    Default mosin nagant 91/30 with russian PU scope. is $400 worth it?

    this dude at the gun shop i work at wants to sell me a russian mosin nagant 91/30 with a russian PU scope. the scope is bought of gun broker by some russian dude and machine mounted by the guy selling it. The gun simply isnt original with the scope but he insists $400 for it. i want to talk him down to $300 cause he is a pushover about some guns. what do you guys think? is it worth $400 for a frigin mosin? or even $300 when i can get a mosin for 90 bucks without a scope. i can understand if the gun came originaly as a sniper rifle or something from russia, but it is not and the mosin is in fair condition. the gun metal is fine but stock is old and surplus worn. i just dont wanna buy this thing and regret i spent so much on one of the most abundant rifles in the world. the scope runs 200 or so but it is alil worn. decisions, decisions!

    $300-400 is the basic price range for a fake Mosin sniper, as mentioned the rifles are about 100, the scope & mount is about 200, so your also paying for the labor to mount it, so that explains the price range.
    But the main thing is the bore, if it looks rough or is counter bored don't even make an offer, just walk away.

    If the scope is mark "made in russia" it's a repro scope, but that's not a bad thing, it's just a newer made scope and they are supposed to be made on old Russian tooling.

    Also the rifle year range makes it look better if the rifle fits in that style
    PE - 1932-1936 (PE is focus adjustable)
    PEM 1936-1940, 1942 for a short time
    PU - 1942-1947

    It's made in Russia no doubt. Has all the standard makings such as the hammer and sickle* I will check the bore tomorrow or so

    he won't he is looking for someone who doesn't know any better, and hoping that was you

    repro scope!!! machined receiver!! this is not worth it at any price no resale value

    there are so many nice rifles out there heck allans armoury has east german marked mosins for $200 or get a stock rifle mis-matching triggerguard for shooter for $ 90 plus

    YOUR INTENDED USE SHOULD DICTATE WHAT YOU BUY. DO YOU HAVE A NEED FOR A MOSIN WITH A VERY OLD DESIGN SCOPE????? IF ITS FOR COLLECTING ITS NOT CORRECT. IF ITS FOR HUNING ITS NOT VERY GOOD FOR IT . IF ITS FOR TARGET THERE ARE A LOT BETTER CHOICES . THE GUNS NOT GREAT AT ANY THING AN ITS NOT A COLLECTIABLE PIECE. THE SCOPE AN MOUNT ARE NOT THAT GREAT EITHER. IF YOU GOING TO BUY A MOSIN TO SHOT OR ACTUALY USE BUT A GOOD SCOPE ON IT AN BUY A MOSIN THAT IN GOOD SHAPE TO START WITH.

    PERSONALY THE M44 AN THE OTHER SHORT BARRELD VARIANTS ARE THE WAY TO GO. THEY HANDEL WELL AN ARE NOT 10 FEET LONG.
