    :noes: Don't know what to do. I can get an original 91/30 pu sniper w/scope for $800 which seems ridiculous, but which will probably hold value or appreciate, and is cool as fuck.....or I could build an AR, possibly a dpms .308.

    The only reason I'm even considering an $800 nagant is that if I'm going to start collecting rifles I want something worth having. I think a "sniper rifle" collection would be cool as fuck if you had really nice stuff. Maybe track down a russian tigr, M21, etc. This seems like more fun than picking up the latest flavor of the day plastic pistol every year.

    I like sniper rifles and have a few. Problem is, they're all expensive as fuck and get boring to shoot.

    Personally, Im only buying stuff right now that I'll have fun with. The 03A4s, L42a1, No.4Mk1(t), G43s, 91/30 snipers etc etc havent been shot in years.

    Like I said, Id buy what I want to play with now, then something to look at later. Our stuff doesnt get taken out much and then you looks and see you have $50k in sniper rifles and they just sit in a dark safe.

    You can send me the G43 I'll take good care of it :x:

    I agree with ya though most of my precision bolt rifles only get shot a hand full of times when they come to the range then I shoot something more fun.

    Unless you really want it for the rarity and collectability I'd just pick up a regular 91/30 and throw the scope and mount on it.

    Honestly, I'd get the Nagant Sniper. The AR is nice, but you will spend a phenomenal amount of money on ammunition for it. I have an AR, and two Mosins and I really like the old bolt guns. The AR will probably be regulated soon enough, so that is one reason to get it.
