:thanks: I will get my "cut" from the dealers......................msredneck said:...................Hey Sub, I got you to blame for my next 2 rifle purchases...M44 and a Yugo 8mm
J&G sales has M91/30 rifles that have VG+ to exc bores. I got lucky and got a rifle from SOG with an unfired barrel. It shoots great. I will do an adjustable trigger pull job on it and I might shoot it in a Vintage Military Rifle Match this year.captain-03 said:I don't yet own a Mosin Nagant ... need one though!! Anyone with any leads on some good deals??
Would like to know that also -- also, why are they the better ones to have?Hammer said:Are the Hex receivers the better one to have?
What most people do not know is, the USGI .30 m2 (.30-06) round has a 150gr bullet at 2600 fps. The 7.62x54r 147 gr bullet travels 2900 fps. I fired at a 1" piece of cold rolled plate with a SVT 40 Tokarev in 7.62x54r and it penetrated at 200 yards. It was hanging in a tree on a wire. SVT40 stands for Samozardinia Vintovka Tokareva 1940. or Semiautomatic Rifle Tokarev Model 1940. The Russian Moisin Rifles are all very powerful.slabsides45 said:Call me a Phillistine, but if I ever buy one of these, the first money I'll spend on it will be getting a Limbsaver pad (and maybe a recoil can, too) installed. I hear these things kick like a rented mule! Anyone own one that they've put a good recoil pad on? If so, what was the improvement?
