Alright /k/ this is my first day from being /nogunz/. Pretty hyped for being a firearm owner now. Got this Mosin Nagant 91/30 here. Pic related. Going shooting this weekend. Anything I should know?

All serial # matching made in 1942 in Russia somewhere. Cleaned as much as I could from the cosmoline. Just stoked
>>
How much u pay ?
>>
>>28585235
I polished the fuck out of every part of my bolt, replaced the stock firing pin spring with a 24 pound wolff spring, and added a sear shim and trigger spring. My m38 has the smoothest action I've felt on just about any gun, including my mauser that got basically the same treatment.
>>
>>28585235
>made in 1942 in Russia somewhere
If it's dated 1942 it was made at Izhevsk arsenal. You could form an entire ethnic group from people who own 1942 Izhevsk M91/30s; the Russians made like 10,000,000 at Izhevsk in that year alone.

Happy nugget day Anon.

If you are using surplus ammo, clean it real well when you get home, don't wait too long.

You are going to love it. Nugget was my first gun and I have 0 regrets.
>>
>>28585247
$150 dollars

>>28585412

Fair price in today's market. Sadly the days of $69.99 tomato stakes are gone for good.

>>28585235
Congrats on your first rifle OP, Seems like you got a pretty good deal. Nugget was my first rifle too.

Check out >http://7.62x54r.net/MosinID/MosinMarks.htm if you want to know what the markings on your rifle mean. It's pretty interesting what you'll find.

Clean that sucker immediately after you get home from shooting surplus 7.62x54R or the rust will be real.
>>
>>28585534
If you are that worried about potential corrosion on the drive home then just use non corrosive ammunition.
>>
>>28585773
how cheap is the non-corrosive? i feel it'd be more expensive than surplus.
>>
>>28585804
surplus is getting harder and harder to find. you can pick up wolf ammo for about 40 cents per round now.

All 3 are Izhevsk's
Top 2 are 91/30s
Bottom is an m44

I didn't bubba it up, bought it for really cheap, that's why I have it.
It shoots pretty good and I've killed many deer with it. Pls no hate

Then again I started with nugget but a carbine nugget so much fun

Does anyone know why surplus 7.62x54r is getting so hard to find and expensive?

Oh, and learn how to clean corrosive ammo correctly.

Use water to get the salts out and then clean as normal.

I was looking around that site and it appears to be from the Izhevsk one. Thanks for the insight!
>>
>>28586253
Most of That surplus ammo was imported from the Ukraine.
>>
>>28586278
Right but I don't think you understand what I'm saying here

They made trillions of rounds, they're not about to "run out" any time soon
>>
>>28586309
higher costs to obtain the ammunition. just like any resource be it oil or minerals or bullets. the easy and cheap stuff has already dried up. now the more expensive/more difficult to export/import stuff is what we are getting. every single surplus item ever follows this course.
>>
>>28586281
Had a guy try to sell me a 43 Izhevsk for $400 because "you can't find ww2 rifles everywhere"

i think people are really over-estimating the ability of surplus ammo to fuck your shit up

you go home after a day at the range shooting surplus, make supper, and put a little hoppe's on a bore snake - literally just 1 pass in and out and thats it.

oh and spend a few minutes thoroughly cleaning your bolt and it's like ur nugget has never been fired a few hours before

damage starts when you leave your rifle out after a few days and even then, you can get by but definitely not recommended at all

I'd like to wait a few months before I get my next firearm, due to my 21st soon. I'm thinking of a handgun. (More specifically a Walther PPK-S.)

If the recoil from an old steel plate battle rifle is too much, use the old GI trick: Fold a towel into quarters and throw it over your shoulder. Or just get a slip on recoil pad.

Your ability to handle felt recoil is not a litmus test of your manhood. Hitting the target consistently is.
>>
>>28586799
Absorbing felt recoil depends on how your built.
I'm a 6' 1" 146lb skelly(I'm trying to bulk) but I have broad shoulders. I can shoot my mosins all day long and not even feel it. Holding your rifle really tight against you helps too
>>
>>28586799
thanks for the tip, anon!
>>
>>28586799
The rubber recoil pads that go for 10 bucks or so are pretty good. Better length of pull and they teach you how to shoulder the rifle and deal with extended shooting time.

The best thing you can do is lift and get bigger, if that's your problem, or learn to shoulder correctly and while standing up. Shooting seated for me tends to fuck my shoulder up a bit after too long.

Guys why is ammo .40$/round right now? I just bought my nugget a little bit ago and haven't even gotten a full spam can yet, everything is sold out. Is this just because people freaking out about Obama's executive actions or is surplus drying up?

>>28587060
You realize that there's a conflict in the Ukraine happening at this very moment, right?

>>28587060
Surplus is being bought faster than it can be shipped because of king nigger, that and there is no incentive to increase the importation rate in a manner to keep prices low. Same shit happened with .22LR, people are willing to pay out the ass to get nugget food, and whatnot.

I got some surplus last year and haven't seen any at a reasonable price since. You either got to not shoot or suck it up and buy the $12/box Tulammo. I did get some monarch or $7/box a few weeks ago at Academy sports but it's not worth the 40min drive to get it.

sad story, anon.

is reusing brass easy and money-saving? sorry still a newbie with firearms in general.
>>
>>28587840
Normally 7.62x54 is about 75 cents per round but if you reload the brass and what not then it gets to about 50 cents per round. Four to five rounds in you already saved enough money to buy a soda while you shoot
>>
Just bought a type 53 with the wood in surprisingly good shape save for a few dings here and there. Seems like it kicks a bit harder than my friends m44 though which I didn't expect at all. Accurate as fuck though, I think I'm in love.

don't get into reloading to save money. ultimately you won't, especially not with common rounds that are cheap and readily available. Do it as a hobby.

To be completely honest, I couldn't think of anything else to put.

Where I live people only ever wear brown boots with jeans, except trendy college kids, so maybe that's why it popped into my head.

Don't take it too seriously. I shat it out in MS paint while running on 65+ hours of sleep deprivation.

>>28589975
Wasn't too worried. Out here in rural Illinois most people who wear boots actually use them for their intended purpose.

I'm also running on around 50+ hours. Hospital shifts fuck your sleep schedule up. Here's a cool file for your time.
