I'm trying to scrap a little bit of money together, so I figured I'd see about getting rid of one gun that I know I will not likely use. If I can't get rid of this, it is going to cost me more to have a PU scope installed, as well as a turned down bolt.
I purchased this from Cabelas a few years ago for $175 (have original recipt). When I saw it on the rack, I was impressed with the condition. Looked like it was test fired in the arsenal, and then stored (built in 1947). No stock imperfections and the metal is in great condition. I believe I fired maybe less than 100 rounds through it (all non-corrosive; Winchester). I like it, but the attached bayonet isn't me. If there is any interest in the markings/arsenal (Izhevsk rifle), just ask and I will get as much info on it as possible. But there are import markings on it…
After picking it up, I went through the process of buying the accessories for it. Got the sling/cleaning kit/ammo pouch as a package off eBay. But the one thing that I wanted was a good set of stripper clips. I found the brass ones from a seller on eBay (total of 20), which work great (as long as you stack the rounds correctly in the clip). I probably only used them for like 40 rounds. The firing pin spring was replaced between the last shot I fired and now (Wolff 24 pound).
Everything mentioned is included, plus 40 rounds of Winchester 7.62x54R ammo (180 Grain; FMJ). That is all I fired through it (well, I did try a box of Winchester's JSP), and I did clean the rifle after each range trip. Looking for $150.
Now, for the sale related bulls***. I do not plan on shipping this out. Really, for the headache to ship it out, I'll keep it. I'm only looking to see if anyone local may want it so I can clear up some extra space in the safe. Not parting anything out, being if I do not sell the rifle, I want to keep all the stuff. Any interested buyers, YOU MUST HAVE A VALID NJ FIREARMS ID CARD, PLUS AN ID TO CONFIRM THE INFORMATION THAT WILL BE PUT ON THE CERTIFICATE OF ELIGIBLITY. I do not need any copies of those two, but just to be able to verify that the information for my records is correct (I will show the same, as well as the paperwork from Cabelas). Two copies will be filled out, one going to you and one staying with me. Any of that is a problem, then please don't bother contacting me. Payment, either Money Order or cash. I will consider a personal check only if you have positive feedback here. Sorry, but a few of my friends have had checks bounce with sales lately. I am located on the border of Monmouth and Ocean counties (Howell). Is on BerettaForum, as well.
Thanks for taking a look.
