    Please be truthful...:D:evil:

    I start....my 3 Mosins (1 Izhevsk 1938, 1 Izhevsk 1939 and 1 Tula 1939) were all purchased for $79 each at the now defunct GI Joe's sporting goods. (different periods not all 3 of them together).

    Please mention model, price, year and arsenal (If you know), Round or Hex receiver.

    People that got volume discounts are welcome (bought them by the crate)...but it is not a very fair competiton


    Who is next??

    1941 round receiver 91/30 (tula or the izhevsk plant i think. it has a triangle under the sights if that helps :) ) $50 from local pawn shop that couldnt sell it a couple of years ago because people thought it was old and ugly. great bore and shoots pretty well with bulgarian yellow tip heavy ball.

    A neighbor offered me one for free, but I declined because I didn't want to waste the gas to pick it up. :p

    I would guess a lot of guys are about to say $35.

    I paid $150.

    $75 from one of the club members who picked up a crate of them from SOG last year. Round receiver, to tired to check the arsenal...bore looks like crap even after extensive cleaning and 2 passes with an electrolytic set-up - still shoots pretty well. Gets hauled out once a year for the MultipleMilSurps match.

    Back in the early to mid 1990's Mosins were stupid cheap. Despite the stupid Brady law the early 90's was a pretty good time for gun buying. I use to spend a good portion of my (LCPL and later CPL's) monthly pay check at the monthly Gun Show's around Camp Lejeune, NC....

    Mosins were a really good deal back then. They were sold by JG Sales and Hunters Lodge in Shot Gun News for $39.00 (I wish I'd bought more of them). Usually about $45.00 retail at the shows.

    Around 1996 or so I remember the price went up to $49.00 (gasp!).

    When I finally decided to get my C&R (2008) the were at current price of $79.95.... :banghead:

    I only bought 1 Mosin (round rec) back in the good old days because... Well, you could buy brand new Chicom SKS's retail for $79.00 each. :what: SKS' were just so much funner to shoot and that Norinco yellow box 7.62X39 came in 1440rnd cases for like $59.00....

    I won a 91/30 several years ago from a firearms auction site that was just starting up (can't remember the name of the place, now). Ended up paying about $40 for shipping + transfer in CA. Still not bad!

    I think if we post the year the rifle was bought it would be a more accurate price comparison.

    I bought mine for $99 at Fleet Farm in May 2010.

    I got one in 1969 for the cost of three .223 bullets. Should have kept it but traded when I got a SKS.

    My own best is $55 for a Type 53. A friend of mine, though, picked up 4 dozen M44s at $15 each about 2 years ago.

    I bought a pretty good lookin' one in 1998 for $40 if I remember correctly, along with a $30 ammo can full of the crappy steel-core surplus ammo.

    $79 about 4 years ago for a very nice 1937 Tula. I got it from Big 5 during one of their specials.

    I bought a bunch of M-44's from Century @ 7 years ago.
    They were "U-Fixems" for $15 each,+ $2 fee.
    Worst was a cracked stock,one missing front sight globe,most were missing rods.
    Then I got a "5-fer" deal of "in the wraps" for $200.
    Then IO had a special on M-44's for $40 shipped.

    You can never have enough MN's.

    Well the best price I ever got on a MN was 75 dollars.

    It was actually a mismarked Lee Enfield No 4 Mk 1. I would never have bought a MN.

    It was one heck of a deal on a Lee Enfield though.

    Then they turned me down for a job. Some people.....

    Well, as a matter of fact I bought 2 Chinese T53's for $35 each about 3 years ago. They weren't pretty, but fully functional. I used them to practice my (ahem :() gunsmithing. If I ever need a MN parts gun, BINGO.
