I have a friend that specializes in Mosin Nagants if you need parts or something. I am not looking for a basement deal just trying to find one. From what I understand there wasn't many made and they changed them later one which those are even rarer to find.


I know if I can customize a mauser I may be in for some serious cash. I am right handed but shoot leftie due to cross eye dominance. I am fine with lever, pump, and semi auto actions but bolt may be an issue. Either way I want one, maybe more Razz gotta have one for super big game like the Brown bears and Kodiaks , and a .22 just because I can lol. The Germans actually had a kit to switch the nomal mauser to a .22 to save costs on ammo for practice.

I got a mosin that I might would get rid of . They arent rare. Mine is a Tula arsenal made, all matching numbers with a good bore. Wood is so so. I just dont care for them. Good dependable and accurate rifle though. Its a shame you aint in Alabama. They will go for around $125.00 all day. The SVT in above post is what was suppose to replace them during WW2 but the solders werent smart enough to maintain a auto loading rifle, so they went back to the mosin. As far as the eye dominate thing. Close that left eye and practice using the right and you will eventually come around to be able to use which ever eye you choose. It takes some practice though.

As I said I have a friend that specializes in Mosin he is in Va but due to the age of them he can ship to a FFD near me for around the same cost. My main intrist right now lays on the Shotty and the sportirized mauser. As far as the eye dominance thing once I get time I have some exercises that I can do to help my right eye become better. It would be quite benificial to be able to shoot ambidextrios in hunting situations.

Heck, Plumber, I'd trade my FN49 for that SVT-40... Very Happy I've always wanted one of those. Laughing Too bad I don't have my C&R FFL03 anymore. *sigh*. Mosins are lovely rifles. I have a few very interesting pieces, and they were cheap, $100 or so around here. All matching numbers, various wartime and post-war models. Yeah, putting those SVTs in the hands of Russians after the dead-easy Mosin rifles was kind of cruel to the Ruskie farmboys, but... then the SKS came out, and they seemed to work those alright.

I'm sure any of the rifles we're talking about would be fine for bear. Battle rifles used some serious powder loads and lead, and the bolt-action models usually are shockingly accurate. They were just made very well in most cases (wartime variants got a little lackluster due to churnin' 'em out, but... meh... still got the job done).

I think you'd do better getting a Mauser clone (modern make variant) rather than possibly tearing apart a relic, Cuervo, but I'm kind of a "keep 'em as they are" kind of guy. There's a few companies that are milling wonderful modern Mauser receivers and bores that are just perfect, some even in stainless steel. I'd bet the amount of money spent converting a relic versus piecing together a new one would be a wash in price, overall.

Cool

Kyle the thing is the argentine action is superior and can be had as an entire rifle for fairly cheap. Those tend to have barrels that are worn or mistreated and wood that has seen better days. Thus by using just the action and haveing a barrel made I would be breathing new life into it. These actions have been used for everything from the 7.57 all the way to african big bore rifles because they are that strong,durable and reliable. Now if I found one in excellent shape it would go into a collection rather than be torn down.




The 30.06 is good for most game in the continental US, but for what I want to do I need something with more oomph. I would like to go on an outdoormans dream vacation where I would go to alaska and do all the hunting and fishing I could possibly do. Due to the hardcore terrain and weather I need a dependable rifle that can reach out and knock a goat off a mountainside in high winds, drop a Kodiak in its tracks in a blizzard, or take out a moose in heavy woods in a freezing rain. Like I said homeboy don't play games when it comes to his hunting hardware Twisted Evil

Kyle I confirmed from the guy that built that mauser that it is a new barrel. So buying an old beat up 1909 Argentine DSM mauser for this build or builds would be breathing new life into it. I wonder if they can make a .50 that accepts a BMG round? Twisted Evil




I guess so!

The Rock River is a .308, the LAR-8.
The latest is a 5.56 from www.core15.com and is an M4.
2 completely different rifles that both are now mine Twisted Evil

I like how this thread has turned into an anything-and-all gun topic thread...and you guys are more level-headed than the "bubbas" that do nothing but talk sh*t about anything that isn't in their own collection. Laughing Just thought I'd mention that... long live the Brothers of Boomsticks. Laughing

Meanwhile...

Cuervo, I see what you're driving at in Mauserville. Cool. I like where you're going with your dream of the "perfect hunting Mauser." You'll have no problems going into Alaska with whatever you end up with...and, as if it needs mentioning, be sure to post pictures. Very Happy

Kaiser, you're a madman. I like it. You're a one man army at this point. Twisted Evil cheers

Plumber, I think it's the MKIII that is the .308 Enfield, but it's been a while. I wanted one of those only because .303 can be hard to come by, but I think the rifles are clunky and beautiful.

I just horse traded for a Sig 226 in 9mm, tritium sights, beaver tail, jet funnel grip. Can't wait to shoot it. Gun was practically new. He also gave me three nice holsters and extra mags. Traded off some guns I lost interest in.

It's a nice thing about firearms, they're always good for cash, gold or trade... Laughing

I love Sigs, Mike. Sounds like a good deal--I've wanted to add a Sig 9mm to my handgun lineup for a while. All Sigs fit my hand well.

Range report to follow? cheers (I can always live vicariously...)

I'm a big Ruger fan but their LC-9's line kind of scared me off. Right after they came out it seemed the local Cabeles used gun room was flooded with them. I had to wonder "if" people who purchased them were un-happy for some reason. A couple of the local gun shops told me they thought it had to do with the issue of recoil. They heard the same concerning the new smaller Taurus. That lighter/smaller frame and the sharpness of recoil on a 9mm tends to scare some people away. I guess people were getting the LC-9's for their wifes who once shooting them did not like the recoil. I own quite a few of their revolvers and one of my concealed carry guns is a SRC-9 which is a great shooter and very accurate. I am looking into getting one of their LCR's in 38 special.

My buddy bought a LCP for his wife. We and she shot it this Fall and she said "never again". It wasn't much fun to shoot, I'll stick to my SP101. It sure does disappear in the palm of your hand or pocket. If I had to carry, the LCP would be the gun for that need.

Thats the thing about the little guns. Most arent fun to shoot. Not enough grip. But being familier with it and able to shot affective with it is all thats needed for self defence. There are so many that can be fun to shoot for blowing up fruit and mellons.

Congrats on all the new acquisitions K!!

I am a Glock man. Don't through stuff at me.

I have a Glock 22 and 27. I would like to get a 23 eventually.

As far as small guns, the 27. It took a minute to get used to the small grip, but I don't even notice it anymore.

I also have a Rock River with Eotech sights (work issue). Fantastic weapon. Incredibly accurate.

I purchased a Marlin 336C last week without realizing the circumstances of the "Remlin" debacle (Marlin was purchased by Remington, production was moved and quality plummeted). I looked at in the shop and just figured that the sub-par fit of the stock was just typical for a "workhorse" type rifle, but when I got home, I realized the barrel was not properly clocked and the inside of the chamber had some tooling marks and burs. Amazingly, the action is smooth and it shoots straight even with the off-center sights/barrel, which is all I could really ask for I suppose.

TL;DR: Buy an older Marlin if you want a good Marlin.
