Mosin Nagant
to buy or not to buy? opinions?

Well, what is your intended use?

They're accurate, inexpensive, and milsurp, which I always find to be a fun plus.

Look at it like this, it'll probably cost you less than your last traffic or moving

violation ticket, so if you can keep your nose clean for a few months, and not

get pulled over for speeding or anything, it's like the gun is free...

(and please don't read anything into this, I know NOTHING of your personal driving habits, it's just a cost comparison, that's all)

Mosin nagants are great fun, people sometimes look at you crazy when you bring em to the range, the shockwave will knock their targets down and if you run out of ammunition they make extremely effective clubs/boat oars and if you have the bayonet than you may not even need ammo, you can just reach anything you would want to kill :D

You have a hard time buying a rust encrusted single shot 12 g for the price these are going for RIGHT NOW. Or wait a while and pay more. Crude, ugly, and you can run over one with a tank and it will still work (Ask the German Panzer Corps if I am exagerrating) Between 30-06 and .308 in power. Find one with a good bore, and you can shoot minute of zombie at 400 meters with some practice.

Probably the most fun for the least amount of money spent. everyone should own one. Never fails to make a big impression at the range as well as being a good conversation starter. Not a bad shooter, I bought mine for $89.

I think the MILSUP 8mm Mauser looks better than the Ruskie but @ $69 I'm very HAPPY!

And if you have an FFL03 it ships right to your door. :cool:

Con: Your rifle's accessory is a small tin can with a funny lid, but it's buried under an apartment building somewhere in Budapest.

Bonus: Install the bayonet and you can shish kabob your neighbors barking dog from your porch. (while he's tied up to his dog house)
