Everyone seems to have one


March 26, 2009, 01:51 PM
Mosin Nagant.

Anyone else agree? What other rifles does it seem like everyone has somewhere?

I have a 10/22 but neither of the others.

The Remington 870 pump shotguns seem to be pretty popular but to be honest I don't know many people that have them anymore but I know several that have had them at one point or another.

March 26, 2009, 01:53 PM
10/22 much more so than anything else I can think of.

March 26, 2009, 01:54 PM
Let me fix that for you:

10/22 Marlin Model 60


March 26, 2009, 01:56 PM
I don't have any of them

March 26, 2009, 01:58 PM
I don't have any either. And Rubber Duck got it, the mod 60 should be in there instead of a 10/22:D

March 26, 2009, 02:00 PM
Nope none of the above.
but I do have a 60C.

March 26, 2009, 02:02 PM
All of them and the 870.

March 26, 2009, 02:03 PM
I only have a Yugo SKS... but I have mentally purchased the other two before.

March 26, 2009, 02:05 PM
Several Mosins and an SKS, but no 10/22...and don't intend on getting one.

March 26, 2009, 02:16 PM
None of the above.

I am not a 10/22 fan.

I do have a Marlin 99M1. A sweeter, lighter squirrel hunting semi-auto has never been built. Except for the gritty/heavy trigger.

March 26, 2009, 02:19 PM
Mosin Nagant

I don't own any of those.

March 26, 2009, 02:21 PM
I don't have any of those. I must be a nobody. :)

March 26, 2009, 02:22 PM
If i were to pick a uber popular rifle....the marlin 336. ARs are "big", but a lot of people like M14s better (and vise versa) so those are out of the question....but most people seem to like the 336.

March 26, 2009, 02:24 PM
What about a 30-30 lever action. Bet a lot of people also have one of those.

March 26, 2009, 02:25 PM
i have the 1022, and the mosin nagant, but not an sks.

my brother does though

March 26, 2009, 02:26 PM
I don't have any.

Do have an AR which is the newest must have for most people. That and the AK.

March 26, 2009, 02:28 PM
Everyone has a;

Marlin model 60
Marlin 336
Remington 870

March 26, 2009, 02:48 PM
None of the above.
I don't like the 10-22.
I like Mausers better than the Russian.
I don't own any Semi-auto shoulder arms of any type.

March 26, 2009, 02:51 PM
I don't have a Mosin, but a few have caught my attention before.

But I do own a 10/22, and 2 SKS's at the moment. Marlin Model 60 wouldn't be a bad addition in the future, .22s are always welcome.

March 26, 2009, 02:52 PM
I agree with the 870. I have one as well but As this was the rifle board I left it out. I guess less people own a mosin then I thought. Im not going to get into the mod 60 vs 10/22 debate thats just as bad as .45 vs 9mm.

March 26, 2009, 03:30 PM
I don't have an SKS, I have a Mosin that my father paid 15 dollars for back in 1968 and only 2 10/22's

March 26, 2009, 04:54 PM
Everyone seems to have one 10/22 Mosin Nagant SKS

Had a 10/22 - sold it due to accuracy issues, have Glenfield Marlin 70, Springfield 87A and Winchester 190

Mosin Nagant - want one but too expensive here in Canada, but am willing to wait for the right deal.

SKS - yes, Norinco, original detachable mag, 2 MOA rifle. Ugly, but love it.

March 26, 2009, 05:04 PM
The only firearm I have that was mentioned is the Remington 870. I have no .22lrs, no .30-30s, lever action rifles, nor Russian firearms.

March 26, 2009, 05:27 PM
Marlin Model 60

That's funny. I have all three from with in the last calendar year. Hmmm.. must mean I do my pre-purchase research on THR.

March 26, 2009, 05:44 PM
Of those mentioned, I have:

March 26, 2009, 05:53 PM
I do own a 10/22, but the only original part left is the receiver ...

I'd think everyone should have a .30-30, and a bolt-action .30-06.

March 26, 2009, 05:54 PM
Marlin M60 SS
Many Mausers

Got a lot more not mentioned.

Had an SKS, but they aren't real accurate as a rule. Sold it for a good profit.


March 26, 2009, 08:28 PM
I have no intent on getting a 10/22. My other bolt .22's have ruined all other guns for me, she is an anchutz.

SKS - wouldn't mind getting another

Mosin Nagant, would like to get one, but the only whole ones I can find around here are 300 + (I could get one without a font sight post for 99).

March 26, 2009, 08:31 PM
Oh, and a mossberg 500 should also be on there. I find that either you have an 870 or a 500 but not both. Then the person tends to stick to that company.

I'd have to modify the lever action .30-30, only because while I do have a .30-30, it isn't lever action. There is enough of the bolt .30-30's out there to just include them in the .30-30 genre.

March 26, 2009, 08:31 PM
I have a 10/22 and a Mosin Nagant, but no SKS or 870.

March 26, 2009, 08:32 PM
Got 'em all, and then some.

10/22 x 2, SKS-YUGO x 1, Mosin-Nagant x 8, 870 Express x 1, AK47 x 2, S&W 686-1 x 1, GLOCK 21 x 1, etc,,,,,,

March 26, 2009, 08:33 PM
I have the 10/22 (got rid of my model 60!!!! happily...
dont have an sks.. AR-15 instead...
thought about a mosin... probably should have gotten it while my local shop still had them readily available... could have walked out of the shop with a mosin and a wooden crate of ammo for less than 600 bucks.. too bad!!!

March 26, 2009, 08:36 PM
I have one on the list... ooops Rubber Duck changed it. I have two on the list.

Im gonna buy a Mosin soon I think.

March 26, 2009, 08:51 PM
I have 3 10-22's but no sks or mosin's. I thought 10-22 was a factory option with all ford pickups.

March 26, 2009, 08:53 PM
I've got an M44 but none of the others. Did have a 10/22, sold it to my brother-in-law for my nephew.

March 27, 2009, 11:01 AM
I assumed alot of people had a mosin, as they can be picked up in the states(at least mine) for 100 or less at a gun show. Thats how I got mine and everything matched but the bayo. You just have to inspect them is all

March 27, 2009, 11:09 AM
10/22- no
Mosin Nagant-never
SKS- selling it soon

The Deer Hunter
March 27, 2009, 11:13 AM
It comes as no surprise to me that a sub $100 rifle is very popular among gun owners.

March 27, 2009, 11:21 AM
Err, lots of us without expensive toys have or have had one of the above.:D

Some of us may have forgotten what life used to be like before pay raises or two incomes under one roof. Did I say that?

March 27, 2009, 11:39 AM
10/22- not yet, got me a cz452 lux first
Mosin- yes
SKS- doubtful, but you never know
870- I have one in the house I can use, but it aint mine.

March 27, 2009, 11:54 AM
Did have a 10/22, sold it to my brother-in-law for my nephew.

I bet the 10/22 was cheaper to feed! :D

I don't have any on the list either...I wonder how that happened? Mossberg 500 should probably be on the list, but I don't have one of those either...I have a 600...I think the only difference is the ribbed barrel???

March 27, 2009, 12:04 PM
change your title to "Everyone Needs to Have One" and you are good to go.

SKS- selling it soon

oh really? Whacha got, friendo?

March 27, 2009, 12:17 PM
I had a 10/22. Didn't like it. Sold it.

I had two Mosins. Shot one. Didn't like it. Sold it. Still have the other, but it's still in reeking Russian grease/mold amalgamation.

I have an SKS. Never have shot it. Also still in (really really reeking) grease.

I'm weird, I guess.

I'd rather have a Marlin 60 and some lever guns to play with, when it comes to toy rifles.:)

March 27, 2009, 02:22 PM
Mosin - not yet
10/22 - i like things that go bang rather than pop
SKS - Russian and a Yugo
Mossberg 500 Cruiser

March 27, 2009, 05:10 PM
got 2 10/22's. my first .22 cal rifles. one 870 express. and a marlin 336 in .30-30. would have preferred it in .35 rem. next is an m1 carbine.

March 27, 2009, 05:13 PM
I don't have any of them, but I plan to buy a 10/22 someday if not a Marlin-60.

I have no intention of ever owning a Mosin or an SKS.

March 27, 2009, 05:21 PM
(2) 10/22 - Lov'em
(4) SKS's - Like'em
(1) 870 - Gotta have one right?
(0) Mosin Nagant - never tried one

March 27, 2009, 05:22 PM
10/22 in stainless 4x scope with see through rings.

91/30 nagant.. (my favorite) :D

M38 nagant. flame thrower

SKS, norinco, folding stock, 4x scope, hi cap mags, (the boys favorite)

shotgun alot of people have..

mossberg 500. 18 in , buckshot beside the bed.. anti intrusion gun.


March 27, 2009, 06:01 PM
10/22 - Check
Mosin - Check
SKS - Check :)

It also seems that a lot of people have a Mossy 500. Oh, and either a Buckmark or a Ruger pistol.

March 27, 2009, 09:15 PM
10/22 - avoided it because "Everyone has one", I didn't quite care for their looks and the 10/22 name seems to carry a price premium. Went with a Remington 597 and a Romanian trainer.

Mosin - my first rifle (and second firearm) I have ended up with three because they are cheap (both gun and ammo), reliable, look good, have a satisfying recoil and have been accurate enough for me so far.

SKS - would like one, but the lowest price around here is about $250.

March 28, 2009, 12:18 AM
One Norinco SKS.
Two MN 44s.
Do not have a 10/22.

But the ancient Savage .22 is fun. All of my guns, including the Mini 14 & 30 have no gimmicks or gear (except carry bags) and are all equally fun:).

March 28, 2009, 07:41 AM
I though it was


March 28, 2009, 08:06 AM
Had an SKS years ago. Wish I still had it. Don't have the others [yet]

March 28, 2009, 08:29 AM
i own exactly none of the above.

What's a 10/22?


March 28, 2009, 08:39 AM
10/22? Yep..got five of them.

Mosin? Yep..got two of them.

SKS? Yep...got two of them.

I've got a 30/30 lever gun, and a Mossberg (Sears) pump gun too.

March 28, 2009, 01:43 PM
10.22s are very popular over here. Here's mine:


March 28, 2009, 01:47 PM
around me, anything that isn't a handgun on the firing line is gonna most likely be an AR, followed by M1As and AKs

March 28, 2009, 01:59 PM
I have all three forever...

March 28, 2009, 02:58 PM
The only one you need is a Ruger 10/22 or another 22 rifle of your choice. The rest are luxuries. I own neither a SKS or MN and don't want to own either. I have a Mini-14 as my fun gun. But aren't they all fun?

March 28, 2009, 03:25 PM
Mosin is the only one of those in the house for me.

Stuff that seems to show up at the range all the time:
Marlin 60

Brian Dale
March 28, 2009, 07:50 PM
In my part of the world.....Everyone has a;
Marlin model 60
Marlin 336
Remington 870

336 and 870 here;
the Model 60 went to a niece, a nephew or a friend's kid some years ago.

I shoot a Rem 510 bolt action .22 from the 1950s now. Does using a single shot .22 make me look like a snob? ;)

Got a 91/30, but never had an SKS.

I had two Mosins. Shot one. Didn't like it. Sold it. Still have the other, but it's still in reeking Russian grease/mold amalgamation.

I have an SKS. Never have shot it. Also still in (really really reeking) grease.

Ian once christened that stuff the "Mighty Soviet Cosmoline Of Revolutionary Doom (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=239660)." :D

Mr White
March 28, 2009, 08:46 PM
Calibre44, you have a recoil pad on your 10/22??? :confused: You Brits can't be that wimpy, can you? :D

Oh, and several Mosins, 2 SKSs and one 10/22 (with NO recoil pad)

March 28, 2009, 09:09 PM
I have several Mosins and one SKS but not a 10/22. No Ruger's in this house, I just don't care for them, never did.

March 28, 2009, 09:09 PM
Yep own a stainless 10/22 and a 870. But I do own a steyr rifle , a husqvarna revolver in 7.5x22 Swiss (if you have any ammo for sale PM me) and a ATC M4 rifle/handgun jam-o-matic pile.

March 28, 2009, 09:21 PM
I have all three. Just put a bull barrel on the 10/22. It's pretty darn accurate, but I want to get a Volquartsen hammer for it. That's supposed to help the crappy factory trigger. Plus about 10% of the time it fails to fire due to light primer strikes. Hopefully the new hammer will help that too.

SKS can't hit the broad side of the barn with cheap ammo (Hotshot, etc). Acceptable with Wolf, Golden Tiger, etc. 100% reliable as only a Commie gun can be.

Love my Mosins, M39 is a sweetheart, 91/30 is a fun beater. And I've got a Type 53 receiver I'm building a custom money pit rifle out of.

March 28, 2009, 09:29 PM
don't have any of them... WAIT
!!!! I do have a 10/22... it currently resides at the bottom of the Ohio River. Why? Cuz it was a PoS...

March 28, 2009, 10:53 PM
none of the ones on the original list. :)
i do however have a mod 60

March 29, 2009, 07:20 AM
Calibre44, you have a recoil pad on your 10/22??? You Brits can't be that wimpy, can you?

Oh, and several Mosins, 2 SKSs and one 10/22 (with NO recoil pad)

Lol:D ... no it's just to extend the stock slightly. Mind you I wouldn't mind one on my Winchester 94 Trails End - that crescent stock can 'bite in' on full .44 Mag loads when shooting prone!

Mr White
March 29, 2009, 11:56 AM
Lol ... no it's just to extend the stock slightly. That's what I figured, but I just couldn't resist. :evil:

My Win 94 in .32 Win Spl has a bit of a kick for such a small caliber too, because the gun's so dang light. I use the exact same recoil pad you have on my Mosin Nagant M44. That small gun with the 7.62x54 round is a real shoulder thumper

March 29, 2009, 12:37 PM
Sold off the Mosins and the 10/22. Also sold the Russian SKS's off several years ago. Still have the Norinco SKS. It is accurate and shot better than the Ruskies.

March 29, 2009, 01:50 PM
91/30 si.
SKS si.
10/22 no.

-And I'm in no hurry to get one.

March 29, 2009, 03:42 PM
Let me fix that for you:

Marlin Model 60

+1. :)

March 29, 2009, 03:52 PM
All I'm missing is the SKS. :)

March 30, 2009, 07:08 PM
Thanks for all the great info on good rifles. I just bought my first collector's piece. It is a Mosin-Nagant 1891 model. Bit this one is rarer than most, as it was made in America at New England Westinghouse, in 1915. It's a beauty and shoots great. No wonder so many people swear by them

Dark Skies
March 30, 2009, 07:26 PM
Lee Enfield No. 4
Mosin Nagant M44

The way I approach is that I *NEED* to have...

Rim Fire Rifle
SA Rimfire Revolver
SA/DA Large Caliber Revolver
Centerfire Rifle

I happen to have a MN, 10/22 and mossberg 500 for the long guns.


March 31, 2009, 01:43 PM
I too must answer (d): none of the above :confused:
had a 10/22 -- traded it off, never replaced
not a mosin fan
have a platform for 7.62X39 that I like more than SKS
