I was reading a book about Steyr-Mannlichers last week and many of the earlier models before the M95 had mag cut offs as well.

Thanks Trez! I appreciate it, it comes with 20 rounds of ammo on stripper clips and a bandolier. No bayonet, but I've seen bayonets for $50 or so.

Is there a difference of value from a MkIII* and a MkIII?

Hi, my name is Bill, and I have Mosinitus.

It all started when a friend of mine showed

me a 91/30, and said, hey, you have to get

one of these, and try shooting it at the range.


Well, the next thing you know, I'm at the range

with my war-surplus Mosin. I realize it's a pretty

solid rifle, and fires a manly round, overall a very

well made firearm.

I found myself sneaking away from the family after

dinner to monitor information and pictures on the internet.

When I spent my car insurance premium on a mint M-44

at ***broker.com, I was a little apprehensive, and felt

a little guilty, but I kept telling myself I could handle it.

As the extra Mosins started piling up, and the bills started

going unpaid on a regular basis, it was obvious to me that

I was being irresponsible, but I just kept justifying all my

expenditures on ammo, Mosins, and those little accessory

packages. But the situation was steadily spiraling out of

control. I was completely in denial, and started blaming

co-workers and friends for the problems which I had

manufactured for myself.

I finally realized I had hit bottom when I woke up behind

the garage with my pockets crammed with those combloc

two-sided oiler bottles, and covered with cartridge pouches

and instruction manuals, with a hex-Tula on my left arm,

and a Chinese T-53 on my right. I was covered in cosmoline,

and had no idea where I was, how I had gotten there, who

had sold me the rifles, or what had happened the night before...

Thanks, I feel so bad, because I've bought a lot of

milsurp rifles in the past, and I thought I could handle

it. When I bought my Garand, AK, Carcano, SKS, and

1911A1, I only bought one, and never had a problem.

Probably has something to do with the $100 price tag, little buggers are so cheap they practically follow you home. I got a 1942 Tula for my birthday last year, my first one. (Mosin not birthday)

I've been itching for a hex or an M44 here lately. Starting to get that Arisaka fever too.

I take it that the OP does not have spell check.
