Yo,

If I walk into Big 5, can i Cash and Carry a Mosin?

Also, if I do, do they sell the ammo??

No. In California, it is not legal for a 01 FFL to allow you to cash and carry unless you have a FFL yourself. Yes, they do sell ammo but, it's expensive.

I don't want to buy from there, and I'd much rather buy from a Calgunner to help them out....

Just wanted to know a bit more about it.

How do they shoot? Are they good for targets or also hunting?

I'm sure i'll learn more when I buy, but I guess i'm stubborn in that sense, I hear it's a great rifle to have.

Sure you can use them for target practice and hunting, but why ? lol . They are just good to have, a cool piece of history. If you are really into hunting or target practice then eventually you will buy a rifle just for that.

Big 5 has the ammo, but expect to pay $20 for 20 rounds.

Got two MN, both shoots great, one is stock, the other I use for hunting just because. Shoots great, I load my own ammo for it with pistol bullets. Great deer rifle and pretty accurate. Just not as accurate with Hi-power rounds, shoots surplus ammo but with crappy groups. My reloads gets a little over 1/2" groups at 50 yards.

Where do you hunt deer with your mosin? The reason that I ask is because you cant hunt deer in cali with a mosin due to the fact that is a rimfire cartridge. The law specifically says no rimfire for hunting big game. Or am I missing something?

''Rimmed'',not rimfire.The 7.62 x54 R[rimmed,sometimes given as Russian] is a centerfire cartridge.

Unless you have a Mosin for sale, I'd be more than happy to buy it from you.

But no Calgunners want to sell theirs, so i have no choice but to go to Big5.....what can ya do, when you want to help a member :confused:

I'll sell you one, I've got em laying around the house like firewood.

You can never have too many Mosins. They are simple to operate and clean, accurate enough at reasonable ranges. They pack a round that is plentiful, cheap, and will drop anything walking in North America. Every month when Big5 has their "89.95" sale on em, I go Tula hunting, hell for less than the cost of dinner out with the wife you get a perfectly serviceable long gun, how great is that?

I just picked mine up from Big 5 last night and I can't wait to get her out on the range this weekend. It comes with a bayonet, sling and an ammo pouch all of which are original.

They are a bit beat up but that adds to the character of the rifle. I looked up some history on mine and it was manufactured at the Tuli Arsenal in Russia in 1939.

What a great story it would be to hear if the rifle could talk. Who may it have killed? What battle was it in during WWII, etc. ? It cost a mere $99.00 + tax and DROS. Well worth it I think!

expect pie plate accuracy at the most. Expect softball sizes at the least. This is with surplus ammo of course. But Handloads will close it up more.

I am contemplating selling my m44 to fund my saiga adventure.. But I love her...

I am taking my mosin out today after work. there is a little spot in the Cleveland national forrest with tables and targets set up. I want to dial in my scout scope for my hunt with a fellow calgunner in a couple of weeks.

I did this at 100yds with big 5 winchester SP 180Gr, and yes I am hoping to trade it. I love her but I am looking for something different.http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=222674

I bought the rifle because of the history associated with it. I find it fascinating that I own a 70 year old firearm that has been a "witness" to a major part of 20th century history. (WWII)

The fact that it still shoots is a great plus but the historical aspect of the rifle is what does it for me. I wonder about the soldier(s) who carried it and if it killed Nazi's or whomever.

I know this sounds strange but when I hold it I feel a great sense of history! :)
