Mosin Nagant M91/30


Recommended Posts

Reading about quiet shooting firearms that don't require a suppressor.

I've read a few posts here on the SALOON about the Mosin Nagant M91/30; however, is it truly as quiet as they purport?

I have one that I bought really cheap 10-15 yrs ago. I shot it once about 5 rounds and I don't remember it being very loud! 

 

7.62 X54, It's a powerful round!!

Some of that surplus 7.62×54 machine gun ammo sure barks... and your shoulder will likely bark for a while after shooting it, too.  :huh:

 

Like the opening line in an article at Wideners dot Com sez...  "Mosin-Nagants are often homely, always loud and not generally known to be precision rifles."  :rolleyes:

 

It's a good read, by the way.  :)

Not quiet at all.

UB,

     Thank's for the video.

     I believe with all the responses to my post, this particular rifle will not be on my list of purchases, at least for the foreseeable future.

It’s a cool rifle. And accurate enough to snipe a whole lot of Germans during the war.  But certainly not any quieter than any 30 cal military piece. I would put the accuracy below an SMLE and above a Garand.

I had two of them and sold them both.  I regret doing so very much.  If the price is good (these days, anyway), I’d like to have one.

Where did you see it for sale?

I shot one in CMP matches years ago.

Same bang as the M1A and Garand.

I had a Finish version that shot nice groups but the lowest sight setting was for 300 paces (not yards).

The prices are in the $250-400 range. A long way from the $79 specials of 8 or 10 years ago. :(

I paid $100 and I got mine at least 10 yrs ago, nice to know  they have  more than doubled in price!

I love my M44 Carbine, I first fired it with some new Wolff ammo and it was Loud and Smacked you pretty hard. I tried some of the surplus Czech ammo i bought and it wasn't quite as violent and loud.

They are butt ugly, loud and who ever called them "not generally known to be precision rifles" did not know what the hell they were talking about.

WOW , I am pretty sure I paid a lot less , when I got my first one , it was a Finnish M38 , think I got it and 100 rds of ammo for $65  

sure wish that had not gone away , as I recall it was a very good shooter , was a bit loud being a carbine 

around here they are going for around $400 + tax 

BUT I can recall getting SKSs for $40 ea + spam can of ammo , if ya got a case (5 rifles) packed in grease

The Finns are the most expensive now. I’ve seen them for $600+. There used to be a seller in Florida who specialized in them.

well I am still trying to gather back , some of the stuff , that went away with the EX 

 

  at one time I had some real nice mil rifles , thinking I would like  to get a hex reciver Finn , pretty hard to find and most likely in the $600 + range 

 

  too many guns and NOT enough $$$
