    Sorry if this is the wrong forum but I figured being labeled Rifle and shotgun discussion, it might be a good place to start.


    I have a mossberg 500 with home defense barrel and a bird barrel, plus an extra stock and 25 rounds of ammo

    A friend of mine wants to trade for a finnish mosin, mostly matching serial numbers, shoots .8moa ,and has never had corrosive ammo in it, is this a good trade or am I just being dumb? The mosin also comes with a 60 rounds of brass ammo. thoughts?

    M39 still going for around $300 and up unless its a sneek or a hex reciver with some history then more , so,,,,,,,,,,,,guess it depends on how bad you want to trade
    no by brass ammo do you mean boxer primed? reloadable? then that adds to the price a few $$ but if its brass cased berdan then not much

    it is indeed a hex receiver as well, which is my motivation for the trade.......I hate letting go of a gun, but I also love a new one....

    The Mossberg is a commodity; the Finnish Mosin is a piece of history.

    I love Mossberg 500s, but as my Grandfather was a full Finn born in MN, and his family sent aid to their siblings and cousins throughout both World Wars.....I'm solidly in the Finnish Mosin camp.

    Trade the shotgun Finn's are hard to find and run 350 on up depending on markings and rarity, you can always find a shotgun for cheep.

    Haven't shot one or even held one before. But as far as Mosin's go; I've heard the "Finn's" are the one's to have.
    Very accurate and the workmanship is very nice. The ones I have seen in stores were Russian or Chinese and beat
    to heck, wouldn't chunk anything down on those.
