    Default 1934 Tula at gun shop

    I went in a local gun shop and was looking for an SKS but I spotted this Mosin Nagant. I believe it is a post war refurbishment. They want 279 for it. I took some quick pics of the rifle. So any comments would be appreciated.

    Looks like a normal refurb, nothing highly rare, but tulas are nice, and its a hex too. Sadly $280 is about market or a tad high these days of 230-300 refurbs...

    Thanks for the info. I figured it might be a common refurb.

    I think the stock is an original WW2 stock. It just has the Russian shellac finish. I'm I correct on that?

    Seems like a standard m91-30 refurb. Brass caps are nice. Price is a just a twitch high, but still in the ball park of todays pricing.

    This was the most interesting conversation I was ever not a part of and I look forward to the next conversation on the topic.

    lee, that is a NICE rifle. It's a nice piece of history. The rifle has a nice prewar stock. It was refurbed in Riga, Latvia sometime after the war. Of course Riga, Latvia isn't too far from St. Petersburg/Leningrad. So it's not that much of a stretch to think it might have taken part in the battles around there. They stopped making Hex Tulas in 1936. The price isn't that bad, either.

    You won't take a whipping at that price.

    What is the marking that tells you that it was refurbished in Riga, Latvia?

    Is the hand guard prewar also?

    I might ask if he is firm on his price.

    If I get it, then I'll have 3 Mosin Nagants!;-)

    I have a '34 Tula. It is also a refurb, and some of the parts were pretty heavily scrubbed, but it shows as new. The stock is plywood-all corners are sharp and it doesn't have a mark on it. Purty rifle.

    Lee, in your fourth picture on the barrel above the serial number is a square box. That box is a refurb stamp placed there by GRAU Arsenal # 7 Riga. (ref) page 105, "M91/30 Rifles and M38/M44 Carbines in 1941 - 1945" by Alexander Yuschenko world famous author and our very own poster Ratnik.

    Thank you for telling me about the arsenal stamp. I guess I should look into getting that book. Does that book reference Finnish captured M91/30 rifles also?

    No, just Russian production during the war. Alex the author is a member here, he is in the Ukraine.

    Oh ok. I was just wondering. My other two M91/30 are 1928 Izhevsk which is a refurb also and my first Mosin Nagant I got is a Finnish captured 1932 Izhevsh which is all original from the Fins.
    Thanks, Lee


    Looking for the matching stock s/n 5199 q for my S/42 1937 K98. It sold on ebay in 2014. I would like to buy or trade for it. Please keep an eye out for it.
