Big 5 trip today

Postby Marauder 1 » Wed Jan 09, 2013 7:47 pm

Ran by Big 5 to get some shoes, while I was there they had 1 Mosin Nagant a 1943 that was so packed with cosmoline that you could not see down the barrel. I was thinking of buying it until I asked the price. 219.00! I almost spit out my soda when he said that. The rifle was nothing to write home about and I've got my sites set on an M28/76.

Wow..

I can beat that, last year at a gun show there was a guy with an average run of the mill 91/30 he was asking $700 for. My 12 year old little girl asked me what was so special about that one?? I said nothing, he was just tryin to ask more than it was worth since the price of guns has gone through the roof. SKS's that had been goin for around $250 to $300 were goin for $500 and were ROUGH!!looking There were no deals to be had. I bought a holster. :lol:

went to big 5 a while back to help a buddy pick a good mosin. they had one 1931 91/30 hex for $180. they obviously didnt realize the hex was any different than the round recievers they get normally because that was the standard price. before we looked at it and I saw that it was a hex i commented on the high price...thinking it was a normal round reciever probably pumped out in 15 mins in 1945. the girl behind the counter began to explain to me that it was an antique and that not very many mosin nagants were made....i then asked her if she thought 50 million was a small number....

Ahh you should have played along and said really? How do you know so much about former Russian Military firearms.. I did that once at one of my local big fives to a kid behind the counter. I just let him go on and on.. The Manager who knows me and knows I run this site was cracking up. I wonder if he ever told him..
