I had an appointment at the VA in Greensburg this morning, I stopped at Gander Mountain on my way home. They have four Mosin-Nagant 91/30 rifles in the rack for about $175.00 each. I know the price is a little on the high side. They also had one of the cheap Remington rifles with the gray stock used in 3006 for under $250.00 Just passing the information on.

The Mosin can be had around $100. As for the Remington (model 770). IMHO its garbage. No disrespect to Remington and the quality firearms they've produced in the past, but they dropped the ball in a big way with the 770. I would rather cut it up and turn it for scrap than trust it in the hands of loved ones. Just my two Cent

Both statements are very true, However In the last couple years I have not seen a Mosin on any of the forums for less than $150.00. This Remington is junk in my opinion as well. However as I said I posted these as information only.
I also see used Hi points pistols, on the forums selling for new prices. And for some reason they sell. Here again some guys love them, personally I would rather have a sling shot.
There are two reasons anyone would want the Mosin or Rem, a collector, or they can not afford anything better.
Personally I am a collector of old military rifles. As well as several Mausers I also have a very nice Mosin 91/30 I know I paid too much for, but I did not want an abused piece of junk.
I have an ad on here for a Mosin M-44. J&G are selling them in VG condition for $199.00. So you would think one could be found for $150.00, private sale. However this is not the case, All the replies I have received for my ad have been $225.00 to $300.00.
I am not knocking anyone for trying to make a buck. But the days of the $80.00 Mosin or Hi-point pistols or for that matter most any cheap gun are in the past.

I completely understand and respect what your post was for. I was giving my opinion on the 770 in case someone with limited knowledge came around. IMHO, Ruger American and Savage Axis are the best 2 choices. In the 250~300 range.

Widener's has Mosin 91/30's for 120 bucks.

True however if you do not have an FFL or C&R now you need to add $30.00 to $50.00 for the use of a dealers. Then add $20.00 for shipping. Now the $120.00 rifle is at best a $170.00 rifle.

True if you buy from GM you will have sales tax and FFL, however most deales charge much less if you are buying from them. I believe my last FFL from Dunham was less than $10.00.
