    I bought a Mosin 91/30 off gunbroker for ~$185 as it had a sweet stock and I really liked the gun.

    Anyways, I finally took it to our outdoor range to give it a whirl. First shot was loud as hell, kicked up tons of dirt from behind the target, and I couldn't even eject the casing. The fucking gun jammed. When inspecting the gun I also realized that the gun is so powerful it cracked my stock. :ugh:

    Yeah, now I have a Mosin with an ugly ass cracked stock. :(

    I don't know if he still posts here anymore but SSSNAKE (or something like that) had a pretty unique mosin. I'm hoping someone had saved the pics, it was pretty...interesting.

    for the rifle jamming, are you sure it wasn't just a sticky bolt? remember, this is a russian gun, you CAN'T try and baby the action like with a modern rifle.

    Well, to get the action opened up I had to kick the bolt handle to open it up. It wasn't nearly as clean as my friends M44.

    At any rate, the guy is sending me a brand new stock. It looks pretty good too. :coolugh:

    Someone send that man a case of beer for being a stand up gentleman.
    Most sellers would just tell you to eat it these days, and then never respond again.

    sounds like you still need to find which kind of ammo it likes best. I know my 91/30 love the lacquer coated 50s hungarian stuff, but hates the copper wash.

    Well, before I had to buy the stuff that was $15 for 20 rounds. That was what they'd allow at the indoor range (for my friends M44). The stuff I fired at the outdoor range was $2.50 for 20 rounds and was the Grizzly ammo. :eek3:

    Here are other emails he has sent.





    He is a great guy. When I get my M44s I am going through him again. He does great work and obviously has awesome customer service.

    Sounds like a good guy to do business with. I'm perfectly happy with my $70 Mosin and its 65 year old uncracked stock though.

    That's Vermincelli's rifle, Sssnake made it. Sssnake bought a house and sold most all of his toys, so he doesn't post much anymore. Ask Verm to post em up.

    I just remembered I saw that Verm sold it. I saw it on ARFCOM for sale last year I think. He doesn't post here much either I don't think.
