If its not covered in cosmoline prolly should skip it for one that is. A good coating of that crap is a great indicator it hasn't been used since the rooskies rearsenaled it to like new condition. Anything else is a crap shoot. Stay away from the chicom versions unless you really know your mosins.

Bore and crown are the most important, anything else is mostly cosmetics. If it is over $150 it should be pristine, and come with all the bells and whistles.

I can believe the antis wrote it but it is totally based on BS. The post should be stricken to ensure it doesn't snowball. There should no such quotes by anti gun lobyists allowed unless they are substantiated by facts.
