Ha Ha Ha....

Jackass (joking), more good news, the brown truck O' happiness just showed up with 780 rounds of ammo, 340 of 8mm Mauser and 440 of 7.62X54 ammo and yet more good news, my FFL guy emailed that my M-44 Nagant showed up after I left....sniff..sniff!!!....this is just like Christmas (and it only cost me three times what I have spent on guns and ammo lately to keep the wife happy....Hmmmmmm....lol)

Thanks GP,

my FFL guy is a pawn shop (he charges $15 when everyone else is $30)...Anyhoo, he seems to stick his nose up and infer that I paid too much for each gun that I have transferred with him, well I told him today that I am a collector not a pawn broker (I paid $130 for this rifle + shipping)....I hope that doesnt fuck up my $15 deal, I was a tad tired of hearing it from him...lol!

Sam, it is amazing...

These dudes are selling these rifles on gunbroker with no reserve and few are bidding on them, I realize that they are somewhat plentifull right now but that is not always going to be the case....I am buying as much as I can afford, If nothing else my kid's can have them......That's how I roll..LOL!

P.S. BEWARE, there is a lot of junk out there, question the seller often!

Yep GP, I would

bet that you would have spotted the chrome bolt on the Spanish mauser that I bought...I paid 3 bills for it but I like it just the same!

GP, well the bolt #

doesn't match the otherwise #'s matching rifle so I am a bit suspicious........

the bolt is from another gun.the importer sat there with a headspace gauge and a pile of bolts,switching them until the headspace was safe.pretty standard operation.so the blt is probably from an earlier gun.

It's cool GP,

even though it would always be more valuable with matching hardware, it is still a nice example just the same, hell, I own it and the kids want to shoot it.

Best looking Mosin Nagant I've ever seen. Congratulations! I hope it shoots as well as it looks, and that you get great enjoyment from it.

Hamp i didn't see this post.. beautifull.. and considering the ment stock i really think thats a good price, if you remember i was talking about J&G having them for 99.. Last time we were in Prescott i stopped in.. first off its 10 more for hand select, and no way that ANY of the hand select have that quality of furniture.. Just no way.. those i saw looked like battle field pick ups or maybe something that had been at the bottom of a dumpster..

Not knocking my boys at J&G, thier great folks, and good prices, but what you have is beautiful, and worth the diffrence in price.. By the way check them (or let me know) next time you need to send for the boys in brown, as thier 7.62X54 prices are tops..

laughing at Vaq's comment, glad im not the only one giving ya shit about the bicycle hangers, see ya all in the am.. Tired..

hamp

so have you shot any of the 7.62x54's yet? how bout the mauser? If not, you'll definitely know the feeling the day after you send 50 or so rds. down range. I have mucho respect for the guys that carried these things for miles and miles and shot hundreds of rounds a day. Its pretty crazy when you think about how accurate these rifles were for the time, and what one of these rounds does to soft tissue.

but I have shot these calibers before and yes they do kick like a mule.
These rifles had to be accurate as when you are dealing with 5 shot
strippers, every shot had to count, none of that 'pray and spray' stuff
like an M-16 etc. Yeah, I respect them as well, can you imagine the
weight of any quantity of ammo? Shit! 440 rounds weighs like 20
pounds and I doubt that would last long in battle.
