On That $1,900 Mosin

I am amused at how many people on arfcom feel that it's not worth the money.

I'm watching a Remington in better shape creep up on $1,500 on Gunbroker...

A couple of people claim to have nicer ones.  But aren't posting pics, so...

At least one guy has sent a pic where the arsenal rework square is clearly visible along with Tula markings on the bolt.

Another is equating the unaltered NEW gun with his minty Finnish gun.  Not the same thing considering the Finn is definitely reworked and probably doesn't have many parts that were original to that barrel (it might not even be the same receiver that barrel left East Springfield attached to); not to mention all the extra proofs and stamps the SA would add.
