    Default $2,500 early condition Tula 1900

    https://www.proxibid.com/aspr/1900-RUSSIAN-MOSIN-NAGANT-MODEL-1891-RIFLE/35310953/LotDetail.asp?lid=35310953&rts=/asp/searchadvanced_i.asp%23searchid%3D0%26type%3Dlot%2 6search%3Dmosin%2Bnagant%26sort%3Drelevance%26view %3Dgallery%26length%3D25%26start%3D1%26refine%3D#t opoflot

    Anyone here pick it up? It was very interesting to watch this auction unfold. I knew this one would sell for big bucks, even with the mis matched bolt and floor plate. Rest of it looks to be original condition for a pre-1908 M91.

    Hammer price seems to have been $2,500 sold to someone on the floor.

    A very amazing rifle!

    I think I saw you call out the guy posting on the FB group about it. I'm surprised it took as long as it did to get someone to post the active auction link.

    I'm sure if one of us got it -we will see a photo set soon. You can't not bragging about owning such a rifle...

    I liked the Winchester on the other auction. Not as much as the winning bidder liked it, but I liked it.

    Caught my eye too. So did the 1916 Izhevsk, though not to the same degree by any means. Congrats to the new owners who ever they might be. Regards, John.

    Besides the mismatched bolt and floorplate, it looks to be in original condition. Never was upgraded with the post-1908 features and still retains the original sling configuration (no sling slots), no cross bolt, and the flat rear sight. Finding one in this condition is incredibility difficult. Not sure if $2,500 + taxes and auctions fees is the going rate, but you don't see enough of these come up to get a real market value.

    It will be interesting to see the front band configuration when you get it in. There are at least two different style of sling swivels. The one in the auction seems to have a much longer shank than on mine.

    Oh, that is a nice one. Like someone said, there aren't many still around like that. The auction had great photos but I'm looking forward to seeing it here.

    Congrats Yuriman.

    I have been amused by the morons on the various FB pages claiming there's no way that old Mosin is worth more than $200, etc. It shows you don't need any knowledge to have an opinion

    Congrats! That is very exciting! I figured someone here had to have won it if they were willing to pay the big bucks! Looking forward to seeing some more photos!

    I bid it up as well. It had some nice features going for it. Congrats on the win. The 20% fee is what stopped me from going higher.

    Thanks for the info. I have an 1895 and 1899, 1895 has the original stock, magazine mounted sling swivel and such. A few DDR marks on the stock, probably not the flat topped sight. I see where one in original condition and that old might be extremely hard to find! I think I'll go dig those two from the back of the safe and look at them a bit closer.

    I like to rile them up in that group. There's a lot of people who believe that Mosins are $60 rifles.

    I hate to sound ridiculous here, but is it the photos on the link or has that stock been sanded? It looks awful light to my eyes. Thanks

    The cartouche is legible and the finger grooves are relatively sharp. Maybe it was cleaned, but I don't think it was aggressively sanded. Sometimes camera settings and illumination can make a stock look lighter in color than would be seen in natural light, as well. We should see pics from a different perspective soon.

    I agree with martin08. Might be lightly cleaned, but the cartouche looks strong and the finger grooves seem to be fairly sharp. I have an early style M91 and the stock is a bit lighter, though not as light as this one.

    I really hope the photos just make it look that light. This is a very nice Mosin Nagant. I've only paid near this amount for one rifle in my collection.

    Could be wrong on this but I imagine the buyer's premium must help to jack up the price as well. Sorta like a surcharge added on to the auction price. Frank
