    I have a Mosin-Nagant M91/30, made in 1942, never really been fired (maybe 3 or 4 shots by me), great condition, has bayonet and cleaning kit, was wondering where I could trade it for something else? I waas thinking about trading it for a Mosin M44, I like the smaller size, but same round. What other rifles do you think I could get for it? Or, would it be better to just sell it? I bought it for $120, too much in my opinion, considering what most of them go for. One guy said he would only give me $50, that was at a gun trading store though. He would probably resell it for $150. Where could I get the best deal for it?

    Online they're anywhere from $80-100. I'd try to sell it online to someone for $70. You might be able to trade someone for a m44.

    I dont have an FFL license or whatever you need to buy/sell guns online, so is there any other way? Or, how would I get the necessary license? Im 19, live in Texas if that matters.

    You don't have to have any sort of license to sell online. Find a buyer, find out what FFL they want it shipped to, pack the gun up and ship it there. If you have any hesitations you can have a gun/pawn shop ship it for you.

    Best thing would be to find someone who wants to trade face to face in Texas. No need for a license or anything, it would be as legal as trading baseball cards.

    I got a 1943 91/30 in excellent shape with the $20 extra for "excellent hand select bore" for $95 shipped to my house. Even with the $25 ffl fee, a person would still be at the $120 you're wanting for it. Sorry bro :hs:
