i have a couple Mosin rifles, kinda like the 1917 Enfield they grew on me. first one i picked up from a guy walking it through a gunshow..45.00 with 5 boxes of ammo.
ugliest rifle i own, and shoots as good as any milspec bolt gun i own.
its my behind the seat loaner rifle, and i have loaned it out, the look i get is WTF is this..hey..dont forget your ammo, rifle or scope next time,,and each time its taken Elk,
iv truned down some stupid money for it..last offer was well over 600.00
nope..she,s the back up..if you need it. its a killer.
the second is a Remington 1917 model, with sling and bayonet..iv only shot it once, and it shoots very well. better with the bayonet attached i must say.
love them old clunky guns..

I wanted to ask him how many rounds of corrosive, mercuric, glass-filled primer ammo his pre-WWI springfield had fired in the past before it got spoiled with 168 SMKs but bit my tongue. I don't think he was really serious but you never know.

Good book to read on the Finn gear of the Winter War and Continuation War is
Rifles of White Death: Finnish Rifles by Doug Bowser, 1998

If you have a chance rent or buy the DVD - "Fire And Ice - The Winter War of Finland and Russia". It is a really good production. Very informative.

Here's the one I picked up about a year ago. Not NEAR as nice as bd1023's, but a "been there, done that" look to it that I like.

@Rick, back in the day, when arguments over who was more the beauty, Sophia Loren or Anna Magnani came up, my old man went with Magnani all the time. To quote him "now THAT was a WOMAN !" Magnani was the earth mama of Italian cinema.
