    Biggest thing is using the proper ammo. The 1889 doesn't use standard 7.5x55 Swiss and needs to use downloaded ammo. Just making sure your aware as it could have some pretty bad results otherwise.

    I had one a few years ago in very good shape I bought and sold for about 1k. Kinda wish I hadn't sold that one as it was a lot of fun.

    The 'slamfire' possibility is basically just if you haven't cleaned your firing pin out and there is cosmoline in the bolt preventing the firing pin from moving. It is a non-issue, if it wasn't they...

    I don't understood the demand for 'hex' receivers. The more I Mosin collecting I did the more I realized it literally means nothing except it was made before ~1936.

    I had one guy in a USA gunshow try to explain to me why my Turkish converted M98 bayonet wasn't worth the 60$ I paid. I was happy because in Canada that bayonet is about 120$+

    I recently got myself a Type 2 M1 Garand which I had the joys of taking out of the grease (can't wait to shoot it more once my range opens up again). I am shocked at just how ergonomic this rifle is....

    I think there were more left in original configuration than 1%, just your odds of seeing them in the USA are much lower. Most the ones left intact would likely have been given away as war surplus/aid...

    That serial number indicates it is a Swiss 1900 luger from 1904. I am not a Luger expert by any means hopefully someone can come along and provide more details.

    Couldn't help you with value. Even though it is rarer it might not be worth anything more than your average M43 Mauser simply due to lack of desire for it. Best of luck.
