I was gonna get a Mosin Nagant 91/30 a while back but I couldnt find one for sale where I live and couldnt get anyone with FFL to transfer one for me so instead I bought a Stevens 67 Shotty.

Quality of these rifles vary quite a bit-this one was imported from Georgia but was Russian made in Izhelsvk. I made the clerk go through about a dozen boxed arms before I picked this one out based on the year, pre-war furniture (the brass fittings over the barrel), point of manufacture, barrel condition, hex receiver, etc. Barrel stamps on this one are pretty clean, but I it was reworked at some point, as the sling fittings are not screwed in-hence the Ex-Dragoon classification. Standard accessories included cleaning kit, oil/solvent holder, bayonet, and sling. She was covered in a generous coating of grease when I pulled her out of the box, but cleaned up quite nicely with a little gun oil and careful application of Brasso. Sorry you couldn't get anyone to do a transfer on one for you, that sucks. They sell a few of them up here every year as deer rifles before the season opens. There's always a few of these around for sale during the rest of the year too. Paid $99 for it-probably the least expensive heavy caliber rifle I'll ever buy.

Yes mosins are cheap and very common. Im not picky on what type it is but I do want a quality and safe rifle. Sooner or later I will get me one. My buddy has a finnish Mosin but its chamberd in 7.62x54R instead of the 7.62x53R. Either way Mosins have made a legend out of Vasily Zaytsev. Im not a big fan of russians but Vasily has my respect.

unless I'm reading it wrong...you have it backwards. The Finnish rifles are x53R and the Russians are x54R
