Wait til a new batch comes in. Then jump on the hand select option asap.

I opted for the hand select knowing that the last Classic batch arrived in late July. I got a decent piece-- but it ain't one of the NIB-looking pieces that they were pulling out of the crate in YouTube vid when the batch first arrived.


I'll post pics of it when I the 85f arrives next week....because I sure as Hell ain't gonna be posting any pics of the early 1957, all-metal-matching, Romanian M56 , PS serial with original  Romanian sling that I screwed the pooch on. dash2

think1   hummm.. well... from an Enablers point of view.....

We're here for ya buddy  thumb1 rofl2

ROFL, Dammit GM, you're going to give the guy an aneurism!  I'm sure he feels bad enough, no need to heap it on.  (although if I was heaping it on and he would have mentioned the original Romy sling in the first place, I would have been all like drool2 doh1 cry2)

I can freely admit I have many a regret in the firearms trade (though not a single one of them a Mosin  chuckles1).  Missing out on the PSA VZ2008s for $399 though...gah that one just kills me.  ireful1

Sorry RM.. Wish I could claim that.. but I digress. twas not me behind the keyboard.. was that little rat bastard Katy Perry lovin fiend  :))

Dammit Jimmy :o your gonna cause him to pop a brain vessel..be nice.

but wait.......go read Mr. Badinov's opening post. 4th line down...he openly admitted and stated there was a sling included in the package from the get go..

Original well worn romani sks sling.

So.. a Romanian leather dominatrix whip sling, super sexy matchy drawers raising Romanian with PowerSurges initials mashed in it in some weird format.. Jimmy is justified in the hardtime and should be vindicated of charges... thumb1


Yeah those Vz2008 are nice... :P Still I say you need a Mosin....but I cant get no donations...the RM Needs a Mosin GoFundMe is dryer than a popcorn fart. rofl2

Laugh!  Jimmy I cry your pardon.  Totally missed the sling in the OP.  Though with a tag at $499, how much lower would this gun have gone?  I don't think I would have pulled the trigger at 5 Benjamins for a replacement stock Romy...even if it was a PS prefix.  thumb1

I'd say it's very close to market.. 50-90 dollar hard sling to find thrown in..leaves 410-450ish for the rifle, a little on the high side, but one might have been able to go and throw 475 in green bills on the counter and scream OTD, going once...going twice. BS and green paper talks and BB coulda walked...but any lower for a slung Romy.. I think would have been an unobtainable lowball to an educated seller.. So there might have been a little wiggle room....just very little.

I'm sure the seller had figured in cost of the sling.. that kind of nullifies the mismatchy stock....the serial prefix.. the seller possibly had no clue unless he researched that. Surprised the seller didn't go a little retard.. put said rifle on the sales floor for 499....throw the sling on an auction site for 50-75 bucks...raising his end profit.


oh well... no use crying over spilled milk...or missed Romanians.. :)
