I bought my first Mosin a Polish M44 for only $69. I had to go through about 5 crates of them, they were cosmoline soaked & I had to wipe it off to see what I was buying.
It took me two weeks to get enough cosmoline off to safely shoot it.

Oh I love auto-correct
I've got a new nickname for mosins now...

I sure hope I never get desperate enough to pay over a hundred dollars for a mosin.

Last gunshow I was at, all the Mosins were overpriced and looked pretty, ah, rough.

Not inclined to pay a bunch of spendy dollars for a Mosin junker.

No mosin in the world is worth $400 to me.

A Finnish moist-nugget could be worth more than $400. Some truly accurate rifles.

I stopped looking when I saw them at $350, that was probably 2 years ago. Bought one back in the Day for $99, wish I still had it, it was fun, but I wouldn't do it again for the price. if your thinking of cashing in remember, a dealer is gonna give you maybe half of that 400.
I don't believe in "range fodder" that is why I reload.
