I just Did The Unthinkable

Postby gandog56 » Mon Aug 19, 2013 6:09 pm

I was cruising the local Armslist when I saw an urgent plea, please sell me a Mosin Nagant. So I contacted the guy, gave him a choice between my scoped 1942 Izzy 91/30, or that Chinese T-53 I just got done cleaning up. (Still needs a new stock, though.) Anyways guy wanted the 91/30. So he gets a Scout scoped 2X7 long eye relief Mosin, the accessory pack (bayo, tools, oilcan, etc), and 80 rounds of milsurp ammo.


Of course I only did it because it was a round receiver Izzy I have another one of. Only have one other Mosin scoped though. And it's a red dot sight, no magnification.

Helping to spread the Mosinitis bug!

And I took the money, and just won an auction for a Finnish M28 Civil Guard Mosin Nagant 1927

Well, I just found that it has a Tikka barrel, and is dated 1927, the very first year of production!

I am jealous. It looks like a beauty. But all those Mosins from Finland are.

Right now I'm bidding on an M24 with a Sako barrel.
