Any thoughts I am looking for a project. It needs to be functioning and complete but it can be really ugly. :D

I bought a 91/30 for $28 one time. It was a beat up '43 Izhevesk but for that price no way I could turn it down.

You mean like this one?:D

Don sent me a rather nice one compared to the others. :cool: I have done everything that I can do to improve its look.:eek: But I am ok with the way she has turned out, for $35 you can't go wrong:).

Mine had a broken firing pin, was missing the butt plate and screws, and the wrist is cracked straight thru top to bottom. Don sent a replacement firing pin and butt plate, but the butt plate is way oversized for my stock...which is probably not salvagable. It's luck of the draw, but it will be a project! I'll either have to buy a 2nd one and hope the stock is better and mix and match or buy another stock elsewhere and refurb the rest. Suggestions?

Oh, for a .22 you could get a Romanian Trainer. I think a T69 or M69. I have one, and they are tack drivers out to 50yds. Plus, they look a lot like a mosin (my dad brought it home, and had the stock seperated, and I thought he got another mosin :))

I guess you don't get it I wasn't even into guns when I got that Marlin.

You can get a Chinese T53 (M44) for $35 plus shipping from Omega Arms. Or at least you could when I bought from them last year.

They will be in NRA "fair" condition. Worn, not pretty, but shootable.
