Nutnfancy Mosin Nagant video - Thursday, July 07, 2011 5:18 PM ( #1 )
...He just made a 50 minute video about the Mosin Nagant. I didn't expect him to make a video about a gun without any plastic on it, esp. the Mosin Nagant. I will probably watch the entire video when I get around to watching it. 


**Edit**Ok, I see a plastic stock is in the video screen below. **edit**

Well, I got 40 minutes into it before I got bored....well, thats a lie. I was bored from about the first minute but I managed to push thru and last til 40 min.

in a nutshell, he likes it for those of you who dont want to spend the time to watch it.  I'd like to get a mosin for the upcoming deer hunt.

You might want to get that now so all the cosmoline is cleaned out by the time deer season takes over.

Oh and watch out , I have seen 91-30 rifles going for over 250 at Gander Mountain. Look around and you can find some great prices.

$250 is insane!  There's a well-known place here in AZ that sells 'em for $89-120 on a regular basis.  The only one above that is the sniper variant, which is up in the $400 range if memory serves.

Yeah Big 5 in AZ generally has these for about ~$100.  They just don't have the shock pads for the butt of the rifle so you don't have to have your shoulder reseated after every shot.

Oh it was crazy on the prices, I have also seen them at gun shows where guys were trying to sell them for 200 to me, and I would laugh my ass off. I have also seen 1200 dollar Draco pistols there too.

Yes, the price of the Mosin Nagant is going to rise just like the SKS.  Here in California, back in the '90s, the SKS went for a $100.  Now, my local gunshop will not sell them for under $400. One reason is the balance between supply and demand. Simply put, as they are purchased by Americans, the supply dwindles and that makes the demand greater than the supply. And we all know that's all the market needs to raise prices on any item in a capitalist market. Finally, as the supply dwindles, they became rarer and that is also a reason or excuse to raise a price. 

As time passed they became more expensive. Even though people said they were crappy. One reason the Mosin Nagant is underestimated and berated is that often a person doesn't want to admit that a 60 year old, $100 rifle can actually compete with their brand new, American made $700 rifle. We all get that attitude sometimes. 

It was just a couple of years ago that the German Mausers were the Big5 $100 weekly sale item and they've become more expensive. 
The Mosin Nagant will do the same thing. As we can see, it is already happening. I say, get a few of them at $100 while the getting is hot and save them for ten years and you will double your money on each one, at least! I said it, and then you just take a look at this forum posting ten years from now and remember I said it.

Ok, I just watched the video and I really liked it because I just happen to have this rifle. 
His reviews are well spoken and articulate, that is what separates him from the numerous other reviewers. I don't think he rambled in this video; he is known for doing so. 
The one point he made that I really find poignant was, "...Learn to run it as it was intended." 
It reminds me of that one expression "beware the man with one rifle..." 
i am reminded of how the Taliban effectively removed the highly equipped Russian military from Afghanistan just a few years ago. They are not as well equipped as the USA and seem to be a present source of frustration that may prove to be the root of victory for them, against a global superpower, once again. The Mosin Nagant may not be able to hit an Aorta or a chosen Ventricle or Atrium at 100 yds but it will still prove to be capable of fatal chest wounds at that range. 



Here are a few thoughts, quotes and paraphrases i wrote down while watching the video.
 
-Each rifle is unique in its accuracy and reliability
-Unlikely to gain in value
-For the price and ruggedness it makes a good ‘beater’ gun
-An enjoyable ‘project’ gun, accessorize to your heart’s content or leave it simple.  spending a lot of money on it may or may not be justifiable as -compared to just buying something a little more costly
-A practical alternative for WROL, practical as a ‘burial rifle’
-Does well as a Budget level hunting rifle
-7.62x54R is somewhere between a .308 and .30-06
-8-9 lbs
-“pretty decent” iron sights
-“Learn to run it as it was intended”
-Short length of pull
-Stock rubbed his cheek raw at one point during recoil
-Stripper clips suck, prefers hand loading the mag
-Rimlock occurred
-Only 5 rounds, but powerful round
-Doesn’t find corrosive ammo to be a problem to those who are committed to cleaning their rifle
-Accuracy with surplus ammo…
25 yds one hole shot group
100 yds smaller-than-fist sized shot groups
3-4 in groups on average @ 100 yds
-Decade after decade this rifle has seen use in battle
-Clean the bolt and barrel for normal maintenance
-Good idea to lube the mag spring too
-Detail strip and degrease for first cleaning
-Likes his 1” red dot sight on the rifle; good for dark situations
-Inexpensive ammo
-Downside…Stiff bolts, mediocre trigger, limited optic options
-Intriguing, historical, sentimental value

With which new American-made $700 rifles do you think the Mosin Nagant can compete?

Ok, my ignorance is showing. I'm sure you can come up with a ton of points to contradict my statement.
I will say that the Mosin Nagant can be just as effective as many other higher priced modern rifles within certain conditions, such as hunting or offensive/defensive situations. Sure you don't have the rate of fire as any semi-auto rifle. But as RD's signature says, "Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything" 
Remember the man with the one gun theory.
One bullet one kill.
