Default pawn shop find!....

i went out this morning to cash my crappy pay check & stopped off @ a near by pawn shop that just opened not to far from the bank...

i was checking out some guitars & started to make a deal on a sweet dean ''dime o'flame'' guitar & i notice that this pawnbroker didnt have any guns,so i asked him if he had any?,he said that he has a few in the back that he hasnt put any prices on them yet!....when i asked him what he had he said a few shotguns,1 22lr rifle,& a couple of old mil-surplus rifles...i asked if i could see the surplus rifles?he said sure....

well,as fate would have it...he had a very rough SKS;i passed

then he shows me a very nice K31....i asked what he had to have for it?
but then i noticed a nice M39 mosin....

he said he'dd take 350+tax for both...not to bad but....i was in a dealing mood...we started talking about FFL's & guns,guitars,girls,ect...i didnt think he would go for the price that i would throw at him...but when he said 'OK' well....this is what followed me home for $250.00 no tax!!!!

The K31's are going for more than $250 alone is many places! Great score.

the K31 is in really great shape...but this aint uncommon

the M39 is also in great shape...its SA marked & all # matching!!the barrel slugs @ .308' pretty tight right?....might get a chance to load up some .309 lead slugs for the M39 when all my yard work is done,so i can keep the miss's happy

now i have shoot up most of my GP-11 ammo using my other K31,have no money for ammo right now! plenty of grafsnsons brass for the K31 but i was saving my .308 bullets for the 1903

kinda thinking about that SKS now...it was a russian made SKS...but it looked like someone brought it up from the ocean
maybe i should have threw out a number?...wouldnt have mattered much,as im broke at the moment
the way i see dealing...dont make a deal,& then not have what your dealing w/ on you....

Sounds like something my dad would have done. He had a similar steal years ago where he managed to pull a Kar 98 and a Nagant for $40 each. Granted they were filty, but after some TLC they looked great. The shop owner had no idea what they were and my dad is a real smooth talker, he even somehow gets away with haggling at walmart and other such stores...
