    7.62x54r was a popular cartrige, it could have been a number of things. Although, nothing I can think of has a fixed magazine.

    The AVS-36 (SKS's older brother, if you will. It's what the SKS was based off of) had a removable box mag;

    So did the SVT-40 (different designers)

    Mosin-Nagants have hinged mags, but are bolt action, but could like similar, with the bolt locked. However, they don't have underfolding bayonets, and the m44's folding bayonets folded off to the side.

    In any case, if it's truly a 7.62x54r in semi-auto, for $250, he stole it.

    That avs-36 looks about right... But for 250$ that guy robbed him.

    AVS36 is select fire weapon, it had to be Class3 type of transfer. We wouldn't be talking $250.

    I doubt these rifles exist on US soil but if they do I would be extremely surprised if there would be more than a couple of them. I've seen the bayo going for $1K.

    AVS36 is super rare even in Russia, very few Russian museums have them. The one in Moscow doesn't even have the bayonet and I didn't actually see the rifle there, it was in storage. I saw one in Pskov (it did have bayo). The only other place I was told to have it is Kalashnikov museum in Izhevsk.

    Perhaps they exist in Finland

    One of these would be a "steal" at $250.......but, it's 7.62x54r, and I'd imagine some people might think it were an SKS......

    :thumbsup:

    Many people think Russian SKS rifles are "rare". They are not. The Albanian is the rare one.

    :cool:

    Russian SKS's are rarer than Chinese or Yugo ones.

    swedish lungman (don't recall exact spelling) looks like a giant sks but is chambered in 6.5x55 swede. Also FN 49 might lok similar but would be 7mm mauser or 30-06

    AGREED!

    If it was an SVT-40, the gun now sells for around $1200 and the bayonet for about $250!!!!!

    I wish I had bought one years ago when I saw them at the gun shows for $450:crying:
