just from what I've seen most mosins go from $150 to $80 depending, I got mine for $100 and they had a pallet full for $100 a piece, right now the same shop has them for 80 something a piece. You can get a nice one if you get to pick it out I chose a round receiver over a hex just because it had better rifling.

Are they fun to shoot? Will the ammo break the bank? 7.62x54R, is it hard to find?

Rebel, we have some very extensive threads on buying mosin nagants, I'll track then down and link them up when I get to the computer.
100 is not the best price, but its well within the going range, I paid 160 for mine with a tin (440) of ammo.

For comparison prices check out the classicarms.us website. They have some different grades; i think the cheapest was about $80. They have some surplus ammo for like $90 for the Mosin.

http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f18/7-62x54r-ammo-cheap-52368/ This is a really good one with a lot of info.

Also some good info here http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f18/91-30-a-49967/

Some help on getting that Mosin clean when you pick it up. Yes, I said WHEN not if.
http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f37/mosin-clean-up-50737/

I'm sorry for all these links, but as you can see there is a TON of info out there on Mosin Nagant 91/30s, entirely too much to go into for a simple yes/no on whether you should get one or not.

They are fun to shoot, I think maybe because they're so cheap and the ammo is too, yet they're built like tanks.

Don't know for absolute sure, but I think it may be the cheapest surplus ammo on the market. You can find the ammo at almost any gun show, order it online or through the mail, and can sometimes find some in gun stores. You will likely not find any in the local Wal Mart or big name sporting goods stores, although some of their locations may carry some.

I'd stick to the surplus ammo for cost, but beware, it is corrosive and takes a little more cleaning to negate the ill effects, but I've also gotten my hands on some new manufacture ammo recently that was absolutely filthy, so it can swing either way.


By the way, I only posted a fraction of the info I found, just to give you an idea on how much info is floating around out there.
I also recommend checking out www.7.62X54r.net

Thank you Trip and BelRockRebel, I got the same email and was just checking myself on how to identify a decent quality 91-30.

BelRock I am sure you know however if you don't, since we live in the wonderful state of Illinois the bolded section isn't really an option. Since you have to have a FOID card to purchase ammunition it is very difficult if possible to order ammo online as they would have to verify your FOID card before you could legally purchase it. However, I always see 7.62x54 at the very place that is offering the sale on the mosin.

Y'all can't order ammo? That sucks. Hey, there's always room in MS.

Bell- yes. they are fun to shoot. DO understand this is a high powered rifle, and DOES have significant recoil- a .22 it ain't. Ammo is still dirt cheap for the military surplus. Right now, they are probably the best bargain 300 yard rifle on the market.
