    Default 1944 Izhvesk ex-sniper

    I was at my LGS yesterday and they had several 91/30 mosin nagants for sale. I checked them out and they were either 1943 or 1944 dated Izhvesks. Found two 1944 ex-snipers among them but the LGS had also noticed and had priced them at $319 each. The others were $229. What is the going rate for an ex-sniper today? Needless to say I passed but I am still curious if that was an inflated price in today's market.

    This spring (2016) some really nice Ex-PUs were selling on the trader(here) for 250$ to 300$, as I recall. "PU sniper rifles" were built on separate production lines, with higher quality than ordinary infantry rifles. Over here where I live, our best shooters are ex-PU's, and I don't think it's just a happy coincidence. Attachment 2040730This one a 43 Izhvesk ex-PU, shoots figure eights with boring regularity.Attachment 2040786My son shot this pumpkin, from a kneeling position at 100 yards. He used the iron sights, on his 44 Izhvesk PU .

    Yes they made the PU snipers in runs of 5000 of so rifles at a time.I don't know if they had lots of barreled receivers ready to go at certain times or what.One thing is for sure Russian forces used a lot of snipers during ww2

    I sold a handful of ex-snipers here in the MarketPlace last July/August. Dunno if the current prices are higher or not.
