Are we at the end of cheap C&R guns?

    I've been a C&R license holder for four years and have accumulated some great inexpensive pieces. However, I've noticed for the first time in collecting that common inexpensive pieces have dried up from the common vendors.

    Are the days of the cheap Mosins, SKS, K31s, M98s, etc. gone?

    And since most modern rifles are fully auto, what will replace the C&Rs?

    What pistols will become C&R eligible in the next 10 years?

    Cheap Mosin Nagant's are still aplenty. $69 at AIM I think for a 91/30? (plus shipping its just below $100, about what I see them for at gunshows - which I still think is a little high considering how many of them I see).
    Russian capture mausers are pretty cheap as well - for a nazi marked WWII piece. (many of which participated in some interesting history- unlike the Mosin Nagant rack queens for sale)
    K31's have gotten more expensive, but still a great deal.

    SKS's have gotten more expensive, but I think that there hasnt been a big introudction of surplus SKS's into the market for awhile.

    So in short, I think there days of affordable surplus guns are not over yet, there are still plenty of warehouses around the world of WWII era guns waiting to be imported.
