    My rifle with it's mismatched bolt will not accept the stripper clips. The unique trigger set up will not allow the bolt to come back far enough to clear the stripper notches in the receiver; thus it is a single loader and a cartridge has to be placed with the rim in front of the bolt face in order to feed. Does yours work the same way?

    Thanks, Frank
    I have tinkered with the rifle just a little bit, seems the bolt is as you described. Wonder why they made them this way?

    Pahtu.

    I wonder if there were special bolts for these; does anyone have a rifle with a matching numbered bolt? The few I have seen have mismatched bolts (regular N/M bolts). If a matching bolt allows use of the magazine, we may be able to modify normal bolts to work. Or maybe they were designed to be single shot rifles for target shooting?

    I'll be posting mine soon. Interestingly it has the floorplate from this one on it:

    Frank, Steve K posted about his a while ago. He has your buttplate on his rifle, AC5008 on rifle AC5055.

    That is good to know - Gut feeling tells me there are very few of these in the good ole USA - You never see the Romanian nor Albanian rifles posted and the Hungarian 91-30s get posted, but rarely see them as well.

    Pahtu.

    I think there are less than 100 total worldwide based on observer serials. Maybe 60. I have examined 1 other than my own. Both are import marked as "CAI Russian 91-30s" in small barrel stamping s. Bore condition on both were not good and may have been used heavily for target practice. Mine is a PU sniper copy as came that way with a low price due to bore.

    Here is my Hungarian 91/30 non sniper which are supposed to be even more rare here in the States. Tanks to a friend I also have the full assortment of accessories.

    Steve K's butt plate AC5008 is interesting as my Romanian AC5008 has a matching AC5008 butt plate with no evidence of force matching or renumbering. Also has the C in a triangle mark.
