emcom5@ the second link you provided was a Hungarian mosin. Sold at $370. Condition looked about the same as the one I am looking at, at least by the pics.
Do Hungarian mosin typically sell for more? I know they are somewhat more rare but that doesn't mean they are better.
Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it.
