I keep hearing that...

I guess most of the people in Arizona are more interested in modern guns..
It seems you guys are always telling me Im stealing these rifles...

Ive never paid over $300 for a Arisaka, my Enfield was $200 with bayonet and ammo, I traded a $200 Arisaka for a M39, Traded a SKS for a 1903..
My best deal yet? A Medusa for a 870 shotgun..

I guess im lucky?

A Mosin M44? You can find them at gun shows, your local gun stores and pawn shops, online you can find them from Century Arms and other websites like AIM surplus, Gunbroker, Buds, the armory, just google M44 Mosin Nagant for sale and you'll get hundreds of things. Also check Armslist (my favorite), you can narrow it down to city and price and things like that.

You guys really want to know why I like the Arisakas so much?

As far as I know, its the only battle rifle you can tell if it was battlefield pickup...
2 of mine have mums and no import markings, so chances are pretty good that they are.

My Type 38 with a ground mum was a older rifle that was used in a school, it has "ARCH DEE 45" carved in the stock, still has the dust cover, sling, and cleaning rod. Im thinking because it still has all the accessories, ground mum, and the carving of who and when took it, I can be pretty sure it was brought home after WWII during the occupation.
My T38 carbine was sporterized but still had the mum, so Im thinking it got brought home and became a hunting rifle..
Lastly my T99, I dont think the Japanese solider who carried it did very well, besides for some finish that was worn off the stock, the gun looked brand new, I havent even put a 100 rds thought it yet, and I put more wear on the bolt than it had when I got it....

Wow that's really really cool!, my Carbine (1943) has someone's initials carved in the stock, and my Enfield (1944)has stock repairs and seen some weather and most likely was deployed during the Breakout from Normandy. But I could be wrong. My ultimate goal is to get a battlefield pickup Mosin with no import marks and a battlefield pickup(or Russian capture-same aspect) K98 with bayonet.
