who is into military surplus rifles?  i just bought a mosin nagant and a sporterized k 31.
i'm sure there are a lot of mosin owners but the swiss rifle is a little more obscure.  i think there was only 500k or so produced.

44's are running between 2 and 3  hundred $. # 4 Enfields are running 3 to 5.

forgot, I have 2 of the Indian NATO 2A1"s. Shoots the 7.62 NATO rd./308. They were designed after the SMLE 303. But was built from the ground up in 1965 and the metal treatment was different from what they had around the turn of the century when the SMLE was made. I have a 1917 LSA SMLE, year before last a buck at 125 paces with iron sites. d2

I had a .303 at one time.  It was a nice gun.  Shot straight.  Hit hard.  Not very flat shooting and difficult/expensive to put a scope on...

Several of my 6.5s are Ackley Improved.  With a very slow powder and some handloading you can get amazing ballistics.

I have three I would sale, but it will be hard to find anyone who will pay what I am asking. Although it is less than what I have seen advertised. d2

don, even the plain old 91-30 mosins are going for 150-200 around here.  there was a time when you could get one for about 60 dollars at any gun shop.  there used to be a lot of mausers floating around the pawn shops in columbus for next to nothing too.  then again, i remember a '70 or '71 cuda being on a tote the note lot for about 2000.00 dollars and chevelles and early 60's impala supersports for 1000-1500.
