and I'm in love. A little different flavor than the black and silver guns I've got laying around... it's a 1943 Izhevsk M91/30, all matching serials and goodies except for a sling or carrying pouch. Bore slugs at .312-.313... Probably run some bulk Prvi .311" pills through her once I get set up for rifle reloading.

Congratulations! Everyone should have at least one, IMO.

Everyone should have at least one and a few spam cans hanging around.

I reckon I need another. And more ammo...

Taylor, where did you pick it up? I'm in the Wichita area and have been looking here and there for one. Seems like the ones that I can find for $100-150 are in rough shape. And what does ammo run for these nowadays?

Well took her to the range this afternoon after a rainout at the jobsite... this thing really does kick like a mule. Once I got used to the irons and knew where to hold it, I hit a 4" grouping in 3 shots at 50 yards. Doesn't sound like much, but for a guy used to 12x optics and 3.5# crisp trigger pulls, I'll mark it down as a victory in my book.

Doubt I'll be reloading for it as I probably won't shoot it often, but it's a cool piece of history to me. Of all the wars, World War II is my favorite to study, followed very closely by the Civil War... I think I'll just stick to WWII - doubt I'll be getting a smoothbore musket any time soon ;)

If you can get a C&R license. They are good for three(?) years and will pay for itself when you can buy them online and have 'em shipped right to your door. I reckon that I've saved at least $150 on transfer fees since I got mine, and I haven't the income to buy as much as I'd like.

I bought a 1938 91/30 from aim surplus on my c&r for $140 shipped and it looks immaculate... bore is amazing. The kick isn't that bad... a type53 is worse.
