Just picked up a beautiful Mosin Nagant today for $119. It's finish is just flawless. Came with all the tools, sling, ammo pouches and oil can. After spending 2 hours cleaning all the components I shot 60 rounds through it and the bolt was flawless. I'll add some pics soon. What's everyone's thoughts on yours if you own one?

Even tho I haven't shot mine yet I still love them. I have a 1932 Russian PU hex sniper with all matching number and a 1945 Russian M44 carbine will all matching numbers except the bolt. Awesome firearms for the price.

I love mine! M44 is beast. Here's a short video of me shooting it. Watch the beautiful fireball. One of these days I'm going at dusk.

To stock pile a good ammo of non-corrosive ammo. ;)
HAHAHAHa. I'd love that. But for me, it's wishful thinking. AT over $21.00 a box, even the Tula steel case stuff is $$$$. my LGS has Remington brass case- $37 for 20 rounds. I'll save that for shooting matches. I'll practice with surplus.

The only thing nice about non-corro ammo is you don't have to clean right away.

Other than that, corrosive ammo is no big deal. At approx $150 (with shipping) for 880 rounds (2 spam cans in wood crate with can opener), corrosive ammo is a bargain.

Cleaning corrosive is not the chore people make it out to be.

#1. Shoot till hot
#2. Spray chamber, trigger group, bolt, and bore liberally with windex
#3. Rinse with super hot water. Hot water evaporates faster (hence getting the rifle nice and hot helps, as well).
#4. Spray with WD-40 to "displace" any water
#5. Clean with Hoppes #9- specifically states it nuetralizes corrosive salts (it's been around since corrosive ammo was common).
#6. Oil with rem-oil or something similar.

I clean at the range when I'm done shooting. Takes me 15 min tops.

Some of the "old timers" I shoot with tell me stories of how, in the military, they used to take their old wood stock rifles into the showers with them. Super hot water, rinse out the salts and powder, clean, oil, and then white glove inspection.

Gives whole new meaning to "this is my rifle, this is my gun. This is for fighting, this is for fun". EH? ;)

I'm a Mosin fan as well. Two 91/30s ('38 Tula and '43 Izzy) and M44. Every time I take one out, though, I want to watch Enemy at the Gates again lol.

38 Tula? Nice!

Mosin... Right now theyre the best value in firearms. Cant beat an average price of $400 for a rifle and 880 rounds that will punch through steel plate.

None of my local LGS carries them for some reason but Big 5 usually has them
