I saw it 3 weeks ago! An M39 Mosin - Nagant 7.62x39!

I finally came in with some cash and bought her! It looks new old stock, covered in that nasty smellyu grease inside and out. Bore is perfect, Came with the original side mounted bayonette.

Stock has some chips but expected for its age. I plan on building it up over time and using a composite stock.

Sucker is HEAVY! Barrel looks to be 22-24" ??

I'll be sure to take pictures once i get home!!

Man am i excited over this LOL

I always considered the "Short 30" ( 7.62 x 39) with the 154 grain SP a great 100 yard deer cartridge as it is close to the 30-30 ballistics. A real piece of history you got there FG.

What a fun gun to own..and cheap to shoot Exclamation

$167 for 880 rounds of 7.62x54R ammo!

Ive been searching for a while and the stuff they got for the rifle is simply awesome.

For the price i paid, i can do a lot more work with add ons before i feel the sting LOL.

All the metal may end up at Ultra Coatings for finishing

I did not know the Mosin Nagant was available n 7.62x39. The only ones I've seen or sold in our store are the 7.62x54's. Interesting, to say the least. Learn something new everyday.

Thanx,

JohnP

P.S., Frontier, how mudh did the Mosin set you back?
