I was wondering what is a good price for a mosin? Are they a decent gun? DO I just have an addiction for collecting Russian surplus guns?:cheer:
Strictly speaking this is untrue. The late "Last Ditch" Arisakas are certainly questionable at best, yet the rifles produced before and early in the war were definately no worse than any other countries', and a whole lot better than some.FutureMarine said:Arisakas are a bad choice for anything else besides a wall hanger. Not that accurate, reliable, and rounds prices go through the celing at if your lucky 1.25-1.75 per round.
What those old soldiers said was in all probability true. The weapons they had were crappy because they were made cheaply when Japan was feeling the pinch. The rifles made prior to and during the first stages of the war were of a far higher quality than the "last ditch" Japan-rosing-wal-prease-rock-up-mama-san lifres.FutureMarine said:out of curiosity, what qualities do they have that make them good. I've seen interviews of old japanese soldiers about their rifle on the history channel and they said their rifle had the qualities i listed above
