I bought a Mosin Nagant 7.62 for 17.95 from the Swear and Sendback catalog. Shipped right to my door along with fifty rounds of ammunition.
I didn't know they were importing Mosin's that far back. I remember the first ones I saw were at a gunshow in the late 70's. There was a huge rack of them for 9 bucks apiece. I was there for about three hours and I'm the only one that I saw pick one up and I couldn't put it down fast enough. No way I'd give 100 bucks for one.
