When the Obama admin. banned Russianicon imports a few crates of these were rerouted to Turkeyicon where they sat for all these years; they finely made it to the US. When they were first released they were going for $350.00 handpicked near the end they pushed up to $399.00 and people were still buying them. I got one from a shop I do a lot of buying from for $325.00 (discounted) I'll put a pic up if y'all want it . its got a layer of cosmoline still, I wiped some off because I didn't want to caca up my gun safe too much. Came with the normal stuff, matching bayonet, sling, oilier, cleaning and tool kit. I don't even know why I bought it, to be honest. I'll never use the rifles and it will more than likely remain in the cosmoline until I sell it or die.

    I've seen people trying to sell them for over 400.00 and that's is a nuts price I agree, when you can still get them for under $350.00 if you just take your time looking. Of course, those are People Republic of California prices which are higher for everything that goes boom or bang, or even pew pew.. If I bought out of state it would cost me an extra 35 to 65 transfer and 30 up for shipping.

    Ah well, you see, after the vast majority have been cleaned up by those who don't want to dirty up their gunsafes, clothes etc, those still smothered in Cosmoline are going to become RARE!

    And one day, we will be reading posts about scammers using FAKE Cosmoline!

    Just wait!

    That depends on what you consider premium .vs where you live. Gas in California is $1.00 to $1.25 more in California then it is in El Paso Texas which raises the cost of everything else in CA. Guns are no exception

    How about these Mosin Nagant prices for a cut-off receiver and parts! Cheapest $189.95 to the most expensive $499.95

    Well now every ;location has different prices. I should know as i hit different shows in different states Knowing Steve an how picky he can be the rifle is probably perfect an at the right price. Beater/shooters are now in the 250 to 280 range. 300 to 350 are nice matching rifles, Collector grades go 350 up .
