    Got a chance to buy a Mosin Nagant M91/30.

    They're including the bayonet and accessory pack with a hard case

    $275.00

    opinions?

    Unless it has some verifiable historical significance its about $140 too much. Plain vanilla 91/30s usually go for about $130. Is it a Finnish Mosin?

    *sigh*

    I was afraid of that...disappointed, I really wanted it, but I won't get ripped off twice in one week =)

    I want another old rifle damnit ... and I've already blown about 2,000 bucks in the last week on guns ...Auctions can be ... fun ... and I got the feeling this one will be the last my wife lets me get, and it's gotta be ~200-300

    oh well, back to the drawing board!

    Thank you for saving me from another bad buy

    Yep, these guys won't steer ya wrong...

    IMHO the Mosins are like .22's, every gun owner should have one...

    Built like tanks and will outlive you if you take care of it...

    The surplus ammo is dirt cheap but corrosive, nothing a little hot soapy water can't fix...

    They have a 'cool factor' to them as they are a big part of history...

    They are addictive as all getout, if you buy one I guarantee you it won't be your last...

    Only bad thing is that our beloved gubmint is trying to block importation of them so they may or may not be as readily available in the future. IIRC they are being destroyed in Europe as we speak...

    And if you DON'T get one, ima kick you right square in the nutz!!! :D

    Here's a great source of reliable info...

    .46 a round? Did ammo prices spike on it too? I bought a 440 rd spam can of it for $90 shipped earlier this year. It was only .20 a round.

    Just checked Ammoengine, they don't even have any spam cans for sale!!!

    WTF?????

    EDIT-Here's the Wideners link. The price is right but they are out of stock...(I've never used the match ammo before...)

    edit:


    I did just notice the "corrosive" ammo comes in about 23 cents a round - never used corrosive ammo before ... I'm assuming as long as you strip your rifle after use, it's no problem at all?

    Yep, just hot soapy water then clean like normal with oil...

    I think I read once the soldiers used to pee down the bbl to clean it in the field...so you have that option too!! :D
