Drop the price on Mosin Nagant from $79 to $69.

Think they would do it?

Heck, I would buy a bunch of em if they did.


Listening AIM? :43:

Maybe do a special California only sale. :43:

I think there needs to be a "Hoarders: Buried Alive in Mosin-Nagants Edition". Some people just can't help themselves when a 70 year old battle tested piece of history is priced under 100 bucks (or in your case, under 79, but I think you are being unreasonable :) )

I bet there are some insane hoards out there of well over 100 rifles. Does anyone have pics? I thought I saw a picture one time of 7.62x54r's (website guy) basement... it was insane.

Mmm I couldn't find it, the attachments don't show anymore when browsing old threads on another site. :(

I did read some numbers kicked around (http://forums.gunboards.com/showthread.php?207101-How-many-Mosins-in-you-collection&highlight=largest+mosin+collection) of people owning 300, 400, 500, 800(!) mosins.

I really lust after something like this:

Actually I'm sure you could order one from a distributor, they will probably give you a volume deal too. :)

I saw the same thing for consecutive serial numbered M59/66s a few years back offered by Samco... 10 rifles.. that was cool .

Several Calgunners have done it (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=285460&highlight=crate).

I get collecting a lot of different Mosins, but a crate full of the same type? Whatever floats your boat I guess.
We were at the Vallejo show last weekend and saw a Polish 22 trainer. The guy selling it wasn't there, but it looked cool. It was single shot and pretty nice, interesting.

I want his babies! damn look at that. SKS, Mausers, swiss, Einfields! and more!! man a C&R Delight.

I saw a thread on the Mosin forums some guy had an insane amount. Something like 500 crates in his warehouse. He would order them by the bundle and just stack em up. I think he is ready for the German Invasion.

I'm about to do it again. Only this time bigger. Would be nice if everyone came back down to $79.95 again, or cheaper would be nice too.

why would they ever lower the price. They are making a killing even with the raised price. Should have bought more when they were cheaper.

They're just following a proven crack dealer tactic... One free sample then you're hooked... ok, maybe not free but look at us.... HOOKED on Mosin Crack!!!

Why do people collect stamps? Not like they're going to mail a ton of letters. Looking at the crate of rifles picture, 4 years ago you could get a crate of 10 SKSs , consectutively numbered, in the crate for about 2300. NOT for california though I was told when I enquired.

Forget the Germans! We're talking zombies! A 7.62x54R shot in the head, and that walker never rises again.

But seriously - Mosins are beautiful and reliable in a girl-next-door kinda way. The metaphor will stop there, or I'm gonna sound like a pimp.

I would take the lid off, cover it in glass and use the full crate as a coffee table. Then I would invite those religious fanatic door-knockers in for some coffee.

But that's just me. :43:

So, can I buy a full crate anywhere for less than $700?

Nope. That ship has sailed. A crate is 20 rifles.

lol this is true :) I am eyeing an m44 right now on SOG. I don't think my little apartment and safe can hold a full long mosin. I hear m44 are really fun! however they accuracy is hit or miss.

What would be the shipping cost of M44 from SOG to California?

You missed out OHOD.

Aim was one of the last importers/wholesalers to raise their price From 69.95 to 79.95 Fall of last year. It isn't going back down, and is going to be rising just about $10 per rifle every six months or so. My avatar pic was $1400 before shipping and fees, now it's $1600. That's what $10 per rifle does for you :(

I went to JG Sales last year and spent pretty much all day picking over the mosins. Took a good 6 hours, and i paid an extra $30 or so for each one, but im pretty damn sure i have the best 6 examples of mosins in their entire arsenal.

It was actually kinda cool going over all those rifles, the "maybe" pile alone was a good 30 or 40 rifles and i whittled it down from there.

I only have 6, but each one of them is as close to a perfect specimen as can be found.
