i have the mosin sickness, cant let a mosin big 5 sale pass without another mosin purchase. i i bought a m44 from a pawn shop [ alamo covina] thursday and on the way from work friday i stopped at turners because they also had a mosin sale. they let me go threw a few boxes [ thank you] and i found a very nice 1943 IZZY. that is 3 mosins in about 30 days. he showed me a very nice mouser for 400 bucks from a private collection being sold.

Embrace it. As much fun as they are to shoot, it is just as fun to look for good ones and learn all about them, i.e. field stripping, ungunking, just generally collecting etc. Really an awesome, fun, and (still) cheap rifle to own and shoot.

yep spam can of 7.62-54 costs $ 108 at ammo bros. [ 440 rounds]. for you none mosin owners it is close to 30-6 ammo for .25c a bullet. the short carbine mosin will clear a rifle range with its flame and blast. you need double ear protection. mucho fun.
