Picked up the mosin for $110 OTD, but i got to inspect all the bores and look and pickup all of them, which is something you can't do through mail-order. I'd delt with the same guy before and knew he didn't sell crap. When you figure in shipping it's all about the same either way, and this way i got to hand select. The AK74 is the Knife btw... It's the same that Thunderbear had posted online a few times before. Spring action at the push of a button. Nice strong action and metal frame with a clip. I picked it up for $40, which is about what i'd pay if i got it online w/shipping. Tell me how the bore is on these two pics below... of the 3 i looked at this appeared to have the best rifleing.
