91/30 1925 Tula Dual Date 1953 "MO" Second Issue - BEAUTIFUL!!
In 1925 this rifle started life as a normal hex receiver 91/30. In 1953, by order of Joseph Stalin a final purge was to begin. This rifle was pulled out of storage and re-issued by the Soviet Ministry of Defense ("MO"). Fortunately for tens of thousands of innocent Soviet Subjects, Uncle Joe died under "mysterious" circumstances. The purge never took place, and the weapons that were re-issued were returned to the arsenal to serve again if needed.
The bluing is 99%, it is a nice even dark blue, not the thick Soviet "paint" bluing. The markings on the receiver are nice and sharp, and the MO and /53 are deep and clear. The markings have yellow chalk in them so they will show for the photos, take an oily cloth and it will clean right out. There is a import mark on the left side of the receiver. There is NO shellac on the wood, only an nice smooth traditional oil finish. The receiver, bolt, floorplate, and buttplate are all stamped matching. The rifling is sharp and pronounced with dark frost in the groves. This should clean out with a few well placed rounds down range. This is not only a historical 91/30, but a little on the rare side. She once belonged to Joseph Stalin and stood ready to do his bidding. Now she can be yours, treat this old girl with a little respect.
