I Voted '91/39 because i have 2. Both Tula's on antique receivers. 1897 Tula/Sako '41 and a 1896 Tula/SK Y '42. Both from WGA.

I also have a Izhesvk 1935 ROUND receivered 91/30 that is beautiful. Going to a gushow this Sat. and will be coming home with more i suppose!

Ohhh! I think you meant M38/M44, Mine are Finn M39's long guns not carbines.

And i think you are right. I have been collecting Mosins for over a year now & I have never met a collector that fancies just one type of mosin. They all seem to be liked.

I only have an M44 carbine at the moment but hopefully soon I will have 91/30 and an M38 also. I want as many of them as I can get, They are really nice guns.

Watch out it is addicting. I started off with just an M44.

Now I have 2 M91s, 6 91/30s, 1 M39, 1 m38, 1 m44, and 2 91/59s.

And a lot more to follow.

I only have an M38. The same vendor also had M44's and 91/30's at the same price.

I chose the M38 because I wanted something short/light as a brush gun capable of protecting me from anything from dogs up through black bear, or could be used for closer range deer hunting. So the 91/30 was out.

Between the M38 and M44, it was a matter of weight. That, and I didn't really need or want the bayo.

I'm very happy with my decision. I love it. But I still want a 91/30 now.

Another thing to check out might be the Finnish M39s. They are supposed to be the best made and most accurate of all the MNs. A friend of mine got one a few months ago and its really a nice gun.
I have one on order from Wholesale Guns & Ammo. I was hoping to get it by Christmas but its not looking like that'll happen. I posted asking about the guns and the dealer and got some pretty positive responses. Just a thought.

I have yet to get any of the carbines but yes, a 91/30 is a great gun and even better is the Fin M39. The wood, workmanship and feel of a true military bolt action. Some of them have incredable striping in the wood!

I have:

2- 91/30s, both made in 1936 at Izhevsk (1 refinished by me, the other not sure)

1- M44, dated 1945(refinished by me)

1- M38 dated 1942(got as a Christmas gift, all matching ser #s & in excellent condition)

1- M1895 revolver dated 1944, ex. cond.

Still looking for a cheap 91/30 bayonet to add to collection. I have a WW2 Russian helmet, asst cleaning items, slings, ammo pouch, tools, etc.

Will probably ad an M39 & others if the price is right. I didn't pay over $50 for any one of these. I don't mind a few dings, but if an unissued or excellent example comes along, I'm interested.

I like 'em all & only want more as time goes on.

I like the history behind 91/30's. As long as I don't get too carried away, the pricing is within range of this (comrade) common man, too. ok> Considering the trillions made, they will probably be reasonable for a while longer.

Currently a M44, previously a M91. If I saw one at a reasonable price, I'd jump on a Finn M39.

I found a 1943 91/30 with no stock but a PERFECT bore. Put an ATI stock on it and took it to the range. This thing kicks like a frigging mule! I have heard people saying that the recoil isn't bad on the Mosin Nagants....the recoil on mine is about 3 times worse than my 12 gauge shotgun.

No joke...I put 4 rounds downrange and already knew I was going to be bruised. The next day I literally had a bruise like someone hit me with a baseball bat. I have shot all sorts of rifles and shotguns, never had anything that kicked like this.

I was thinking of getting a slip on pachmyer recoil pad to calm the beast down.

Honestly.. its not that painful for me. I've always loved shooting milsurp... and so a day at the range with mosins, Mausers, 1903's, ect... wasn't a big deal. I'd have a bruise, no doubt, but it wasn't as bad as a day of goose hunting with a 12 guage 3" or 3.5" shells!

Are you guys shooting the older heavy ball loads? I only shoot the 147 grain stuff.. as I have to stock ammo for the PSL and the mosins... I just went with the light ball.

I've got a 91/30, and I think it is my favorite rifle (I own) to fire. I would LOVE an M44, but I haven't seen any in my area for a while. I'm sure one will turn up as soon as my wife spends my next paycheck on shoes or whatever...
Even though my baby is ~60 years old, I can devastate cantaloupes with mine at 200 yards (and I'm not a great marksman). As old as it is, it's still incredibly functional. I wish I had the skills to scope mine myself, heretical as that may be...

I will be purchasing another in the not too distant future
