    Well, my PA63 9x18 Makarov pistol has been traded off, but in it's place I now own something that will be alot more useful to me here in Montana.

    Mosin-Nagant 91/30 Rifle in 7.62x54R

    Thanks. I figured something that was an instrumental part in driving the Nazis away from Stalingrad might be a little more useful and dependable than a little dinky Makarov pistol...lol.

    I wish there was a way to track this rifle's history to see if it ever saw any combat or not.

    So just how many of those MNs did you get for your PA63? At least two or three, right?

    The PA63 is only worth about 100-140 dollars (in very good condition) on the internet and at gun shops, so I got one MN for my PA63.

    Hmmm, they've always been around $200 in my area. Thanks for the info. The MNs are always on sale for about $99 at Big 5.

    The benefit of having a Curio & Relic license is that you are able to take advantage of those Internet Sales.

    By the time you pay shipping & dealer fees to your local FFL, you've eaten up the "Deal" and paid $200 for a $100-150 gun.

    Bottom line, GETCHER C&R LICENSE!! :)
