    Had one a few years ago and traded it +$100 for a Swiss K31 (which I will never regret). However for some odd reason I still oddly like the 91/30. I always thought of getting one and truly tearing it down, and modify it into a scout rifle or behind the seat in the truck hunting rifle, new stock, cut/thread the barrel (cutting the barrel I would want something to reduce the fireball ;)). Refinish the metal, maybe even go crazy and re-profile the barrel. LOL

    Am I crazy? I see them available still for $129+shipping/transfer, maybe I could find one at a local fun show for a better price.

    What are your thoughts?

    Yes you should. i want to get one just because the ammo is cheap plus and gives me an excuse to use a russian accent while shooting it. i seen them at a place to shoot for $169 with all the accessories.

    stop delaying and get another one....or two.....or ten now. they are steadily rising in price, and the ammo will be doing the same, so get them while they are still in the very affordable range.

    I have several of the 91/30's and really like them! Why do you need to justify an expense that is so trivial? If you want a $130 rifle, then get it! If it was a $1000 item and you had to choose between feeding your child or buying the item, then some soul searching may be in order. $130 rifle?.....jump all over it!
