For that price I will stick to the CA big 5 yeah it was a 10 day wait but it was worth the 100$ I spent on mine.

Eventually you are going to wake up to the new minty

M44s. They will cost herds more than 129.95. YMMV,

but you may find they are worth it...

Hey I love my Mosin, cost me 119 bucks, the numbers all match and I bought the spam can ammo. I find it to be highly accurate but it's a bit of a pain in the butt to clean the gun after shooting it. Well worth it in the long run though. And like a lot of the guys have said here, it's a piece of history.

pain in the butt how? I drop the bolt out and use a wire brush with a patch, finish off with a bore snake that I put a couple of drops of CLP on. once the patches start to come out clean-ish. No different than cleaning any other bolt action rifle, there are about a jillion .30 caliber cleaning kits available.....

I have a 42 and 44 91/30, a 35 hex, and an m44.... They're addicting, I promise

The old ammo is corrosive, I use windex then hot soapy water first then clean the gun normally. Just more steps you have to use with corrosive ammo. Not that big of a deal though you're right.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but all ammo is corrosive if you don't clean your gun right. So why not just shoot the so called corrosive ammo then clean your gun really well. If you are just shooting for fun the "spam can" is the best way to go.
