Apparently I snagged a Balkan import.

I forgot to mention that the M91 is a 1916 Tula PETER THE GREAT

Scrubbed imperial eagles, sometimes the barrel shank is partially scrubbed. Most are rough, PNS's doesn't look too bad.

The going rate is $150-$200, let's just say he paid less than that;)

I got it for 138.99 shipped. Poor salesman still has a '42 Izzy M91/30 on there for 199.99...

I will post some pics of it tomorrow.

This one is actually quite nice. The bolt on it is butter smooth, the sights aren't fugly, etc.

The rear sight has a wedge under the leaf, there is probably a shim under the rear barrel band and the finish on it is a weird shellac type. I am going to look for pine cone stamps next.

Oh yeah, I get around more now that I am pretty much banned from most of the cool topics on this forum.

Dang sounds like a nice piece at a great price. Sometimes you get lucky on Gunborker.

That's if I can even get to a range. Time is a little bit crunched right now.

You called?


(Sounds like a nice rifle, though - I saw your thread over there before I saw this one here.)

I've seen the same type of thick shellac on Balkan import M91s, too. Besides the vigorously scrubbed eagles, other aspects include Bulgarian property stamps (circled 'B'), Bulgarian 'pinecone' stamps and non-Finn wire sling hangers. Occasionally one will get lucky and also have a Serbian 'C' stamp on the barrel shank.

OK, so it is cloudy out and my camera is MIA for the moment so I just utilized my phone camera.

I also got my Type 1 bayonet today so that is pretty sweet.

How does the barrel look? Muzzle pass the bullet test? Congrats on the new rifle :)

Barrel looks really good. Dark bore but sharp grooves and no counterbore.

Bullet test result
