I shall name this rifle “Eddie,” as in “Murphy,” because it was indeed a bargain at $175. When I got it home I flipped it over to see an unnoticed price tag:
It’s My First Mosin, an M38, missing a magazine floorplate so it’s perfect for the Archangel stock and 10-round detachable magazines that ProMag is supposed to start shipping in March 2013 — can’t wait….
Having never handled one before I am impressed by its handiness — about the size of a Tanker Garand:
It has a surprising (to me) slick bolt; and a ridiculously beefy trigger. Compare to the Garand’s, which looks dainty in comparison.
