    I know, I know, you're all just going to jump in here and say "well what do you expect for $55?" Well...not this:

    To start out with, I was greeted by UPS with this shit:

    Labeled for your viewing pleasure:

    The box was crushed, along with my spirits. I opened them up anyways.




    I wasnt expecting accessories, but they sent them: They also included a neat little bore light/laser pointer thing that drives my dog insane.

    And now onto the guns :hs:










    Brace yourselves....

    They are fucking MINT. I honestly dont think I could go buy a new rifle that looks as good as the one on the bottom. The middle and top rifles look shitty in comparison, but they are in just as good of shape, only they have more cosmoline on them. There arent any huge dings in the wood, and only like 2 or three minor ones. All the numbers match, and the serial numbers that the importer electropenciled/whatever on the receiver are consecutive on all three. I cant wait to get these things cleaned up, but it will probably be 2-3 weeks before I get a chance :o



    Oh, the disappointing part about this whole thing is that I didnt order more of them :mamoru:


    :bowdown: To Centerfire Systems for the awesome deal, and :bowdown: to BMW1600 for pointing it out

    $55 each. After shipping and all that jazz, it came out to ~$64 a piece.

    about a week ago. They ran out pretty quick, but have their laminated ones on sale for $69, which is really tempting but I dont need another M-44......yet.

    :rofl: got me good. Nice score man. I really should have gotten one of those. I have about 1.5k of 7.62x54 I just found in the back of my closet that I had forgotten about buying a year or two ago. Hopefully I'll find someone who bought a bunch and wants to get rid of their extras :x:

    Not too crazy about the M44. Shorter barrel and that bayo adds more weight

    i must admit, after seeing the condition of the box i must have looked at the pics at least 3-4 times.

    i kept saying to myself "jeez, nothing LOOKS wrong" :hs: :o
