I recently came across this Mosin at a local pawn shop. It’s a 1921 Tula with hex receiver, and it’s numbers-matching. Overall, the stock was in pretty good condition. The only possible issue with it was that the upper hand guard was a bit loose or “flexy.” I couldn’t examine the bore well, unfortunately. Bolt was solid once locked in and glided open pretty easily. They were asking $589 for it. Looking for something to shoot occasionally. I’m relatively new to military surplus rifle collecting and figured I’d gather some opinions. Buy or pass?
