Gun shows by far in my opinion, just know what you are looking at, so as not to be sweet talked into a bad deal. I get all my milsurps at gunshows if I can help it.

Actually I think (Pawn Shops) are the best. I have gotten some of my best Milsurp`s at the best prices at pawn shops.

Pawn shops, or gun shops owned by morons. I have found quite a few at the later. Other then Mosin Nagants, you better have a full wallet.

You can also troll the auction sites like Gunbroker.com and Auctionarms.com

I've got a local pawn shop that usually has a great sellection of C&R (Curio & Relic) guns for sale. I've noticed lately that some of his stock is being ordered from the same supplier that I order my stuff from so they're marked up much higher for example: Mosin Nagant 91/30's that I can get for $79 marked to $129 etc. What I would suggest is look at sites like AIMsurplus, Century Arms Int., SOG or other wholesalers like that, get a ball park idea of what they're going for and add 10% for a fair deal on a milsurp rifle. Anything more and you might be getting taken advantage of (and I mean at the gunshow)...

I like pawn shops.......even if the price is reasonable, I always ask "is this the best you can do?"........9 out of 10 times they will knock something off.

What's your general area, OP?

There's a great Milsurp place here in Tampa...
