At a recent gun show in my area, 91/30s were going for $600-$700. No M44s visible at all. No Enfields. One SKS (Chinese) for $700. A couple of scrubbed Arisakas in less-than-appealing condition. No M39s. The last time I bought a milsurp rifle was three years ago, when I snagged a really outstanding K98k RC Mauser for $500.

And it's not just the guns themselves. A jar of BLC2 powder set me back $45, and primers were complete unobtainium.

I was front row center during the milsurp floods from 89 thru 2005 (?). Having seen what happened up to the 1968 GCA i took every advantage i thought reasonable at the time and glad of it.
Same here. It was obvious that historical rifles like Mosins and Enfields were ridiculously undervalued. So even though I didn't have a lot of money at the time, I bought whatever I could afford, And every time Iook at my collection, I pat myself on the head.
