    Oooooo boy my mother and grandmother are thinking about getting me a gun for my birthday now since well...that's what I like to collect now.


    My friend just recently got a Hex Mosin in from aim for 100 dollars and it's damn nice...lots of package stuff on it though so they had to clean it.

    First question...is the Hex better I guess? My brother owns a round one from 1943....I kinda prefer the WW2 one myself...but IDK maybe you can tell me.

    Either way

    Here's the deal...it's either a Mosin from AIM

    A CZ 82 from Classic Arms

    Or....if I can penny push them...some type of AK-47....really I'm leaning towards the CZ-82...just because I'm a CZ aholic.

    We are getting it through C&R so it would be great to have it appear on the front door somewhere...haha...either way...what do you think?

    With the MOSIN I could probably use the rest of the cash to buy a case of 800 rounds of ammo....but with the CZ...when I get older it would be my carry weapon...and we already have a Mosin Downstairs...but it's my brothers.

    Tough call, I love both. A hex reciver isn't necessarily better, but is rarer.

    CZ gets the edge for me, and is an excellent carry piece.:cool:

    Yeah, I've also heard that a hex reciever is more rare than a round one. I think they made the hex for a couple of years before they made the round ones but I could be wrong on that note. I've also been told that a Mosin made in 1943 is rare also, I heard they didn't make very many that year. That one looks like a nice one, I'm in fact thinking of adding a 91/30 to my collection, even though I already have an M44.

    Also, just a little warning Jiro, stay away from Bulgarian ammunition. I bought 300 rounds for $40 bucks last year and have had a lot of split cases. I even found a couple which were split right out of the tin, not even fired yet. I've also had a couple split enough when fired that my bolt wouldn't withdrawl from the reciever. I've heard that the Bulgarian ammo is not that great and Russian ammo is of better quality. Just my $0.02!!!:D

    Do you have any handguns now? If not get the CZ. The 82 is one of the best semi auto handguns ever produced and it is an excellent carry pistol.

    The family has for the house in my room my S&W .357....more than likely not a carry piece as of how big it is (of course I'm leaning towards having that as my main pistol when I'm older...and a Mak pistol being a backup).

    Tsk, tsk, tsk.... The Mak should be your primary carry. Leave the S&W as your house gun. That's the way I do it.

    Well I like having a gun that I know will knock someone on their butt from one shot. So will the CZ but either way....I want to have a Revolver and some type of Clip pistol as my two carries just incase I have a jam.

    Nothing wrong with that. In fact I was really considering getting a Tokarev from Classic Arms when my refund comes. Sounds like a good price on ammo there too.

    I don't trust the Tokarev...no good safety and known to slam fire from dropping.

    The CZ-52 is far superior and is sometiems cheaper...get a titanium firing pin and go to town.

    I did consider that once. A little bit ugly, but actually finding and holding one convinced me to look for something else!!! :D Too heavy. Not good to carry for sure....

    Why the ell would you carry a Torkarev? It's the same length...or is width your killer?

    Well, in the event you miss the BG, you can doink him in the forehead with it. :D

    Seriously, Jiro, for a gift, go with the CZ. Spend your own $ on the Mosin. :)

    We'll the 52 would hurt a lot more on the bad guys noggin.

    Yeah I'm going for the CZ 82.

    There will always be Mosins...82 will dry up eventually.

    Yep we're getting the 82.

    We'll be spending 250 cash after shipping and tax and trouble for our shipper and deliverer (old family friend).

    Which is cheaper than shipping to an FFL or buying it from the local gun shop for 279 so YAY!

    I love the CZ...hehehe.

    Who's got extra ammo I can steal from....I mean...borrow from them and send the brass back?

    Our new CZ 82. Now that I've held it I can see several similarity between it and my brother's PO-1 as the slide is almost exactly the same at least in my eyes...just not internal...this one is external....I think at least.

    This came with a sweet package

    Takes 3 seconds to field strip

    Nice to see you're happy with what you have. Now, Classic Arms just changed hands. How long did it take from placing the order to receiving it?

    2 days by air since pistols have to go by air

    They were slammed with orders all last week. Luckily we got one in right before my birthday and it came in the night before it.

    Now they have an online shop....but something worries me about that...like it's going to become to robotic. I got my CZ the classic phone call way.

    Only cost me 260 after shipping and getting it from our C&R neighbor.

    Good to hear there wasn't any delay in processing.

    Maybe I'll order that Tokarev from them after all. And if it doesn't work, I guess I can use it to hit people over the head....:p
