Mosin-Nagant

Recommended Posts

Someone from my office bought one a few months ago but there were only two in the store, his and his son-in-law's. I'm interested as they are of the era my father is interested in and very affordable, I believe my colleague paid about $120 for his. I understand there is a good supply of the rifles in the U.S., most authentic from the 1940s and preserved in Kosmoline, I just have not been able to locate one in a reasonable distance from Houston. If anyone knows where there may be some rifles for sale I am interested in knowing where I could pick one up. Thanks

claysdaddy,

 

They are very common; very easy to find, especially in a metro area like Houston. Call a few of the bigger gun stores. Best bet, for the best price, is to go to a large gun show. The last one I went to in San Antonio there were 2-3 dealers who had 15-20 MG's on display. And the $120 price range is good; you may be able to do better, but compare condition before you jump on a $90 special. Bring a bore light with you so you can peek down the barrel to see if anything is growing there! Google Mosin Nagant Houston TX. Here's a list of Texas Gun Shows: http://www.gunshowminute.com/tx/#tiptop

Wow! That's a great buy! They're selling them here for around $350! :angry: They're a good rifle... but not THAT good! :angry: Not when you consider that our dollar buys around a $1.06 US these days! Still, they are a very good rifle with a very useful and cheap-to-run caliber for pigs and come with a built-in mid-range pig sticker! <_<

For the price I took the chance and ordered the "superior condition" unit from Bud's. I'm currently travelling in Russia but it should be at my FFL dealer's shop when I return. I'll let y'all know how it turns out.

 

That is a nice looking rifle Boomy, and apparently effective! What kind of ammo do you shoot in it, and if factory, where do you buy it?

 

 

Follow up question for others who have this make of rifle; what ammo do you shoot in it, factory, hand-loads, bullet weight?

 

Thanks

Bear Ammo SP picked it up at a local shop. It blew a 4" threw it's spine.(very narrow front sight)

 

I went through all the ones they had on the shelf and found the best combination of interesting grain and rifling condition. I sanded it out and laid on about four or five coats of linseed oil.

I am interested in a couple of these. Anyone know of a dealer in texas or surrounding states that might carry some ? New Mexico may be a little of a stretch but any other states are ok
I have found some on line that are not priced to badly but they are still sight unseen
I am looking for something in a 120 to 150 price range with bayonet and associated pieces like pouch and tools
Thanks for any info

x2 - I have purchased from them and the stuff I got was as advertised in VG condition. If you know someone who is reasonable on a FFL transer I would recomend these guys. My friends son was interested in Mosin Nagants so I gave him my 1891 as a gift to kick start his gun collection off. I still have my M44 Mosin Nagant
