Default Too many Mosins? No such thing!

As cheap as they are (I'm talkin' cost, not quality) you can never have too many. I currently have 3 91\30s and 2 m44s. both 44s are shooters and 2 of the 91\39s are shooters as well. The third is a parts gun ( worst bore I have ever had the displeasure of seeing!). One of my LGS\mil surp stores has a case of 91\30s for $2,000.00 and individual rifles in the $90 to $130 range. Now if I can just convince the wife.....

Quick question. Should I use the parts one for a new build or keep it for parts? I know the russians made some pretty sweet competion and hunting rifles out of them back in the 60s and 70s. Any thoughts?

Default In the end how much is enuf

I'd say Mosins are like women, there are many out there and not all fit what you are looking for, But when you find 'THE ONE' all the others are wall flowers'


In the end it only takes one favorite.

I felt as if I was the Genji Hikaru of firearms http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tale_of_Genji , I loved allot of them all but still in the end I my favorite came from humble stock (Murasaki) the one I made just for me a P-27 tomato stake (her name is Lotta) she's old and wears glass's to see better, dressed in her curve hugging tight sexy black dress, She's one sharp cookie to tango with, bobbing her a mite mader her tighter as well

I bought several T-53s dirt cheap and ended up with one with a barrel that was a smooth-bore, At 30 yards it would send the bullets sideways through the paper plate. (a neat effect actually) I broke it down and sold the parts on ebay for more than I paid for the rifle..... But, within a week, I needed some of the parts I sold and grumbled like the dickens over it. If you intend to collect these rifles, think long and hard about getting rid of the parts.

Yep. I always keep those extra " uneeded " parts anyway. I learned from my grandfather's mistake with his 1903 Springfeild. He sporteized it and threw away the bits he felt he didn't need. Made one sweet hunting rifle, but he killed the resale value.

If there is any high-powered rifle, that is factory reconditioned, accurate, reliable and historically significant, and also under $100.00, I don't know about it. If someone else does know of such a rifle, please fill me in. My theory is that any firearm that will consistently go bang every time I pull the trigger is worth $100.00.

The imports on these rifles will dry up. Interest in them has been growing for the last few years. The value of these rifles will never be less than what you pay. (unless you get skinned) I have already seen the M-44s go from $75.00 to over $200 in five years. Try making that kind of return in the stock market.

Every firearms enthusiast should own at least one M-91 and one M-44, but one case of each is better.
