Hi all, So I got my x-mas bonus from work and was not expecting one so I want to use it to buy a Mosin. I want to get a hex but I have so many to choice from I dont know.

AIM has hex for $79 + $10 handpick
J&G has them for $89 + $10 handpick and shipping will be less
SOG has hex for $79 + $10 handpick or they have the MO double dates for $129 + $25 handpick.

I know buy them all you say but I cant do it now. I was thinking of getting the MO but if I go cheaper I can also get a Steyr M95 from SOG for $84 but then ammo is so much I cant shoot it alot.

I was just wanting to know what all of you experts think or what you would do. Thanks for the help.

If you are looking for a 91/30 with more collector value, get the MO double date.

If you are looking for just a shooter, buy from AIM and don't worry about the handpick, AIM doesn't send out crappy 91/30's.

I have seen some good deals right here on the classifieds.

:iagree:

I forgot about the classifieds! I scored a great 34 Izhevsk on here a couple of months ago.

Yea I ordered a ex-dragoon from classic and a week later they called me to tell me they are out of stock. I called back and ask what they have and they said K31, and enfields no Mosins. I have looked on here but I never find one I want or it goes too fast. How is AIM on shipping?

Wait out the "collector's corner" area of J&G. There are some frickin gem bores there about two or three times a month, both Tula and Izhevsk round or hex.

I must know why a laminated stock has a rarity of 7 on there?!

Laminated M91/30 stocks, also post-war replacements, are much less common than solid or "hardwood" stocks and do bring a premium. Although seemingly plentiful on the current market, in reality the numbers are small and they can be expected to go up in value.

Laminated stocks were post war and made mostly for the M44. By then, the Soviets were getting ready to switch over to auto feed carbines.
As soon as the SKS and AK made the scene, they took their Mosins, refurbished them and placed them in storage for the last great war (WWIII).

I see. Maybe I should pickup laminated stocks from now on haha.

It just seems that the other rarity 7s are much more rare.
