Why my wife rocks!!! Answered

Picture of

Because, despite being a liberal democrat (yeesh) she, to answer the question "what do you want for our anniversary?" spent three weekends sojourning to various gun stores to find me (libertarian libertine) my hearts desire. And here it is, a 1943 Mosin Nagant with matching serials. I need to check the headspace and refinish the stock, and then I'll take it out shooting. Unfortunately, for the sake of my grades, I told her to hide it away until after finals. ~sigh!~

Well, mine has crashed the checking account for the last time. I am moving my paycheck over to a personal account. This living hand to mouth is just not my bag ;-)

My wife does that to a limited extent, but she buys me gifts to show affection, and she wants me to have "nice things", which drives me nuts!!!

My wife will buy me a gift just to justify her spending extra money on herself LOL Usually it is something a really don't want ... after 16 years, and she still doesn't know me very well. :-(

Wow! A Mosin Nagant! At a shooting range in the mountains I went to, I shot the gun a few times. Very fun!! Also, in Call of Duty, I believe they had this gun when i used to play. Pretty good shot, for the long ranged guys hiding in houses! :p

Can you research the history of an individual gun (through serial numbers or whatever)? Could this gun have "seen action", maybe somewhere significant, or been issued to a significant individual?

Finding the particular history is unlikely, they produced nearly 2 million in 1943 and something like 20 million over the 17 years of production. I'd think, having been produced 2 years before the end of the war it probably saw action. It's got beautiful wood under a coat of shellac so I'll strip it and refinish with a boiled linseed/beeswax finish whilst attempting to preserve the cartouches. Next will be a "Smelly" enfield like my dad carried. Paid $150 ,slight premium over the net price of $99, but decent factoring in the transfer fee, background check, shipping, etc.

A Mosin Nasgant is a good gun expecially if you are into colecting ww2 weapons.Next year ask for a 98k Mauser or a Lee Enfield which are equaly sweet guns.
