Looking for a cheap Mosin. I like the one I have so much I figure another one wouldn't hurt.

91/30 preferred but I'll consider M44's or M38s.

I don't care what the stock looks like since I have a replacement.

Barrel must be in decent shape and action must lock up nicely.

PM me if you've got something that might interest me.
Located in the SF Bay Area.

seriously, just wait for a sale to role around, and pickup whichever one you like the most.

I have a 91/30 that I bought a while back. I need to thin the herd out a little. I will sell it for what I bought it for. $85 FTF

Amen to that. My M44 sets off car alarms at the range with every shot. I shoot hundreds of rounds through Garands each month, but I save the M44 for 'special occasions'. Sounds like an 88 Magnum, kicks like an ex-wife. :D

Yeah, I have run heavy ball in the past and save that stuff for unsuspecting friends. =) Yesterday I put 40 rounds of 148gr through my M44 and it was no worse than trap shooting with a 12g 870.

Wow, guys... I prefer heavy ball in my 91/30. The hardest-kicking stuff I've shot so far is 150 grain commercial from Ingman.

I usually go through 100+ rounds every time I hit the range.

They don't kick that bad...

about 2 weeks too late for my cheap stockless m38 I sold cheap... I just dros'ed a 1946 Izzy postwar unissued looker to do a mild sporter project using another stock I have.

After a while you get use to it. I did. Also the 7.62x39 from an ak and sks seems like nothing after that.:D
