Mosin Nagant Discussion

Mosin Nagant 91/30. Picked it up for $119 at Big 5.


I just shot it for the very first time yesterday. What a sweet shooting gun! It has this sound that I can't describe. It just sounds so hollow and mean... The fucker kicks back a lot too!

Mine was made during 1942 in Izhevsk, Russia.

Who else has a Mosin Nagant?

I've had mine for 6 years and it's still one of my favorites to shoot. They do have some kick to em but for the price you can't beat em.

I've had mine for about 3 years. not to bad to take out hog hunting either.

I saw them on sale at big 5 for like 98 bucks in sundays paper, should I pick one up?

Buddy of mine and his brother each got mosins under a similar deal, $100 apiece I think. They're glad they bought them, good guns. Gotta love classic rifles like that.

buy 10 arm your neighborhood in case of emergencies!

I had one with a short barrel, that thing kicked like a damned mule. The long is is pretty accurate. Heavy as hell but a straight shooter.

My buddy picked one up a few months ago but he hasn't shot it yet.

Mine makes me feel more like a man!

If you decide to put a scope on it please buy a nice mount for it and leave those $10 mounts alone. I made the decision to buy a scope and mount kit that did not exceed the price of the rifle itself and the scope fell off the rifle after 10 rounds. Needless to say my iron sights are back on the rifle.

on AIM surplus you can get a mosin nagant for 69.99 or 79.99 for hex receiver.
I am ordering 2. 1 of each.

i've shot them before, very accurate guns all things considered. . . the one's ive shot never kicked that bad compared to other rifles of the same caliper. i didnt realize how cheap they were until reading this, might have to make an investment if i can find one near me.

I've got the M44 short barreled one and I bought a standard length one from a friend for $50. Love 'em.

i got a 1933, got it at a gun show a few months ago! they had a crate of like 50 of them! i got the rifle, 5 stripper clips (which is the only good way to load that gun), 40 rounds, and an original scope (which is priced for $259.97 on Cheaperthandirt.com) for $300! well worth it! One of the funnest guns ive ever shot!

For some reason, my front site post is crooked. How do you guys adjust the front sight? Since it's crooked, I'm having a hard time getting it dead center at 50 yards...
