    3. My 91/30 It's a tack driver and I killed a huge Eurasian Boar with it this last year . Its quite a shooter .
    None are real collectable but they all have seen service and all have their own story . I do love the huns as well . They have many stamps and proofs , and have a fit and finish of their own .

    What a great collection, thanks for the photo. I like my Mosins, M-44 for the muzzle flash, and my 91/30 beats all my other rifles for accuracy!

    Yeah , I know.... I refurbished another 91/30 and it was a beuty . I felt guilty for "ruining" it so I got rid of it . I was planning on filling out the long guns with a hex reciever and a SA . On the short end , I hope to turn my "spare Hun and Pol" into a M38 and a T53 . Then I will probably tone it down for a while .

    Hey that is a great collection - keep up the good work :D

    I keep thinking that I must get a Mossin as you see few over here from time to time and not too expensive - there seem to be a few virtually new that they call Armoury Refurbished and seem to be as original so I shall keep my eyes open cheers

    as far as mosins, if you have more than two, you have too many. but they are easier on your pocket.
