A friend of mine has nothing but pump rifles and I really dislike them I would choose a mosin over them any day. Just because it's a $100 rifle doesn't mean it's junk.

Remington 7600 or 760 is far from junk, they are one of the more popular deer rifles around here 4 guys in my hunting group have them including myself, they are available in many good calibers and they are lightweight and far more reliable than the 7400 as far as I'm concerned, the autos are nice too but as Robo pointed out they aren't made to battle rifle type standards and over the years if you shoot a lot you will probably need to have a couple trips into your local smith.

I will make one comment about this and I'm out of it mosins are crapy guns that you have to take completely down and clean it the way you do a mosin and on top of that most of the ammo are corrosive and makes it a pita to clean but lots of people love them alright but i prefer good ol American rifles like the rem 740 7400 750 7600 700 win m70 model 94 and so on

Well a mosin isn't better then a 700 or Winchester m70. But IMO and experience with pump rifles I would choose a Mosin nagant over a pump rifle. And corrosive ammo isn't a big deal to me.

Like i said I love good ol American rifles because that's what I grow up with and I would trade a mosin for a 760 in a heart beat but that's me and everybody has different options

The economics of the trade alone make it stupid not to do the deal, if you don't want a semi auto or pump gun so what, sell it and go buy 3 mosins. As far as I'm concerned a Mosin isn't "better" than anything, it is what it is, a cheap gun which shoots cheap ammo fairly well, it is a mil surp gun with a little historical value, they also shoot oddball ammo which is currently cheap and available but may not always be and they are somewhat heavy compared to most sporting guns. They don't even compare to any of the American hunting rifles as far as I'm concerned. I would consider any offering from Remington, Winchester, Ruger, Browning, Savage, Marlin along with the 1903 Springfield and the M1 garand or M1A to be "better" than any Mosin, but that is just my opinion.

What pump rifles have you shot and what was it about them which makes you hate them so if I might ask?

The main reasons I traded were mosin was to heavy, to long (hard to maneuver in a deer blind), and it has a weird safety. The 7400 that I got is 5-6''over half the height it has a normal safety and is MUCH lighter. The mosin was a pretty good rifle I have to admit, but it just want very practical for the application I needed it for.

I have used my 91/59 carbine mosin to hunt and its lighter than some modern rifles. It has a 20'' barrel. If you cant find quality non corrosive ammo to hunt with its because you didnt look. I can get S&B 180gr for less than $20 a box and its good ammo. The safety is weird but easy to operate, at least on the three I have. If you do shoot corrosive ammo and think its a pain to clean your just lazy. It takes about 2 min. to take 2 screws out, take the bolt out, and run water down the barrel and chamber. After that clean as usual. I have killed deer at 200+ yards with mine, as far as Im concerned its a pretty good hunting rifle for less than $200. Im just sayin.
