Traded my Charles Daly .45 1911 for a Mosin Nagant


As well as a a shit ton of extras and ammo to the tune of

1250 147gr Russian in 2 spam cans + loose
1300 147gr Romanian silver tip in 2 spam cans + loose
174 184gr Hungarian HB
98 147gr Cupro-Nickle WWI "Sniper Rounds"
115 182gr BTSP Russian Yellow Tip "long range"
20 203gr Silver Bear

These descriptions are directly from the list he gave me and not checked

Some of the extras include

4 Ammo pouches
3 Complete cleaning/tool kits
1 Complete bolt w/extractor
1 bolt head w/extractor
100 Stripper clips
1 Complete trigger group
Plus a lot more

Also included,
100 pieces of .223 brass
125 pieces of .45 brass
62 pieces of .38 brass
2 .38/.357 speed loaders
a holster for a .357 revolver.

ETA: 50 rounds of .38

I got a call today asking if I had a holster and/or any ammo I would be willing to trade for an SKS. I traded 6 boxes of Blazer Brass, an OLD leather holster and a UTG large frame auto, universal shoulder holster (he LOVED this POS) for


A Chinese SKS with his receipt from the pawn shop
18 loaded stripper clips
chest rig
spare parts

And no, this is not some wet behind the ears kid, he is 43 and has a few other guns, just not fond of these.

Good trade.

inb4 fellas are butthurt about how you traded "good american steel" for "godless commie crap"

I would have done that trade in a heartbeat, especially considering 1911's certainly aint my thing.

It was a Charles Daly, not exactly "Good American steel"

Plus, I still have another CD as well as 4 other 1911s

Hell yes. Keep it all for the upcoming apocalypse.

I checked up after posting, and realized they seem to be cheaper import 1911s. My bad

Makes it an even better deal for you!

Only way I'd probably own another 1911 is grabbing a $300 norinco.

Whatever you trade for...

If it you like it, if it makes you happy, if you go out and have fun with it...

It's a good trade.

Kind of my thought, I have enough spare parts (minus the receiver and barrel) to build another which would give me 3. Plus I plan to pick up 2 or 3 more.

Did you shoot the mosin first? Some of those bolts can sure get stuck....

Ammo alone is worth the 1911 so good job!

Don't knock them too much, not a lot of parts and simple to work on. An AR-15 is great for SHTF until a spring breaks....

To be honest, I figure a firearm that has been in every major conflict during the last 120 years is worth keeping 1 or 6 around.

Get out another until you can replace the spring. No problemo.

I would trade a custom built Les Baer for a Finnish SAKO 1937 MM gold plack marked M28/30 in a heartbeat.

No I am not kidding. Only 440 were made. Most are in museums.

How come you guys hate "fudd" deer rifles, which are highly refined consumer products,

but you love crusty old russian drainpipes?

Interdasting

also, buying off-brand autoloaders of any type is a real crapshoot

if you added up the actual dollar value of what was traded, that would be the best indicator of whether or not it was a good trade

from a philosophical standpoint, trading an off-brand 45 for a old commie bolt gun isn't exactly something to get all excited about either way

just a few years ago I saw those mosins for sale at $69

Most of the domestic "deer" rifles made these days are minute of barn. I am not talking about Sako, Tika, or the other good imports, but american made junk...aka Remington. While I'm not a russian gun fan, I have been Highly impressed with the accuracy of Finnish Mosins, my SAKO M28/30 in particular.

Well, for one thing, ""fudd" deer rifles, which are highly refined consumer products," have no history or personality. Also, I have started to have an interest is collecting the older military rifles with a lot of wood

Good deal on both, but best on the SKS.

+ from what I've read. I have a Yugo and it is 100% but the China seems to be a better gun from what I've read.
