Anyways, I just purchased a Mosin-Nagant for $120. Cabela's just received another huge shipment in so I got to pick the best one out of looks, matching serial numbers, and how well the bolt works. Gonna clean it tonight.
Have you fired one of those things before? A couple buddies of mine bought some and we brought them to the range. Those things KICK. One of them had a steel butt plate. Eff that noise. I'm never firing that one again. The rubber butt plate: maybe.
