I looked at a Chinese carbine with the spike bayonet today. stamped 1960. Bore was shiney and looked very good. Furniture was well used but no major damage. They were asking $300. Unfortunatly/Fortunatly they also had a Chinese SKS with bayonet that I liked for $350. Now I am thinking of the SKS. I am not in love with the Mosin. Its just inexpensive and I want to collect a few war/military guns.
Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it.
