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?

102372
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.

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.

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

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.

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.

SKS crates were a thing back in Vietnam, too.
SKS Cache - A U.S soldier in Vietnam with a freshly opened crate of captured SKS rifles. Note the spike bayonet, rather than a blade type. These are more than likely Chinese supplied Type-56 models. You can occasionally find Vietnam War captured bring-back SKS rifles, some with the proper capture documents. And they go for a pretty penny, too.

Yeah, the Swiss Schmidt-Rubin K31 7.5x55mm straight-pull bolt action rifles got expensive when they got popular, years ago. I had a cheap Austrian Steyr M95 straight-pull 8x50mm rifle, but I gave it away when the ammo got scarce, back in the '80s.
For WW2 bolt-action rifles, the US Springfield 1903 is just too expensive. The Mauser K98k is fine (I used mine hunting deer with the standard iron sights and it worked quite well). The UK Lee-Enfield is a fine choice, but getting a good quality Australian post-war No. 4 Mk II is expensive.

Considering Trump campaigned on protecting domestic manufacturers from specifically Chinese competition, I highly doubt the Norinco ban is going anywhere. Which sucks because their 1911's aren't supposed to be half bad. Stupid Canadians get to keep buying it all...

>I had a K11 (IIRC, Tactikool wound up with it)
And I still have it, thank you!

G11s (or 96/11s, theyre basically the same thing) are the best discount swiss rifle imo. Their bolts are smoother and the recoil a lot slower than K31s, and generally are very pleasant to shoot, as well as the long fucking sight picture to boot. You have to be okay with a 30" barrel'd rifle though, which I think are sexy as fuck, but such opinions are unpopular.

The rule with milsurp is basically, you get one chance to buy it for cheap, and in some cases that window can be just a few hours long, or in the most extreme case with the AIM manhurins a while back, only a few minutes iirc. (Someone on here got in on them, Jedi, was that you?). Other than that, it'll cost a noticeable amount more but the flip side is you can inspect (or at least see pictures on gb) so you have a much better idea of what you're getting. I personally don't mind paying the extra to make sure I get something in good condition, but I guess that's not true for everyone, and some things can be really hard to get after market, like the Jordanian S&Ws that came on for really cheap but never were seen again (Still huge THANK YOU to RaceMixer for selling me his, I still havent seen one pop up on gb)

The crown seems ok.

The stock doesn't look too bent, but it definitely contacts in the front. I have a hard time believing that thin piece of wood could push that thick barrel enough to affect accuracy.

I'm going to go to the range again tomorrow to help my buddy sight in his new Vortex 1-6, so I'll shoot again and see what happens.

I experimented with K31's a few years back.

You can actually make the barrel completely free floating with minimal effort.

Coupled with pillar bedding and some trigger work I was able to get some truly fantastic groups.

With Diopter sights.

It was mostly luck.

I meant to do that with my K31s, but sold them first. They were more accurate than I was with irons, so it probably didn't matter.

Did you try it again? I'm curious if was a problem with the weather or the gun itself. I also can't hurt to check the action screws and even barrel bands. I can't imagine that would have an effect from shooter to shooter, but if things are loose you might get odd results from shot to shot. My CZ 527FS had that issue when I first got it - the rear sight was tight in the barrel channel, and once the barrel heated up, warped slightly, and tensioned against the stock the gun patterned. Some filing/sanding in the barrel channel pretty much fixed it.

Nope, didn't shoot again. My buddy probably had some honey-do's to take care of. I might have just been fucking up that day.
