    Stopped by the local Dunhams sporting goods today on my way to a church dinner :rofl:

    They had a few deals going on which piqued my interest.

    I'm no great lover of Russian weaponry, but this is what I found.


    1) Mosin-Nagant 91-30. Basic stock in servicable (horrible) condition. No nicks or scratches in the clearcoat that I saw but there were plenty of dents, and sling slots had been carved clean through the stock. Ugly, but the color was decent and I think there might be some life left to the wood.

    Inner receiver and bolt surfaces looked very clean and bright, no cosmoline or excess oil buildup to speak of.

    $119.00



    2) This is a Hungarian AMD 65.

    Parts seemed in decent order, trigger broke very cleanly (light!), action was sharp and also clean.

    Polymer lower, foregrip and magazine. True folding stock (that part's metal). The fore-end is skeletonized.

    The magazine shows some wear and tear... and that shit would not seat properly for the life of me until I opened the bolt. Even then it was not held securely - don't know if it was the magazine release not engaging fully or just a cheap magazine but it wasn't fireable by any means. Sights looked good though. Scared the pants off of some dad walking his kid through the sporting goods section too. He was looking at paintball guns, and then I wheel up this tacticool monstrosity in profile to him. I laughed.

    They're asking $649.00 for it. I'm thinking about offering them $575 since the thing is obviously used and since the magazine is so shitty.

    What would you say?

    ADVISE ME BITCHES.

    The 91/30 seems a bit high, but the way things are going these days, you minus whale.
    IMHO 91/30's shouldn't go for any more than ~$75, but that's just me.

    I can't talk much though, I picked up a like-new M44 from Gander Mountain for $99. :dunno:

    I'd offer $500 for the other one and go from there. No personal experience, just how I feel right now, lol.

    Value of 91/30 depends on year, reciever, and markings.

    As stated above you can get brand spankin new AMDs for less brand new. classicarms.us sells them with 3 polymer mags (30s and 20s) for $575.

    You shouldn't have told me that. I just saw all the K-11, K-96/11, and K-11 carbines that they have :wtc:
