    My local Cabela's has a pile of 91/30s on sale for $99 this weekend. I've always been curious about them, and at this price I know I won't regret it. Anyone use one to hunt? I assume 7.62x54 could take deer?

    I like mine. I got the original sling and ammo carrier for it and it looks pretty cool. The round is close to the same power as a 308 and will take deer just fine as long as your ammo is the right type. It is really tough to beat that rifle at that price.

    I got mine for $70 from AIM a while back. I tweaked it quite a bit and ended up giving it to a nephew of mine as his first rifle. He loves it too. It shot real good with a scout scope and Silver Bear ammo.

    Found a pretty nice one. It's got about 5 gallons of cosmoline in and on it but when it's cleaned off I can't wait to shoot it.

    Looks like a nice one indeed! I may pick up another someday but it'll either be an M44 or I'll have the barrel cut way down. I was never a fan of the length on the 91/30.

    when they first came out on the markey everyone thought they were junk, now a major following. I have the 44 and it shoots great

    I had one for awhile and I really regret selling it. I used to use trees for target practice as the massive 7.62x54R cartridge would literally blow limbs in half. More than enough firepower for most North American game. My only suggestion is: This is no sport rifle, treat it like a dirty old Russian whore when you jack rounds in and out. Maybe it was just my rifle or the ammunition, but the more gentle I was with her, the more malfunctions I had. When I abused the bolt, it operated smoothly, efficiently, and accurately every time. However, bruised palms were par for the course on a long day of shooting.

    I am just a little bit jelous, I'm on a few waiting lists for one of these. Gratz on the find.

    There is a disease you catch shortly after you buy your first 91/30, it is called Mosinitis and it is not curable but can be held in remission. To hold this disease in remission you have to buy a Mosin Nagant, any model, about every three months or so. I presently only have two, a 1930 and a 1937 Tula hex receiver, and feel a relapse coming on.
