Moisin Nagants by the crate.

Just in case you wanted something to hand to all your grasshopper neighbors who show up frightened at the last minute.

Mosin Nagants should be thoroughly tested to make sure their sights are properly aligned for use without a bayonet. Standard Soviet methodology had conscripts fix bayonets during training because of the assumption they would be fighting in close quarters.

Some time ago, I was going to purchase a Moisin Nagant 91-30. I happened to mention that fact to a friend who had recently bought one. He told me to be sure to take a .308 bullet with me to the shop. He said to put the .308 projectile into the muzzle. If the projectile went into the muzzle all the way to the brass, the rifle was a .311 bore. If the projectile stopped about midway (the widest part of the projectile) it was a true .308. Another friend and I proceeded to the gun shop. There were two cases of 91-30's to choose a weapon from. Out of 23-24 guns, five were true .308's. After using a bore light and checking over all condition, I bought one. The friend who had warned me to take a bullet with me, had bought a .311 and had to load his own bullets for accuracy. Just something to keep in mind if you are interested in one.

When the ammo runs out the bayonet comes into its own.

... besides which unarmed anti-gun hoplophobes ain't worth the powder and shot ...

They fear the bullet - wait till they taste the bayonet!

Swift, your friend did not know what he was talking about.
A Russian 7.62 is.311, not .308.
It is the same for a 7.62X39, or a 7.62X54.
The metric measurment allows for a few thousands of an inch. Which makes them both 7.62, but the US is .308, and the Russian is .311.
