Does the berea gun show usually have a large selection of mosin nagants? I am looking to get a finnish m39 as these are supposed to be the most accurate mosin nagants...Do you think Ill be able to find one in good condition at the Berea show on March 4th? ANd how much do you expect it will cost? Im also looking to buy about 3 30 round mags for my ak as well as adjustable slings for my ak and sks. For what Im lookin for, do you think it will be worth it to go?

Oh and one more thing, I believe it said you have to be 21 to get in, I wont be 21 for another 6 months, but if I go with a friend who is 21, will they let me in then?

I think you'll find what you want, and probably a few things that you didn't intend on buying also.....and yes, if you're friend is 21 they'll let you in....i took my kids, and had no problems......I don't even remember being carded when I paid at the entrance.....good Luck.....

hey man. Age is not an issue. I am now 26 years old and I've been going to gun shows since about 5 with my Dad. Never, ever have I been carded at the gates of any gun show. Now a days I also bring my daughter along ( she loves em'). As far as Nagants. Thats where I bought mine. There is always about 80 to 100 nagants in any building there. May I suggest though, there is one guy who is a private collector of nagants, who will have 44's 38's 91/30's of all origin. Since they are his private collection he usually brings about thirty of em, and they are all graded by number from 1 to 10 on rarity, bore, stock condition, things like that. I hand picked my 38 from his lot, which he had rated a 9. I swear its the cleanest, nicest bore, and stock Nagant I have ever seen in person. I paid about 20 bucks more than from some of the other guys. But it is a friggin tack driver and beautiful to boot, all matching numbers, sling, and acc. kit also. I walked away down 135.00 with the utmost favorite rifle of my collection.
As far as AK stuff...You can't make it down an isle without tripping and falling dick first in a pile of AK stuff...so that won't be a problem..
Good luck, cuz you are making the right choice with a nagant. Accurate rifles and you just can't break em or shoot em out.

I went to the June show, last year and there were only 3 buildings open......if I had to guess on table #s, I would say around 75ish......just a rough guess though....I will be there on March 4th,(my birthday) looking for some new toys, I mean guns.........afterward, Millertime85 and I plan on driving to Grand River for some shooting pleasure......
