    Mosin 91/30. Suggestions for parts?

    Howdy,

    Just recently received what I believe to be a 1943 Mosin 91/30 Izhevsk based on the markings. First firearm I've ever owned. I'm trying to learn what I can to get it into the best condition and to practice marksmanship at a outdoor range.

    It's missing the bayonet and all its accessories, so im trying to find where a reliable place to find the proper tool, oils, etc. Any suggestions or general maintenance info would be greatly appreciated.

    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.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    You can try Numrich, Samco, Liberty Tree or various auctions for the parts and accessories. The cleaning and care supplies are the standard items you would use on any gun (cleaning rod, cleaning rod tip. cleaning rod jag, .30 caliber brush, .30 caliber patches, gun oil, Hoppes cleaning solvent, etc.). There a lot of videos on the internet that can show you how to dismantle it, clean it and reassemble it (it is really very simple!). Take your time and enjoy the experience! Hope that helps!

    Right now on eBay if you type in mosin nagant bayonet, there are at least eight or nine examples I saw. Most people have an ebay account so I thought this might be the easiest avenue for you, hope this helps

    Iron sight and use see SRF :
    Iron sight adjustment, FORS - Surplus Rifle Forum - www.surplusrifleforum.org

    Parts are always good at Libertytreecollectors, Mainly you need a sling and bayonet. The other stuff is nice for display. Maybe some dummy rounds. I spend way to much cash buying goodies from them. see link.
    https://www.libertytreecollectors.co...?idCategory=41

    Start reading some basic books, get them used:
    Buy a copy of Collecting Classic Bolt Action Military Rifles by Paul S Scarlata and read the introduction twice: "Caveat Emptor Let the buyer beware".
    Buy a copy of Bolt Action Military Rifles of the World by Stuart Mowbray and Joe Puleo Read it as if a bible. This book provides fantastic photographic details of the metal markings and stock cartouches one should look for on an intact, non refinished rifle. After reading it, you will know what attributes to search out on a particular model--- to be sure you are getting the best of the best specimen.
    More good books for a beginner:
    A Collector's Guide to Military Rifle Disassembly and Reassembly, by Stuart Mowbray and Joe Puleo, 2007, Mowbray Publishing
    Fantastic pictures on the bolt take down and special tricks for different rifles. It covers 48 common surplus rifles. Excellent step by step color pictures. Mowbray is know for his excellent photography. Just great details & steps on the many different bolts.

    Shooting World War II Small Arms, by Mike Venturing, 2014, Wolfe Publishing.
    This book is about shooting the rifles and reloading ammo for the odd surplus stuff. Great info and comments on reloading and what factory ammunition is made for each rifle/ pistol. Primary emphasis is WW II firearms, both rifle & pistols. He looks at the ammunition.

    Join a range and talk to some of the surplus rifle shooters. It will not stop at just one. Observe a CMPicon match, to get familiar with range safety practices- watch a few range safety videos if no friend to take you to a range or match. Get a nice spotting scope so you can see the hits from the line.

    Now, a Mosin bolt& trigger tune job if needed. Pay attention to the bolt contact surfaces and give them a polish. Mosin bolts and Russianicon guns like grease.

    MOST important if you never owned a firearm, been to a range or a gun show, never been in the military. It is a must that you take a range safety course ,or a CMPicon class, or hunter safety class, or an intro conceal carry class if you do not have a friend that can show you safety rules and range etiquette. SAFETY first. Please consider one of the options. Most ranges have beginner safety classes. It can be very rewarding.
