Went to an estate sale today that had about 45 Mosins, 1 Mosin sniper, and 5 Yugo (I think) SKS new in the crate still in Cosmo each one had matching numbers. 2000 rounds of 7.62 54 in Russian spam cans, but I had no idea of value or which ones might be more desirable. Couple guys were trying to make a package deal and buy them all.
550 for the SKS
350 and up for the Mosins
150 per can for the ammo.
I bought nothing.
Thanks.

1100 for the sniper but they were taking a percent off some of the Mosins.

I'm not an expert but I've been checking prices the last few months as I'm getting ready to sell mine. I see for typical good condition rifles about $250 to $300 for round receiver Tula and Izhevsk. Tula can command a touch more - Tula has the star stamp and Izhevek the triangle in case you didn't know. Nice condition stocks can bump it up to $350. Generally, they should have a bayonet, oiler, cleaning rod, tool kit, oiler and ammo pouch. I have not seen hex receivers lately but those tend to command a premium. Finnish ones an even greater premium. $150 for a 440 round tin of ammo is about right. $300 to a little over for 880 rounds in a crate would be normal. I've seen more asked for but the prices above is what I see things selling at from my searches.

you have to be careful with the snipers because there are put together ones and real ones. Obviously real ones worth much more.

The SKS price is about 100 bucks too high IMO.

Thanks, I know nothing about them so thought I would seek some help here. Seems I started the thread in the wrong place as well.

As stated, do your homework on the snipers. Here is a good example...one is real and one is a repro. Only way to tell is in the details.

Mosin Nagants are interesting and fun rifles to shoot. They have the distinction of having probably the longest service life for any bolt action rifle. They were used by Russia in both World Wars, and by other countries for years afterwards.

While rather crude when compared with US, British, or German military bolt rifles, they were certainly rugged and reliable - not to mention fairly accurate as well.

During World War I, Mosin Nagants were made in the United States by Remington Arms and by New England Westinghouse. When the Bolsheviks took over Russia in 1917, and Russia made a separate peace with Germany, the contracts were defaulted upon. The US government stepped in and bought up the remaining stocks of Mosin Nagants and designated them a US rifle.

After World War I, most of those US Mosin Nagants were sold to members of the National Rifle Association. For years, those old rifles were the only ones known in America. It was with the fall of Communism in Russia that so many of today's Mosin Nagants (and surplus ammo) became available.

There are quite a few different models of Mosin Nagant available and their availability make them a quite affordable collection rifle.
