At big five sporting goods I found a model 91/30 in 7.62X54 for $79.99- includes a bayonet, ammo pouch, sling and oil can. It's a little beat up, but not bad. Seems kinda like a cool old rifle, although I don't know much about them, what do you guys think?

sounds like a decent price. do the serial numbers match? matching numbers usually increase the price. I think my m44 has numbers on the barrel, bolt and butt plate

If its a little beat up, see if you can get a friendly local FFL to transfer one to you from www.aimsurplus.com.

www.aimsurplus.com/acatalog/Russian_Model_91_30_7_62x54R_Mosin_Nagant.html

These are in excellent, and I mean excellent, condition. I got mine for $90, now they are down to $70, so even with a transfer fee you are ahead, for a gun that is in better shape. Also aimsurplus has good ammo for cheap, I chose Hungarian steel core (insert evil laugh here).

They are somewhat clunky guns but they have ALOT of history behind them. Watch "Enemy at the Gates" and then see if you can resist getting one.

You can see mine pretty clearly here in this pic of my cobbled-together wall rack. Its in-between my M44 and my Garand. How does the one at your local gun store compare?

The one at the store looks a little more beat up. I think I'll check with aim and see what I can do. Thanks guys.

BTW Duke, nice collection.
