The best book on this subject is The Ignorant Armies by E.M. Halliday. I believe it has been republished under another title, When Hell Froze Over.

IIRC, the 339th left their rifles and ammunition for the local White Russians, when they finally packed up and left.

I remember the first rifle I ever purchased was at a gunshow with my father (i was 16 in 1996) I wanted something foreign, old and long; found a table full of M/N rifles. They were all priced $45 and I avoided all the "American ones with english writing" and chose a nice Imperial Tula from 1898 and Boxed SA capture mark.

Not that long ago, decent ones (not the "new" ones you see today) were $39.95.

I think you did well. An 1898 Tula would probably bring as much or more than what I paid for my NEW.

Toward the End of WWI we sent troops into Russian to destroy/protect stock piles of weapons to keep them out of communist hands. These troops were issued Mosins.

From the book: "Freedom Triumph" 1919, The Why, When and Where of the European Conflict.

Not to reopen an old thread, but I just purchased a 1943 M91/30 Izz. What a blast to shoot!! My son and I had a great time....it really reminds me of when I used to hunt with a Krag as a teenager. I'm a convert!

True that Rick,

I can remember Century Arms having a 3 for $99.00 sale on 91/30's back when I had my C&R FFL. And that hasn't been that long ago.

This one I bought went for $99. I can't imagine 3 for $99!
