    my friend picked up a mosin 91/30 from the gun store friday. it looks to be in excellent condition. it's stamped 1932. we went to the range yesterday and busted a few. that thing is a blast to shoot, espcially for the price. we both suck at shooting rifles, so at 100 yards and iron sites, we were just lucky to be hitting the paper. question though: what's the best way to clean these beasts? we think the ammo we were shooting was corrosive. we used the hot soapy water method, but that sure was a pain the ass. then we ran some copper solvent stuff through the barrel and topped it off with a little oil.

    cliffs: new mosin, fun as hell to shoot, but i dont know the best way to clean it.

    damn your range has better grass than a golf course.

    Nice looking rifle.

    as for cleaning you can use windex instead of soap and water for the corrosive.

    if you don't mind me asking what did your friend pay for it, I'm thinking about picking one up, but most people I know have the carbines.

    it was $128 out the door. i've heard you can find them cheaper, but we thought the price was fair. this is the longer barrel version. the m44 was 20 bucks cheaper at the same gun store.

    I got mine for $95 shipped from InterOrdnance. Thats with the optional $20 hand select bore too.
    They had some sale on them a month or two ago where they were like $55 or something. That means it would be like maybe $70 shipped for a rearsenaled WWII one. Shoulda jumped on that and bought a couple :hsd:
