Default Mosin Nagant crate

Anyone know where I can get an empty Mosin crate without spending a small fortune?

Sometimes they go up in the MP. Try local shops that sell em and see if they're selling (or maybe throwing away) the crate?

turners sell them sometimes at about $40-50 each when they have them.

or buy 12 from classic firearms and it comes in one.

Local Turner's has had a few lately. Think they had 1 left when I stopped by Friday. Somewhere in the $40 range.

Do a search in WTS. Over the summer there were sellers in both NorCal and SoCal. They might still be available.

I picked up 3 for $90 from turners in Fountain Valley a couple of weeks ago. Don't know if they have any more.
I'm starting to collect crates like the Mosin's

Only a few LGS in my area (SF bay area) and none have the crates. Shipping costs make whatever the crate costs completely out of budget.

Same here. Had to use veto power, but as soon as I get one, I'll start work.

Some people want to make things (mostly coffee tables out of them, which is cool) but I will fill them with surplus guns and ammo when I leave Ka and have my safe room.
Well maybe one table or even a stand up cabinet like someone mentioned a little while ago
