Finally caved in when I saw the big5 ad this week. Moist-Nugget (Mosin-Nagant) m91/30's, $69 + $10 for a background check. My nominal excuse is the economy... I need an SHTF rifle is a real rifle caliber. But thats just a nominal excuse. I got one because they go bang really really hard, and the rifle is dirt cheap. Ammo isn't too bad either - $5 for 20 at the gunshow. Big5 overcharges for ammo. Anyway, I got an Izhevsk manufacture 91/30, complete with matching serial numbers and a nice hammer and sickle stamp. The markings are in excellent condition, the bore and barrel look great, and everything works perfectly smoothly. I don't think I can take it out to the range till next weekend, but we'll see... The rifle came with a full accessory kit - Ammo pouch, oil bottle, sling and dog-collars, wrench and tools, and of course the famous bayonet. The way I figure it, if someone is stupid enough to break into my house, they'll be met by me, carrying a 4 foot rifle with an 18 inch bayonet on the end, screaming like a drunken Scotsman. If they don't crap their pants right there, they're a stronger man than I. But I'll still skewer em. :F The rifle is seriously massive. Without the bayonet, the barrel reaches well above my elbow, around mid-bicep. Bayonet attached, the tip of the bayonet reaches just to my eye. I stand about 6 foot. Right, some pictures.
