    All the above mentioned reason for owning one pretty much fit the bill. I have heard of them not being very accurate, although I personally have yet to find one that is that bad to make it a negative. I own M1891/30's and a Nagant Revolver and love them all. No they are not the most precise mfr. guns in the world and some of that ruggedness is why I love them. I guess you could say it is a "cult" following, but it's one that I am proud to actually be a part of.

    So I ask what is the harm in buying one? Worst case senario is you buy it $100, you hate it, you sell it (you use what money you got and buy more ammo for something else).... I end up with another Mosin! :D

    Mosins are about the last mil surp that can be had truly cheap. But, I did see a 1917 Enfield the other day at a pawn shop for 200 bucks, not bad. I know the SKSs that were cheap when I got mine have escalated beyond bargain status.

    Sorry, guys, I have not read the entire thread, but did somebody mention that the reason why Mosins are popular is their low price point? I want to make sure that point has been covered.

    My '34 Isvest is fun to shoot and is surprisingly accurate - even with me shooting it.

    Of course, the trigger and sear came out of a Finn M39. :cool:

    I have two, a prebubbaed one I paid 25 bucks for and is my dedicated truck gun. The other is a $150.00 Sako Finn M39, which with milsurp heavy ball is very accurate. How accurate? So accurate it has been known to bring tears to other shooters who find their many times more expensive rifles outclassed by a gun they despise.
