    What exactly is a M10? I've never seen or heard of a Mosin M10 before.


    Any info/stats/pics would be helpful.

    You mean those Enfield knockoffs in .308? That's not a Mosin. Though the Finns made a number of Mosin-based sniper rifles in the 80's that I've never seen stateside.

    i can give you a more detailed answer tomorrow, but from memory of what i was reading in a small arms of the world book last nite , russia adopted an m10 in 1910 which is the same caliber as the 1910 and the m38, m44. it was a bayonetless precurser to the m38...but it was not an m38. and it is called an m10. i had not heard of this before but am hardly knowledgable about russian arms. as an aside, i bought a m44 with a laminated stock, and it is a work of art. i was thinking of adding a m38 but the m10 caught my eye.

    There was a model 1907 Mosin carbine made up to WW1. I have it heard it referred to as a model 1910. Although quite a few were made, these are very rare and few have ever been imported. Your chances of finding one is very slim. I have only seen 2 in all my years of collecting and both were valued in the thousands of dollars.

    The best bet on rare Mosins right now are the pre-war Finns. You can still find some on gunbroker but price is headed north fast.

    Hoppy. my wife would have my head if i traded her for a rifle...any rifle. i do want to buy a mosin m38 with a laminated stock. i don't shoot these rifles. they are just for the history and looking at. but i want one in the best condition possible. i have bought from SOG and others; bought a nice m44 from AIM that really pleased me. anyone have recommendations of a source that is reputable and easy to deal with on a C&R?
