    Mosin pricing seems to be climbing. Allan's Armory has generally had pricing that is near the market but with a small premium for his time of inspecting and photographing the firearms. Say a local pawnshop gets in a crate of Mosins and sells them for ~$120. The dealer isn't out much trouble other than cracking open the crate. Allan inspects the rifle, reports his findings, photographs them, and places the info on his website for purchase. Common sense dictates that he might sell a rifle for $150 while others would ask less.

    Anyhow, he has some Hex laminate Tulas on his site now averaging $275. Just a few months back we bought some very similar rifles from him for around $150. Is the writing on the wall for the Mosin or do you think he's getting in on the frenzy?

    Im not sure. But when the stockpiles dry up the prices will rise very quickly and people will say "damn i should have bought one when they were cheap!"

    M44's dried up after the 2008 panic, those and M38's. Now they are few and far between.

    I think it was AIM surplus that has it where they may throw in a few hex in the crate at no charge. However i think they can specifically ask for hex and there is some up charge. Either way hex are more expensive but shouldnt be $125 more.

    If Russia ever runs out of Mosins, it'll be a Miracle. They are one if, if not , the most produced weapon in the world.
    AIM has some T-53s in, and M44s a few days ago. Cheap prices, like 89.00
