So I guess nobody is welcome there anymore, was a former registered member but found out this week that I'm no longer registered and admin doesn't seem to respond to email about it. Hell, I didn't even post anything there to piss em off

I'm sure I'm not the only one who found that sight a wealth of knowledge and am very disappointed with the apathetic attitude of the admin

IIRC, if you aren't active for a certain period of time, the account gets deleted. I don't see how they plan to grow with the registration rules they have in place now, but maybe they don't want to grow. :shrug:

Did you look at the VERY LARGE part of the website showing all the different known markings and what they mean before asking questions?

Yup, this! I was a member for close to two years, when my frequenting the site lowered (like I have here lately....hey I have been busy), my account was deleted. So be it! Still great info on the site and so what if I can't post! I guess I did not post enough for them anyhow.

I'm a member there, username Izhevsk762.

Dolk, the owner of the site, is also a calgunner.

It's pretty laid back there, but it is a purist site, so if you intend to bubbafy your rifle, don't ask. At least over there they probably won't ban you, but we will most certainly try to talk you out of it.:)

hell, my last post there was about un-bubbaing a "sporterized" 91/30 that I found for $49. Now it's a nice shooter that looks great except for the '03 front sight that had got put on it

It's funny how certain websites acquire a certain "personality." I'm sure that's based a lot on the admin, and what types of posts they encourage and allow, and what sorts of posters gain alpha-dog status there.

For years (way back in the early days of the internet) I was a member of Tuco's Militaria website, which was focused on milsurps in general, but Mosins, especially Finnish Mosins, in particular. My attendance there started to fall off when it stopped being a laid-back, newbie-accommodating, friendly place and became kind of a purist site where they even sniffed derisively and looked down their noses as Big 5 purchases. Too bad. I don't know if it's like that now (or even if they're still operating), but I probably haven't visited that site in 5+ years.

I did. a few markings were on the list and the rest were not, so I was curious about what the other markings were and they tried to ban me for being curious :confused:

Un-bubba'ing is always good. :thumbsup:

If you are talking about gunboards, it's not like that now. Refurbs are talked about every day there. While a plain 43 Izhevsk 91/30 might not draw the same attention as a nice Finn, I don't think refurbs are looked down on at all.

Are Fearless Leader "Cold Blue Bob" Wheeler and the "Wheeleristas" - his mutual masturbation society of brown-nosing synchophant morons - no longer running that site and mixing insulting rudeness with bad information? :confused:

Bobw sold the site to dolk about a year ago now. The new forums at RMNF went up last august.

As for the "wheeleristas", I joined there originally in 08, that must've been before my time.

I have not been banned from 7.62x54r.net, yet. I am curious, can you at least read forum post or are you banned from the entire forum? I dont like posting there. Seems everything I say is wrong. I am definatly not in the "click".

"Lurk" on a forum with a 0 post count for long, and you'll likely have your account "purged". I do it on Mauser Central on a regular basis to keep the hardcore email servers from gleaning member email addresses. Unless the user's IP is a known chronic spammer or email server, legitimate users can open a new account.
Keeping spammers off a forum is a lot of work, even with all the counter measures available. Kudos to the CalGun staff for doing an excellent job here!

I had friend that had a mosin with some odd markings, so I posted it to see if any could tell me. Boy did I catch hell for that; they said it was a "non-mosin topic"! Haven't posted anything since, it's decent source of information but (IMHO) CALGUNS - Curio & Relic/Black Powder is a much freindly-er site!:43:

Same here, I found the site to be:

1. Full of great information.
2. Full of zero tolerance for the most part.

Due to number two I stopped going there quickly. That's the beauty of trying a site before you decide to help support it by your dollars.

Ouch! :(

He is gone a long time now. I didn't buy the forums form BobW, You will notice we are at

www.russian-mosin-nagant-forum.com (new site)
www.russian-mosin-nagant.com/forum (BobW's old site)

We sort of left him behind! .......I'll leave it at that. ;)

Later he gave us the old URL, not sure why, but......what the heck.

-----------------------------------------

We are a "preservation forum" but without all the heavy handedness. We really don't have an issue with other forums that want to alter rifles, we just prefer them not on the forums (too many arguments). We even have a section for sportstered military surplus rifles and another one for restoration.
We love new Mosin owners even with their "Big 5" Mosin (as someone here put it). We really could care less if it is a refurb or not. All are welcome.

I read and enjoy many forums, I just follow the rule for each one as I log on.

Their house, their rules. And really, we have enough problem fighting with the Anti's gunners out there, so why fight with a fellow gunner?

Anyway, CALGUNS is my favorite (after mine! ;) )

Hello,

http://www.russian-mosin-nagant-forum.com/

Ditto on the membership, here. I go there to ask historical questions. Sometimes I slip and make a post that goes away. It's never intentional.

http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/

This is a very good place and not as strict.

http://www.milsurps.com/

Not as active, still an awesome board.

http://gew88.com/gew_88_forum/

Mostly for the Gewehr 88, predecessor to the Gewehr 98. Nice board, and I enjoy it.

http://www.akfiles.com/forums

Fairly fun place.

http://www.socamo.com/

The founder is here at CG.

http://www.soviet-steel.com/

Fun board, not as active as it could be, younger members I think.

Of course I believe everyone knows about gunboards.com .

Do you allow posts about shooting Mosins?

There is great information available at 7.62x54R.net, but my last post there was moved to the non-collecting forum and locked because, in the words of the administrator..."Shooting is off topic."

I didn't wish to quibble, but found it odd, given the amount of space that they devote to 7.62 x 54R ammunition on their reference site.

Yes, RMNF is a mix of both shooting and collecting topics. It's primarily a mosin forum, but virtually any gun can be talked about there. We've got sub-forums for commercial rifles and shotguns, handguns, an SKS forum, a blackpowder forum, and several more forums.

What I like best about RMNF is the general laid back attitude we have there.

Dolk
06-08-2012, 4:24 PM
We have a lot of stuff on the forums! You can even go there and post a joke or BS on the off topic forum. We also have a pretty good following of SKS guys now. Some very knowledgeable guy with the SKS :cool:

Over all, the forums are laid back.

No, I didn't buy the forums. He threaten to close the forums (as he did every year). Then he wanted $1,500 for them (yeah, right). So we just moved. All the Moderators moved over and we setup the next day. I talked to him on the phone (interesting guy :rolleyes:) and he "gave us" the old URL, so we took it. But no, I didn't pay a penny for the forums as run down as he had them. They were really a mess. We just pumped some new life into them.

This is about the time 7.62 decided that taking about refurb's was not allowed, so we took all the New Mosin owners in and helped them along. We now sign up over 100 new Mosin owners every month. It is our way we pay back the people that helped us along years ago when we started.

I like coming here also. I don't get my head bashed in like we do on some forums,............ just for being a Californian.
