    I found a mosin nagant 44 at a local shop for $200. Look to be in good shape, has bayonet and sling. I know next to nothing about this type of rifle buy my gut says the price is a bit high.

    Is that price in the range or not?

    I think if you get them to drop $50 off the price it would be good, I got my 91/30 for $100 with everything but just to me $150 for a M44 isn't that bad at all.

    I just priced gun broker and they have a few just over $200.

    I want to put a scope on it and I am going to ask if they will throw in the scope mount for free. It is $30 in the store so saves me a little.

    Checked the rilfe it is a Romania 1954 model. All the an match but firm at $200 and they don't have ammo in stock so I can't shoot it for 2 weeks.

    200$ doesn't sound too bad for one in good shape.

    They are famous for being covered in about a

    quart of cosmoline, so field strip it, before you

    clean it, so you don't goop up the sling and

    stock, like I did.

    They're 100-125 all day long. And ammo is everywhere on the net. I wouldn't wait two weeks

    It is customary to post a link when making such assertions. ;)

    But I'm not a liberal, therefore I refuse to think for other people ;)

    Local forums, national forums, retail outlets, etc.

    I picked one up for my brother for $125. Cabelas regularly has 91/30's for $99 and m44 for 125. I (I) would not pay $200.

    The store wanted $230 for 880 rounds but I don't want to wait that long. Did find this site for ammo

    FMJ AMMO : Ammunition To Go

    I might have over paid for the rifle but it is a piece of history and if I like it like I think I will there is a 91-30 in my futrue

    What is stamped on the receive dictate price. If it is stamped 02, it would be Hungarian, worth $200.00. Receiver pic please.

    I am thinking about refinishing the wood on the rifle.

    The color is fading a bit from normal handling and just thought it would look nicer if I even it up. But don't want to kill the historical value

    Looks good.

    Might I suggest some boiled linseed oil (hand rubbed) for your stock.
    Along with tung oil, linseed oil is a traditional stock treatment.

    I also suggest firing your rifle near sundown occasionally in order the witness the massive fireball emanating from the muzzle...good times!

    :D
