I got a hex with laminated stock 6 months ago for $119, they're going $175-$225 now. I say get 'em now while they are still (relatively) cheap....these are starting to become a halfway decent investment.

(A rare model Finn capture went for over $2K recently and a very rare Springfield Arms non-refurb Mosin recently went for $4050.00 on Gunborker!)

What does "Bores may be a little dark" mean?
It means that it is a Mosin. I don't think the peasants did a very good job of cleaning. I have never seen one with a bright bore - if I did, I would assume it had been excessively scrubbed and accuracy would suffer for it. As long as there is no rust, a dark bore is fine. It is 70 years old after all - most of that time in storage.

It means its a bit shot out, but still good. Remember that these rifles were not meant to be all that accurate. They were made so that a illiterate, uneducated, onion farmer could learn how to operate it, maintain it, and hit a human someplace between the belt buckle and the neck line with most of their shots. That is no exaggeration either...

With that said, for that price, you can't go wrong. Most places sell them for $175-$250. I was recently in Cabellas, in Arizona, their price was $199 for about 40 different Mosins. There was only 2 I would have paid that price because their resale value to a collector like me would have been North of $300. This was because they were unique and had features a collector would appreciate.

Now, if you get yourself an FFL03 C&R, you can go to sites like TheMosinCrate and get one directly for a GREAT price. Word of caution about the FFL03....you will empty your wallet and fill your lockers real fast. I usually buy 2-4 rifles at a time with mine and then I wait for the Brown Truck to show up before the wife knows what's going on.....

That's not dealer pricing, call them to change to dealer pricing. They will need your FFL 01 to update your account. Account must be a dealer account to get the pricing.
