    smile 91/59 Thanks Honey!!

    I love my wife! Our anniversary is coming up and she got me this sweet Mosin-Nagant 91/59 carbine as an early present.

    It's a 1943 Izhevsk in a m-44 stock. 99% bluing All matching numbers and a mirror bore to boot. The stock is super smooth and very stout. Seems beefier that my Hungarian M-44 was. Only marking on the stock is a "Star" cartouche. Did I mention I Love my WIFE!!!

    Absolutely gorgeous rifle. That does not look like a birch stock to me. Grain looks too pronounced.

    +1. That's why it "seems beefier"

    Great wives are a gift!

    I just got a nice little carbine for my wife. Not a Mosin, but a Marlin.

    Thanks bao. I believe that's a good choice to hang on to it. Apparently they are excellent shooters and becoming a bit scarce these days. Other that this one I've seen only one or two more in person over the past 10 or so years in my neck of the woods. But then again I haven't been seeking out carbines as my collection has focused on Finnish rifles.
