    I'm looking to pick up a rifle. Deciding between a Mosin 91/30 and 795. The Mosin looks great, but I won't be making any mods aside from maybe a scope. The 795 is a 22LR semiauta.

    I would say go to the shop, and make sure the 91/30 is in decent condition first.

    Is Big 5 wrong or is the 91/30 really 7.62x39?

    And a quick disclaimer: When I went to get my M44 from Big 5 the morning the sale started the one I had picked out the day before had mysteriously vanished off the shelf only to be replaced by 2 in horrible condition. I managed to get a raincheck on the sale price and when I went back the next week low and behold the nice one I wanted was back on the shelf for the original price of $160. So if you arent sure about buying it, go ahead and get a raincheck.

    No. I think it is the Nagant Revolver Model 1895 that you are thinking about. And its a weird size of ammunition. Come to think of it the Revolver is 7.62x38N. Ive looked hard to find new production stuff but no luck. But you can use some other ammo in its place.

    Why is Big 5 so good for surplus rifles but totally sucks for ammunition prices?

    They're probably a part of the "give em all the guns they want but don't let them have any ammo" conspiracy that will effectively disarm us eventually, anyway :noes:
