Flea market score

Discussion in 'Mosin Nagant' started by littlestoney406, Oct 1, 2010.

  1. Was at the flea market today, guy had a ziplock bag sitting on his table looked like about 35 or so 7.62x54R rounds in it. I pick it up and ask how much for it and he said $8 for all three bags. I only saw 2 bags and the other was just a bunch of random stuff and he pointed a tent stake bag, so I took it. When I got home, started to counting and looking at them, there was 92 rounds of x54, 3B 37 I believe is Russian and a VPT 31 which is Finnish. There was also 5 .38 Special, 20 .357 Magnum, 2 30-30, 5 or 6 .22, and one that I assume is 7.5 Swiss, it is stamped GFL 7.5 SVIZZ.

    That's a pretty good deal! I never find things like that at flea markets, more's the pity.

    Why don't I ever find these deals at flea markets?
     
  6. Last trip I made to the gun shop I was talking to the owner and he gave me 40 rounds of once fired 5.56X45 LC brass for free.

    I have never even seen ammo at a flea market or yard sale. Never seen any guns either. Looks like you got a pretty good deal, sometimes it pays to keep an eye out.
     
  8. This flea market always has guys selling guns and ammo. Find real good deals from time to time. Saw the only Remington M91 I had ever seen in real life there a few months back, however it was bubba'd, but still a Remington.
     
  9. The Flea Market in Milton on Rt 60 has a guy there that sells guns and ammo, he's there every weekend.

    Didn't the Milton burn down a couple of years ago? I know the Louisa one has guns all the time
     
  14. It did burn, but they have rebuilt it.
     
  15. I haven't been to Milton since they rebuilt. These did come from Louisa. Several guns there today, just nothing worth bringing back. Hillbilly doesn't allow guns on the lot anymore.

    Is it easy to find in Louisa or can you give a location?
     
  17. It's actually not in Lousia. It's on 23. Which way are you coming from?

    Louisville....I've not been in that area for many years...my track home takes me along Mountain Parkway and 460? to Williamson. Back to the late '70 since using highway 52 in WV.

  19. Come up 23 towards Ashland. Go by where you turn off to Lousia. A couple more miles and you'll pass the power plant on the right and about 1/2 a mile more the flea market sits on the left. Best time to go would be on a Saturday around noon. I've never seen another flea market get up and going later then this one.
