This is how everything looked straight out of the box. I'm very pleased! Especially after I came from Cabela's this morning and saw the chewed up tomato stake they had on the rack for $149.00. These rifles are beautiful! Both are Tula manufactured Hex Receiver guns. One is a 1931 date, the other is a 1936. Both actions work very slick! If you're looking for a nice Mosin for the price, Classic Arms is the way to go. As you can see, even the bayonets and accessories are in mint condition. Bill T.

Nice! I like how the numbers in the rear sight are filled in with red. Is that paint, or maybe red gunstock shellac? Either way it's a neat feature that looks like somebody did intentionally, and with a nice effect.

Oh, FYI those bottles are for cleaner (schalok) and lube (neft). As I understand it the soviets used something similar to USGI bore cleaner to neutralize the salts. On the side with a Cyrillic N (the "H") was gun oil.

I believe the red markings are from a China Marker. I have them in both red and white. Midway sells them, and they are for that specific purpose. You simply clean the area you wish to fill with some denatured alcohol, then rub the point of the marker into the lettering, filling it in. You then use the alcohol to wipe away the excess. They also sell "Bonanza Gold" and Silver filling kits that do much the same. It's a fast, easy process that really makes markings and proof marks stand out really well. Bill T.

Yeah those are nice for being used. Birch was the wood of choice for the Ruskies and on most issued mosins you see some wood repairs such as at the end of the stock near the muzzle or the buttstock toes.

Very nice considering the beat to heck nature most are in around here from the stores.

I would just like to correct you all... I have it on good authority from several experts at the local shop/range that the silver tins actually contain Gypsy Tears, and are NOT to be used for cleaning. >.>


Seriously though, they look nice! Which one's mine? :D
