    I was thinking about getting a Mosin-Nagant for my birthday and was wondering what model is the cheapest?

    91/30. Available just about anywhere for around $100 with the bayonet,sling,oil bottle and ammo pouch. For an extra $80 you get get a "spam can" of 440rds.

    I would but I live in PRK and don't have a C&R or a pistol license.

    If you live in the Smyrna, GA area you can buy a 91/30 and M44 or $140 that includes bayonet, oil canister, ammunition pouch, the rifle. Stripper clips would be a major convenience, they're maybe $5 a pack of 5.

    Unfortunately I live in California and don't have the luxury of good gun prices.

    IMHO, shoot a Mosin M44 before you buy.

    SO MUCH more, for a little bit more...

    The 91/30 is the longer sniper rifle, but the M44 is the carbine although the M44 has a flip out bayonet and the 91/30 has a bayonet you must attach and take off. The M44 is sited with the bayonet.

    There's a little more to it than that.

    The M44 being carbine length, is a great truck gun, or wonderful

    for facing down wild boar, as you have your close-in defense bolted

    on.

    Also, firing the same caliber, 7.62 x 54R the muzzle blast, report, and recoil

    are more like a magnum than a 30.06. Many parts,(stock and bayonet,

    and barrel excluded) are interchangeable.

    Mostly, there's a big fun factor involved. YMMV
