    You guys have talked me into buying one of these. Where is the best place to pick up a decent one?

    I bought this Fin capture '36 Tula 91/30 over 25yr ago from a cataloge company out of Manitoba Canada , long before the internet . ( $48 delivered to southern Ontario )
    I don't hunt with it but it's staying in my collection.
    Much of the shellac was worn off so I cleaned down the stocks with Methyl Hydrate and handrubbed in a thin coat of amber colored shellac.

    I gave 2 stock M38's to my sons but decided to make a 91/30 custom for me...

    Richards Microfit stock, floated barrel, bedded action, and my perversion of a turn down bolt, along with my own version of a ring pull safety that's been ripped off on several sites (all using a cheap silver soldered u-bolt) and an ATI scope mount.

    It shoots 1" groups at 250 yds only because I wiggle too much....

    Hi folks! Here is my M91/30. The Finns captured and reworked it. It's a nice kid, for me...;)
