I can tell you that.

Somehow, there's just a fun factor with Mosins

that's hard to describe.

ARs simply don't have it, IMO.

I got my first Mosin, I was thinking," ennhh, I'll

fire a mag of rounds through it, clean it, and

save it for a conversation piece."

I went to the range,

and 80 rounds later I was hooked!

I thought my Mosin was awesome.... Until I got a M1903....

I've seen them in action, but will have to wait to actually experience it a week from today. I absolutely love bolt actions, so I'm sure the mosin will fit me just fine.

Yes they are fun. But as the other poster said, only until you can get a Spfld. 1903 or 03A3.

Waiting on my '03 as we speak. Not holding my breath.

I was one of those guys, " Why would anybody spend the money for a '03 or Garand, when you can get a Mosin or SKS for cheap...." Then I shot the '03 and Garand, now I totally understand!!

The Garand was my first centerfire rifle. It's great, but the Mosin

has an attraction all it's own.

Being somewhat of a milsurp shooter, I enjoy

the historic flavor of both rifles, from Big War.

Imagine the Wermacht getting hammered on the Eastern Front

by Mosins, while simultaneously getting blasted by Garands

on the Western Front...

Spingfields are way over rated. They are nice from a historical standpoint, But they are only a copy of the Mauser. A K98 or one of its' family are cheaper to shoot and just as accurate. The MN family is cheaper still to buy and shoot.
"The M-98 was so good that the U.S., after having been roughed-up by the Mauser equipped Spanish in Cuba when our Krag-Jorgensen service rifles were found wanting due to the inability of our troops to rapidly reload them (due to not having a stripper clip feed system), decided to build their own 98 style service rifle. Our resulting 1903 Springfield was so similar that Mauser sued the U.S. government over patent infringements and the U.S. ended up paying a royalty to Mauser for each rifle produced until our entry into the war in April 1917."

Sorry I've been absent, but I have an update. After 3 weeks of waiting, I've finally got the mosin. It's a 1935 Tula, hex. I've spent the last 2 days cleaning the damn thing and it's starting to look pretty good. The stock is acceptable, but could use some tlc. Not sure if I'm going to refinish it or not. We'll see.
