there were select 91/30s that were chosen to be sniper rifles, they were said to be the ideal cut as far as dimensions and trueness. They came with a bent bolt arm and scope. Some of them are still in use with factory arm and scope, but some were rebuilt and reissued, but not as sniper rifles. The only way to tell is to look at the barrel and look for the 2 threaded holes used to mount the scope. When they were reissued, the outside of the holes were filled over to appear the same as the rests, but you can still spot the 2 threaded holed on the inside, just by opening the chanber and looking at the left side of the barrel. There would still be the threaded holes, about 2" apart.

I knew about the holes on the receiver and the bent handle, wasn't sure if thats what you meant. it isnt a "sniper" model, but the bore is excellent and shoot very accurate. i am going to get it all set up and see how well it does at 500 yards with handloads using match bullets.

i will sell this one to you once i get my Richards. i bought a rocksolid scope mount, made in the USA and they are much better than the ATI crap. i also got my bolt handle and allen head screw set from them.

the rocksolid does require drilling and tapping, but they are quality. you drill 2 holes on the top of the receiver, then one on the side towards the back. if you have access to a Bridgeport your life will be much easier. my stock was camo, but i have painted it several times. its getting a Vietnam era tiger stripe paint job here soon.

I have a 1942 Tula with matching numbers that I've shortened to 22" and dropped into an ATI stock, and welded a old-school M-70 bolt handle on, but I think I'm gonna take it further, with a Richards Mannlicher-style 'Old Classic' stock and 18-20" barrel, butterknife bolt handle and peep sights. The best part is when you post pics on the gun forums and the milsurp snobs go bannanas about you altering another holy piece of history...There were only 31 million M-Ns made, so of course we're gonna run out any time now.
