Mosins are fairly cheap, and i would like to build a 95 mauser look alike, with butterknife handle, shanabel fore arm etc. But of course 98 mauser is best to build, just wish I could find vz24 for 80 bucks like I did years ago.
    Oh God! How many '98s I bought on a whim. At one point, I walked into a Big 5 in Santa Maria and they had VZ24s on sale for $59 each plus $15 for the transfer. I asked the Manager how many he had in stock, and he said "22". I said "Not any more".. I bought Parker Hale Barrels that same day from GunParts (Numrich) for $30 each, and Fajen seconds for $48 each. Rounded it out with Bold Triggers for $21 each, and a grand total of $35 each for Machine Work. Add it up: $194 each. I sold them (20) over the next year for $350-550 each. All I had to do was take a couple of prospects to the range and shoot some.....Easy money....
