Mosin nagant
 
Just checking for current pricing looking for a decent one nothing collectible just a good shooter and don't want to overpay. I've done a lot of research figured it didn't matter which one I get as long as its in decent shape and take it to a gunsmith to have the head space checked. Any other advice?

Anywhere Fromm 89 to 140 is the price range. I paid $100 for a 1934 hex. Clean all the cosmoline. And start shooting.

Thanks just picked up sks for 350 and overpaid a little wanted to start out on the right foot this time.

You did ok on the sks if its in good shape. I basically just paid $450 for one.

Yeah mint condition. maybe A 100 rounds through it all matching numbers late model norinco sks imported in in the 90's still haven't got to fire it maybe next weekend.

I also recently aquired one of the later Norincos.. A DP model if you know what that means... Irons at 100 yards on a 10" plate would likely be easy... I was nailing soda cans at about 60 with it no problem. Thing really shoots far better than I had thought it would...

You can get a 91/30 on the internet for 90$, but after shipping,

FFL, and taxes and fees, you may find yourself saddled with a

mismatched, re-arsenaled POS.

You have a much better chance of getting a rifle with

matched serials and a nice stock if you can look at it before you buy.

Shipping will be part of the LGS's overall higher price, then.

Some mail order places let you specify a "hand selected" rifle

for an additional fee, which IMHO, is well worth it, especially if

they will guarantee a hex receiver and matching serial #s.

Bear in mind you will have a long time to regret not spending

enough, if you wind up with a less than satisfactory unit.

If you are looking for a basic shooter, J&G has consistently had a fair price and good service. When you are buying a entry-level Mosin-Nagant, it is not a bad place to buy. There are other vendors that are just as good, I am sure. Be sure, if you are buying a standard rifle that you calculate in the accessories, which sell separately for around $35.00, which can be a significant percentage of the purchase price. Also factor in shipping cost, there can be big differences in the final price. You may also be able to buy the field head-space gauge for the same price as taking it to a smith to check. If you never buy another Mosin, you can ebay it and get your money back.

These rifles are inexpensive, not cheap. Get one while the price is low, it won't last forever.

Just went to the pawnshop and all they had was a remanafactured mosin covered in cosmoline long barrel not the carbine for 170 they have the carbine for 300 think I will wait for the gunshow in a month or so.

The pawn shop owner is waiting for a victim. The prices are out of line. Go look at Gunbroker, you can see what the rifles are actually SELLING for. Forget the bid opening price, look for the rifles that actually have bids on them.
