Soviet Model 91/30 Mosin Nagant rifles

We have just discovered a crate of Soviet 91/30 rifles in our warehouse that have been there for at least eight years. All are arsenal refurbished rifles but, unlike most available in today's marketplace, all have very small import marks beneath the barrel near the muzzle rather than enormous "billboard" import marks on their receivers that other firms have for sale. Every one has stamped matching serial numbers (unless noted otherwise), and aside from cleaning-rods no accessories are included.  CLICK on the photo above to access our 91/30 page or surf to http://www.empirearms.com/9130.htm
