I have never been a big fan of refurbed Mosins. The pretty bluing, flaking shellac and forced matched numbers. I feel that they had so much history scrubed off of them. I really like the Warhorses that have that BTDT (Been There, Done That) look. Everytime I come across one I try to buy it, or tread a nice looking refurb of the same make and year for it. Here are a few that I have in my collection.
