So Seeing I Had 10 Mosin Nagants.......
 
....and only 1 Steyr M95. I traded a guy a MN M38 straight up for this Steyr Bulgarian 1903 contract M95. The Mosin only cost me 80 bucks when I bought it, and was counterbored, mis-matched and force matched, but did have a nice lammy stock.

Plus it was the second least accurate Mosin I owned.

If both parties of the trade are happy, it's a good deal. But dude, you got the better end of this deal by far! :cool:

+1 The Steyrs are SOOO underrated in my opinion. They may kick like a mule but are high on my C&R coolness list. The straight pull action is very quick. I got mine as part of a batch of 5 rifles I bought on gunbroker (all 5 sold together as a for parts sale). The seller said this one had a broken bolt ( lol ) He did not realize it was a straight pull. The rifle was whole and matching and turned out beautifully after I restored it.

Good trade on your part..

Dang things are like potato chips - you can't have just one..... :rolleyes:

You pick up an Austrian 95, and all of a sudden you have to have a Budapest as well. Buy a 91/30, then you end up with a half dozen M44's. Crazy stuff!
(Hey, who can pass up 3-fers at $45 a pop?) :D

Still just have the austrian but it's a bute and a prize in my collection.. I'd like to have the others but there are sooo many other firearms to collect ( lol )..

Only have 9 Mosin Nagants in my collection... 5 91/30's (one is an all matching ORIGINAL sniper) 2 M44's and 1 M38 then I have the officers model revolver =)

That is one beautiful rifle!! :D

Do you do the restoration on it? If so, what did you seal the stock with? :confused:
