for God and country, and I will be back in the future if they get hand select going again, or to buy a new firearm or just something to shoot. But I won't be taking any more chances on an item that I believe is priced high enough to have certain expectations on. Thanks.

    The Mosin You Want
    Review by Anthony on 6/6/13
    Quality
    You will be very happy with this Mosin. What I just got is similar to what David and Enzee123 received: a very handsome example of the Mosin Nagant, slathered in Cosmoline (when you open the box to inspect it, wear whatever you wear to work on your car or yard - you'll be greasy as hell when you're done.) Stock is a very nice laminated wood, looks pretty free of gouges (hard to tell yet because of the Cosmo, which I think I'll leave it in for now). Bluing appears original or close - it may be refinished and just shiny because of all the grease, but it looks good so far, darker and smoother than any of the other Mosins I've bought (all of which were rearsenaled). Beautiful Tula star on mine, dated 1935. I don't think the serial is scrubbed, because the 4-digit number is the same on the bolt, mag base and buttplate - David, I think we just got a couple of very low serialed guns. Can't totally tell the bore's condition yet because of the cosmo, but there is rifling visible through the grease. Everything else looks sharp. Bayonet did not match. Full accessory kit, bagged up (oiler, tools, ammo pouch, sling), and Classic threw in a spare ammo pouch.

    If you're longing for the days (like a year or 2 ago?) of the $80 Mosin, sorry bout that. This isn't an $80 Mosin, but it also ISN'T AN $80 MOSIN. It's a great example for you to put away, not shoot, with all the features and accessories a collector could want.
    Almost perfect
    Review by enzee123 on 5/30/13

    I have three other mosins but this is first hex (and first pre-war). This is in a different class. It's a 1933 Tula MO.I have never seen the finish (not the country) on any Russian mosin. The only Mosin with comparable metalwork (smooth, no external tooling marks, nice bluing) is the Polish wz 44s. The laminated stock is also very nice. I have never had a gun with this much cosmoline in and on it ( a good thing). What makes it just short of perfect is that the receiver is partially scrubbed (can't see arrow in Tula Star, no second MO date though there is a partially visible 5, and no cyrillic letters in front of the four digit serial#). Still very happy with it.

    This rifle is very much worth the cost. Sure, the cost of surplus rifles has gone up, but unless you've been living under a rock, you should expect it to be so.
    I took this rifle out of the box, got all of the cosmoline off of it, and it is gorgeous. If you've never bought a surplus rifle before, be warned- the cosmoline is EVERYWHERE and does take quite a while to remove. But, that's part of the fun, I think.
    I have a "knock around" Mosin I bought a long time ago, and it shoots great, but this rifle shoots even better. It came with all the parts as described, and really is beautiful. I'll try to get a video or pictures to post later.
    As for the service from Classic Firearms- fantastic. I had some questions before ordering, and the lady with whom I spoke was very kind and made sure my questions were answered.
    I will be ordering again from Classic Firearms.
    Oh, and BUY THIS RIFLE! Really- buy it. Why are you still reading this? You should be clicking "Add to cart" right now...
