Re: Mosin Nagant question????
I bought an Izzy M38 and a boatload of ammo from a relative for $100. Best $100 I ever spent. A fair amount of elbow grease, tung oil, fine grit and fine steel wool, and the thing looks great and shoots even better. It's really handy and will take any critter in North America. Muzzle flash is spectacular, recoil is somewhat stout, but it is surprisingly accurate, even with crappy military ammo. Plus, there's a fair amount of aftermarket goodies to be had for it. Even at $129, you can't go wrong with a Mosin.
