    A Mosin Nagant for $70?

    Any opinions on the Mosin?

    Yup, not bad, depending, of course. Read thru the monkey gun threads for opinions, plenty there to chew on. Also, refer to 7.62X54r.net for more info than you can stand.

    I have 3, but I paid over $119.00 each for mine, all hand select, hex receivers.
    Durable, and accurate as can be expected for this older caliber and rifle. Very nice knock down power. Similar to an '06.
    Try this site also: J&G sales.com for a bunch, run $69.99 to more, depends on what you want.
    Ammo prices have doubled here in past 3 months, nice selection of russian, yugoslavian, etc, FMJ and soft point.
    Kicks pretty good too. I suggest a nice butt pad.

    Like any old gun, Mosins can be very good to very bad - depends on condition. If you can, inspect it in person before buying.
    It also depends on whether you want a shooter or a collector - I put more importance on bore condition and functionality than in great looks. I don't care much about who built it or particular marks.
    I like to 'acquire' a good example of each of several basic variations, but I want each to shoot a reasonable group with no hangups.

    Mosins..... the Lays Potato Chips of the gun world - you can't have just one!

    no inspection before I'd buy. I already decided against it. I don't feel like bringing in a new caliber, besides getting an antique weapon.

    However If I didn't already have a weapon I'd have already gotten this.

    1 good thing about J&G Sales, you can buy from them and pay an additional fee for bore and such being inspected before shipping to you...and "if" you are not satisfied, they will replace or refund you money!
    I had to return 1 of mine, as the rifle had been "counterbored" and it was done at the "arsenal", and they cracked the crown on the muzzle...They took it back and shipped me another in a week! Good people, and no hassles.....
    I like dealing with them as you call, or email, and they answer right away!
    They even gave me a break of 20% for the trouble with the rifle, and applied it to my order of 2 tins (880 rounds) of 7.62x54r

    Actually if you have a group this would be a good buy. As long as you could get enough ammo

    Milsurp ammo is pretty cheap these days, especially relative to new mfrd stuff. Almost any gun show will have a stock of Bulgarian still in the cans.
