    Watch Big 5 if you have one down there, or have a local dlr order one from AIM surplus for you. Most are in decent shape, check the muzzle for sings of wear from over cleaning and whether its been counter bored....

    On a Mosin, I personally don't care about anything but the bore. They look like they were made with a hatchet and a soldering iron. Still, very accurate, functional weapons. When Big 5 has them on sale for $99, if you can get one with a good bore you are doing well.

    I have a bunch of them from Big 5 that are 98% or better, many with all matching numbers, many hex receivers, and all with full accessory package.. I go there, sort thru the ones they have, and have therm hold the guns till the next sale
