Now we're talking! At last count I had about 4 old Mosin Nagents - including the nice Finn model 39 rebuild. A Finn capture 91/30, a 38, a 44 and said Finn 39. If youse guys are gonna talk about Mosins, here's where you can look up some of the stuff:

This fellow has a pretty good collection of those nice Finnish Mosin rebuilds I mentioned (the Finn's captured a ton of Russian rifles when they threw Russia out, and rebuilt rifles to their own - more demanding specs - from the old guns. Some of 'em are old enough that you don't have to go thru a gun shop, they're antiques)

Some info on the variations:

Welcome to the feeding frenzy. They're not as cheap as when I started but the Rooshian's turn theirs loose in clean, reblued and rebuilt mode so I prefer their stuff for the money. The Chinese stuff is rough as a cob these days - we don't import many guns from China since Clinton got pissy with 'em. The Finn stuff is spendy - but usually very nice. Good hunting!

PS - if it doesn't HAVE to be an 80 year old Rooshian rifle, if you're just looking for a decent buy on a surplus rifle - these Yugoslavian m48 mausers were built after WWII and put in storage in case we attacked 'em - they haven't been thru a war, so they're in better shape. I picked one up a few years ago for $200-ish, they'll be more this week while everyone has Obamamania but they're a pretty sweet old rifle for the money. 8mm Mauser, no longer big surplus available but new stuff certainly is available.
