My Balkan Mutt

Postby Miller Tyme » Sat Apr 09, 2016 12:45 pm

Everybody loves a Mutt, pure breads are nice, but there is something about a mutt you just have to like, and this 1909 Sestroryetsk M91 is no exception.
It shows signs of its Balkan Heritage, with the ground Imperial Crests, and is a real mix master , the stock is off a 1915 Izhevsk and the barreled action contains parts from Sestroryetsk, Chatellerault, Izhevsk, and Tula (both pre and post 1928). As an added bonus the rifle also came with a Tula bayonet and the total package was priced less than the cost of a typical refurb'ed 91/30.

Reminds me of a deal Century offered back in November of 2000. I got three Balkan M91's for $39.87 each according to my book. I think it might have been three for $100 plus $19.61 shipping expense. No cleaning rods and no bayonets.
