I recently sold mine. The biggest issue I had was the ammo; it’s all old surplus ammo with many inconsistencies. The other issue was the size. The Mosin is a LONG rifle. Have you ever tried walking through a doorway while it’s slung on your shoulder (don’t try it). It’s old, slow and a bit much to lug around. I must admit, it is pretty accurate though.
Bottom line for me – The cons outweighed the pros and I sold it for $100. I’d suggest a cheap Savage from Walmart if you want a truly inexpensive, reliable, accurate, easy to handle and fun firearm.
Just my $.02
