I would have to disagree, the vast majority of mosins on the market came to the market in unissued SURPLUS, condition. While the same rifles were used you will very rarely find one that was actually used in the war bc those rifles were used hard and are most likely rusted.

Sorry, have to disagree. Not many Russian rifles in existence during WWII sat in storage...they were mostly issued and were in fact scarce. Many conscripts were issued ammo and had to salvage a rifle off of the battle field.

Many were, to be honest, arsenal refurbished during the 50s...many of these are what is now flooding the market, surplus...yes; unissued...maybe if you are lucky but mostly no.

I agree with Jpyle. It is EXTREMELY rare to find an unissued mosin. Mine was made in 1939, so there is a 99.99% chance that it was used by a Soviet soldier who may, or may not have survived the war.
