I get this IMA advertisements email pretty regularly. Sometimes I look at them for the show of fairly exotic military arms and accouterments and to get an idea what top retail prices look like in the US. Today was a shocking pleasant surprise. It listed a M91 full length battle rife Mosin Nagant for an eye popping $1495 in a Finn modified stock complete with SA mark. It was only the hand grip stock end and not a full makeover like the M39. It was a Tula version. And... was already sold by the time I opened the advertisement.
Gee .. the NEW with the SA marks I got for about $80 a couple of decades ago must be worth at least as much. The stock is original American walnut not restocked on my rifle.

Most milsurp rifles seem to go for ridiculously high prices these days compared to what they were worth not too long ago. I don't think I could afford what I have got if I had to pay the prices that people are asking now.
