    Because the Mosin is the most accurate sniper rifle ever made and I'm going to make it better. Don't you ever read CODforums.com? Duh!!

    I don't think there were any matching numbers on this rifle. But it shoots well.

    Oh good... at least you used one of the more rare hex ones instead of the dime a dozen round ones... sigh

    Does it count as bubbafying if you use a CNC machine?

    Dude,

    Put a Primary Arms red dot on it, add some krylon and you are set.

    I don't get what all the Russia about bubba'ing a mosin. It's an $80 rifle that there are literally millions of.

    It's not some super rare historical rifle owned by Sun Tzu that costs eighty million bucks.

    I think it looks like a cool project.

    I guess with the scope you'll be able to shoot through other peoples plates with greater ease.

    I'll buy every Mosin you own at 80 bucks each. I've also seen people destroy Mosins worth well over $1,000 before. Most people never realize when they have a rare one and destroy it in their ignorance.

    Fine... http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=413586184

    That's one you guys would have probably thought was crap and refinished because of the stock. Sold for $3k.

    Or something like this... just a carbine right? Looks like an M44.. $1200

    http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=401345336

    As with any military surplus rifle, some versions are more rare and collectible. The problem comes when you bust out the hacksaw or milling machine and don't do your research first. Could have just bought a top notch shooter after you sold it to a collector that appreciates it for what it is. The more common collectible ones will run in the $400-600 range depending on what it is. Still enough to go grab yourself a Remington SPS or something and probably get yourself a better shooter, recall and all.

    So all that said, if you don't want to let people take their guns they own and do what they want with them why not make good cash offers on them.

    Every time I have offered a Nagant I get my balls busted tell they turn blue and low baled on how they only sell for 79$ and that they should only bring 50-125$.

    Kind of funny for a gun like a Remington or Westinghouse, or 38 carbines then they jump back to the current guns that are on sale at AIM or SOG and want to offer a low ball...

    I will make you a one time offer on mine, 4k, take it or leave it. You come get them out of the safe.
    never know there may be a 3000 gun in there.

    What you say.

    When I see a good deal on a collectible rifle I offer up money for it... every time. I've saved a few from Hyatts that were listed as regular 91-30's. Heck I offered to clear ilivas out of his mosins at his value of $80/rifle. Happily buy every Mosin you have at that same figure ;)

    Oh and for the record my mosin sniper isn't clunky. The bolt is smooth and it shoots less than 1" groups if you do your part. It's also in (more or less) the original 1943 condition. If you want a target shooting Mosin, grab the sniper and enjoy the fact that you're shooting a weapon that was an actual sniper rifle in a World War. That's some serious history.
