I just bought my first Mosin and AR 10 days ago and they came out of jail today!

Even though the AR cost 9 or 10 times as much as that Mosin, I am more excited about that Mosin! I cannot stop picking it up and checking it out. I love historical items and the idea of thinking this rifle may have been used during WW2 thrills me. The 10 day waiting killed me! All I did the last 10 days was try and research this gun and buy ammo (note the spam can. 80 bucks at the Sacramento gun show this past weekend).

I know it's a Tula made 91/30, but can anyone else tell me anything else about this rifle? Btw, the bore rifling is in such perfect condition. No pits anywhere! And no counter-boring! All the serials match, but I've heard that's probably due to re-working the rifle over the years.

Dang! ARs are small... (I notice that every time I hold one or compare one to a "real rifle") :D

Anyways... Cool AR, and the Mosin is a beaut. Enjoy them... you lucky son of a...

Sorry... you can only keep one. I'll arrange a pickup time for your Mosin.

Oh... and that's a hell of a score on that spamcan. A guy up here in Yuba City was selling them for $150 at the gunshow. Friggin' highway robbery!

Was that for a single can or for the dual cans in a single wooden crate?
