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
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.
. 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.
