That is a very excellent fine, especially at a pawn shop. I need to do some pawn shop searching!

I have seen some of the most overpriced junk labeled a gun at pawnshops and also found some of the sweetest deals ever at pawnshops.

Seems as though time of the month makes a big difference...if it is around the middle when alot of folks are pawning/selling, they may below on cash flow and need to sell off some inventory to stay out of the red...I do like to go in around the 10th to 15th to see what people have brought in to finish paying that months bills...

Wow, you did goood. Usually in this day and age, pawn shops are not easy to deal with. I can remember back east, the first customer on a Monday AM could deal. They felt that rest of the week would be crap if they missed that first sale? Some of the ones lately have valuable junk, so they feel they should be priced new. Still own some of those good old days buys, and cringe at today's higher less better made stuff.

Those are both excellent rifles. The K31 for fast action and great accuracy. The M39 is the best generally available Mosin ever made, top notch barrels and stocks.You done right good. Read up on Simo Hayha, the top scoring combat marksman of all time, used a M28 Mosin, which is very similar to the M39. Here is a link to a sort of accurate, tongue in cheek, description of Hayha's exploits.

I'm wanting a K31 so bad it hurts. How about the ammo for one? Hard to find, decent prices?

Default Pawn Shop....Free Gun! just sign the form its yours!

Couple years back a customer came in the local pawn shop with some old guns of her fathers she dident want and made a deal with the pawn shop operater, all or nothing.
so he took in the package deal a Milsurp sporter he dident really want in the trade.
I came in after work and He askd me what I knew of Mausers? I said ther mainly made in germany and shoot metric ctg's, he said If I wanted get that damn eye sore outta his shop so as not to scare off customers, he'd give me it for free.......a alll matching 1891 Argentine Mauser in 7.65mm Argentine mfg DWM Berlin in 1900. williams peep receiver, date on stock (bondo fill sling inlet is 1974)
The crest is ground off and the thought of reconfiguring is in back my mind then again its so damn sporty looking its loaded with Bush Alaska History I cant change that.
