    Tell me what you got and what kind of groups you are shooting.

    Have a 91/30, but it needs it's headspacing fixed. Odds are I'll just buy a new one.

    I am about to buy at least one probably M91/30 and put on the ATI Monte Carlo stock and scope mount, with a Boltman ATI bolt then start looking for a good deal on a scope.

    Notthe greatest pic, but there she is. I have a bunch of Czech Silver Tip ammo I use in it. Match grade stuff. After a few shots that steel butt plate will give you a nice bruise.

    The scope is a new addition. Unfortunetly I've never had the chance to sight it in due to the headspacing getting worse.

    My dad has an M44 carbine. I used to have a M91 that I sold to a good buddy of mine in AZ when I moved to CO. I liked both rifles. They shot well. The M91 was a tack driver. I just had no need/use/place for it when I moved.

    My brother bought an M44 Carbine. You are right aboutthe fireball! Wee never shot for groups, as those soviet sights are so rudimentary, shooting for groups with those sights would be an exercise in futility. We use it for making big rocks into small rocks. Without having shot any groups, I cant say for sure, but we can hit 12" rocks regularly at 100 yards with it. Only thing I don't like about it is the cock-on-closing action. But for $80 out the door, it's tough to beat.

    I have a M44 Carbine, and I can't hit anything over about 20 yards with it, but it's purrdy, so I keep it with my collectibles.

    I totally forgot about this thread.

    I actually bought another 91/30 to replace my old one a few weeks ago. I haven't had the chance to shoot it yet, though.

    My buddy has one, I've shot it a couple times. From what I remember the grouping wasn't bad, but the trajectory was horrible.

    Was the bayonette on it when he shot it? They were calibrated at the factory with the bayonet in place. If you shoot it with the bayonet off it changes the trajectory a lot due to the barrel's resonance changing.


    Or something like that, anyways.

    I have a old one, its very short. we call it the "angry gun" since its very loud, kicks hard and shoots out alot of flame. someone did trigger work to it at some point. my friend got one still in cosmolene, it had a mile of trigger pull to it. very hard to shoot compared to mine.

    I had one, worst shooting gun ive ever owned. At 50yards you could hit a plate 10" diam. At 100yards youd be lucky to hit a 10x12 cardboard, I ended up giving it to a buddy of mine. Thing kicked like a mule too.
