@Don I would normaly agree with you. Except I am seeing prices up to $425 right now. I should have bought 1 6 months ago for $100. At those prices you can buy a lot of good rifles. Ruger american con be done for $375, and I know that it will out shoot any Mosin
Apples to oranges really, with a Mosin you're getting a shootable piece of history. With a Ruger American you're getting a rifle, nothing more. If it's especially nice I wouldn't have too much of a problem with $350, the Russian M44s have been selling here for $250+ so I don't think $350 for a rifle you really like and want because of your heritage is a terrible deal. You might be able to find a better deal but really how often are you going to see a Hungarian M44. I've been looking for a reasonably priced M44 for a bit and haven't seen very many good ones that were priced under $275.
