Default I could make some serious money

Funny story I have for you fine folks.

Today I stopped in at a Pawn shop to see if they had any Marlins. I see a mosin nagant and asked home much. The guy tells me $350. I say wow for a mosin that's crazy. He turns and looks at me and tells me it's not a mosin it's a sks. I say let me see that thing. It's year was 1939, it says chambered in 7.62x54r, it even said model 91/30 on it. I pointed it out to him and also told him there is no sks in the world that is bolt action. He took it back and continues to tell me it's a sks.

Now if I wanted I cold take my mosin up there and tell him it's a Remy 700 and with the scope I could probably get $500-$600 easy. This just amazes me how dumb some folks are and the arrogance of them.

Couldn't they as a legitimate business get in trouble for that

Miss representation sure but I'm sure as a pawn its " buyer beware" regardless. Very shady and probably not a shop I'd go back to

Clearly even I can tell the Difference from a BOLT Mosin and a Semi-Auto SKS.....

Does the lawn shop have the same requirements as an ffl?
It'll be awfully hard to account for an SKS being in the book and not in the inventory.
I would avoid that place.
