    Going here tomorrow and looking at these

    http://www.mgsdfw.com/shop/category.asp?catid=C&R RIFLES

    just to hold me over till I get an AK later this year, which is the Mosin model I should get, i see M44/ M91 M38, 91/30 etc

    Looking around $150 range

    What is the differences, what should I look for, since I will get to pick what I want.

    or on page 2 they have a SKS..

    help me decide :)

    Actually, 91/30 is not the fullsize model. It's about 5" shorter than the M91. The M44 and M38 are about 5" shorter than the 91/30. When I got mine about 5 years ago they were only $50, you can get one for like $80 today. Any more than that and I'd just go with an SKS. You can get an unissued one for $130-140. Yugo SKS's are the best bang for the buck IMO.

    If you are looking to use it for range/target, then get the 91/30. I'm looking for a 91/30 right now, but I want a Dragoon/Ex-sniper model.

    I am looking at this one place since I can go pick it up, pickout what I want and they run right about $100

    I like SKS's but with getting an AK, it would be like would I really need both, i want something different.

    Nagant ammo is plentyful isn it?

    Look for the usual stuff, like: no cracks in the stock, no rust/pitting, good amount of rifling left, matching numbers, undamaged crown.

    Also, try to one of the more rare ones: http://7.62x54r.net/MosinID/MosinRarity.htm

    Mine ranks a 5 on the rarity scale.
