Got this one from a friend who isn't a BIG Mosin freak and just wanted a 91/30 to shoot so I traded a nice refurb for his Finn. 1935 Izzy round recvr,Early Century import, typical Finn 91/30 condition well used ! Bolt matches,counterbored,Russian stock, SA, D, 41 marked. Looks like it spent some outdoor time before they collected it up. It wil go nice with my Finn Hex Recvr 35 Izzy.

I have gotten a couple of Mosins, 91/30 or M30 from GunBrokers. They were both round receivers w/barrel marker SA and D. Good shooters and well used rifles. One is in a Fin 2 piece stock. I enjoy shooting them but not quite as much as the M39's.

I don't recall ever coming across a 35 round recvr in the current refurbs, Finding a Finn capture one was a bonus.

Is there an observed serial break between 1935 hex - round or are they somewhat intermixed ? My 1935 Hex is 18,899

Mine is 51,545. Mosin Nagant dot Net says that there were 59,470 M91/30s produced at Izhevsk in 1935. I guess there "should" be at least 8,000 more out there. That's still a pretty small number in the whole scheme of things.

The three previous years were around 130,000 and 1936 was over 200,000 with increases nearly every year following until 1942 except for 1940. I'd say the low numbers from 1935 were due to the conversion to a round receiver.

While the transition may be related to the conversion, I would tend to think it was more related to the Great Depression, which was a world wide event. There simply was not much economic incentive to produce military weapons, until Germany and Japan started to really crank up their Military production. The Finnish weapon production in the same time period was very low, as well as US production, and probably volume of the other major powers.

Finnish production was low every year....but even more so in 35 due to the design flaw in the m/27 stock and subsequent "recall" of the rifles and repair that took place over the next 3 years.
