Just checking to see if anyone may have or know someone who may have a low cost Mauser in 8mm, or Enfield. Nothing collector grade or gun safe status. Just starting out in these old rifles and looking to see if it will be something I can get into. Let me know thanks! ******UPDATED 12/12/18****** Price range I'm looking at is $125-$275 as stated in the original post no uber collector's or museum pieces, thanks.

Ive got a 1942 Izhevsk with the sling, bayonet, and oil can I can let go for 230. 250 with some 70s mfr Russian surplus ammo.

Carbines are gonna be a little more expensive, as are hex rifles. The mosins arent 99$ specials anymore so youre gonna have to define cheap. Ive got an M38, M44, and several 91/30s.

I can see myself part with one of my better 91/30s with the sling, bayo, and oil can in original box along with 20rds of russian 54r for 275. Its hard to find a 100 dollar mauser or mosin in this day and age..youre about 5 years past prime thanks to embargo and war in ukraine. I hear steyr mannlichers are still in the under 200 range. My advice is go go classic, aim, and jg and see what these rifles retail for, then factor in that youre not stuck removing cosmoline in the winter time, and as long as someone offers you less than retail its probably a decent deal.

Good luck man. Me personally the only things id sell for more than your asking price are the lighter carbines liks 38 and 44, or a hex receiver or something with the archangel stock. Whatever you wind up with, Mosins are like rabbits..they multiply! Im up to six or so.

Wow, JG used to be one of the largest retailers of Mosins. As of this morning, this is the extent of their offerIng. The supply is indeed drying up.

@mpzreb17 I hear ya, I remember 6 - 7 years ago being able to walk into Long Mountain Outfitters (now defunct) and they had mosins, mausers, enfields and used and abused shotties for a range of $65-$140. Oddly enough speaking to a guy I know a few weeks ago, he says he has a buddy that owns a gun shop in England with a warehouse the size of a distribution center, filled to the brim with nothing but old rifles in cases, and no way to export them here due to Obama allowing the C&R import/export laws to expire.
In regards to my price point, it is not a naive or malicious attempt to get a rifle, just simply put I know there are people who may not even shoot them anymore, bought them cheap, and they are just taking space, that may be interested in parting with one. And for a first time C&R buyer like me, a lower entry price point ensures I can get a taste of that side of the hobby, and then if it sticks....well you and I will be talking for sure regardless of cost 😂😂😂

What would you pay for an M44 or M38? I remember when I first got my C&R, maybe I can cut you a break. Both are Izhevsk and VG condition, I can post some pictures.

Well, you have extremely nice examples from what I gather and I'd feel ashamed to offer something low, but I'll say this, send me pics of the one you pm'ed me about for $250 with ammo included I'm about to send you my cell number...
