FWIW none of my 91/30s are the same length. It drives me nuts.

Not a surprise. Due to the age of a lot of these rifles, and the lack of care given them by many of the original Soviet soldiers, the rifles had to be re-crowned during the arsenal refurbishment process. Don't sweat it. What matters is whether or not your M-N is a good shooter. Is it?

Well, whatcha waitin' for? Get out and inaugurate that baby! Oh, and make sure you've got a recoil pad when you do. They do kick.

Are you measuring the barrel itself or standing two rifles up side by side? Could be the stock.

if you compare a former dragoon to a regular 91/30 the dragoon barrel will be slightly shorter like a 1/4 to possible 1/2 inch

i have 4 91/30s and they're all different sizes. Ivan just didn't have as strict production standards as Jerry did apparently.

No, they were made in standard sizes at close tolerance. It two are different there is a reason.

Nah, a 91/30 doesn't kick much at all. The shorter Mosins kick 2 or 3 times what the 91 lengths do.

All you need to enjoy your 91/30 is a spam can of surplus and some far away gongs and close up reactive targets :D.
