I am looking for a pre-war or war-time M38 stock
I was trying to think of how to reply to this post and realized nothing is coming out of my mouth...absolutely speechless. If there is a mosin collection in heaven I'm pretty sure it looks like this! Incredible sir. Incredible.
You have a lot of nice firearms...probably the most flat leaf M91's I've seen together so far.
I think I've got to smoke a cigarette! Fabulous collection, I can't imagine what you'll find in the next 5 years...
Remember-Gun control is not about guns, it's about control.
What willyj said!! Tip of the old hat to you.
I thought "gun porn" was an exaggeration...until now.
I know where a few of those came from! Great collection Mitch, you got a good one!

They'll always be a empty chair at the gunshows for you buddy.
Awesome. Thanks for posting!
Now officially collecting Mosin M38s!
BRAVO THAT IS HOW YOU MAKE A COLLECTION !!!
Great looking band you got there. I am jealous of your AZF specimens.
That is an amazing collection. Most of us would be happy with one or two of those( but after we got them we would still want more). Thanks for the great pictures of some really rare guns.
Beautiful collection, Mitch!
You have a very nice collection. Thanks for sharing!
Looking for Mosin 91/30 bayonet ГС4625. Will pay well!
Wow very nice! Many nice items there for sure! So much history! I'd have to go back and see all my posts here to see what I did in the last 5 years lol! That could be interesting!
Always looking for interesting Imperial Mosins! Antique M91s, 91/38s and Imperial dated Nagant revolvers. PM me if you may have one you may be looking to trade/sell.
Not bad for a rookie!
Absolutely great collection
thats what i am talking about. Great collection - thanks for sharing it with us.
You have an incredible collection of fine Mosin Nagant's Mitch. Your collection continues to remind me of why I wish I had known of these rifles years ago. I'm 65 and started collecting 8 years ago and I'm going to run out of time to really enjoy these the way I would have wanted. I've only managed 23 Mosin's at this stage and nothing to approach yours. I certainly am proud of what I have but you have many rifles that would fill some voids for me. The stories these rifles could tell us would be spellbounding to say the least. I'll come back to this post many times for review. Beautiful collection and thank you for posting these.

Mitch, what is a "sest"?
Darned rookies and their cutesy nicknames....
Poor spelling Martin.......He meant cyst! He should see a good doctor to get it removed.
Damn moiser nugant elitists 😂
For Pete's sake Mitch!.....It's Imperial Russian M1891 Three-Line Rifle!.....Leave your muffin-nugget on the breakfast table and the Balkan wedgie in your briefs!
Fantastic collection over a relatively short period, Mitch. Many folks spend decades searching for those items, with limited luck.
Fantastic collection! Thanks for posting!
Some really nice examples of unscrubbed Chatteraults in your collection there; I have always been a sucker for those...!
I have a few unscrubbed; they haven't been as easy for me to find as it seems to be for folks who live on the east coast... -seems like I hardly see unscrubbed Chats for sale anymore for a reasonable price, or at all period!

Very nice sir.
