What do I need to know about the Mosin-Nagant?
And what is the differance between the:
Model 1938
Model 1944
Model 91/30

And what's a (Tula) Round Receiver?

And are these prices decent for what they're selling: http://www.aztecguns.com/Pricing.htm

You can also have an Enfield modified to shoot 7.62x54R ammo. All that's needed is a re-chamber job and a slight mod to the magazine.

Actually, there is NO functional difference between the MKIII an MK 4. The differences are in sights, bayonet type and cosmetic design. The MK 4 was a war time rifle and left off the more complicated (and expensive) sight and switched to a cheaper bayonet design. It's still a fine rifle. I just prefer the old MKIII design. The bolt action on either of these is probably the fastest that was ever made. The German's in 1915 thought the British were using machine guns rather than MKIII's, because the rate of fire was so rapid.

Maybe I can help with the Nagants. The M1938 and M1944 have the shorter barrel and are virtually identical except the 44 is fitted with a bayonet. The 91/30 is the rifle with a long barrel. All are cal 7.65x54R. The earliest 91/30's were made with a hex receiver. Later ones (Tula) had the round receiver.

Here are some links that will tell you more than you ever wanted to know about the Mosin Nagant. This is one of my favorite sites.

From everything I've heard, Aztec has some of the best rifles around.

Oh, I have a 1938 Mosin Nagant and like it a great deal.

Enjoy!

RIKA :)

One clarification, the M38 not only does not have the permanently afixed bayo like the M44, but it also cannot be fitted with one. They never came with them. If you want a handy, cheap, powerful hunting rifle, the M38 is a great choice. For long rifle enthusiasts (like me) the M91/30 is a great rifle and has the removable bayo. If you want one that's good for hunting and one in full military trim, get a 91/30 and an M38.

Another thing to look for are 91/59s which are basically 91/30s cut down to M38 length. Though these are fairly rare and will cost a lot more than $60.

I own an M38, M44 and M91/30, they're all great. The bargain is even better considering most place you buy from pack it with a sling, oil can, front sight tool and ammo pouch, M91/30s also have the bayonet.

These aren't minute-of-angle rifles, but they're great fun to shoot and do the deed hunting.

Magnum 88C, How do you use that front sight tool? I got one with my M-44, but can't get the hang of using it. Thanks.

Sorry Terry, I phucked up. It's a firing pin protrusion gauge/screwdriver combo.
To use it, remove the bolt, and then put the bolt in it's fired configuration (rotate it 90 degrees re: the rear of the bolt), the firing pin will protrude. The two slots in the middle of 4 slots on the side of the tool are the min/max gauges. The firing pin should protrude enough that the gauge body won't sit flat against the bolt face with the min gauge, but not so much as to prevent the max gauge from sitting flat against the bolt. Hope that wasn't too convoluted, I think if you give it a try, you'll see what I mean better than reading this.

The front sights are drift adjusted (had to ask about these tools myself).

it's a low cost, durable bolt action, suitable for caching or as a truck gun for poaching big game. It's half the cost of an sks, and about 1/4 as desirable,if you have to fight with it, or even 'just' stop a rabid animal,run off a dog pack, etc.

Magnum 88C, I understand the drift adjustable front sight on the M-44, but that firing pin gauge has a loop that fit's EXACTLY around the front sight. It has to have a purpose, I just can't figure out exactly how to work it. Oh and thanks, .223 for your input on poaching and running off dog packs. I don't do either. When's the last time you fired a Mosin-Nagant?

Honestly Terry, I don't know, the people I asked didn't know either.
