    They keep jackin the prices up on these. Even with the rediculous shipping from AIM Surplus you still end up paying quite a bit less for one. The ones that I have looked at in the recent past had force matched serial numbers, were counter bored, and a little beat up. I know, it's a Mosin Nagant, they are kind of a rough rifle to begin with. However, why pay this price for a bottom rung Mosin when you can get a lot nicer one for cheaper?

    - Not crappin on your thread just expressing my disappointment about their price. Thank you for sharing though :)

    I too thought that, while it is great that it is in stock, the price seems a bit high, even by Big-5 standards.

    I haven't been in this long enough to know what some of these rifles should or use to sell for but I see a trend following like some of the AKs that I've been told sold for $100-$200 all day long at Big5 back in the day.

    The Mosin trend has pretty well maxed out. When they were $50, it was time to buy. At $190 after BGC, you might make $10 if you sit on it 20 years. Unfortunately, you have to compare this more to the k98 Mauser's that Big 5 used to sell for $49. They maxed out around $2-250. An AK that sold for $1-200 would have sold 25 or more years ago and has far more value than a 100 year old bolt gun. Apples and oranges.
