I heard tell that the /k/ommandos here were very generous and have given guns away before. Sirs, I am extremely poor and much desire a nugget. Is there anyone here who would have a beater to donate?

Not being snarky here, genuinely want to know.

If you can't afford to buy a $240 rifle, what is the point of being gifted one? Cheap surplus ammo runs about $225 a case plus shipping, and commercial ammo you're looking at .75 and .90 per round, and only going up from there.

So like...if you can't come up with the dosh to buy it, how do you plan on feeding it?

Reminds me of when Russia started flooding the US market with cheap loads of Mosin-Nagants and crates of 7.62x54r ammo in the early '90s. A friend bought a crate of M44 Mosin-Nagant carbines for around $25 per rifle back in 1993 or so and he sent them to many of his shooting friends for Christmas presents. I got one in the mail and the bolt handle had popped through the side of the cardboard mailing box. Quite a stocking-stuffer! Now, Mosins are expensive and the ammo is even more so and difficult to find at the inflated prices.

Some enterprising cabinet-makers and carpenters have turned old Russian WW2 Mosin-Nagant rifle crates into coffee tables.

Twenty Mosin-Nagant 1891-30 rifles in a crate.
I remember crates of 20 M44 carbines were being advertised for around $500 ($25/rifle), back in the early '90s.
Sure, these were beat-up, but arming two squads of riflemen (or range pals) for $500 was awesome.

Need to focus your priorities to get yourself out of the being extremely poor situation first.

Not sure where you've read/hear OpChan are generous and have given guns away. You have been misinformed, generous? Yes OpChan is very generous when it comes to sending aid/supplies to OPERATORs in dire need.

Giving away guns, no. Serv gave his gun to border patrol, Frost pawn a BPEARv1 which surfaced on Armslist once. Some great deals of firearm sales were made in /trade/ take a look there.

What state are you at so I can take a look there to hunt for good deals for you.

>>102362
I've seen beater nugget in Armslist for like $180ish (this is just an example)
> $225 with 8 clips worth ammo

BG do you have info on the text/label on the side of nugget crate? I recently clean out part of my garage and plan on work on the nugget crate this summer, I want to give it a new coat of paint and touch up some of the text/labeling on the side. Waifu has a Cricket machine so we can cut out some really nice stencils for redoing the text/label

If you can't figure out how to obtain the rifle, you can't figure out how to feed it.

You might want to work on your poverty situation first. That's kind of the first step to being able to afford things.

Guys I heard you were very generous, please buy me a case of match ammo for my ~$2k AR, I am very poor and can't afford it.

"The first iteration of bat was invented by J. Presper Eckert and John Mauchly at the University of Pennsylvania and began construction in 1943 and was not completed until 1946. It occupied about 1,800 square feet and used about 18,000 vacuum tubes, weighing almost 50 tons"

You got it backward man, he rob the place with a pistol first (8/27/2011) then came back with the nugget (1/19/2012), that's why it's odd about it, wasn't sure if going to nugget is an upgrade or downgrade
>> No. 102524 ID: c11034
If prices for nuggets have gone up so much how much would you guys say mine is worth?

Finn M91, Tikka barrel (1940, SA marked...think most are tho), Re-used Russian M91 sight (arshins are crossed out on one side) with the added 200m adjustment, decent bore, one "early style" barrel band and one "late" both with retaining screws, import mark on muzzle end of barrel (C.A.I), "matching" barrel and bolt but the mag is not, original manufacture markings on the reciever are scrubbed but you can still make out the eagle marking (assuming that is what it is)

Looks like it has seen some shit in it's life. Pretty fun to shoot. Plan on using it for deer this coming fall.

Think I paid $250 for it when I first got my C&R almost 10 years ago. Never going to sell it but I am curious what my you guys think it is worth.

Here's my mosin crate. Getting the glass and LED setup and cutting wood added about the price of a mosin to the crate. I still haven't gotten around to painting it yet even after a few years, which I'll need to take better pictures when I do.

With its original lid. Fitting the glass top was actually kind of annoying, because I was an idiot and thought the crate was square and only measured two sides. Turns out Ivan really doesn't give a fuck, and the asymmetry is bad enough that the hinges are 4 inches off from each other.

Sometimes, I'm tempted to buy some wood and build a crate right, but then it wouldn't have that "close enough" Russian je ne sais quoi.

I got in right at the tail end of 91/30s. Always bummed I'm too young for cheap M44/K98 RC/SKS crates. I was tempted to pick up a K31 crate from aim a while ago but for 400, a crate is too rich for my blood.
