Sold my last 3 MN 91/30s today. Went to SOG and was shocked to see that they are up to 135.99 per rifle PLUS shipping. Anybody know any other sites where they are cheaper?

Classic had a crate sale of them a few weeks back at $120 per rifle plus shipping and sold out in just a few days. Century has T53 u-fix ems for $500 per five but those can be a crap shoot at best. They do show standard 91/30's in their C&R section for $109.87 for very good condition, $129 for excellent. Those are about the only ones I find out there at the moment, might need to round up some buyers to hit Dunhams and Fleet Farm in order to restock you!

Quick glance on Gunbroker shows them going for upwards of $170 for a plain jane 91/30.

Its sad but I guess the MN rifles are soon going to be $200 rifles instead of the good old days when they were $99 all day long.

Dammit all to hell!

Back when, I thought I overpaid a little for a really nice M44, but it was really nice and I got it from a mom and pop shop who had cherry-picked it for me. It's starting to look like a better and better deal.


I hear ya tom, hell, a M44 in nice condition is going for upwards of 250 these days, and a M38 in nice condition is going around 350+! Wasnt but 6 or so years ago and you could get both for 80 bucks all day long.

T53's are the current market but they're a crapshoot as to bore condition and a typical stock looks like it was drug down the trail behind a water buffalo that had massive diarrhea.

I built my last 91/30 from parts, bought a 37 barreled receiver off Gunbroker for $28 and used mostly T53 parts initially but picking up a piece here and there am working on getting it all Russian again.

Just bought a 53 Hungarian M44 barreled receiver off a gent on a Mosin forum that I am one of the sponsors on, $65 shipped, I'll have $203 in it when finished.

But Mo, the ones that stay there ask specifically for their brand of lubricant first. They enjoy the rear entry it seems; just consider what the midpoint bay's nickname is. :whistle:

I'm glad that I got my 2 at $88 each. Just ordered 880 rounds of 54R.

I ordered 200 from Chestnut Ridge Supply, they seem to have the best prices at the moment for "less than a spam can" orders. I see AIM has Bulgarian back in stock for $79.95 a 440 round can.

Just looked on Century's site and they appear to have Lam stocked for $129 in Ex cond. :dunno: But shipping might get you from there.

Actually shipping is nice at century. any order over 500 (pistols not included) gets free shipping for dealers. makes for a good deal if they have what you need in stock.

Classic has M38's now, "manufactured" by Molot. Not "cheap" though...
