    I was poking around online doing some research on Century's Mosins and I found this email post from 1995:

    "Century Arms has M91/30's in excellent condition for $39.87 each."

    If only I had a time machine...I'd be back in 1985 buying/building as many machine guns as I could, I'd worry about C&R rifles 10 years later.

    I bought my first SKS for $79, and it was a Yugo. and buy 7.62x39 for 74.99 per 1000 back in the days. Fresh from Surplus stock, drenched in Cosmo.

    The good old day to me were the days my dad should've been buying $500 FA AR15's and goodie bags of HK FA parts by the dozen.

    I'm worried some day I'm going to be wishing I bought semi automatics by the dozen :big grin:

    Please don't make me cry about C&R.

    Any time a new C&R product is offered I am going to buy it. Those fucking Polish Mosin .22 trainers that went for a song earlier this year are fetching $200-$300 on auction sites. I saw one for $350 at a gun show this weekend :hsugh:

    Better idea, if you have the cash, buy two, keep the best one and sell the other when the price goes up.
