I'm currently in Colorado visiting family. In Arvada (where I grew up), I stopped in a LGS and on a consignment stand I saw a Mosin Sniper. Picked it up and found, for the most part, matching, even the scope base, though I didn't check totally. Bore was excellent. Izhevsk 1944. Price was 499.99. I snapped it up. After doing the form on computer then paying (total with tax and background check fee (?)), total was 550.00, which still was a steal to me. Then the salesman said it would be in the safe...huh?? Seems that the background checks have a 2 day plus backlog, so I didn't even think to take pictures. Once I get it, I'll send pix.
