    Angel, that blonde 91/30 sure is sharp looking.

    I had a blonde Tula ex-snayperskaya that was in pretty rough shape that I let get away for a song when I first started collecting them that I wish I would have kept and refinished...but at the time I didn't even know how to spot an ex-sniper so I guess it was one of those "live and learn moments..."

    But I have always had a penchant for blondes, and not only my wife:p

    A long time ago I used to try and acquire old beat up low end .22s, mostly Winchester 190s and Marlins with the maple stocks "painted" walnut, and sand off all the stain and refinish them as blondes, and you'd be surprised how good they looked, some had REAL nice grains, and they sold for more than I had in them so I made out OK, not enough to retire, but there's enough of us out there liking blonde stocks I guess.

    If I find a nice 91/30 in blonde I just might have to buy it....

    You should have mine today. Yesterday I shot 100 rounds of 8X56R and 72 rounds of 7.62X54R. Now where did I put that aspircream?;)

    The only milsurp rifle I have ever shot that recoiled more than my current M95 or 95/34 Steyrs, was the FIRST Milsurp I ever owned, when I was 17, a "sporterized" M95 Steyr that was even LIGHTER, with a cut down REALLY wispy stock, and all the extraneous metal stuff gone, and didn't even have a buttplate!:eek:

    The 8x56RH in a Steyr Carbine is the milsurp recoil KING, by far....:p

    I'm impressed by the 100 rds...I'm down to about 150 rounds of the cheap Nazi ammo, and am a little afraid to shoot it much any more until I start reloading for it. The ammo seems to be drying up, I see it at shows for $8-$10/10 now, not the $2.25/10 like it was for years.



    Good thing the brass is so easy to make, you use 7.62x54R brass and a $12 Lee case forming die....I just need to buy a .329 cast bullet mold and I'm there!;)

    Good deal, I have a M90/31 and a M38 and a M44

    Love them all. Just don't like the Milsurp corosive ammo . . . LOL

    Mine don't kick like bitches though, more like a pissed off mule

    Ditto here Bottle. My son (14) and I have 91/30s and have a great time with them. Glad to know you and your dad are out there putting rounds down range.

    About two weeks ago I forget to take the recoil pad for the MN 44 (keep it on the SKS to lengthen the stock).
    The day after shooting the 40 rounds or so, I had no bruise, and I'm not at all a muscular guy. My son is much better built-he's twenty.

    I had no bruises at all from the 44, but had some last fall when shooting the 'naked' M-1 carbine. Strange?

    I saw one the other day at the gun store, and it looked like what you are describing here.....no arrow inside the star. I also saw the ones with the hammer and sickle stamp.
