usually go for around $99 to $200 for the M44's and 91/30's. The numbers matching sniper variants go for around $300 and up, these guns are not real valuable now but I see them gaining value over time, thats why I own four of them.

Ask more questions (be a pain in the ass) get a better rifle, thats my motto! Even though most of my rifles won't be shot much, I do like them in working order, deep refiling, good bore........... I don't buy the ones that have had the barrels shot out of them.....$88.95....LOL!

I have 3 91/30's. 1 has an octagon reciever, dated 1924. I have been told it is a "Tula" and is worth big $$. Can you give me the short story on the difference in years and/or the Tula thing?When I can find a camera and figure out how to post photos I'll put it in a thread.

Tula was a smaller manufacturing plant than Izhevsk so it put out fewer rifles. They are a little harder to find, but still plenty around. I wouldn't say that any 91/30 is worth big $$ unless it was an original sniper with bent bolt and original glass (even those can be found at decent prices) or there is special history that can be linked to that particular rifle with documentation. If its just a regular 1924 hex receiver tula, its probably not worth much more, if any, than the others. Sorry.

Reaper, my sniper

baby just arrived yesterday. I gave $300 for it which I thought was a fair price, I expected more. It is a 1942 round receiver with the Tula stamp and #'s matching. http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/my-nagant-9130-sniper-variant

Reaps comment about brother hamp liking to pay more for them.. to cool...Sorry Hamp, you know i love ya, but i had thought the same thing a couple of times then saw the furniture on them was mint.. You are collecting prime examples.. What tickles me is the "battle field pick up" thing... Talk about a bunch of BS.. nope those all went back to units who then took them away from the troops.. all the nicks just come from being thrown in armory storage boxes.

Just remember

one man's junk is another man's treasure....LOL! Actually, the rifle I paid the least for was the one that was in the best condition, the one greg is referring to.

You goddamned Mosin owners are some of the most confrontational people in the shooting world. God help the poor soul who compares the 7.62 x 54R to the .308, .30-06. .270, .50 BMG, 20mm, or Nike missile and even thinks about speaking out about maybe, just maybe, there might be a slight glimmer of a chance in hell that the Mosin's round might not be superior to all others that are on this Earth. You Mosin people are mean.

I'm gonna back away slowly now...
