Now I need to buy some shitty ammo
you need to get the rest of the family if you dont already have the others.
M38 and M44 will follow
I almost bought a Finn because I really like the stocks but for a first long gun I can't justify the price (yet ).
Recommendations on ammo?
I.e., best of the cheap - what's the best surplus ammo?
just buy some. its a bolt action gun. it will be fine.
I'm just talking about procilivity to mis-fire or explode or something
just get whatever, i've only heard a couple stories about mosins kb'ing.
Goddamit no one corrects my spelling
i spent the night at a holiday inn express.
Polish, Hungarian are what I shoot most of, I get it from AIM (I only live about 25 min. away, so I just go pick all my shit up)
Edit: The M44 is a lot more fun, throws a huge fireball at night and a still very noticable fireball in the day.
Trying to decide between an Enfield jungle carbine and an M38 or M44 for the next one
fuck the mosin!
not even fun to shoot
and the hospital bill was greater than the guns purchase price..
Bulgarian ammo.. but honestly.. my life isnt worth shooting cheap pieces of shit!
Dare I say it?
In Soviet Russia, your gun hurts you
On truck for delivery
wasnt the gun that did that modified?
seems like user error
nope, only "mod" was the bayonet was folded out
no user error.. User error doesnt rip metal apart, at least nothing I have done or seen yet
Yup.. it was user error :Ownedd:
That is what I remembered.. I dont remember Mosins coming with a shitty cheap scope
I want one of those Soviet scopes but I can't justify $250 on a $90 gun
$150 for a decent repro
I actually spent a good deal of time trying to see if something like those old-fashioned Redfield peep sight could be retrofitted. All I found was the Mojo sight, which looks ok, but lacks the "old school" flavor
Then again target sights and a scope on an arsenal refurb Mosin is probably a little ludicrous in and of itself
those are fun to shoot without a scope..
