Those rifles and parts etc. were sold in Shotgun News in the 1960s for under $100 dollars. The Russian ammo was scarce back then. Some were barreled to 7X57 and shortened for saddle carbines. I wish I had bought one.

I had a 1895 In .30 US, but sold it..

Very cool. I'd love to add one, but doubt it will happen.

Thanks for sharing.

Is this the same cartridge as the Mosin? 7.62x54 I think?

In about 1958 ye olde hunter in alex va was selling these for 49.95 -
they had a peck of them at their warehouse store --
Most were in rather poor condition but the big problem was -- I did not have 49.95 so I bought a 7mm remington rolling block for 4.95 --guaranteed to have pancho villas finger prints on it --

they also had a big pile of berdan I and IIs ----
oh, and a boyes 55cal anti-tank for about $75 -

journeyman wages of about $3/hr did not stretch far enough for these goodies.
