It is the od green canvas with leather strap fasteners. It is fitting for the Mosin-Nagant. I prefer it over most any other sling for this rifle. I don't know if it is a perfect match for the time period but it is very close. Most of these rifles I have seen have had these slings on them.

it comes with a very good canvas sling. its military grade, so it is very durable. it can be adjusted for length. i recommend using the sling that comes with it, and save your money for more ammo ( you can get about 60 rounds of surplus for the cost of a good sling)

I got a nice, heavy-duty cloth sling (created 1952) in olive drab with some leather mounting straps. Overall, a nice sling. Not sure if all Mosin-Nagants from Cabela's come with a sling, but sling are cheap and Russian imports are relatively easy to find.

Look for rifle ammo marked 7.62x54R. You can purchase this ammo at cabela's FMJ (full metal jacket) for target practice and soft points for deer or bear hunting. I like to purchase surplus millitary ammo in the 440 rd cans. My two mosin 91/30 shoot great with bulgarian circle 10 millitary ball. If you use surplus ammo remember to clean ASAP after shooting. Just run a patch soaked in windex/ water.. dry patch or two... then clean bore with your reg. bore cleaner... finish with patch coated with gun oil.

Hunting: Soft point, 182 to 203 grain. NEVER use mil-surp to hunt.
Target: New production FMJ 182 grain. Some mil-surp match ammo is available. Different rifles "like" specific loads / brands. You should be able to get a 2" 100 yard group with a little work.
Plinking: Surplus, Light ball, steel core. Corrosive, but cheap. Accuracy is literally hit and miss, as most surplus ammo is 30-40 years old. For "pie plate" groups.

The mosin nagant is a very simple bolt action. Yes you have to take it apart and clean off the cosmoline, but the gun only has like 4 parts, so its not as big of a pain as cleaning the cosmoline off semi-auto surplus rifles like an M1 Garand.

Yes... Every surplus 91/30 was covered in cosmoline. Lots of information on the web (youtube) concerning cleaning,shooting, and care for these rifles. I fill up an oil drain pan with gasoline and used a cheap chinese bristle brush to scrub off cosmoline from the various parts. Play close attention to the bore, barrel and bolt. Clean the wooden stock with mineral spirits and use boiled linseed oil to seal the barrel / action channel. I also clean the bore with hoppes #9 (let it soak for a few hours. I also clean the bore with an electronic bore cleaner. You can find information (youtube)concerning the construction and use of a home-made electronic bore cleaner.

Still has cosmoline. But it's not as hard to clean as one would imagine. Boiling water down the barrel and clean as you would otherwise. You can print off the disassembly off the net to aid in take down and reassembly.

answer 5
This coating in not the "Cosmoline" that the US used. It is like axel grease and cleans off easier. I suggest, as many others, that you dissasemble the barreled action and trigger housing assembly from the stock and clean all metal with bore solvent or something comparable. Use only a lemon oil or some such to clean the wood stock as this rifle was refurbished using a cheap shellac coating that will flake off fairly easily. Shooting it will help get more grease out of the hard to get to areas. Or put it in a black plastic bag and place it on the dash of a car and let the sun melt it out for you.

The modern ammo sold in stores is non-corrosive. However, you can purchase surplus ammo in 440 round tins at less than half the cost of new production ammo. In fact this ammo is cheaper than if you reload for 7.62x54R. YOU MUST CLEAN bore, chamber, and bolt face with hot soapy water or windex ... then clean and oil. You must clean your rifle right after each shooting session!!!! ... If you shoot surplus ammo.

there is some non-corrosive ammo made for this gun, but the corrosive surplus is much cheaper. the corrosive ammo is called corrosive because salts in the primers attract moisture, which can cause rust. The corrosive ammo is perfectly fine to shoot, unless you dont clean your guns. cleaning is a necessity, but it is well worth all of the cleaning.

just get the corrosive ammo, it will save you a lot of money. remember to clean the bore, muzzle and chamber though.

Yes, all ammunition for this rifle is corrosive. However, it isn't a problem if you clean it well after each day at the range or out hunting. I've had mine for over a year and fired around 200 rounds through it and so far I've had no problems with corrosion. Hope this helped you.

PathfinderOne makes some good points / instructions on modifying the bayonet to fit your 91/30. I own three of these rifles... each bayonet socket had to be touched up with a file and abrasive paper to fit each rifle. Every Mosin 91/30 that i own shoots dead-on with the bayonet and slightly high and to the right without. You can modify the front sight to shoot dead on at 100-200 yrds. Lots of information on the web. concerning this rifle and it's operation.

I recently re fitted a tight bayonet to a Mosin Nagat 91/30 .Should you wish to have an easier assembly of the bayonet here is what to look for:
1- Check for interference between the barrel and the bayonet mounting "cylinder". Most likely this will be the first point to be relieved. Most of the interference was in the front part of the mounting cylinder. The excess material was removed from both ends with a Dremel tool.
2- The next point of interference was with the "U" shaped connecting section that gets twisted to the front sight. Both right , left and center sections were carefully filed and fitted for a good fit against the base of the front sight. Be careful fitting this "U"section. You may not have to do much filing right and left but the center may require more filing to get the spring loaded retainer to properly snap in place. Additionally, you will see that the base of the U is at an angle ... follow the angle when filing.
Summary: My Mosin now accepts a properly fitted (tight) bayonet that can be assembled by hand without tools. Now It is easy to assemble and disassemble the bayonet . And, the spring loaded retainer snaps into its proper position every time.

The conditions was good to excellent, and built like a brick house. The first day I took it out, it was flawless. I was able to shoot rounds through full grown oak trees and was able to consistently hit the inner circles of my target. Where else are you going to find a high powered rifle built like this for the money? Nowhere. This is hands down the best rifle for the money. Check out the Nagant pistol too.

I have purchased two 91/30 rifles from cabela's Hamburg, PA store. These rifles were in very good condition. Pic a rifle with a nice strong rifling and a good barrel crown or a rifle that has been counter-bored. COUNTER-BORING is done to fix barrel crowns and rifling that was damaged in the field when soilders used the issue cleaning rod/kit. The web has tons of information on these rifles.
With proper cleaning and care... these rifles are great shooters of powerful and cheap 7.62x54R ammo.

Condition will vary, but for the most part (and all I have seen sold at Cabelas) they are pretty darn clean. The refurbishment done likely in Romania in the 70's which essentially made them all 91/30's did a decent job of making a good gun. If your Cabelas has multiples in stock, look through til you find one you like.

Each rifle varies in quality due to them being surplus. It just depends on what time of rifle you choose off the rack and i suggest looking at all of them before you pick. Some have been used and are rather worn, others may not have been used at all. However, every single one though has had every pore filled with cosmoline so extreme cleaning is required.

The bolt may be hard to cycle for a youth. The Nagant stock is a bit awkward, with the steep grip angle. An aftermarket stock may help.
The M44 / T53 Carbines are smaller, but the already rough recoil is worse on the shorter rifles
A small frame person could easily shoot this rifle. Just probably not comfortably.

Well, depends on how much a kick the youth can handle. I'd say the kick is right between a 30-06, and a .308. I let my 13 yr old shoot it, and she did once, and didn't want a second shot. She is 5' 2 " and weighs 120 lbs.

The Mosin-Nagant 91-30 that Cabela's offers is chambered for the 7.62X54R. The ammunition can be purchased through Cabela's or many other large retailers.

Here is a link to view some of the different 7.62X54R ammo that Cabela's offers: http://www.cabelas.com/catalog/sear...

answer 3
Both my Mosin Nagant 91/30 (Invensk and Tula mfg.) like 148 gr. surplus ball. My M44 likes heavier bullets.
I purchase ammo in 440 rd cans.... However, cableas has a few nice brands that shot well out of my rifles.
The Serbian PPU mfg. has reloadable brass cases, however, I found it cheaper just to shoot surplus ammo. Much information is on the web related to these rifles and 7.62x54R ammo... do your research.
If you do use surplus ammo you MUST CLEAN YOUR RIFLE AFTER EACH SHOOTING SESSION.

FMJ or hollow point. FMJ is fairly easy to find. You won't find it at any Wally world that I know of. They carry the 39 version.

It depends. If your barrel still has good rifling and you properly mount a good scope, you could shoot several hundred yards. I've seen hits with the mosin as high as 1000 yards, but it depends on the shooter.

From experience, I say 150 yards to get on a 10" diameter target. (No scope). 700 - 800 yard shots are fun to shoot because the rifle sights were set up for this range. You may notice they shoot a little high generally. ( I have 5 MN rifles)

The iron sights on a M91/30 are marked up to 2,000 meters. For an M44 carbine, I believe the sights are marked up to 1000 meters. That said both those settings are for volley fire at massed formations of infantry. You might be able to hit something the size of a deer's vitals at 100-200 yards with a Mosin-Nagant's iron sights.

Mosin's are difficult to scope, but if you managed to do it you'd probably see a maximum effective range comparable to a .308 Winchester.

Absolutely. The round used by the mosin nagant is comparable to a 30-06 round, so its got more than enough knockdown power to bring down a dear, and the rifle itself is more than accurate enough, it was used as a sniper rifle in world war 1 and 2 if proof is needed of its accuracy. Just make sure you don't try to hunt with fmj ammo, fmj doesn't mushroom like normal hunting ammo, so its harder to get a kill.

After WWII, these rifles were inspected and rebuilt. Parts that are out of spec. are replaced. Most of these rifles will contain a mix of tula and Izvensk parts... due to this rebuild process. Some of these rifles received counter-boring due to soilder care in the field. Improper use of the cleaning tools resulted in damage to the crowns Thus, the first inch or two of rifling was bored out (counter-boring). After the rebuild process... these rifles were coated in cosmoline and placed into war reserve.

I believe the importers checked the head-space. I would be more concerned with bore condition.

All have been shot--they are military surplus. Some have been shot less than others. When you go into the Gun Library (I suggest at the opening of the store on a weekday), they have bore lights that you can look at the bore. If the end 1 to 2 1/2" is counter-bored, it has been shot a lot. If it is extremely dark or pitted, it has been shot a lot. Do not just look at the stock--it may have been banged-around a lot, so check the barrel and bore out. You can always refinish it like I did

There's a ton of variation in the condition of these rifles, but it's safe to say that pretty much every one has been fired at some point.
Even the good ones (with the best, brightest bores) may have been selected for possible sniper issue. They put a few rounds through them, and if the group isn't acceptable, they go back to garrison. Or storage. Or maybe Stalingrad or Kursk as standard infantry issue.
After an arsenal refinish, it's hard to tell. Even the top grade rifles usually have had some use. 70 years makes for a long, interesting service life.

Yes you will have to clean the cosmoline off, but it really can be quite easy. The best way I've found is to go to a a hardware store and buy a pint of lamp oil. Get a catch pan of some sort, and an old toothbrush and paintbrush. Disassemble the rifle, there are lots of youtube videos on this, then use the brushes and lamp oil to remove the cosmoline, then re-assemble. The lamp oil will quickly and easily dissolve the cosmoline without hurting the finish or taking more than a few minutes.

You will be busy removing cosmoline. Paint thinner, gasoline, and WD-40 all work. Make sure you removal ALL of the cosmoline from the bore and bolt. You might wanna consider using an electronic bore cleaner to clean the gunk out of the barrel after cosmoline removal. You can aquire electronic bore cleaning instructions on the web. Mosin Nagant bores tend to have a rough finish inside and have aquired lots of fouling... EBC has made both of my 91/30 and M44 shoot better.

you have to clean it yourself, but this is easy. take the bolt apart and soak those parts in some mineral spirits. then take the barrel/receiver out of the stock and wipe it down. run a bore brush through the bore before you take your first shot.

this only takes about 30 minutes, and is very easy. there are many videos online telling you how to take the gun apart. there is even a tool included to help with this.

It varies rifle to rifle. The gun I bought came with almost no cosmoline in it at all, but I have seen some that are heavily lathered with it. So, it depends. You have to look at each rifle individually. The action and the bolt are where most of the cosmoline will be, in my experience. Hope this helped you.

In order to mount the Advanced Technology (ATI) Mosin-Nagant Scope Mount System, item number IK-221836, on a Mosin-Nagant Model 91/30 Rifle, item number IK-291195, permanent modification to the rifle must be made. Modification to the rifle includes cutting off the bolt handle and installing the replacement included in the package and drilling and tapping the receiver of the firearm to mount the scope. If done properly this would not weaken the rifle in any way.

answer 2
I do not know what ATI stands for. No matter any way.
Presume you will mount to the tangent sight as most mounts use that device without modifying the straight bolt handle. Any of the fill in mounts will work with different degrees of solidity. An alternative, which I would use, is to completely remove the tangent sight and mount a" 3/8 dovetail to Weaver". This is a typical mount for air gin mounts and easy to find on the I-net. Pre WWII Mosins pinned and possibly soldered the tangent sight base to the dovetail so be prepared for this should you follow this mounting method. believe this mount to be more secure than locking into the tangent sight receptacle, You can then mount a pistol scope to the weaver rail directly with no need to modify the bolt. I did say and mean a pistol scope with about a 9 inch eye relief. I have mounted these on a few similar rifles and the ( inch eye relief works very well. There are several inexpensive scope models on the market. Don't go crazy with the power magnification. 4x is ample and a 2x6, 2x7 is plenty. i have come to appreciate illuminated scopes and the offer an alternative color against black backgrounds. Remember, the Mosin is a military firearm and may not shoot any better than 1.3 inch groups at 100 yards. Test fire you Mosin to see how it groups before you go for a scope. This way you can match its ability to the power that suits your need. Lastly The Mosin Sniper rifle, which grouped better than 1.3 inches used only a 3.5x scope. Hope this helps.

Take it to a gunsmith if you want a scope, it might cost as much as what you paid for the rifle, possibly more, but if you really want a scope for this, it's the way to go. They will put on something that will not damage your rifle, i.e., get what works, not necessarily what you want.

Why would you want to have someone do this for you?
If you purchased the gun and plan to shoot it , you would be wise to clean it yourself. Here is why. The bore will probably need to be scrubbed after the basic cos is removed. I scrub with bore solvent ( or wd40) and run patches thru till the come out clean, and I mean clean. The last Mosin took about 30 minutes to clean and scrub. Second, you will probably shoot surplus ammo which uses a mercuric primer. Mercuric primers and ammo are Highly CORROSIVE and the barrel will need to be scrubbed (preferably immediately after firing). Do not put this off for a "rainy day' .
I am sure you can get a gunsmith to clean out the cos, but I suspect given its your gun, you will probably do a better job. So, why not lean how to do this yourself.
PS; check out the I-net for "how to clean mercuric primer residue" . Good luck and I hope this helps.

Its a lot easier to just do it yourself. This saves you a lot of time and money cleaning it.

Disassemble the bolt using the screwdriver looking tool in the small bag that comes with it. there are many videos showing how to do this. use mineral spirits to soak all of the parts. Then take the barrel/receiver out of the stock and wipe it down. make sure you get all of the cosmoline out of the trigger and receiver, or you might have a few problems. the first few rounds you fire will have some cosmoline on the casings when you remove them. Thats normal.

The safety is applied by pulling the hammer back and turning it to the left, catching it to the left receiver wall.

answer 4
Look at the back end of the bolt. The large round disc is the safety. To engage the safety you will have to grip the disc like part and pullback then rotate left.
You are actually pulling back against a spring and hanging the bolt section on part of the receiver. If you are successful in engaging the safety you have very strong hands. Not everyone can accomplish this task.
So the bottom line is: YOU ARE THE SAFTY!

couldn't find it either at first. Pull the knob at the rear of the bolt back and rotate counter clockwise an 1/8 turn. On mine it is an extremely difficult feat to accomplish.

Cabela’s makes no representations or provides no legal advice that any item is legal to purchase or possess in your location. Please check with your local authorities to confirm legality in your area.

Guess that depends on where you are, but most places there is no license requirement for any gun. Just complete the NICS background paperwork, or on computer at Cabelas. Piece of cake.

Right now you don't need any type of license. The dealer will run a back ground search on you and you will fill out the registration paper work. You might want to hurry in case the laws change.

Check with state local gun laws. PA requires you to fill out a form and the dealer has to do a criminal background check. You will need a driver's license as ID.

I recently purchased a Mosin Nagant Model 1891/30 at Cabelas in Sidney, NE. It is again from PW Arms but this time it came from the Molot factory in Russia. It came with no extras. No Bayonette, no sling, no anything. It did not get packaged in a box. It was carried to the front of the store for me to take out to my vehicle. I bought one out of curiosity and for an example in my collection. I will however, continue to seek out authentic arsenal refurbished examples that have not been tampered with and/or altered, prior to release for sale here in the states.

No, but that doesn't mean you can't use one. You can either fire it left handed or try to teach yourself to shoot right handed. It is hard, but can be done. Other than that, you may have to look at a more modern rifle.

Most people who get this rifle do not use a optic, myself included. It was designed for the russian military over 100 years ago. There is a sniper version on the markets that was produced with a scope and aftermarket rails you can mount to the rifle by removing the rear sight.

The rifle that Cabelas offers has a straight bolt arm. You can't mount a scope on it without changing the bolt arm.

You can use a multitude of optics. Many of the mounts have to be drilled a tapped by a gunsmith, but there are only a few that are no drill. With any scope, you will have to have the bolt modified for a curved handle to clear. Make sure to have the new handle welded as the small machine screw supplied with many new bolt handles is not adequate for strength and reliability.

You need to get a mount kit from places like ebay or amazon. You have to remove the rear sight and install a rail that bolts on. Then you use a long eye relief scope.

answer 5
For optics you have two basic options:
1) Remove the rear sight leaf and insert an after-market weaver mount. It's not reported to be the most stable, but it's cheap and easy. You can remove the entire rear sight base for a better mount, but it's much more work. You must use a long eye relief (pistol) scope.
or
2) Drill into the receiver, and mount a standard scope over the bolt. You will need to replace the straight handle bolt with a curved one. Also, you can drill a scope mount directly on the stock. Good luck holding zero.
I suggest #1 with the sight base removal. My variable 3-7X scope is rock solid on the dove tail where the base was mounted. If you want to use a higher powered scope, you must use option 2.
