Mosins are kind of a strange animal to me, I have 2 of them. one was made in 1938, the fit and finish is of high quality, metal is polished before blueing and such, a nice hardwood stock, nice trigger pull. I paid $130 for this one.
Then I have another that was made rather hastily right in the middle of WWII. Machining marks are still there, the laminate stock doesn't fit as good, the trigger pull is spongy. I paid $99 for this one. Both are from the same armory.
