Go here (http://surplusrifle.com/). There's a couple of different models & calibers, scroll down.

Good luck on the ammo for some of them...

The price is right...but the ammo is expensive unless you roll your own...and...you will need some special clips to load it because the rifle doesn't have a magazine as such. However, if you get around the difficulties they can be fun to shoot.

If you are just getting into Milsurps, a Nagant would be as cheap to purchase and the surplus ammo is not nearly the problem to find or afford.

Oh....as to what kind of rifle they are..... Lee Harvey Oswald used one on a shocking day in American History in November of 1963.

Lee Harvey Oswald used one on a shocking day in American History in November of 1963.

The shock of course was that he had "Bubbaed" a precious $20 milsurp by adding a scope and an extra team on the grassy knoll.
