    Ok what can the mosin nagant guys tell me about these?

    My brother called and saked about a remington mosin nagant. I know they are around abd I have seen them in 30-06 before but I dont know much about them.

    The date is not stamped wery well but it is clearly stamped 30-06. He didnt get the serial number but the guy selling it claims he has had it since the 30's and he bought it as is new direct from remington as a surplus rifle.

    What are they worth? This guy is asking $600 any thoughts?

    Not worth $600, as it's been converted to 30-06. If it were still 7.62x54R, it might be worth that much depending on condition. I'd pass. :)

    The Bannerman 30-06 conversions from the 20's and 30's are quite collectible and somewhat expensive while at the same time are completely unsafe to shoot

    once again a bannerman is not unsafe to shoot... lapin's book (the text on that page at mosinnagant.net is copied directly from the book) has a number of errors even in it's latest edition and this bit of misinformation is one of them

    bannermans are the only .30-06 conversions that are safe to shoot but are rare enough to justify not shooting it

    i wouldnt want to shoot it, as the 30.06 round is a higher pressure round than the original 7.62x54r round. the other thing is that the 30.06 bullet is slightly smaller in diameter than the russian 7.62. the 30.06 is .308 and the russian bore is about .313, so it may not be very accurate.

    $600 is way to high, i might pay $50 for it.

    just get the original caliber rifle, you can get a remington mosin nagant for much less that $600 and 7.62x54r ammo is cheaper anyway.

    allegedly the safety issue stems form the oringinal x54r barrels being cut off and re threaded at the breach end allowing for a them to be rechambered to the smaller diameter 30-06, this resulted in a barrel with a shank short enough that the steel is paper thin where chambers shoulder is because of the bbl's taper .

    regardless of how many errors are in that book I wouldn't shoot one for love or money
