I found only one website that breaks out production data of 91/30's by both year and arsenal. Am curious about the 1930 Iz.

That data suggests that 30,000 were produced that year by Izhevsk.

http://www.mosinnagant.net/USSR/Soviet-M9130.asp

My rifle is numbered 30,121

Does anyone have higher numbered 1930 I's in 91/30?

Any data would be appreciated.

Thanks,
The Banker

All mine are lower numbers. My Izhevsk 1930 dragoon has a higher number. The problem with your question is "How do we know which is an original M91/30 and which is a converted dragoon?"

Yeah, mine is an extremely low number (comparatively speaking) aswell...




Could it be that 'low numbers' were originally dragoons and 'high numbers' were 91/30's (or vice-versa)???

Just throwing it out there...

The production numbers in my article are directly from the documents in the Izmash museum.

Thanks!

There aren't any production numbers on my site. No reason for there to be since they're already on Mosin Nagant dot Net. All I would be doing is copying the information from there and giving credit to Tuco, Vic, and KH. Not that I mind giving them credit, it would just be duplication. Maybe some day when I have everything else on my site done exactly as I'd like it I'll do it. ;)

Thanks for the response. Guess I'm just putting a feeler out there to see if anyone has a 1930 Izhevsk (iz, izy....) with much higher than a 30,000 serial number. I've encountered many sights that have data tables with serial number rnages of those reporting in to the surveys. I suppose there's not quite the need with 91/30's, but was curious if that type of data set was out there.

I guess a follow-up to that point would be has anyone ever determined what the cyrilic symbols stand for in actual numbers to determine the exact # your rifle is? Not that it really matters, but would be fun to know.
