I owned one many years ago! I had bought it for $8.95 in very good condition! It was a fine shooter and accurate enough at 300 yards. The 7.62x54 round compares to 30-06, 303 etc. and easy to find surplus and new manufacture. Go for it and have a good time!Hey guys, I'm a avid gun collector and recently ive thought about purchasing a Russian Mosin Nagant, Ive heard some very good things about this gun, but sadly i dont know much about it detail wise. If any of you are familiar with this firearm and can give me some specs of it, such as effective range, modifications, etc. that would be greatly appreciated. Hit the link for some info on the gun if your not very familiar with it.
