Ok, don't bite my head off on this. Personally I feel that these weapons are still viable, as weapons go, but I'm just a young collage student, who
knows almost nothing about weapons (I'm learning). Anyone care to throw up their oppinion on the subject?
The first gun I ever owned after I moved out of my parents house was the Mosin Nagant M44 carbine in 7.62x54r.
It was manufactured in Tula Arsenal factory in 1944.
It's a BEAST. Bolt action, 5 gigantic rounds and a bayonet. I paid $70 for it in 1998.
I still own it. I still shoot it, and it's brother that I purchased just this year. It is still a beast, and it's still one of the rifles my friends
always ask me to bring with me when we go shooting.
Get one, and get 200 rounds of russian surplus ammo for it. Then get a cleaning kit. As long as you clean it and treat it right it will last forever.
