    Remington 91/30

    Saw a rifle tonight that I swore was a 91/30 built by Remington. Had a Nagant action and stock. Auctioneer kept telling me that it was a .30 Remington. I said it was a 7.62 by 54.

    Is the buyer going to have a big surprise went he tries to chamber a 30? Went for $160.00

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    Remington did indeed make M91 (not 91/30s) rifles on a contract for the Russian government. New Westinghouse made some as well. However, due to the Russian revolution, many of the rifles never made it to Russiaicon, and were subsequently bought by the US Military to keep the firms from going under from all the lost money from the M91 contract. Some of them were converted to .30-06, but those go for A LOT more than $160. If the rifle was indeed an M91/30 as converted by the Russian government, then it is most definitely not chambered in .30-06

    Without photos there's too many things it 'could' be. Had it been sporterised?

    It could be a Remington M91 still in 7.62x54r

    It could be a Remington M91 rechambered to .30-06 by Bannerman (and others) in the 1920s

    It could be a Remington M91 converted to an M91/30 by the Soviets - incredibly rare. One is known, but whose to say there aren't others?

    That figures! I should have tried slipping a .30 in there but auctioneers get upset when they know a gun is loaded..It was not sporterised.. It is gone now!
