How to tell

I was at my local gunshop, and they had an Mosin Nagant for $80 bucks. It was marked 1968 and was a Carbine version. I was wondering how to tell if a Mosin is any good? And is it still possible to get a real Russian Nagant?

Yes there is

There is a way to get a mosin nagant russian style. the 91/30 is a russian carbine. yes mosin nagants are good guns to tell if there in good shape look in the bolt for wear or chunks missing also look down the barrel and see if there any nicks inside. check internal the magizine springs and check for loose parts. Glad to see that more people are getting interested in mosin nagants. for $80 bucks thats a good deal take atvantage of that deal Hunter59.

mosin nagants

all of the nagants that i have seen were russian made. they were then either used by the russian military, or sold off to other countries. U.S based companies started importing large amounts of nagant surplus rifles a few years ago for sporting and civilian use. the 91/30 is the longer and most popular version. Then there are carbine versions. the m38 which was made in 1938 (how did you guess) and the m44 which is basically the same as the m38, but they added the bayonete six years later. They were the primary infantry rilfe of russian armed forces until the sks, then ak47. There also made a sniper version of the 91/30 which was basically the same rilfe with optics (they just picked the cream of the crop for these). The main thing to check when buying nagants are the bolt, barrel, and stock. most parts are fairly cheap since there are so many of the around. I own 5... 1 91/30, 91/30 w/ origiional scope, 2 m38, 1 m44. They are fun and great shooters. The two carbine versions have a lot more recoil and shoot flames out of the barel because they are so short.

They had

They had both a carbine and a 91/30 with a bayonet. I just might get one the next time I go. Thanks for the helpful info!
