What would you guys suggest would be good starting points.
Ask here! Mosin Nagants were built by the Russians/Soviets, the U.S., China, and Finland. (Finland was part of Russia at one time)
Mausers were made everywhere, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Yugoslavia, Czech Republic, Belgium, Turkey, China, Siam, and the U.S.
I could write for days on the Mauser.'88's, '93's, '94's, '95's, '96's, '98's, 1916, M38, FR7 and FR8. intermediate action, standard action, small ring, large ring....
Since you know what a fiddlehead is your from the North East I would guess. Stop by some day and I can show you.
They are still made. http://www.mauser.com/Rifles.61.0.html?&L=1

The Mosin Nagant is also a good rifle and the 7.62 x 54R is a good round too. So, are these rifles they are currently selling worth buying? And what about the Yugoslavian SKS, from what research I've been doing on the internet it seems the Russian and Romainian seem to be the more sought after, they certainly are more expensive. I've fired the Chinese version of the SKS and it was a fun rifle to shoot with plenty of aftermarket accessories to trick it out, can this be done with the Yugo and Romainian SKS's?.


I think these are Yugo Mausers. One day I'm going to pull all of these guns out of the vault and tag them. I've had these guns for 30+ years and don't know the value of any of them. I have over 100 guns and it's hard to keep up with the older one's. These guns haven't been shot in 30 years, but I pay a college kid to clean them. I keep my Colts and newer guns in safes at another secret location only known by the wife and me.

Hey Barney that top rifle you pictured is a Type 99 Arisaka..

i think p.o. ackley did the blow-up tests and it was on a later type 99, but not a last ditch. the final test had a bullet jammed into the bore and loaded round fired (from a distance, with a lanyard). the bolt couldn't be hammered open, so the barrel was taken off...ackley found the action intact with not even any set-back of the bolt lugs; he gave the action to a friend who built a sporter with it.

i believe ackley also wrote of a fellow gunsmith with a customer who brought a gun in saying, "it shot awful hard". the gun was a sporterized type 38 chambered for .30-06...but with a 6.5mm bore. that's a tough gun!

Anything that is not original, such as a stock that is fantastic plastic.

As jp stated, altering the gun in any way is sporterizing it. It's usually the stock, sights, or barrel that is altered.

Here's a sporterized Mosin
