As I alluded to Saturday, I picked up a new to me firearm.

Yep, I’m now the proud owner of a Mosin Nagant 91/30 .
I picked it up for a local gun store – Iron Mine Guns who will be the subject of another blog post later for a princely sum of $109. Normally $119 but he took pity on my wallet and cut me a break.
I have much to learn but I do know it was made in the Tula plant in 1943.

There are many marks that I have no idea what they mean, yet.

Picked up 3 boxes of ammunition for it but it will be a while before I shoot it. Getting the surface layers of cosmoline off took about an hour. I still have to completely disassemble it and scrub it down.
It was a day late but I think it Definitely Qualifies for Buy A Gun Day; don’t you?
Now if I can just find someone knowledgeable about Mosins to help me out.
Please join the discussion.
