Two new ones I picked up this weekend, the M91/30 is a Tula Arsenal Rifle with hardwood stock made in 1940. I'll get better pics of it later but the receiver is beautiful, no nicks or dings, never been shot and very clean. For $69 from Big 5 it was a good deal. The M95 Steyr pictured was bought the same day, from Big 5 for $79. Polished stock, came with a Bayonet, also in amazing condition.
I'll get better pics when my friend returns my camera.
I've never heard that phrase before but I'm assuming you're refering to the sporterised stock. I don't like it either, but I got a hell of a deal on it that I couldn't pass up. A new stock is going to cost twice what I paid for the entire gun.
I like that Makarov. I know a guy who's got a Chinese Makarov. It's pretty nice for its age.
About how much did you pay for it?
Wish I could of got one while they were cheaper a few years ago... $325, 4 eg magazines, and it came with German police papers pre and post unification... according to the papers it was still in police use till 97 in Germany.
