I don't know much about Mosin's.........yet.....so don't flame me please. I thought a Mosin was a military Russian made rifle, a clip/magazine fed bolt action from about the pre 60's era. I told a friend about the German Mauser from '42 I have and said "Oh....you have a Mosin!". I humbly ask for a def. of a Mosin. Let the Ribbing begin on my lack of knowledge. BTW.......I have a line on a M44 that looks super clean for $125 I think it fits the Mosin criteria.
