Historic Russian M91/30 Mosin Nagant rifle, 5rd Bolt Action 7.62x54R caliber.

Please Note: Due to the high demand and limited availability, our Hex Receiver options on these rifles have already sold out.   We may find a very few more toward the end of the run and if so we will add this option back to the site at that time.
 
* We are now offering a Hand Select option for best of 10 overall cosmetically for an additional charge of only $15.00.

* We have discovered some crates that have bayonets inside that are serial #'ed to the rifles.  As such we are now also offering hand select for matching bayonets.  Now it takes a  little extra effort to sort though and match up the right bayonet, to the right rifle, but while supplies last, for an additional $10.00 hand select charge we will do that for you.  If you select this option the bayonet will have a stamped serial # that matches the primary stamped serial # on the receiver of the rifle.  Without this option you will still receive a bayonet but it will not have a matching serial number.

Note: For multiple rifles in different configurations, simply add them to your cart individually.

Looking for a quantity of rifles and like to save money with the luck of the draw?  Buy a full unopened crate of 6 unrefinished rifles for only $1080 plus shipping and you'll get a random mixture exactly as they shipped to us.  View our rifles by the crate page here.

Brutus' Description

We are so excited to finally be able to bring these great rifles back to you once again!

Now believe me, we are sensitive to the fact that in the surplus gun industry we always hear the phrase "These will be the last ones ever," and sometimes that turns out to not always come true.  Many of us have admittedly been guilty of crying wolf in the past but know that in those cases we are simply passing along what we are told.

In this case, we are told by the importer that is the last shipment of M91/30 rifles allowed out of the Ukraine due to the Russian agression in that region.  Given the political landscape in that region and general chatter in the industry, we feel strongly that this is true and that these will be the last ones imported, at least for the foreseeable future, and we paid the premium required in order to procure them and be able to offer them to you. We have assurances that we got them all... and we are proud to be able to bring them to you now.

We are also told that these were the last group of rifles remaining in a particular arsenal and that these rifles were actually just in the beginning stages of transit when the Russian's moved into Crimea and occupied the eastern part of that region. These rifles were delayed  many times along the way as both physical and diplomatic roadblocks hindered their progression during every step of their transport. The transport permits were stalled time and again and much persuasion of different sorts had to be applied to the right people along the way.  In other words it took a Herculean and very costly effort  to finally get them to a safe port for export and get them out of that region.... but to our great relief,  they are finally here.

As for pricing - We were willing to pay a premium for these rifles that we have never before paid for M91/30 rifles. As such we do expect some people to look at our pricing and have sticker shock.  That is understandable as these rifles are priced somewhat higher than they have been in the past and if you deem these too expensive at this price that is certainly your right. All you have to do is not buy them.

We paid what was required to obtain these rifles because we still think that they are a tremendous value even at this price point, and it is our firm belief that even if more become available somewhere down the road,  they will be even more expensive in the future. Nagant rifles have been somewhat underpriced for a long time now, and if any of the remaining quantities do become available somewhere in the distant future, we fully expect the prices to rise.  

Now - About the rifles.  These are Russian made M91/30 Mosin Nagant Rifle 7.62x54r caliber, 5 round Bolt Action.  Mother Russia's most historically proven early battle rifle and the most popular selling rifle by far in the 25 year history of our company.  And why not, these fine rifles have been meticulously maintained in Russian arsenals before being released for export and they look great.  Not only are they 100% functional, but they have a reputation for being reliable, hard hitting, and extremely accurate.  The 7.62x54r round was the Warsaw Pact heavy caliber from the early 20's until modern day, so surplus ammunition is very plentiful and extremely affordable.  This renown cartridge is more powerful than a .308 and ballistically rivals our 30/06 caliber.  This round is more than adequate for harvesting any Big Game animal in North America.  Rifle is extremely accurate up to 300 plus yards with open sights and is capable of accuracy out to 1000 yards with proper optics.

Without a doubt the Mosin Nagant M91/30 provides by far the most bang for the buck of any rifle on the market today.  Here you have a rifle capable of taking any big game in North America at respectable yardage, fires affordable ammo, and can still be obtained for less that the price of a high end pellet rifle. No wonder we have sold thousands upon thousands over the past 25 years. 

We were told by the importer that this group of rifles actually emptied out a particular storage arsenal and based on the way we received these rifle, we tend to believe it. We have never before seen the mixture of small and large crates and packing configurations that we received in this particular lot and the assortment of rifles that they contain are fascinating. 

As for the overall condition of the rifles... Obviously we have not seen every rifle but from what we have seen these look really good overall.  Expect some light scratches , storage marks or finish wear, but overall, these are nice .
Now we always tell people in regards to ordering surplus, that if you are expecting to get a brand new Belgium Browning condition wise when you order one of these then don't order one, chances are you will be disappointed. But we have seen a lot of surplus M91/30s, and by surplus M91/30 rifle standards... these are nice.

But don't take my word for it..

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and even though I have written close to that here I encourage you to look at our pictures and watch the accompanying video of us opening a few crates for inspection. The video reflects a random sampling of the actual rifles that will be packed and shipped and should be a good representation of what you can expect to receive. 


Watch the Video Here

We currently offer these rifles in 2 different choices. Round Receiver Izhevsk, Hex Receiver Izhevsk,  All will come with a bayonet, ammo pouch and field tools.  

The Mosin Nagant M91/30 is a rifle that carries tremendous historical significance and the future ability to be abe to bring these fine rifles into the U.S. or even to get them out of their home country is uncertain...  Get yours today. 

Concerning Tula Rifles.... If you have a Tula rifle currently on order, we feel confident that we will be able to fill the order. 

Concerning Remaining Tulas.....  See Below

We are still in the early stages of sorting and grading these rifles with the vast majority of crates ( as of 4/ 23 /15 ) still palletized and unopened. and we are boxing and shipping as we go. From our review of the first several cases , ( as seen in our video ) and based on  prior experience, we knew  that a certain percentage of these rifles would be Tula or Tula hex and as such advertised them for sale right out of the gate. Needless to say that the response to these 2 options was tremendous. Very quickly we had already sold through, or at least very close to, the total # of tulas that we expect to find in the shipment.

As such, and to avoid  the risk of overselling, we had to pull the Tula option from the site. We are convinced based on our best estimates that we have already sold the vast majority of Tulas that will be available to us in this batch. However, if after completeing the project, there are any small quantities of Tulas remaining, we will re-post to the site. My advice would be to not hold out on the hopes of a Tula... if we do have any left down the road it will be a very small quantity, and the Ishevsk options are very nice, and at a much better price. 

A note about Tula Mfg as opposed to Ishevsk Mfg on these rifles.  - If you are not familiar with the M91/30 rifles you may wonder what is all the fuss about when it comes to Tula versues Ishevsk. Frankly, I have been in the business for 25 years, have sold thousnds upon thousands of these rifles, and I still wonder why some would pay a premium for one over the other myself. The story is this. There were 2 differnent manufacturing Arsenals in Russia that produced these weapons, Tula, and Ishevsk. Both produced rifles to the exact same spec and if the receiver markings were not on the rifles I would defy anyone to ever be able to tell the difference between them. They look the same, perform the same, and the quality of workmanship is the same.

The difference is in the receiver markings. The Tula rifles have a 5 pointed Russian star on top of the receiver, while the Ishevsk will either have no markings, which is rare, or stampings of a wreath with a Russian hammer and sickle emblem which will be the vast majoruty of them. Now markings on any of these rifles either Tula or Ishevsk vary from rifle to rifle based on wear and how deeply they were originally stamped. As such you could always get a Tula with shallow markings, or an Ishevsk with very crisp , clear markings or vice versa.  That is the only difference. 

As such there is really no practical reason to prefer a Tula over an Ishevsk from a performance standpoint.

Tula rifles do command a slightly higher premium on the market place  however for 2 primary reasons.

1 - There were fewer rifles overall made by the Tula plant so the Star marking is somewhat less common

and

2 - People really seem to like that Star marking on the receiver.

Now to me, a firearm is a tool and an implement intended to achieve a result. That result should be effectively and accurately launching a projectile at your intended target. If that is your goal then any of these fine rifles will certainly allow you to meet your objective.

Hitting paper at 25-50-100 yards
Review by Tyler on 5/17/15
Quality
This is an *update* to my recent order of the HEX Izhevsk Mosin Nagant I ordered from the latest batch of crates from Classic Firearms(2015). Took it out to the range the other day and it’s a shooter! I was shooting some Tula and Wolf (no mil surplus ammo) and I was getting decent groups at 25-50-100 yards but consistently high right. After some research I found out that is how the Soviets made them right out of the factory. The soldiers were taught to aim for the belt buckle. So overall, I was doing my part and the rifle was doing its part I am satisfied. After some more range time and training I should have it dialed in where I want it. The mountains were ringing with the pounding echoing sound of 54R! Go get one and see for yourself!

Great example of a Mosin Nagant!
Review by Dylan19606 on 6/23/15
Quality
Was very excited to get my first Mosin Nagant. When it finally arrived (only about 4 days to ship including a Sunday so really 3 days) and I did a lot of research online with price and they were definitely the cheapest. I paid the extra $10 for a number matching bayonet and extra $15 dollars for best cosmetically (out of 10 rifles.) This rifle was beautiful when it came in only very (and i do mean VERY) light spots in the wood finish by the left side by the trigger (wood was a bit lighter than the rest of the stock from wear, but who cares.) When I opened the bolt and held the gun with barrel in air, the bolt fell back like there was nothing holding it, that's really really good for a 70 year old gun that was drenched in sticky cosmoline for 40 of those years and anyone who has a Mosin will tell you that! the only noticeable problem that I seen was the firing pin looked a little bad (like it was not perfectly rounded at the tip it was more with multiple flat angles for lack of better terms) but all in all I am extremely satisfied which led me to do even more business with Classic Firearms. These are good guys that have great customer service. You should also buy your Mosin now, because prices have doubles in the past 2 years and also with the problems that the U.S. is having with Issa Issa and Russia in general, they may never import any more crates in the U.S. so get them now!

Better Than Expected
Review by Chief Joe on 6/21/15
Quality
Were we surprised when the FFL dealer opened the box. I've been around firearms since 1968 so I know a little about them. This is my first order from CF and all I can say is Wow, what a nice piece of history. I have to rate this Mosin Nagant at Very Good! For a 1943 rifle, it looks like it's been minimally used. The stock is in good shape with no dings, chips, cracks, etc. The bolt works smoothly and the overall appearance is better than expected. I got all the goodies with it, except a sling (I don't plan on carrying this monster anyway). And to make my pre-Father's Day gift even sweeter, the number on the bayonet matches the one on the rifle. Thank You CF!
Mosin Nagant
Review by Ricky on 6/20/15
Quality
This is my 1st purchase from Classic Firearms. A couple of my friends have purchased Mosin Nagants from other sources. They were blown away by the quality of mine from Classic Firearms. I did not opt for hand select, but I was most impressed with the one I received. Stock is near perfect, bluing id deep and rich, bolt is slick, clean almost like new. Rifling looks like it has been fired very little or never. After a good cleaning, makes my other MILSUP's look weary. Will be taking to the range next week and see how well it shoots. I gave 5 Stars because I was treated 1st rate as a customer, received with in the week I ordered, great packaging and was contacted thru emails at every step of the process. More than got what I paid for. Will order again from Classic Firearms. Thank you.
Very fine quality on my recent Mosin purchase
Review by David on 6/12/15
Quality
Yes, I notice the prices on Mosins are slipping upward. That's why I got in on another one while I can. I did pay the extra $15 for best of 10 and I believe was worth it. The machine work is very well finished, along with the cosmetics. The barrel is very nice, clean and shiny. Although I haven't had a chance to fire it yet, I'm sure it will hit just fine. My FFL person is a professional weapons expert, said after inspection it is a very fine rifle and I made a good choice. Not considering the age of this rifle, it appears to be near new. I hope to find time very soon to take it out to my range and see what it can do. If I'm allowed another review in brief I'll let you know.
Outstanding

Rifle was in excellent condition and clean. The stocks finish looks brand new and the barrel is in very good shape.
Excellent firearms, easy to own and shoot.
Review by Native Son on 6/4/15
Quality
Received a very nice 1942 Tula Round receiver M91/30 most all numbers matched with the exception of the mag door latch plate which was struck through and renumbered, no big deal.

The bore was dark before cleaning but after running a 30 caliber bore snake through it with some Hoppes #9 (Best for corrosive ammo) I was shocked at the strong rifling and no counter bore.

The wood work was in great shape with a few small surface scratches that can be buffed out easy and all metal work was free of rust and corrosion.

Took it to the range after a good cleaning and a dab of oil, it shot on target and very accurate at 150 yards, I found that adding a small bit of wire insulation on the front sight pin allowed me to use the 1000 meter rear sight at 100 yards, with out the front sight pin extension the rear ladder sight couldn't get me closer than 125 yards.

I did add a slip on limbsaver brand recoil pad over the metal butt stock plate for comfort, with out it my shoulder could only stand about 50 rounds before it started to interfere with my concentration (I had my shoulder rebuilt a year ago after an accident) and it can only take so much recoil, the pad cut the recoil by over 50% so now I can shoot my Mosin Nagant all day with no problems at all.

This was my 2nd Mosin purchase, the first one (1939 Izzy Hex receiver ) had such a rough stock and upper hand guard (purchased at a local gun supplier) that I ordered a Monte Carlo type stock and it was just a drop in fit for the Mosin action and barrel, I also added a modern bi-pod and a sling along with a modern scope and scope mount BUT I wanted a nice example of an original Mosin so that was my reason for getting a 2nd one, so that I could leave one stock.

There are many after market add ones for the Mosin's , tactical stocks, different scope mounts (even "No tap") that utilizes the dove tail hidden under the rear ladder sight and you can also get the scope mount that utilizes the base of the rear ladder sight by just removing the retaining pin, very cool upgrades.

What is there NOT to like about a Mosin Nagant, well made, cheap military grade ammo and flexibility to experiment with modern components and just an attention getter at the range, all my shooting Buddies love my M91/30 and some are looking for their own at the time of this review.

My next Mosin purchase will be an PU Sniper version with original scope and a down turned bolt handle.

Why did I only give it 5 stars....because I didn't have an option of giving it 10 stars !!!

I had done a ton of research on the M91/30 before I began to seek one out and I am happy I did, I was warned in the beginning of my Mosin Journey to "Be careful because they are addicting, and have a habit of multiplying in my gun safe", I am happy I didn't listen because , for the price of a high powered firearm that is so affordable who wouldn't want more than one.

After polishing the internal working parts , adding a good scope and extending the front sight pin I am consistently hitting 2" groups at 100 yards and so far I have been able to get 10" groups at 500 yards with my set up, not bad for 70+ year old weapons.

If you're sitting on the fence about acquiring your first Nagant wait no longer, you will be happy that you got yourself one but probably going to be just a little mad at yourself that you didn't a long time ago, well that is how I felt anyway.

Do your research, get yourself one and treat yourself to a little slice of History and above all , always clean it as soon as possible after you get back from the range if you are using military surplus ammo as it is very corrosive, if you shoot after market / off the shelf ammo then it isn't such a big deal.

I hope my review will inspire others to at least check them out, it will be a long gun purchase that has no equal in value for a whole lot of weapon for a little bit of coin.

Thanks for taking the time to read my review, from a die hard Mosin fan.

Sign me,
Native Son (Northern Blackfeet Tribal Member) and Happy Mosin owner.
Awesome Guns with a great company
Review by jesse on 6/2/15

I am kinda new customer to Classic Firearms, But about 3 mos ago i purchased a 91/30, and a M44.

What can i say, they are surplus, but my 91/30 looked as thou it had never been fired. the stock was kinda scruffed up but the metal looked brand new ehh it was it is, i'll redo the stock anyways or it will just be a great pig shooter.

The M44 i bought was a really nice gun, had some minor wear on the blueing, the stock was in great condition.

Overall i absolutely love both of them, they are shooters too.
So to celebrate i bought i just pissed my wife off and bought another one. :)

Just wish y'all would get more M44's in and the matching pistols, and while your at it how bout getting some M1 Garands in. I know im dreaming.

Would Give 4.5 Stars....
Review by famas44 on 5/25/15

I order C&R rifles from classic and I couldn't pass on these MN 91/30's. I have sold off a few 91/30's and wanted a nice example that wasn't a PU for my collection, and this one didn't disappoint. I didn't order in time for a hex or a Tula, but I didn't really need one, just wanted...and hoped...for a nice Izzy round receiver.

I understand I took a roll of the dice because I didn't pick hand select or get a matching numbered bayonet, however, my rifle is very nice!! A pre-war stock with a 1939r barrel. Lots of stamps and proofs. The tang might be 1938 or 1939 / either way it is correct for the rifle. The barrel is bright and rifling is strong. It has been refurbished, but I could not have asked for a better example from classic.

I would like to add my rifle was boxed very nicely (as it always is). I feel the problems other reviews might have mentions occurred from the shipper.
Must be a mix up disappointed
Review by Matt on 5/21/15
Quality
Very disappointed. Asked for a numbers matching rifle preferably Tula. Got an ishevsh round reciever With the invoice bayonet and rifle all different non matching numbers! They must have mixed up my rifle with someone else's. Honest mistake I'm sure but someone has a numbers matching rifle they didn't pay for. I'm sure classic will exchange it for a matching one. I've had great service from them in the past and don't doubt I'll get it now. Very disappointed though what a let down.

Hi Matt - It is my understanding we are in the process of doing an exchange for you. Our apologies for the mix up! We always do our best, but every now and then, one will slip through the cracks. Thanks for your understanding and for allowing us to make it right. We appreciate you being a customer of Classic Firearms.

I ordered this rifle as soon as the email came out about availability. Pins and needles I tell ya! 10 days later, I pick it up at my local FFL. He was as excited as I was when unpacking it at his shop. He was wishing he had ordered one. Thank you for a beautiful piece of history. I have put 40 rounds through it so far and is a great shooter. It is now mounted in the dining room so we can enjoy viewing it often. Thank you Classic Firearms.
You will not find better!

I am extremely satisfied with my purchase! I ordered an Izzy Hex receiver. Upon receipt not only was it a hex receiver but a 1927 with everything being matching numbers including the bayonet (which I did not ask for). The bore is beautiful and the stock has only some minor scratches/dings. I pulled it apart and had to clean very little. I have not fired it yet but I'm sure it will fire flawlessly. Cabelas had Mosins at $169 but the quality was atrocious compared to the product Classic is sending out.
This was my 2nd purchase from Classic. My first being a Yugo M70 ABII underfolder. They are top notch when it comes to the product and service they provide. Quick shipping and quality product. If you are on the fence about purchasing from Classic, don't be. Jump and make your purchase. You won't be disappointed. I'm sure I will be making other purchases in the future.
Good but bad shipping
Review by Seylan on 5/16/15

This gun is really good! All matching numbers (except bayonet). The stock is pretty bad, chips all over it. I don't mind it but the shipping took too long!
No surprise here
Review by Scott on 5/16/15
Quality
I check the Classicfirearms web site pretty often and I couldn't believe it when I saw they were offering Mosin 91/30's again! I checked at just the right time because there were still some Tula's available so I jumped on it. Good thing too because the next day that option was gone. When I received it from my FFL about a week later it was no surprise I got what was advertised and what I ordered: A wartime Tula round receiver from 1942!
The metal was about 90% original blue and the rest arsenal refinished with that black stuff but very nice none the less. The wood was perfect as far as no dents or scratches. The finish didn't matter because I was going to refinish the stock anyway but what great condition. The people at Classicfirearms.com have never disappointed me, what a great purchase!

I received my Mosin M91/30 yesterday. I unboxed it after getting home and WOW this is a beautiful rifle. Talk about a piece of history. The stock is beautiful, the metal all in excellent shape. The TULA serial number for 1930 on this rifle is 31 and all numbers match including the bayonet. I am very happy with this being my first Mosin. Thank you Classic Arms for getting me the TULA Hex and hand selecting this rifle. We will be doing more business soon.

    Now - About the rifles.  These are Russian made M91/30 Mosin Nagant Rifle 7.62x54r caliber, 5 round Bolt Action.  Mother Russia's most historically proven early battle rifle and the most popular selling rifle by far in the 25 year history of our company.  And why not, these fine rifles have been meticulously maintained in Russian arsenals before being released for export and they look great.  Not only are they 100% functional, but they have a reputation for being reliable, hard hitting, and extremely accurate.  The 7.62x54r round was the Warsaw Pact heavy caliber from the early 20's until modern day, so surplus ammunition is very plentiful and extremely affordable.  This renown cartridge is more powerful than a .308 and ballistically rivals our 30/06 caliber.  This round is more than adequate for harvesting any Big Game animal in North America.  Rifle is extremely accurate up to 300 plus yards with open sights and is capable of accuracy out to 1000 yards with proper optics.

    Without a doubt the Mosin Nagant M91/30 provides by far the most bang for the buck of any rifle on the market today.  Here you have a rifle capable of taking any big game in North America at respectable yardage, fires affordable ammo, and can still be obtained for less that the price of a high end pellet rifle. No wonder we have sold thousands upon thousands over the past 25 years. 

    We were told by the importer that this group of rifles actually emptied out a particular storage arsenal and based on the way we received these rifle, we tend to believe it. We have never before seen the mixture of small and large crates and packing configurations that we received in this particular lot and the assortment of rifles that they contain are fascinating. 

    As for the overall condition of the rifles... Obviously we have not seen every rifle but from what we have seen these look really good overall.  Expect some light scratches , storage marks or finish wear, but overall, these are nice .
    Now we always tell people in regards to ordering surplus, that if you are expecting to get a brand new Belgium Browning condition wise when you order one of these then don't order one, chances are you will be disappointed. But we have seen a lot of surplus M91/30s, and by surplus M91/30 rifle standards... these are nice.

    But don't take my word for it..

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words and even though I have written close to that here I encourage you to look at our pictures and watch the accompanying video of us opening a few crates for inspection. The video reflects a random sampling of the actual rifles that will be packed and shipped and should be a good representation of what you can expect to receive. 


    Watch the Video Here

    We currently offer these rifles in 2 different choices. Round Receiver Izhevsk, Hex Receiver Izhevsk,  All will come with a bayonet, ammo pouch and field tools.  

    The Mosin Nagant M91/30 is a rifle that carries tremendous historical significance and the future ability to be abe to bring these fine rifles into the U.S. or even to get them out of their home country is uncertain...  Get yours today. 

    Concerning Tula Rifles.... If you have a Tula rifle currently on order, we feel confident that we will be able to fill the order. 

    Concerning Remaining Tulas.....  See Below

    We are still in the early stages of sorting and grading these rifles with the vast majority of crates ( as of 4/ 23 /15 ) still palletized and unopened. and we are boxing and shipping as we go. From our review of the first several cases , ( as seen in our video ) and based on  prior experience, we knew  that a certain percentage of these rifles would be Tula or Tula hex and as such advertised them for sale right out of the gate. Needless to say that the response to these 2 options was tremendous. Very quickly we had already sold through, or at least very close to, the total # of tulas that we expect to find in the shipment.

    As such, and to avoid  the risk of overselling, we had to pull the Tula option from the site. We are convinced based on our best estimates that we have already sold the vast majority of Tulas that will be available to us in this batch. However, if after completeing the project, there are any small quantities of Tulas remaining, we will re-post to the site. My advice would be to not hold out on the hopes of a Tula... if we do have any left down the road it will be a very small quantity, and the Ishevsk options are very nice, and at a much better price. 

    A note about Tula Mfg as opposed to Ishevsk Mfg on these rifles.  - If you are not familiar with the M91/30 rifles you may wonder what is all the fuss about when it comes to Tula versues Ishevsk. Frankly, I have been in the business for 25 years, have sold thousnds upon thousands of these rifles, and I still wonder why some would pay a premium for one over the other myself. The story is this. There were 2 differnent manufacturing Arsenals in Russia that produced these weapons, Tula, and Ishevsk. Both produced rifles to the exact same spec and if the receiver markings were not on the rifles I would defy anyone to ever be able to tell the difference between them. They look the same, perform the same, and the quality of workmanship is the same.

    The difference is in the receiver markings. The Tula rifles have a 5 pointed Russian star on top of the receiver, while the Ishevsk will either have no markings, which is rare, or stampings of a wreath with a Russian hammer and sickle emblem which will be the vast majoruty of them. Now markings on any of these rifles either Tula or Ishevsk vary from rifle to rifle based on wear and how deeply they were originally stamped. As such you could always get a Tula with shallow markings, or an Ishevsk with very crisp , clear markings or vice versa.  That is the only difference. 

    As such there is really no practical reason to prefer a Tula over an Ishevsk from a performance standpoint.

    Tula rifles do command a slightly higher premium on the market place  however for 2 primary reasons.

    1 - There were fewer rifles overall made by the Tula plant so the Star marking is somewhat less common

    and

    2 - People really seem to like that Star marking on the receiver.

    Now to me, a firearm is a tool and an implement intended to achieve a result. That result should be effectively and accurately launching a projectile at your intended target. If that is your goal then any of these fine rifles will certainly allow you to meet your objective.

    Hitting paper at 25-50-100 yards
    Review by Tyler on 5/17/15
    Quality
    This is an *update* to my recent order of the HEX Izhevsk Mosin Nagant I ordered from the latest batch of crates from Classic Firearms(2015). Took it out to the range the other day and it’s a shooter! I was shooting some Tula and Wolf (no mil surplus ammo) and I was getting decent groups at 25-50-100 yards but consistently high right. After some research I found out that is how the Soviets made them right out of the factory. The soldiers were taught to aim for the belt buckle. So overall, I was doing my part and the rifle was doing its part I am satisfied. After some more range time and training I should have it dialed in where I want it. The mountains were ringing with the pounding echoing sound of 54R! Go get one and see for yourself!

    Great example of a Mosin Nagant!
    Review by Dylan19606 on 6/23/15
    Quality
    Was very excited to get my first Mosin Nagant. When it finally arrived (only about 4 days to ship including a Sunday so really 3 days) and I did a lot of research online with price and they were definitely the cheapest. I paid the extra $10 for a number matching bayonet and extra $15 dollars for best cosmetically (out of 10 rifles.) This rifle was beautiful when it came in only very (and i do mean VERY) light spots in the wood finish by the left side by the trigger (wood was a bit lighter than the rest of the stock from wear, but who cares.) When I opened the bolt and held the gun with barrel in air, the bolt fell back like there was nothing holding it, that's really really good for a 70 year old gun that was drenched in sticky cosmoline for 40 of those years and anyone who has a Mosin will tell you that! the only noticeable problem that I seen was the firing pin looked a little bad (like it was not perfectly rounded at the tip it was more with multiple flat angles for lack of better terms) but all in all I am extremely satisfied which led me to do even more business with Classic Firearms. These are good guys that have great customer service. You should also buy your Mosin now, because prices have doubles in the past 2 years and also with the problems that the U.S. is having with Issa Issa and Russia in general, they may never import any more crates in the U.S. so get them now!

    Better Than Expected
    Review by Chief Joe on 6/21/15
    Quality
    Were we surprised when the FFL dealer opened the box. I've been around firearms since 1968 so I know a little about them. This is my first order from CF and all I can say is Wow, what a nice piece of history. I have to rate this Mosin Nagant at Very Good! For a 1943 rifle, it looks like it's been minimally used. The stock is in good shape with no dings, chips, cracks, etc. The bolt works smoothly and the overall appearance is better than expected. I got all the goodies with it, except a sling (I don't plan on carrying this monster anyway). And to make my pre-Father's Day gift even sweeter, the number on the bayonet matches the one on the rifle. Thank You CF!
    Mosin Nagant
    Review by Ricky on 6/20/15
    Quality
    This is my 1st purchase from Classic Firearms. A couple of my friends have purchased Mosin Nagants from other sources. They were blown away by the quality of mine from Classic Firearms. I did not opt for hand select, but I was most impressed with the one I received. Stock is near perfect, bluing id deep and rich, bolt is slick, clean almost like new. Rifling looks like it has been fired very little or never. After a good cleaning, makes my other MILSUP's look weary. Will be taking to the range next week and see how well it shoots. I gave 5 Stars because I was treated 1st rate as a customer, received with in the week I ordered, great packaging and was contacted thru emails at every step of the process. More than got what I paid for. Will order again from Classic Firearms. Thank you.
    Very fine quality on my recent Mosin purchase
    Review by David on 6/12/15
    Quality
    Yes, I notice the prices on Mosins are slipping upward. That's why I got in on another one while I can. I did pay the extra $15 for best of 10 and I believe was worth it. The machine work is very well finished, along with the cosmetics. The barrel is very nice, clean and shiny. Although I haven't had a chance to fire it yet, I'm sure it will hit just fine. My FFL person is a professional weapons expert, said after inspection it is a very fine rifle and I made a good choice. Not considering the age of this rifle, it appears to be near new. I hope to find time very soon to take it out to my range and see what it can do. If I'm allowed another review in brief I'll let you know.
    Outstanding

    Excellent firearms, easy to own and shoot.
    Review by Native Son on 6/4/15
    Quality
    Received a very nice 1942 Tula Round receiver M91/30 most all numbers matched with the exception of the mag door latch plate which was struck through and renumbered, no big deal.

    The bore was dark before cleaning but after running a 30 caliber bore snake through it with some Hoppes #9 (Best for corrosive ammo) I was shocked at the strong rifling and no counter bore.

    The wood work was in great shape with a few small surface scratches that can be buffed out easy and all metal work was free of rust and corrosion.

    Took it to the range after a good cleaning and a dab of oil, it shot on target and very accurate at 150 yards, I found that adding a small bit of wire insulation on the front sight pin allowed me to use the 1000 meter rear sight at 100 yards, with out the front sight pin extension the rear ladder sight couldn't get me closer than 125 yards.

    I did add a slip on limbsaver brand recoil pad over the metal butt stock plate for comfort, with out it my shoulder could only stand about 50 rounds before it started to interfere with my concentration (I had my shoulder rebuilt a year ago after an accident) and it can only take so much recoil, the pad cut the recoil by over 50% so now I can shoot my Mosin Nagant all day with no problems at all.

    This was my 2nd Mosin purchase, the first one (1939 Izzy Hex receiver ) had such a rough stock and upper hand guard (purchased at a local gun supplier) that I ordered a Monte Carlo type stock and it was just a drop in fit for the Mosin action and barrel, I also added a modern bi-pod and a sling along with a modern scope and scope mount BUT I wanted a nice example of an original Mosin so that was my reason for getting a 2nd one, so that I could leave one stock.

    There are many after market add ones for the Mosin's , tactical stocks, different scope mounts (even "No tap") that utilizes the dove tail hidden under the rear ladder sight and you can also get the scope mount that utilizes the base of the rear ladder sight by just removing the retaining pin, very cool upgrades.

    What is there NOT to like about a Mosin Nagant, well made, cheap military grade ammo and flexibility to experiment with modern components and just an attention getter at the range, all my shooting Buddies love my M91/30 and some are looking for their own at the time of this review.

    My next Mosin purchase will be an PU Sniper version with original scope and a down turned bolt handle.

    Why did I only give it 5 stars....because I didn't have an option of giving it 10 stars !!!

    I had done a ton of research on the M91/30 before I began to seek one out and I am happy I did, I was warned in the beginning of my Mosin Journey to "Be careful because they are addicting, and have a habit of multiplying in my gun safe", I am happy I didn't listen because , for the price of a high powered firearm that is so affordable who wouldn't want more than one.

    After polishing the internal working parts , adding a good scope and extending the front sight pin I am consistently hitting 2" groups at 100 yards and so far I have been able to get 10" groups at 500 yards with my set up, not bad for 70+ year old weapons.

    If you're sitting on the fence about acquiring your first Nagant wait no longer, you will be happy that you got yourself one but probably going to be just a little mad at yourself that you didn't a long time ago, well that is how I felt anyway.

    Do your research, get yourself one and treat yourself to a little slice of History and above all , always clean it as soon as possible after you get back from the range if you are using military surplus ammo as it is very corrosive, if you shoot after market / off the shelf ammo then it isn't such a big deal.

    I hope my review will inspire others to at least check them out, it will be a long gun purchase that has no equal in value for a whole lot of weapon for a little bit of coin.

    Thanks for taking the time to read my review, from a die hard Mosin fan.

    Awesome Guns with a great company
    Review by jesse on 6/2/15

    I am kinda new customer to Classic Firearms, But about 3 mos ago i purchased a 91/30, and a M44.

    What can i say, they are surplus, but my 91/30 looked as thou it had never been fired. the stock was kinda scruffed up but the metal looked brand new ehh it was it is, i'll redo the stock anyways or it will just be a great pig shooter.

    The M44 i bought was a really nice gun, had some minor wear on the blueing, the stock was in great condition.

    Overall i absolutely love both of them, they are shooters too.
    So to celebrate i bought i just pissed my wife off and bought another one. :)

    Just wish y'all would get more M44's in and the matching pistols, and while your at it how bout getting some M1 Garands in. I know im dreaming.

    Review by famas44 on 5/25/15

    I order C&R rifles from classic and I couldn't pass on these MN 91/30's. I have sold off a few 91/30's and wanted a nice example that wasn't a PU for my collection, and this one didn't disappoint. I didn't order in time for a hex or a Tula, but I didn't really need one, just wanted...and hoped...for a nice Izzy round receiver.

    I understand I took a roll of the dice because I didn't pick hand select or get a matching numbered bayonet, however, my rifle is very nice!! A pre-war stock with a 1939r barrel. Lots of stamps and proofs. The tang might be 1938 or 1939 / either way it is correct for the rifle. The barrel is bright and rifling is strong. It has been refurbished, but I could not have asked for a better example from classic.

    I would like to add my rifle was boxed very nicely (as it always is). I feel the problems other reviews might have mentions occurred from the shipper.
    Must be a mix up disappointed
    Review by Matt on 5/21/15
    Quality
    Very disappointed. Asked for a numbers matching rifle preferably Tula. Got an ishevsh round reciever With the invoice bayonet and rifle all different non matching numbers! They must have mixed up my rifle with someone else's. Honest mistake I'm sure but someone has a numbers matching rifle they didn't pay for. I'm sure classic will exchange it for a matching one. I've had great service from them in the past and don't doubt I'll get it now. Very disappointed though what a let down.

    Hi Matt - It is my understanding we are in the process of doing an exchange for you. Our apologies for the mix up! We always do our best, but every now and then, one will slip through the cracks. Thanks for your understanding and for allowing us to make it right. We appreciate you being a customer of Classic Firearms.

    I ordered this rifle as soon as the email came out about availability. Pins and needles I tell ya! 10 days later, I pick it up at my local FFL. He was as excited as I was when unpacking it at his shop. He was wishing he had ordered one. Thank you for a beautiful piece of history. I have put 40 rounds through it so far and is a great shooter. It is now mounted in the dining room so we can enjoy viewing it often. Thank you Classic Firearms.

    I am extremely satisfied with my purchase! I ordered an Izzy Hex receiver. Upon receipt not only was it a hex receiver but a 1927 with everything being matching numbers including the bayonet (which I did not ask for). The bore is beautiful and the stock has only some minor scratches/dings. I pulled it apart and had to clean very little. I have not fired it yet but I'm sure it will fire flawlessly. Cabelas had Mosins at $169 but the quality was atrocious compared to the product Classic is sending out.
    This was my 2nd purchase from Classic. My first being a Yugo M70 ABII underfolder. They are top notch when it comes to the product and service they provide. Quick shipping and quality product. If you are on the fence about purchasing from Classic, don't be. Jump and make your purchase. You won't be disappointed. I'm sure I will be making other purchases in the future.

    This gun is really good! All matching numbers (except bayonet). The stock is pretty bad, chips all over it. I don't mind it but the shipping took too long!

    I check the Classicfirearms web site pretty often and I couldn't believe it when I saw they were offering Mosin 91/30's again! I checked at just the right time because there were still some Tula's available so I jumped on it. Good thing too because the next day that option was gone. When I received it from my FFL about a week later it was no surprise I got what was advertised and what I ordered: A wartime Tula round receiver from 1942!
    The metal was about 90% original blue and the rest arsenal refinished with that black stuff but very nice none the less. The wood was perfect as far as no dents or scratches. The finish didn't matter because I was going to refinish the stock anyway but what great condition. The people at Classicfirearms.com have never disappointed me, what a great purchase!

    I received my Mosin M91/30 yesterday. I unboxed it after getting home and WOW this is a beautiful rifle. Talk about a piece of history. The stock is beautiful, the metal all in excellent shape. The TULA serial number for 1930 on this rifle is 31 and all numbers match including the bayonet. I am very happy with this being my first Mosin. Thank you Classic Arms for getting me the TULA Hex and hand selecting this rifle. We will be doing more business soon.
