Re: What should you pay for a MN 44 with a bright bore?
Other things to look for on surplus nagants is damaged rifling in the bore tip from poor cleaning tecnique. Also copper fouling in the barrel can be problematic. if its used you should take it down and clean it thoroughly. Many of the 91/30's were counter bored at the arsenal Im not sure about the 44's but hey if a slight counter bore is all that is needed you just save alot of money. i am also in agreeance with the other reloader here surplus eastern block ammo is pitiful for accuracy compared to good hand loads.
