Seems like all the sporting goods stores had them for $125-150 back in the day. I haven't seen one in ages. I'm pretty sure they have fixed magazines - yes?

Looks cheap to run rounds through, and I remember them being fun to fire.

FWIW, I'm in Lincoln.

Most Big 5s have 1 or 2. River City has a few, along with a few T53s. And there's always the For Sale section here.

Only a year ago you could pick one up for $89 on sale at Big5.
They still have them but the price has gone up.
They pop up for sale here everyday and I've seen quite a few here for sale this week.
Depends what you want. -g

River City has 6 IIRC, was in there the other day. J&G gunsmithing in Granite Bay has a badly bubba'd finnish M28 for $200 if that interests you. You could check at the Lincoln Gun Exchange, they might have one.

Not sure when it is, but there's always a few at the Roseville gun show

Otherwise, keep an eye out in the FS section here.

IMO its best to get one FTF no dros no wait.
Better hurry the exemption to do so goes away Jan 1st 2014.
But expect prices to have gone up.. like 200 for a 91/30...

He is right, I just put my 1928 91/30 in jail....its very annoying knowing I could have skipped the background check and the wait, it could be in my hands now! other than that, I cant wait! looks amazing, hex receiver, nice stock. I am a happy camper

Why not? Buy it and have it transfered to a local store. The Mosin may not have to be transfered, I'm not sure. If your going just ask,

Thanks.

I called a couple shops about handling the paperwork, most want an additional $50-100 to do it. Given the extra price, maybe I'll try to pickup a local one.... Or get 03FFL.

So far my phone calls have resulted in "No, but we can order them." It's not a firearm I'd buy sight-unseen.

No, end of FTF 50 year old exemption.
IMO better to start selling them the week before Christmas to get that last minute shopping rush!

Because it's a sniper rifle. You think that's a bad price, go try to buy an orignal sniper from any other major country :eek:

Unless you have a C&R, your best bet is a LGS. Big5 usually has them for $199. Anything cheaper is a bit of a search. Century has the best pricing that I have seen bit you need a C&R to buy from them.

I dropped by a Big5 while waiting to be seated at Red Lobster. They had a super nice once there. My brother knows a lot more about these than I do, and he said it was a good one. Had an armory repair. Was on sale.

I'll pick it up in 11 days. :)

Do you mean the box with a line mark? That means Arsenal Refinished, which pretty much all imports for a long time now have been.

There's a section of the stock that was cut out and replaced. The repair is very good. It was also refinished.

I was about to order a couple spam cans of ammo, but it looks like most places aren't friendly to steel core. Nuts.

I just purchased a Hex $159 and a regular $129 from Aim Surplus. Shipping was $39. Then bought 880 rounds from sportman guide for less than $200 shipped. I dont have a mosin and figured it was time.

Where do you get your shipping done?

I understood it as 1 Mosin shipped for $39 not 2 (I need to read better). Century does $12.95 shipping. I was not commenting on ammo from SG. The ammo was inclusive of shipping. I got my crate for $185-ish.

I drove up yesterday with My dad and got a type 53 from berserks9. Cash and Carry cant go wrong.

I would think cash and carry would be a huge attraction over buying one through an FFL ?

If you want a good 91/30 Mosin Nagant, you need to order from AIM SURPLUS! They will ship to your FFL. An extra $10 dollars will get you a better hand picked rifle.

The last 91/30 I bought came from them. I bought a round receiver, laminated stock, hand select for bore. I have not had a chance to shoot it but it has a great bore and a much better than average trigger. In fact, it's as good as the factory trigger on most of my Mausers. I ***think*** it should be a good shooter......

I got mine for $100 a few years ago, they sell one like in the pic you posted at Big5 for 600 as well, havent seen a Mosin for less than $265 nowadays.

Was at Turners yesterday. They had a sign up that said they just got 1000 in. 16% are "excellent condition" and priced at $199.99. The lesser condition are cheaper, but I don't remember the prices. Said they should have them in stores sometime this week. Salesman said they are "long ones" so I assume 91/30s.

Just paid for one at Turner's this morning in Reseda. They didn't have any 'excellent' left, mine was $155 in 'very good' condition. For my first bolt-action it looks pretty damned nice for what I paid.

Where is this cut out section? If its the toe of the buttstock then its probably not a repair but a toe splice. which is very common it was done so they could use smaller blanks to make the stocks

That's a fairly common area for a repair on a mosin.

edit: I see you are in Lincoln. I don't think the range off of 65 has a problem with steel core stuff but I could be wrong. I know steel core is fine at spenceville and oroville.
