On the Rack

At Gunnies in Orem, a Mosin-Nagant Model 91/30 retired PU sniper. Tula, 1943. Clear markings on receiver including prominent "C h" stamp. Matching numbers, bottom metal has matching number stamped next to lined - out original number.

Overall condition is fair. Typical wartime stock. Metal to wood fit is fair. PU mount holes in receiver have been filled with studs and welded. Crappy bluing job here - metal shows discoloration from heat. Bore is dark with well defined lands and grooves. Trigger and sear show very little wear, no hammering. The muzzle was recrowned during the rearsenal process, but some evidence of a sniper counterbore still shows.

At $84.00 it is probably worth a look. Comes with all the typical CAI goodies - sling, bayonet, oiler/solvent can, cleaning kit, one double ammo pouch, and combo tool.
