there were millions of springfields, enfields, and mausers made and yet how many of them are still in heavy supply? mosins became the lastest craze when enfields were no longer the cheapest milsurp out there and since ammo has remained the cheapest of any milsurp round for about the last 10 years you can bet that the mosin nagant is going to run out at some point. it is a little unfortunate that the lamanate stocks are hitting the market during obamascare 2012 but I guess that's life for you.
by my understanding the lamanate stocks are a lot more rare than the average 19/30 on the market and with the averages going for around $140 at retail(not internet +ffl and shipping) I would be willing to say that 179 is an ok price but not really what would have been considered a bargain even just a couple years ago.
