Just bought a "new" Mosin Nagant 91/30 today from Riverview, Can't wait to get her out on the range... I really believe it is the best 100 bucks you can spend on a rifle... My buddy put one of the original sniper Mosins on layaway, all original only $550! they are usually 700+. If anyone is looking for a great deal on a great piece of history check out Riverview.

Also anyone else have a Mosin?

Hey Chef, enjoy that mosin! I picked up one up at the end of last year and it really is a blast to shoot. Look at thearmory.com for some surplus ammo and you can be shooting it for under 20 cents a round. Its pretty amazing how accurate they can be for a 60 year old 100 dollar rifle.

My son bought one last year. It is a nice shooting gun and really accurate for open sights. I shot it awhile back. A 12" gong at two hundred yards. Hit it eight times out of eight shots I think it was.

The Russians had some tough rifles.The Mosin has been around since WW2 or
before?The SKS I think around 1947 or so.I saw one that was early and had
a milled reciever!Than of corse the AK-47.The Mosin is from the WW2 area when
a round had to go through a 6 inch log at 5 or 600 yards!We had the 30-06 and
the Britts the 303.The Germans were still with the Mod 98 in 7+8 MM.All big rounds.
When someone figured out you could carry three times the ammo they went to
the 762x39 and the 223.

Yeah... I would not want to be on the receiving end of any of those WWII guns... well any gun for that matter, but you know what I mean. They pack quite a punch. I think it's awesome that the Mosin comes with a bayonet... How many guns come with that? hahahaha

My father just picked up a 1891/30 and we just learned how to break it down / clean it up. I haven't shot it yet but he brought it to the Glastonbury range this past weekend. I can't wait to hear the report on how well it shot.

I want to buy one every time I see them just because they are so cheap but I'm not a huge fan of my sks I'll probably end up selling it at some point just because I never use it anymore. I have a feeling that's what would happen a year or 2 down the road if I bought one of those....

But $100 is wicked cheap for any gun!

I can't wait to get mine to the range... gotta do some hardcore cleaning first (obviously) that will be interesting... lol
