I decided I wanted to purchase an inexpensive, cheaper to shoot rifle that I could stockpile a lot of crappy surplus ammo for. I narrowed it down between an SKS and a Mosin Nagant. Well, I went to the gun shop today to browse, and ended up finding a Mosin chambered in 7.62 X 54R for $129 OTD and it came with a TON of accessories. Two ammo pouches, sling, oiler, bayonette, and some little pouch w/ some tools in it. My gun guy only had two boxes of ammo left though. I went to the range with the gun still covered in heavy left over oil to try it out. It shot and felt a LOT like the old Springfield 30-06 I used during my first year of deer season. I only shot one of the two boxes I had for it. Since I was not prepared to go to the range right afterwards, I had to buy a cheap set of foam ear plugs and a few paper targets. I have done a lot of reading about these rifles, and decided for the price, it would be worth. I might even go back later to pick up another one if I like this one as much as I think I will. Anybody else have one they really enjoy shooting?
