Sup buying a mosin today
What kind should I get? Going for a 91/30 or some kind of carbine

Whichever one looks like it's in good condition. If buying online, I'd go for a 91/30 because it's cheaper and if you want a lighter carbine, there are far superior choices

Save your money and buy a k31 instead.

I love that gun.

Why not get both? I sure did. The K31 even came with the old owner's ID card.

However looking him up didn't yield anything, sadly. Would've been really neat to try talking to the guy.

$320ish when all is said and done, and they are very nice rifles. But as with most firearms, the majority of the cost is with ammo. It's going for around $0.70 a round right now for the standard, very high quality ammo, but that will only rise as surplus GP11 runs out. For my money, I prefer a good Czech Mauser, but both are good milsurp

Well fug. My income's not much of anything and I recently bought a crate of mosin food and clips for a sniper I bought just before that so I don't know how much I can spend, but I'll have to look into getting more.

On another note, has anyone dealt with RCArms? Bought some stuff from them recently but have yet to hear of the order being sent or anything. All I know is I got emailed the receipt.

Gah fuck. They were Tikka and Izhevsk clips. Welp, looks like I spent a bunch of clams when I could've used them for more ammo.

At least I got a sling coming. That works, right?

Also ordered a can opener. I was hoping my order of ammo came with one since I've heard some people getting them but, nope.

And does a bayonet fit a sniper correctly? I feel like getting one simply to get all the pieces but I think it's pretty redundant to get a bayonet for a sniper.

I hate to break this to you, but that's what people thought in the 1960s too. Then the surplus dried up and reality set in.

It will, they just took normal 91/30s that shot pretty accurate and stuck scopes on them during the war. The repros these days are made the same way.

GP11 is still manufactured, just in small numbers. Mostly for competition and sport shooters. It won't go away, it will just be $1.50 per shot

It's Finnish, either an ex-Russian M1891, a Finnish-built M1891, or maybe an M1891/24.

You have a Finnish-assembled M1891 with a barrel made in Belgium. Though it is dated 1942, these "B-Barrel" rifles were not built until after the Second World War was over.

That's the barrel, Anon. The receiver date is stamped on the underside of the receiver tang, at the rear.

I also just noticed what looks like 4 tally marks on the side of the stock, I already knew about the initials scratched into the side. I've always liked it but never fired this gun in particular. I don't even know if it would fire, but I'm interested to try it soon.

There might also be an arsenal symbol indicating where the receiver was originally manufactured.
