They've went way up in price over the years. How much are they asking for Hex recievers now?

The reasonable online sources like AIM start at $360 for a hex.  I couln’t image what a place like Cabela’s wants.

Yeah, no telling. I remember when you could get them for less than 100 bucks a piece. I love'em because they're built like a tank. Russian tank!

I have had a few stumble in. I wish I had not been so young, broke, and busy when they were cheap. Same for AKs, Enfields, and Mausers.

Though one could say that the AR  is sorta filling the cheap surplus role currently.

At one time I considered buying a case of Mosins.  Kinda wish I did now.

BTW, there really is no such thing as a surplus AR.  Same goes for new manufacture Russian steel-cased ammo...not surplus.

Funny thing is, Finn's are not going up like the Russian "slathered in orange snot" rifles are. Makes no sense.

The casual Mosin buyers probably never heard of a Finnish variant, and most of them don't frequent the collector forums.  Marketing being what it is, the few Ukrainian rifles that are occasionally trickling in, as well as the remaining imports that seem to be surfacing from obscure warehouses are being hyped as the "last" of the rifles that a lot of consumers are familiar with, thus the current prices ...

For the price that the Finnish Model 39 and various Russian models are going for now, I think I'll say no.

I LOVE m39s but have to agree.

I would pay $450.00 for a nice Finn M39 before $300.00 for a plain Jane Russian 91-30.

Agreed, but $450 M39’s are more difficult to find ...

Yikes! I paid $89.00 each for both of these hex receiver Tula's a few years back. And both came with bayonets and all of the accessories. In all but perfect condition.

$150.00 don't sound to bad. I need to get some more ammo before it goes completely insane in price like the rifles.

I think they also have some rifles at $200, but the condition may not be as good as you want.

So, people really will pay that kind of money for cans of surplus.
