    M38 = $65
    10 rounds of 195 gr Heavyball 7.62x54R = $3
    The look on your friends face after they squeeze the trigger = PRICELESS

    It's had some use, good lands and grooves, bore was dark before I cleaned it now it's so shiny it hurts my eyes.
    Numbers match except the bottom of the mag is a forced match.

    Also it's a 1940 Tula

    That wood looks amazing. I hate the huge electropencil pencil jobs they do on these now.

    i remember when i got my mauser the cosmo was so packed in you could hear the firing pin sludging through it. after detail stripping and cleaning it, it was a great crisp drop.
