Hey I am looking at a Mosin as I said. It is going for $99 at Big5. The sale ends this Sunday, it is usually priced at $180. They have 2 left, they only had one on display, and it is a clearance sale. I want to know if I should be jumping out of my pants for this gun. I know that it is a very reliable gun (from what I've heard). Unfortunantly I didn't pay attention to the markings on the rifle, all that I remember was that 1975 was stamped on the rifle and the barrel and reciever seemed to have the same markings on them. I checked prices on other posts on here but they were all pre election and I was wondering if the was a good Post election price. It looked in good condition and if it does require some maintnence I would like it if it was not too difficult to do repairs on it. Sinse this is time sensitive I would appriciate the feed back to be as soon as possible. Also they have two rifles if I do decide to buy one, I would also like some tips on how to decide between the two if it should come to that. I know its a lot of question but I really respect every ones oppinion on here. Thanks.
