Had to be done, otherwise the voices in your head get angry and that never ends well.

Congrats. They are fun to play with.

Haha, reminds me of when I got my Mosin. Went in to window shop for ammo and look at prices on boots, walked out having DROSed an all matching parts M91/30.

Costco should sell Ammo. That would be great!

Right? They could probably get us a really good deal
Mosin are c&r but they are not cash and carry with out the c&r lic. And still I dont think big 5 would honor cash and carry. A different ffl should though

Lol, the last time I went to Big 5 I asked if they had Mosin Nagant stripper clips. The manager replied "Stripper clips?!?!? Are those even legal?" My Navy buddy and I could barely walk out of the store, we were laughing so hard.

Don't feel to bad. I have a couple of big 5 stories, first I've had an employee there try and sell me +p ammo for my ruger sayin its "weaker ammo just for the range" then just recently I bought a mosin on sale sale for $109.99 and the guy who sold it to me says "luckily you came to us to buy it, if you wanted a mosin else where you would spend at least $600 as they are vintage $800 ww1 rifles" I about **** myself I was laughin so hard.

If you have to ask if a Mosin Nagant is C&R you should probably do a A LOT of homework before you even think about getting one

Yes they are.

No you can not cash and carry from an FFL01. (Unless you have an FFL03 and a C.o.E. I think it is still DROS'd but you get to skip the 10 day wait, but I'm not 100% sure about 03/C.O.E. stuff so don't hold me to it)

In CA you can cash and carry C&R rifles that are over 50 years old in a face to face transaction. (Without an FFL03)

Yes, 03 C&R lic + COE = you can take home a 50+ yr old rifle from an informed FFL same day but you still have to DROS..... most Big 5's are not informed and have no idea about that exemption.

The cash and cary 50+ yr old face to face is fine till Jan. 1 2014.

Yea make sure to post photos we love seeing those receiver markings :D

Check out:
http://7.62x54r.net/ and the C&R forum here

BTW Before you know it they will start multiplying, first its a round, then its a hex and then you will need to get a carbine! It's a slippery slope!
Except I did it all backwards and started with the M38 Carbine!

Oh yea and Copes has 440rd spam cans for 79.99 and free shipping till tonight at midnight!

Costco is anti-gun. Sam's club would be more likely to sell gun stuff.

Big 5 has not had carbines for years.
They are getting hard to find except on the 2nd hand market.

Best you can probably find retail atm is Chinese Type 53 carbines (even they are drying up and they are pretty beat up condition)

Good for you, did the same thing only @ Turner's. Just shot it at one of vast number of places we can go to in our region. ( sarcasm ) Anyway, it's plain M91/30 year 38. I'm going to refinish it and make it look like a Finnish M.N.

I'll post pics. I enjoyed Nutnfancy's Mosin Review. Check it out on Youtube if you haven't done so. His take on a Red Dot for this weapon is interesting.

Enjoy your Rifle and Shoot Safe,
