    ....and only 1 Steyr M95. I traded a guy a MN M38 straight up for this Steyr Bulgarian 1903 contract M95. The Mosin only cost me 80 bucks when I bought it, and was counterbored, mis-matched and force matched, but did have a nice lammy stock.

    Plus it was the second least accurate Mosin I owned.

    If both parties of the trade are happy, it's a good deal. But dude, you got the better end of this deal by far! :cool:

    +1 The Steyrs are SOOO underrated in my opinion. They may kick like a mule but are high on my C&R coolness list. The straight pull action is very quick. I got mine as part of a batch of 5 rifles I bought on gunbroker (all 5 sold together as a for parts sale). The seller said this one had a broken bolt ( lol ) He did not realize it was a straight pull. The rifle was whole and matching and turned out beautifully after I restored it.

    Good trade on your part..

    Dang things are like potato chips - you can't have just one..... :rolleyes:

    You pick up an Austrian 95, and all of a sudden you have to have a Budapest as well. Buy a 91/30, then you end up with a half dozen M44's. Crazy stuff!
    (Hey, who can pass up 3-fers at $45 a pop?) :D

    That is one beautiful rifle!! :D

    Do you do the restoration on it? If so, what did you seal the stock with? :confused:

    Came to me that way. But he also got a just freshly gel coat stained, sanded, finished with 10 coats of Tung oil and 2 coats of poly-vinyl on the laminated M38 stock from me.

    Find yourself a Finnish Mosin like a M27 or M39... It changed my mind about the lowly Mosin...... :p

    Lowly? I don't know about that but it is sure the cheapest .30 cal rifle you can buy that actually shoots decent.

    I'll take that at 100 yards with the iron sights any day of the week. The rifle was like $150 with the shipping!

    And I have a couple of comparative Mosins almost that accurate at $69.99 each. How much were your Mausers?
