where can i fined the cheapest mosin nagant
Probably aim surplus. Maybe jgsales.
J&G has had them for $79.00 + shipping for several years. Theirs include the accessories as well. You should be able to find one for $100.00 otd at most gun shows which might be cheaper.
Wanna point out, jgsales generally gets great reviews, never dealt with them myself.
I got mine from AIM Surplus last month for $79 but they charge a $15 handling fee.
The gun was a 1939 and was in great condition. I was able to put 20 rnds thru it and it shot great. Sure is a fun gun to shoot.
Check with your local gun shop . You may find they can get one in so you can see and feel for the same 95 dollar range ,or less. We can at others.
Why would you want it ?
The real question is, why the hell not? Cheap rifle, many cases less than $100, reasonably accurate, cheap ammo. It's heavy, not too pretty, and generally not as accurate as a brand new in box hunting rifle of a reputable maker, but damn, it's less than half the price of a savage axis or weatherby vanguard and still does the job.
Personally, in a bolt action rifle, I'd like to have a new model 70 (or a pre '64, but these new ones are supposed to be a throwback with CRF), but I don't have 800 laying around for a rifle of my choice that will only get used regularly for about 1 month a year.
Then why not build something you would want to shoot more than one month a year. Don't throw your money away. Keep an eye on your local pawn shop.
I didn't say "shoot" I said "used regularly" meaning my rifle sees the most use during hunting season. It gets "shot" about once a month or so, not enough for me to justify a higher end rifle when the mosin serves my purpose admirably and then some.
As far as building something, I am taking that into consideration and thinking of building a PSA AR, possibly going for something as close to the M16A2 I was issued in boot camp as I can get. If you look at the budget AR thread, you can see the parts I have picked out, a 20" rifle kit and stripped lower. Incidentally, the only tool I have on the list is a butt stock wrench. Would you know of anything else that I would need if I decided to go that route?
This isn't about me anyway, it's 1911beast who's looking at a Mosin. I just happen to like the rifle, and I don't consider it to be throwing money away.
Apologies, it's the "inexpensive AR" thread, found here http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f20/inexpensive-ar-15-a-55564/
Love the Mosin. Got a pretty '39 Tula arsenal with all serials matching for $85. She looks brand new. Got to hand pick her out of a group of 100+
