    Not being critical, just curious. What is the fascination with Mosin Nagants?

    theyre cheap, they are an historic part of our firearms history, they are a venerable choice for hunting rifle, they are cheap, simple to operate, cheap, simple to maintain, did I mention cheap, simple to customize, theyre cheap, there abundant, and theyre cheap. ;), Unless youre a REAL afficionado and are lookin ro a fin M39 or a remy. then youre lookin at something thats not so cheap no mo:)

    They are bad ass!!!

    Just look at them;
    Heavy metal
    Tons of wood
    super long barrels
    and they shoot a pretty large cartridge.

    no youre right. I aint ever shot one that didnt cluster. They dont all shoot to point of aim but they do group. Sight adjustment is the easy part;)

    They are cheap and fun however with mine i did a lot of work to it where it shoots almost better than a modern rifle now.

    75.00 New stock
    100. dollars bolt turn down, scope mount and gunsmithing
    90.00 dollars for the huber concepts trigger
    50.00 for reloading equipment
    Now i went a little overboard but its a lot of fun and why not i have 2 others that i keep original. Plus this baby now is one tuned in deer rifle.

    Used about 100 rounds of "dirty" surplus and ran better then my brothers new (at the time) .22lr Marlin 795. I just need to easy up on the trigger so I don't cause myself to sway.
