addad a Mauser to the Mosin collection

Postby notabiker » Sun Sep 23, 2012 12:12 pm

i could not help myself. i was at BIG 5 and M48 serb mausers were 299. the sales guy said i will give you another 20 % off today. i guess in the back of my small mind :lol: i wanted one. this will NOT take the place of my Mosins. i just wanted one that was nice while they are out their.
i am in the minority about Endfields, Springfields and M1s. they seem over built and bulky. not saying they are not fantastic rifles. :mrgreen: . can't think of another rifle out their that i can afford and want. i really like the svt 40 but that would cost to much. i like my SKS and Romanian M 44 so much maybe i will double up sometime.

I have been wanting an Ishapore for quite some time. The idea of a .308 with the Enfield platform really interests me. Dont be fooled, the Enfield is quite a fantastic rifle.

i also am in love with mosins. i would like to have a nice example of a few other rifles. i like the M 48 because they were made in the early 50s with good materials and no war . i understand collectors want rare examples with all matching numbers. i just want a nice stock and no rust with good bluing. i am looking forward to tinkering with my 240 dollar Mauser.
nothing more fun than to take a nice MN to the range and show the AR flock their are other fun rifles out their. just because ARs are so popular keeps me from wanting one. :roll:

last year I picked up a Yugo M24/47 at a shop north of Seattle
got tired of people telling me how superior a Mauser was to my Mosins. Granted the old M24 was made on FN tooling in a peacetime economy and is a fine rifle. But for a reliable combat rifle, I'll stick with my Mosins. My M38 has become my favorite
