Wait....
You're nutz to buy these now; prices will come back down.

44's were going for $180 a month ago, hard to find now, but SOG (you need an 03 FFL) has them for $230...

AIM is sold out of 91/30's at $100, but JG Sales has them in stock at $120 (which I still think is too much)....

When you can buy a Ruger for $330 that'll drive tacks...why anyone would want to spend nearly that much for a beat up old milsurp is beyond me...

Now, don't get me wrong...I love the Mosin platform, own a couple, and spent quite a bit of effort (and $$) building one into a capable long-range rifle. But they are, what they are...and as such, are getting overpriced in the current market like many other rifles.

I wouldn't pay over $100 for a 91/30 (unless that includes a transfer if required), $180 for a 44...

To pay $100 less than a rifle that'll outshoot it all day long...is absurd.

And yes, the surplus ammo is cheap, but inaccurate...
And if you're gonna shoot factory ammo, buy a Ruger.
